YouTube offers bikers’ eye view of Hollister rally

Videos posted by rally attendees give unique view of annual event

The Hollister Motorcycle Rally on the Fourth of July weekend brought tens of thousands of bikers to San Benito County, and quite a few of them recorded portions of their visit and posted videos to YouTube. What follows is just a sample of the videos available for viewing, ranging from helmet-mounted cameras that give the perspective of what it was like to cruise the streets of Hollister, to hand-held camera shot at various biker events.

BenitoLink contributor Lois Locci found the videos online and said YouTube has many more. 

"Because each videographer filmed on a bike, taking different paths thru downtown streets (not south county), I got to 'participate' in the event from many angles, probably much more than walking around that day," she said.
