His thoughts as heavy as the humid night air Searching for an answer to sooth his soul The question that had him pondering life Was how could a man his age feel so old He wondered: Could it have been all the partying? Could hard work have diminished his years? Could it be the fights that put aches in his bones? Could it have been living free of fear? Could it be the nights of sleeping on the ground? Could it be the downtime that he served? Could it have come from trying to please everyone? This included the family he loved Could it be the nights the wind chilled to his bones? Could it be the limp from a road rash scar? Could it just be the gray starting to change his long hair? Could it simply be life’s hassles from destiny’s star? A cool breeze hit him as he rode through the bottom He smiled at the relief from the dense heat The answer was as clear as the moon above No matter the age, being a BIKER is hard to beat © Bob “Bikerwolf” Bryant RSOA ™

She looked me up an down, then with a frown She sniffed haughtily the air. I heard her say, “It would be a nice day, If that scruffy biker were not there!” I sat astride, my shiny Harley ride, and hid the anger behind my smile. As I looked her over, leering like a gypsy rover But with all the flair of biker style. I saw her blink, when I gave her a wink. “The audacity!” she stuttered “You biker dudes, are OH! so rude” “And you are a prude.” under my breath I muttered. Upon her face a stare, as if I should care. “So would you like a ride?” said I. She turned ashen white, really quite a sight. and she stammered, “Why?” The reasons I give, are the way I live. and these are but two that I share. On the road without a care, the wind in my hair. And the thrill could be yours, if only you dare. She smiled just like a child, but I knew she was riled. for she still looked the same she sighed” you rejoiced, when we were divorced.” “what the hell” she whispered “it’s part of the game.”

New Day Dawning

Calming Effect no destination if I could ride the wind this fever would die down I'd find new roads to travel somewhere to belong suck the night air in and listen to the song rubber on the gravel maybe a hundred strong ya, if I could ride tonight I'd let my hair blow free go where the road leads until the morning's light

Years and miles Have taken their toll Upon this graybeard's body Yet still I ride Into the cold Of a New Year days arrival No idea if the road ahead Will be graveled or paved Only way I'll ever know Is by shifting through the gears Through blood sweat and tears Past pain loss and sorrow And roads once traveled alone Forward motion in the saddle Into the new day that was dawned

CRACK UP’S The Costume Party

A couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween party. The wife came down with a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was to take some aspirin and go to bed, and there was no need on his good time being spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for one hour, awakened without pain, and as it was still early, she decided to go to the party. In as much as her husband did not know what her costume was she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every woman he could find and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there. His wife sidled up to him and being a rather sexy babe herself he left his partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new stuff that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished since he was her husband. Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had a little fun. Just before unmasking at midnight she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior. She was sitting up reading when he came in and asked what kind of a time he had. He said “Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you’re not there.” Then she asked if he danced much. He said, “I never danced once. Pete, Bill and I went into the den and played poker all night. But the guy I loaned my costume to sure had a real good time!”

Bearly Possible

A 90-year-old man was having his annual checkup and the doctor asked him how he was feeling. “I’ve never

been better!” he boasted. “I’ve got an eighteen year old bride who’s pregnant and having my child! What do you think about that?” The doctor considered this for a moment, then said, “Let me tell you a story. I knew a guy who was an avid hunter. He never missed a season. But one day went out in a bit of a hurry and he accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun.” The doctor continued, “So he was in the woods and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him! He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear and squeezed the handle. And do you know what happened?” Dumbfounded, the old man replied “No.” The doctor finished, “The bear dropped dead in front of him!” “That’s impossible!” exclaimed the old man. “Someone else must have shot that bear.” “That’s kind of what I’m getting at,” replied the doctor.

Bra Size

A very flat-chested woman finally decided she needed a bra and set out to the mall in search of one in her size. She entered an upscale department store and approached the saleslady in lingerie, “Do you have a size 28AAAA bra?” The clerk haughtily replied in the negative, so she left the store and proceeded to another department store where she is rebuffed in much the same manner. After a third try at another department store in the mall, she had become disgusted. Leaving the mall, she drove to K-Mart. Marching up to the sales clerk, she unbuttoned and threw open her blouse, yelling, “Do you have anything for this?” The lady looked closely at her and replied, “Have you tried Clearasil?”

Sorry Boys, No Men Allowed!

Women And Their Strength

Ladies, Welcome to a brand new year; 2016 is upon us. I was sitting at my computer trying to

figure out what I should put in my Chic Chat article, then I started looking back through some of my past articles and came across one I did for our November issue 2014. I began feeling a little nostalgic because twelve short years ago my mother met Jesus face to face just one day before we rang in the new year of 2004. In this article I spoke of my mother and shared some of her own personal struggles. I want to share this with you once more because I think it is important as women to stand on our own two feet and embrace who we are and what we stand for. As you read through this piece again, I want you to take a moment, stop, take a breath; look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself one question; “Do you love who you’ve turned out to be and would you change anything about yourself?” Okay, that was two questions. This would be more of a mental questions more than a physical one. Most women would change something about their physical appearance. Look into your heart and mind. All season long I have chatted with you about various things that us women riders would general talk about. Things like, why did you start riding your own motorcycle and how far you have traveled on your bike to what not to say to a women rider. But the thing is, just because we are women and we ride motorcycles doesn’t always mean that that is all we want to talk about when we get together. It would almost start to get a bit boring. So, we are women right? What do “Women” talk about; “Life”. We talk about families, kids, careers, what’s troubling us and even our significant others. There is this certain connection that we have with each other; a confidant perhaps. There are things that a person of the opposite sex just won’t understand or at the very least can’t relate to. A women’s mind is a deep cavern of twists and turns; that anyone dare to enter is doing so at their own risk. We are complex individuals that can be unpredictable and predictable, strong and soft all at once. From a very young age we were taught to be a lady; to walk and talk like a lady. My Mother, for example, was taught by her mother to always be a lady. She always had to be in a little dress; never getting dirty. She always had to be prime and proper. That’s what “Men” wanted. It was almost as if my grandmother was playing dress up with a doll.

“You capture a man by your outer beauty. You keep a man by your inner strength.” C.Blanton That might be okay for the exterior, but what about the interior? How do you teach a young girl that you need not only the beauty and poise on the outside, but the strength and beauty on the inside? My mother did not learn this until she was an adult. And she still struggle with every day of her life. One thing that she did vow was that her own daughter will not know that same struggle. She taught me how to be poised in the outside and how to be strong on the inside. When teaching someone to be strong, it comes from allowing them to fall. Now, don’t get me wrong. My mother didn’t just throw me to the wolves and tell me to be strong and fight. She merely allowed me to make mistakes and learn from them. When you are faced with adversities, you have to make a conscious choice. You can either crumble and fall or figure out a way to overcome it. Eleanor Roosevelt said it best – “A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” Another favorite quote is by Author Nancy Rathburn – “A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts.” “The strength of a women; let it never go underestimated!” C. Blanton

ow’s it going Full Throttle readers, Zach White here from St. Charles Harley-Davidson to give you the latest and greatest info from St. Charles Harley-Davidson. Hope you enjoy the end of the year and looking forward to a new year with all of you. This month I’d like to feature what’s been going on back in our service department as we have been performing a lot of heart surgery’s on the Harley-Davidson Big Twins. Harley-Davidson and Screamin’ Eagle have now made what we have all been looking forward to for years and having the same motor that comes on the Harley-Davidson CVO’s (Custom Vehicle Operation) from the factory. Any of our clients out there that have a 20072016 with 96” or 103” with a 4-3/8” stroke flywheel Harley-Davidson Big Twin can now put a bolt-on, yes I said it BOLT-ON 110” motor without removing the engine from the chassis and boring of the cases like we had before the 2016 Harley-Davidson dealer show in August of this year. Let’s get started on what all comes in this new Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle 110” tire shredder kit. The Big Bore 4.0 “ Bolt-On Cyclinders, Forged 10.5:1 Compression Screamin’ Eagle Piston’s, and SST Piston Rings are the big change this year and what make this New Stage V come to life. Also the perfect match for the Big Bore Cylinders are a set of Screamin’ Eagle SE-259 cams, a 58mm Throttle Body with High Flow Fuel Injectors and CNC-Ported Factory Cylinder Heads with 1.875” stainless steel intake vaulves and 1.575” stainless steel exhaust valves along with reshaped valve seats and High Performance valve springs to accept the bigger lift cam. To make sure the motor is built to last, also included in the kit are the HighCapacity Roller Tappets and Perfect fit Pushrods. To make sure the clutch doesn’t slip during LAUNCH it also has a Heavy Duty Clutch Spring. The Screamin’ Eagle Pro Performance Super Tuner is the final piece to the puzzle that will make sure there’s enough fuel delivered and spark and timing is correct. Here are a couple other upgrades to your Harley-Davidson that aren’t included in the 110” Tire Shredder kit that I would recommend that will only make your machine run that much better. We will need to find your favorite style of High Flow air cleaner that will work best with the 58mm throttle body. Along with air flowing through a set of Screamin’ Eagle or Aftermarket High Flow Exhaust help get the air out and enhance exhaust gas scavenging and flow. Inside the heart of your

Page 26 www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com

Written By Zach White

Sh redd er Big Twin we can install some Screamin’ Eagle Pro Rocker Arms that feature a lift ratio of 1.725:1 verses the stock ratio of 1.65:1 and increase valve opening and enhance power output for the 110” displacement. While we are inside the Cam Box replacing the cams it would be the perfect time to upgrade to the Screamin’ Eagle billet cam support plate and High Volume oil pump. This increases the oil supply by 16% and the scavenging by 29% over stock so you know the oil is getting where it needs to be. A small item but a big MUST that can come back to haunt you later in the Cam area is upgrading to Screamin’ Eagle High-Performance inner cam bearings. Now is the time to upgrade to the Screamin’ Eagle Variable Pressure Clutch that will help keep the added power from the 110” Tire Shredder Kit to the pavement. The numbers that have been coming out of these Screamin’ Eagle 110” Tire Shredder Kits are amazing! Our Dyno Tech Specialist fine tunes the bike on our amazing NEW DYNO, the DynaJet 250IX with WINPEP 8 software. With a High Flow air cleaner and a High Flow exhaust we have seen numbers ranging from 90-115 horse power and 117-125 ft. lbs of torque. These numbers can vary depending on some of the 100’s of choices you can make between air cleaners, cams, and exhaust systems. So be mindful of your selection when building as they may effect the outcome but best bet is to just come see me and Ill help you through every step of the way. As always I would like to give a big thanks to our techs and our clients here at St. Charles Harley-Davidson for making these machines come to life. Looking forward to next month and what’s new here at St. Charles Harley-Davidson. Give me a call or come in and see me Zach White, to set up your personal consultation to have our Factory Certified Master Technicians take your Big Twin under the TOOL and have your Heart transplant ready for Spring. Thanks again for taking the time to read this and come on by St. Charles Harley-Davidson and ask for me Zach, I’m here to make all your Harley-Davidson dreams come true!

elcome back Full Throttle readers and riders! Well this “off season” has really been anything but that, it’s been a bit wet but no snow as of yet and the nice days have outweighed the ugly ones. Hell, we hosted our first St Charles Harley-Davidson guys’ night out on December 10th and I was very impressed to see 40 plus Harleys on the lot to join us on such a beautiful evening! As this time of year rolls around I normally have the cover on my bike and my battery tender plugged in with the ole girl tucked in for the season. This abnormally warm winter has had me peeling the cover off weekly. Storage might not really be needed this year but let’s talk about some of the precautions we can take to make sure our rides are ready to roll when spring hits! Talking about putting the bike up for long term storage is always a touchy subject. Some will scoff and say, “real bikers don’t store bikes” but the truth of the matter is when the mid-west turns into a winter wonderland I myself am gonna leave the ole scoot in the garage. Sometimes we could only be a few weeks in between rides or it could be many months! Even during the summers months some of our two wheeled friends sit longer than we would care them to; whether it be a street machine or our dirt machines. Let’s make sure we all take the proper steps to keep our machines in tip top shape so they are ready to fire when we are ready play. There are a few things we are going need to properly store our bikes. First things first, a breathable bike cover. Harley offers a variety to help you cover and protect your bike. Now most of us keep our bikes in a garage year round and one might ask “then why would I need a cover?” well it helps keep dust and derby off your bike and may help protect it from any “oops” situations that may happen while rummaging through the garage. Be sure to give the bike a good cleaning before throwing that cover on. Leaving any dirt, grit or moisture on the bike while storing may cause unwanted corrosion! Next is something I know many of you have heard me preach about over and over. Go and spend yourself $39.99 and get a battery tender. Our Harleys require the largest cold cranking amps out of any two wheeled vehicle in the market. You simply plug it in and forget about it. The tender is more a trickle charger to charge a weakened battery and maintain an optimum charge, it can’t be used to jump or revive a severely depleted battery. Most say they only use their Battery Tender in the winter, as for me, if I’m not riding my bike is plugged in.

Not To Store??

Article By Marshall Tucker

The batteries these days can run up to $200 dollars and will only last about two years unattended, with a battery tender it’s possible to get 5 years plus out of a Genuine HarleyDavidson battery. Now that we have the proper tools to keep the bike covered and charged lets chat about some proper procedures to take when storing. You always want to make sure you treat the fuel when storing. I recommend using a fuel stabilizer or Fitch fuel Catalyst when storing, as we know when fuel sits over time it starts to become less combustible. With the help of these fuel additives and catalysts the fuel strands stay short, excited and very combustible much like they were fresh out of refinement. After adding your additive of your choosing make sure you fill your tank all the way to the top as any space may leave room for moisture from condensation to build inside the tank and that’s never a good thing. Always be sure to turn off fuel at the petcock if applicable. I always recommend changing the fluids before storing. This assures a few things like removing any particulates from the motor that may have built up over the riding season. You don’t want those metal flakes just sitting around. Also by doing so you know you will be ready to roll without a care the moment the time calls for it. Always remember to use the proper weight oil for your bike. Most of the new bikes are just fine with the 20w50 or SYN3 but if you are running a classic or pre-EVO they would be better off with a straight 40 or 50 weight depending on the temperature. Now there are some extreme actions that can be taken in the event that one needs to store for extended periods of time. Scissor jacking the bike up off the ground to remove weight from the tires is recommended as this will keep from creating flat spots on the tires as they sit. You may want to “fog” the pistons and cylinders and cycle them once by rotating the rear wheel with the plugs out. This will help lubricate the pistons and cylinders and prevent any surface rust that may try and form. These tips are here to help ya should you choose to store the bike for the winter and to those who are riding year round be sure to check those tires for the proper PSI, check all your lighting before pulling out of the drive way and be mindful of those cages. As there are fewer and fewer of us on the road we exit the mind of those in cars so be aware. If getting all these things done isn’t in your busy schedule or maybe you don’t have the means to properly store your bike, call us up at St Charles Harley-Davidson at 636-946-6487 and we can handle all your storage needs for a nominal fee. Thanks for stopping by and yall enjoy the ride!

1965 Mercedes Benz 220SEb Coupe Finished in highly desirable Alpine white with red leather interior 3 owner car with extensive service history since new Same family ownership for 24 years Desirable 2.2 inline 6 Cylinder Bosch fuel injected engine 4-Speed manual transmission Over $50,000 in restoration and service receipts 1 of only 2,793 units produced in 1965 European specification model MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this well documented three owner 1965 Mercedes-Benz 220SEb with over $50,000 in restoration and service receipts. The finish of this dramatic Alpine white coupe defies its age and would be comfortable as a daily driver, weekend driver, or car show participate. This vehicle is 1 of only 2,793 of 220SEb from 1965, (the final year for the model) and spent it’s first 5 years in Germany. Powering this European spec Mercedes is a SOHC sixcylinder engine with a Bosch mechanical fuel injection system and features power front disc brakes, power steering and a rare and desirable manual transmission. The Mercedes-Benz 220SEb first showed up in the late 1959, was the third of the models to share the identical body style with the others, but was more luxuriously outfitted on the inside. The fuel injected engine was essentially the same as that of the previous 220SE model, but developed 120 horsepower instead of 115. As in the carbureted engine model, this one had disc brakes on the front fitted from April 1962 and the hydraulic dual braking system available from 1963 on. Production of the sedans got underway in August 1959, and in September 1960 a newly styled coupe became available, but it was not produced until February 1961. The convertible appeared in September 1961. Disc brakes were fitted for the latter ones from the beginning and the same time the dual braking system was available in all

three. The body styles of the convertible and coupe were more modern, rear fins were eliminated and the edge slightly rounded and the cars were much more luxuriously equipped. Real leather upholstery was standard as well as a tachometer, were standard equipment of these truly elegant automobiles. Re-finished in a beautiful Alpine white, the newer professional quality paint job still shows extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. The restored (in 2002) front and rear bumpers have an excellent fit and finish that show well with only minor imperfections on the right side of the front bumper. All trim pieces are present and have a brilliant finish with no dents. The weather stripping is still very pliable with little or no drying, tearing or shrinkage. The highly desirable European spec headlights and taillights are in very good condition with no hazing or cracks. Paint and body are exceptional with no visible evidence of repair or damage that we could find. Inside, the gorgeous rich red leather seats all look great with no major signs of wear visible. Carpet also shows well and is in good condition throughout. Overall the genuine wood trim looks great and compliments the crack-free red leather dash. The headliner mirrors the rest of the cabin and completes the theme as do the door panels which show well. The original steering wheel is in very good condition and leather wrapped, power locks, fuel gauge and Pioneer AM/FM radio are inoperable. This nicely represented Mercedes is equipped with a $11,000 overhauled (at 59,500 miles) 2.2L SOHC castiron block m127 inline 6 cylinder engine, 4-speed manual transmission with a overhauled clutch (at 48,958 miles), power steering, power brakes (overhauled at 61,519 miles), air conditioning, front disc brakes, 14 inch original equipment steel wheels with Alpine white matching full Mercedes hub caps. Included with this wonderful car is a extensive historical collection of $34,000 in service records/receipts, $20,000 in restoration records/receipts, parts catalogs, schematics, technical articles and a complete set of original manuals. Rarely will you get the opportunity to own a Euro white on red, 4 speed Mercedes with this amount of documented service history. Ideal for an everyday driver or weekend get-a-ways, this 220SEb is the way it’s suppose to be…luxurious exterior with the heartbeat of German motorsports…MEIN GOTT!, GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
