1947. The AMA had been running races in the area since High Speed WiFi
the 30’s with no issues. These Gypsy Tour Motorcycle
Rallys were a great way for riders to gather, socialize and 888-570-9676 | 707-986-7521
party.  However, after WWII, the popularity of motorcycle
riding skyrocketed, mostly driven by the many WWII innofthelostcoast.com
veterans returning home. The 1947 Hollister Rally had
one major challenge – a completely unexpected massive
attendance.
For the 1947 July 4th weekend, it is estimated that over
4000 bikers were in attendance. With the small city now
beyond full capacity, the city’s resources such as food
and lodging were consumed and those without lodging
were forced to sleep in the city park, and some were even
reported to have slept on sidewalks and on people’s lawns.
This negative depiction of bikers created quite a stir in
Hollywood which helped to make an anti-hero out of actor
Marlon Brando, who played Johnny Strabler in the 1953
film “The Wild One.” Along with his arrogance and the
devil may care attitude, Brando unknowingly fueled the
popularity of what today is known as the biker or motorcycle
lifestyle.
Continuing tradition for “the birthplace of the American
Biker” & “ the Wild One Saloon” local business’s,
industry sponsors and experience promoter under direction
of WILD ONE PRODUCTIONS LLC secured Bolado Park
Event Center to host the NEW HOLLISTER RALLY and
“the 47 Camp Ride” (named after the now infamous
1947 “Hollister Rally”). “the 47 Camp Ride” features a
great venue with updated amenities, RV & bike camping,

North Fork Salmon River State of Jefferson Flag in Callahan

State of Jefferson RIDE DESTINATION:
Yreka – Etna – Cecilville – Coffee Creek

This month’s ride has been in the works since the
latter part of last year. We just couldn’t get to it before
the winter weather set in. Now, with the arrival of
spring, we were off. Cindy had a commitment that
kept her from coming, so I asked Stan (Owner/Editor of
TRM NorCal) if he wanted to get out of town for a few days.
He said, “let’s go” and we made our way up I5 to Siskiyou
County.

Like many towns in California, Yreka came into existence
as an old gold mining town. The unique name is said to come
from the Shasta Indian tribe (hence Mt. Shasta.) Although
Mark Twain mentions that the name came from a painted
canvas sign with the word “Bakery” on it that was stretched
out to dry in front of a bake shop. A traveler came into the
early camp, saw the sign from the reverse side, but did not
see the “B”, and thought it was the name of the encampment,
and the name just stuck.

Miller Built Performance
Bikini Bike Wash

May 11 (Cameron Park): Mike Miller and his crew rolled out
the red carpet for all to come see the new shop on a beautiful
Saturday afternoon! Miller Built Performance had recently
moved from out by the local airport to this much bigger and
nicer location on Saratoga Lane. The party started rolling at
noon and the vendors and music by One Leg Chuck (IG @
onelegchuck) filled the large parking lot. I caught a whiff in
the direction of the BBQ at Awakenings Ministry booth - so
I had to get some! Boy did I get a plate full with a tri-tip
sandwich, beans and potato salad - it really hit the spot.

I just got back from a 3 day ride through the Trinity Alps and
the bugs and dirt roads had left my bike looking like it was
in need of a bath. Fortunately for me, there just happened
to be a couple lovely ladies there to remedy my problem by
way of a bikini bike wash. It sure did save me a lot of time

Thunder Roads Magazine® Northern California 16

not having to wash it myself, so I made
sure to leave them a good tip! Out in
the street in front of the new shop, the
stunt riders were getting going. It is
always fun to watch as these guys test
their equipment and skills to their max.

Miller Built Performance has a great
reputation in this area for taking good
care of their customers. Inside the
new shop is a nice size lobby with
parts and accessories like Miller Built
T-shirts; plus a much larger mechanics area to make it much easier for working
on several bikes at once. So get on up Hwy 50 to Cameron Park and give this
shop a visit and while you’re there pick up the latest issue of TRM NorCal. We
had a great time hanging out and ran into several folks we had not seen in a
while. Thanks to Miller Built Performance for the fun day and see you all soon.

10th Annual SOSWMC Rabbit Run

April 13 (Marysville): It was a beautiful, sunny day for the
annual Rabbit Run. Sisters of Scota Women’s Motorcycle Club
has been raising money for the local foster children sending them
to Camp Rockin’ U at Lake Francis Resort in Dobbins, California.
This was year 10 for this event and the best yet; the turnout, love
and support from the biker community was amazing! SOSWMC
put together 123 Easter baskets filling them with candy, games,
stickers and toys. Many thanks go to this year’s over-100
sponsors including Coca-Cola, Walmart, Pack and Post Center,
Walgreens Yuba City and so many more.

The Rabbit Run had about 150 riders on its run. The hour
long route started at the Golden Eagle Store #2 where sign-
ups are held. First event of the day is the bike blessing and a
yummy pancake breakfast served by the Christian Motorcycle
Association. Thank you to the Christian Motorcycle Association
for breakfast, the Bike Blessing and winning Most Participation.
The route traveled through scenic countryside in the Sierra
Foothills and ended at Lake Francis where the festivities began.
Thank you to Sister Vanish for a safety talk and then safe pack
ride through the foothills.

There were 50 foster children who participated in an Easter
egg hunt and received their choice of an Easter basket. Then
they have their own kiddie pizza party. The Swankmasters Band,
a tight sounding rock band who volunteer their talents every year,
got the crowd going. Awesome raffle prizes were given out and
a delicious Easter meal of ham, turkey and all the fixings were
enjoyed by all. California President Banshee, the raffle prize
coordinator, and all the Sisters collected $3000 worth of raffle
prizes and donations this year. IronLou with the Ironworkers M/C
won the Founder’s Choice Award for his beautiful custom Harley
earning him a double stacked trophy.

2nd Annual RIDE-ON-MOTORCYCLES Block Party

May 4 (Vallejo) The corner of Sonoma Blvd and Maine
Street was blocked off around Ride-On Motorcycles as
the streets were rumbling with the sounds of motorcycles
heading there to celebrate with the crew and customers
of this esteemed NorCal shop. Ride-On Motorcycles
recently expanded into the adjoining building. They
now have the entire building on this busy corner of
CA 29 in Vallejo. This shop has 15 lifts for repairs and
maintenance and more used bikes for sale than I could
count. Check them out - your next ride just might be
there waiting for you!

Thunder Roads Magazine® Northern California 22

When we arrived, shop owner Mike Rivas and his friendly staff would stop briefly to greet guests that rode in - and then

it was ‘business as usual’ as they continued to wrench on bikes. This event was sponsored by The Law Tigers as well as

having Dana Levine being very instrumental in helping to pull this event together. There were vendors, music, a cool car

show and a solid lineup of bikes for the bike show. So there was a lot to see and do between touring the new facility and

possibly picking up some ROMC swag wear from their store. continued...

A block was barricaded off to traffic on Maine Street for
Jason Pullen Stunts. Jason, his beautiful wife Angela and
some of the Out Here Crew entertained the crowd with their
amazing stunt riding skills. By the time they were all done
- the asphalt was smoking! Speaking of smoking, the grill
masters were hard at it grilling up burgers for those with an
appetite…for FREE!! Thanks to Mike and his crew, we had
a blast hanging out for the day!

Recently, we took a little day ride over to Forest Knoll
in Marin County to pay a visit to Hatt’s Motorcycles. It
is always a good time to hang out with Bret Hatt and
see what new projects he has cooking, but the main reason for
us to go there was to do a photo shoot on this beautiful 1957
Pan Head that Bret customized for Steve Sanders as a tribute
build to his wife Christine who had recently passed away from
cancer. We ran into Steve in January at the Easyriders Bike
Show in Sacramento and where he told us about the inspiration
behind this bike. So we were really hoping that we would get
the opportunity to share the craftsmanship and the meaning
behind it with all of you. At the time of the shoot, Steve was in
the middle of a ride around the country. We are sure that it was
a much needed therapeutic adventure that will bring Steve some
peace after such a huge loss. This special motorcycle will live
on as a thoughtful tribute to his wife Christine in remembrance
of the memories made and of the lifetime sharedcotnotignueetdh.e..r as
husband and wife.
