Hollister AMD Qualifier Custom Bike Show

Biker Pros, the nation’s largest producer of custom bike shows, today announced that they have agreed to produce the Hollister AMD Qualifier Custom Bike Show in Hollister, CA on Saturday, July 6, 2013 for Worldwide Dynamics.

Biker Pros is the North American Bureau for American Motorcycle Dealer (AMD) and produces affiliate shows across the United States.

The winner then has the opportunity to attend the AMD World Championship in Germany by winning the FreeStyle class and becoming the TEAM USA representative.

Hollister AMD Qualifier Custom Bike Show

The AMD affiliation draws world-class custom motorcycles from the Mid-West and West Coast. Styling influences from Arlen Ness to Cole Foster and everything in between will be on-display at the center of the rally running down the middle of San Benito Street.
The word Hollister has been synonymous with California motorcycle rallies for decades. It secured its place in pop culture from the 1954 film The Wild One with Marlon Brando, which is based on the 1947 rally. The 2013 Hollister Rally Revival reboot includes 30 bands, ACE Café, Manufacturers row, demo rides and so much more.

“The entire Biker Pros team is excited to be part of the revival at the Hollister rally and is looking forward to showcase the incredible talent in California,” said Bob Kay, Biker Pros Partner. “Many of the outstanding custom bikes that are coming to the show have required hundreds upon hundreds of hours to construct.”

The show presents six classes including FreeStyle, MOD Harley, Radical Bagger, Performance Customs, MOD Street and Retro MOD. A total of $7,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the class winners. Professional and amateur custom builders of choppers, cruisers, bobbers, baggers and race bikes are invited to enter their bikes into the competition and judge each other’s work.

How it all Started

Ed Kretz of Monterey Park, CA was its first winner, riding an American made Indian motorcycle and averaging 73.34 mph. Kretz also won the inaugural City of Daytona Beach trophy.

Facebook has algorithms in place that decide what content should be highlighted in a user’s news feed. To make the algorithm work for you, incorporate these 3 tips.

Facebook Number of People Saw Post Tip #1 – Avoid posting links as links. Instead, upload a large-sized photo and put the original link in the description of the picture.

Facebook Number of People Saw Post Tip #2 – It’s a good idea to put the link at the beginning of a photo’s description as Facebook will only display the first 3 lines of the description in the news feed.

Facebook Number of People Saw Post Tip #3 – Keep track of what images people respond to. Test, test, test.
