In the central valley of California, July means Hollister! As the local rep for Biker Doo Rags.com it was my pleasure and duty to visit and introduce our product to the vendors... We're not really in a position to book a concession this year but have big plans for the future. Anyway, back to the ride. I went down on Friday, July 11th by myself to rep our stuff to the vendors... The crowds were not so large on Friday so I was able to get around w/ some ease and got some great photos of some of the bikes on display. As I had an appointment in Merced later in the afternoon I wasn't able to stay too long... One sour note, on the way back to Merced I was given a ticket in Los Banos... They were still feeling the heat from an altercation a couple of weeks prior between the HAs and the Mongols in a local park so the enforcement was ratcheted up a notch or two... Otherwise the ride was fun... Across the valley and over the Pacheco pass. It's pretty warm in the valley and then on the pass things start to cool down, a real relief from the valley temps... Down the hill, past Casa de Fruta and on into Hollister... Ask anyone who comes in from that direction...
