Make sure you “Like Us”


Watching the snow fall here at the office in mid-February hoping that this is the last shot of winter. However, St. Louis is a town that winter can still grab us in late March or early April. Everyone always says, “If you don’t like the weather here wait a day and it will change.” That is so true. Last weekend we had mid 60”s and a great weekend to ride. This weekend we froze our butts off and got snow?????? I’m just patiently waiting for that 70 plus and sunny weather.

I hope everyone will take a look at the “Save Shady Jack’s” ad on page 15 of this month’s magazine. I have to believe that all of us would rather see Shady Jack’s stand and the new Stadium built elsewhere or at least leave Shady’s alone. I don’t quite understand the need for a new stadium but that’s well beyond what I am interested in. They can’t even fill up the old stadium can they? Well, that’s enough of my commentary about that but, let’s all pull together and get down to Shady Jack’s and sign the petition to save the most famous Biker Bar in St Louis. Shady’s is a great place for events, plus an AWESOME place to just visit on any given day for a great meal, drinks and a terrific atmosphere to just be yourself. Jack, Ann and all the staff at there are first class all the way and deserve all of us to help stop the destruction of this St Louis Landmark. I urge you to take the time to stop by the bar and get on that petition. Don’t let the city of St Louis tell us who can stay and who has to go. I’m for Shady Jack’s staying, how about you? Riding season is just about on us. Watch our website, our Facebook and the current issue of Full Throttle Magazine to keep up with all the great events and rides happening each month. I look forward to seeing you all of you at the many events and rides we will be at. Watch for more info soon about the 7th Annual GGG and Full Throttle Magazine is happy to announce we will be a Sponsor for Bikefest at Lake of the Ozarks this year on Sept 17-20. We will be announcing some exciting news about both events in March. Ride safe and see you on the road with Full Throttle Magazine. Bob

2015 MISSOURI MOTORCYCL The Missouri General Assembly is at it again for 2015 with how bills are being presented by the state’s Congressional leaders regarding motorcycle helmet legislation. Granted this is only the beginning process and have not reached the Governor yet for final approval of signing into law; this is a heads-up of what we’re facing to be passed. The following house bills (HB) and senate bills (SB) are to repeal or amend SECTION 302.020 by adding or changing the verbiage to subsection 2; that currently reads as follows. 2. Every person operating or riding as a passenger on any motorcycle or motortricycle, as defined in section 301.010, upon any highway of this state shall wear protective headgear at all times the vehicle is in motion. The protective headgear shall meet reasonable standards and specifications established by the director. *** ALSO NOTE *** Section 302.020.1 Beginning January 1, 2017--Operation of motor vehicle without proper license prohibited, penalty--motorcycles--special license--protective headgear, failure to wear, fine, amount--no points to be assessed.

Any qualified motorcycle operator may operate a motorcycle or motortricycle upon any Missouri highway without wearing protective headgear fastened upon his or her head if such qualified motorcycle operator:

-------------------Senate Bill 135 Allows qualified motorcycle operators to operate motorcycles and motortricycles without protective headgear under certain conditions. Status: Introduced on January 7 2015 - 25% progression Action: 2015-01-22 - Second Read and Referred S Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee.

-------------------Senate Bill 296 Exempts users of enclosed three wheel vehicles that contain manufacturer-installed seat belts with shoulder restraints from the requirement to wear helmets. Status: Introduced on January 22 2015 - 25% progression Action: 2015-02-12 - Second Read and Referred S Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee.

(AMEND CH. 302, RSMo BY ADDING A NEW SECTION 302.026) A brief summary because it is pretty wordy: “Qualified Motorcycle Operator” means a person twenty-one years of age or older who has possessed a motorcycle license or a motorcycle endorsement on his or her driver’s license for at least two years or of this age who has not possessed either for minimum of two years, but has successfully completed a motorcycle rider training course approved pursuant to sections 302.133 to 302.137.

REPEAL CH. 302, RSMo BY ADDING --“The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to such a person or passenger on any three wheeled vehicle that is fully enclosed and contains manufacturer-installed seat belts with shoulder restraints.”

Page 12 www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com

In addition to maintaining proof of financial responsibility in accordance with chapter 303, has first-party insurance coverage of a health insurance policy, a personal injury protection insurance policy or rider, or other form of insurance providing first-party medical benefits in the minimum amount of fifty thousand dollars for injuries incurred as a result of an accident while operating a motorcycle or motortricycle. Licenses with distinctive plates will be issued by the DOR by paying a fifteen dollar fee in addition to regular registration fees, license plates bearing letters or numbers or a combination thereof as determined by the director, with the words “HELMET FREE” in place of the words “SHOW-ME STATE”. Also, law enforcement officers will not be able to arrest or issue a citation to an operator as long as they are displaying these special issued license plates.

-----------------Senate Bill 344 Modifies regulation of auto cycle operators and exempts such operators from using protective headgear.

LE HEADGEAR LEGISLATION Status: Introduced on January 28 2015 - 25% progression Action: 2015-01-28 - S First Read--SB 344-Wasson (AMEND CH. 304 RSMo by adding one new section 304.005) 1. As used in this section, the term “autocycle” means a three-wheeled motorcycle on which the drivers and passengers ride in a completely enclosed, tandem seating area that is equipped with airbag protection, a roll cage, safety belts for each occupant, and antilock brakes and that is designed to be controlled with a steering wheel and pedals. 2. Notwithstanding subsection 2 of section 302.020, a person operating or riding in an autocycle shall not be required to wear protective headgear if the vehicle is equipped with a roof that meets or exceeds the standards established for protective headgear. 3. No person shall operate an autocycle on any highway or street in this state unless the person has a valid driver’s license. The operator of an autocycle, however, shall not be required to obtain a motorcycle or motortricycle license or endorsement under sections302.010 to 302.340.

The Responsibility of Firearms Ownership

The responsibility of firearms ownership is an awesome one to have, and when you get your concealed carry weapons permit it is even more so; you have the ability to take another person’s life. As a concealed carry weapon (CCW) permit holder your actions are amplified in everyone eyes, especially when you screw up. Anti-gunners love nothing more than to twist a tragedy into something to further their agenda. My biggest recommendation is to get training from competent instructors with some sort of background in law and has an understanding of the laws in Missouri and other states you travel. Develop an after the shooting plan now and train more than the 8 hours required by law. For those of you that have taken classes with us, you understand under the Revised Missouri Statues (RSMo), you have rights that individuals in most states can only dream of such as: owning NFA (National Firearm Act) items, such as suppressors, automatics and short barrel rifles or shotguns, open carry, carrying in your vehicle without a permit, magazines with no restriction on capacity, the use of expanding ammunition (hollow points), no restrictions on the use of electrical weapons (tasers and stun guns) or chemical sprays (maces and pepper spray.). It’s no joke when I say we are freer than Texas which is considered by most to be the most Pro Second Amendment. Another part of our classes involves the practical application of Missouri Laws to a specific situation in which deadly force maybe used; the proverbial check list we make in class and then apply while using our firearms training simulator which allows us to shoot the bad guy(s) or pepper spray them for instant justice (see our website for a demo video). The check list, simply watered down - Is there an immediate danger to your health or life (IDHL), or as the state statues put it, threat of serious bodily injury or death? Is that person committing a forcible felony or doing something with a weapon?

ecutor literally have forever to look at your case and decided if they want to prosecute since murder has no statute of limitations. You need to have a plan for after the shooting. Step one: LAWYER UP IMMEDIATELY and anytime the police ask you a question tell them you will NOT answer ANY questions without your attorney present. Your attorney shouldn’t be the guy that did your divorce, fixed your speeding ticket, or helped you plan out your estate. You need someone who specializes in laws pertaining to self-defense. Step two: We always recommend going to the hospital whether you think you’re hurt or not. The reason being adrenaline masks pain, bruises take time to form, and your attorney isn’t sitting around waiting for you to call. After all, we don’t schedule shootings. Sitting in the waiting room of the Emergency Department (ED) until the staff is ready to evaluate you only benefits you for several reasons: adrenaline has subsided, bruises have formed, and your attorney is close to catching up with you. Realize your attorney is going to be your most trusted resource during this ordeal, but you didn’t schedule this self-defense shooting. As such your attorney could be in court, a meeting, maybe even taking a vacation. Going to the ED gives your attorney or their partner time to catch up with you. Training never ends. It’s your responsibility to go above and beyond the 8 hours of training mandated by the laws in Missouri. You need to be up-to-date on the latest laws and trends, possess certain shooting skills like offhand shooting, shooting at night, room clearing, engaging multiple attackers and many many other things that just can’t be squeezed into an 8 hour course with mandated requirements from the State of Missouri. We proudly offer remedial CCW training at a staggering 50% discount to bring you, the law-abiding permit holder, up to RECOMMENTDATIONS speed. We also FOR FUTURE TOPICS? offer several adGOT QUESTIONS ? vance classes EMAIL US AT that cover pracQuestions@SouthernArmory.com tical skills that will make you a better shooter.

Wild Bill’s 10th Annual Wild Game Cook-Off at ted’s motorcycle world

The great folks at Ted’s Motorcycle World were happy to see a dealership full of people who left winter hibernation to attend and help with a fantastic event. The parking lot was packed with cars and motorcycles. Ted’s large, friendly staff was on point and took great care of the increased dealership business. The 105 people who rode to the event each received a ticket from Wild Bill for 10 free samples from 11 wild game contestants. Many more decided not to brave the weather and caged it. There was more than enough food to feed a large crowd. However, by end of day, contestants were scraping the bottoms of their crock-pots.

Large samples of a wide variety of wild game dishes were provided consisting of frog legs, deer, crawfish, turtle, and rabbit. I sampled each one (loosened the belt a notch) and all of them were fantastic! The free cups of coffee, courtesy ofTed’s, hit the spot also aftera cool ride to the event. Many awards were earned to include: the top three “People’s Choice”, top three “Best Tasting”, and top three “Best Display”. Each winner was awarded a plaque and prize money. The 1st place winners were awarded $200, 2nd place $100, and 3rd place $50. Tim Phillips (Rocker), President of Bluff City Motorcycle Club, received the 1st place “People’s Choice Award” for the second year in a row with his “Rocker Shredded Venison”. This is only his 3rd year to enter the contest. The wild game connoisseurs, staff, and contestants united and engaged in hours of light hearted, mid-winter conversation about general interest and swapped biker stories (factual events). I told the one about my drunken friend, a midget stripper and a swimming pool at Old Shawneetown Street Rally a couple of years ago. I also learned that this year’s Illinois State Harley Owners Group (HOG) Rally will be held in Alton on August 12-15. The Alton HOG Chapter will host this very large event. They are sponsored by Ted’s Motorcycle World. For more information go to altonhog.com or ilstatehogrally.com. Ted’s Motorcycle World hosted another fantastic event and all those in attendance had a great time! To find out more about events at Ted’s Motorcycle World, keep an eye on Full Throttle Magazine. Hope to see ya’ there next time.

“speakers” So you’ve decided that you want a louder stereo system, now what? There are many options available, but how do you decide what to do. Let’s start with speakers. Harley installs 5.25” speakers in its fairings. How about going to better quality speakers or even a bigger set? You can now purchase adapter rings that allow you to increase the speaker size to a 6.5” round speaker. This allows more power and better sound. This is all dependent upon the brand of speakers. Using a quality speaker like Focal, Hertz, Memphis Audio, or other bigger name brands will give you that loud, crisp sound. After you choose what speakers to buy, you’ll need to look at the head unit. There are many good options available when looking at replacing a head unit. Make sure you look at a marine grade unit; this will save you major headaches if it accidentally gets wet. There are systems, just like in your vehicle, that make adding an aftermarket stereo a simple plug and play option. When installing these kits, you still keep your handlebar controls active. Many of today’s head units are Bluetooth capable which allows you to connect your phone or IPod without utilizing wires. You will even be able to switch through songs with your current stock handlebar controls allowing you to put your music device in your pocket or saddlebag.

Again using the bigger name brands will give you better quality. This can even allow you to add rear speakers into your saddlebags or speaker pods on your tour pack. These systems can be a simple plug and play, but you want to make sure that you run the power to these amps straight from the battery. This will give you uninterrupted power to the unit. Did you say you wanted to add more speakers? There are numerous companies that make saddlebag lids that allow you to mount different size speakers into. Some can be flush mount, and some mount on top. Most of these will fit directly onto your current saddlebags. These can be installed with a quick connect plug to allow for removal of the bags when needed. What about a bike with no fairing? There are systems that can be added to these bikes as well. If you have a bike with hard saddlebags, you can install a set of these saddlebag lids and run your phone or IPod directly to the amp. These same speakers can be installed in the Roadking Classic bags with the use of a bezel. If you’re looking for front speakers, they make small speakers that can be mounted to the handlebars or even engine guards. These can be utilized the same as the rear with a small amp and directly plugging your phone or IPod into the amp.

There are many choices in brands and quality. Just remember that these speakers and head So we’ve upgraded the head unit and speak- units can be subjected to the weather, so utilize ers, but it’s still not enough? What about installmarine grade equipment. Don’t be fooled into ing an amp? Amps have come a long way for the some of these small package deals. The quality is motorcycle industry. These are now made small not as good as putting a system together. Just do enough to install inside the fairing. They still have your homework before you make a purchase. lots of power, just made a little more compact.

CRACK UP’S BUSINESS TRIP TURNED AWKWARD When Mr. Jones and his lovely assistant were traveling on business, they checked into a hotel that was overbooked and were told they’d have to share a room for one night. After the initial awkwardness, they tucked into separate beds. “Mr. Jones,” the assistant called out in the dark, “I’m chilly. Would you mind getting me a blanket?” “I have a better idea,” Mr. Jones replied. “Why don’t we pretend we’re married, just for tonight?” “I’d like that,” said the assistant. “Good,” said Mr. Jones. “Then get your own blanket.” THE PERFECT HUSBAND Several men were in the locker room of the gym when a cell phone on a bench rang and a man put it on speaker and began to talk. Everyone else in the room stopped to listen. MAN: “Hello!” WOMAN: “Hi Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?” MAN: “Yes.” WOMAN: “I’m at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It’s only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?” MAN: “Sure, go ahead if you like it that much.” WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked.” MAN: “How much?” WOMAN: “$90,000.” MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.” WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing. I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They’re asking $980,000 for it.

MAN: “Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They’ll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it’s what you really want.” WOMAN: “OK. I’ll see you later! I love you so much!” MAN: “Bye, I love you, too.” The man hung up. The other men in the locker room were staring at him with astonishment; mouths wide open. He turned and asked. “Anyone know knows whose phone this is?” NEVER PISS OFF A COP Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, “Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?” He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started Writing another ticket for having worn tires. So my wife called him a ****-head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him,

the more tickets he wrote. Personally, we didn’t care. We came into town by bus. www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com Page 41

MACH 1, the name alone almost says it all -- Street Screeching Performance!!! The Mustang we all know and love is quite a car and the only one that I can remember of all the Muscle Cars that has not had a stop in production since it was introduced in 1964. Even the Corvette took a break to move its plant from Missouri. Although I must say 1974-1978 Ford came out with the Mustang II in which I really can’t call those a Mustang, but some of you may.

So now that you know a little about the Mach 1 in general, let’s learn a little about this fine example that is owned by Robbie, Lisa & Josh Walker from Greenville, Illinois.

The Mach 1 was brought to life in 1969 along with the other models: GT, Boss 302, Boss 429, Shelby GT350, and the Shelby GT500. The Mach 1 gave the boot to the GT the very 1st year. The GT sold 5,396 units - versus the 72,458 sales for the Mach 1. The Mach 1 was only available with the Sports- before roof body style which is known to most of us as a Fastback. So no coupe or convertible was ever made, if you see one check the VIN; it’s not real. This car came out with some performance enhancing items like the Matte Black hood, hood pins, hood scoop (in which some were lucky

Robbie bought this one in Missouri back in 1985. It was blue at the time and it needed a LOT of work. He let it just sit around for about 25 years was time to start the restoration. The 1st thing Robbie did was the new floor pans and sand blasted the whole car before taking it to a local shop, Creative Image. It was there that the body work and paint work were done, but the bad news is that the company closed. You hear so many stories like this one when the work stopped, yet it still needed a lot of work to be finished. When it came time to do the engine

CER - MACH 5 there was no question as to who was going to handle that part. The motor went straight to Lumpy at M o t o r s p o r t s Performance also in Greenville,Illinois. It is a 351cu.in. Cleveland bored 30 over with 9:5 compression, roller cam, custom heads, Mallory ignition, 7 quart Canton oil pan, 750 Quick Fuel carb and Hooker headers. For the power to get to the tires it has a C6 with a 3000 stall convertor and a 9” rear end with 3:70 gears with posi-traction. I met Robbie a few years back through a mutual friend; we’ll just call him McDave to keep it simple. Since Robbie details all of McDave’s show cars, and builds race cars bodies, a lot of the work on his Mach 1 was not to his liking. As a matter of fact, he let his car set for quite a few years again because he didn’t want to drive it the way it turned out. He called me at my shop “Showcar Specialist” one day and asked if I could help him out.

don’t like saying bad things about other shops, but since the shop that did the work on the car is closed I guess it is OK to say I’m glad Robbie never drove it. He could have gotten hurt really easy. After making the car safe and for the pieces to fit better, it was time to address the paint. I hand sanded the complete car and I also HAND BUFFED the entire car too. In most cases I won’t buff anyone else’s paint work but I wanted to save Robbie the expense of another complete paint job. I think it turned out great. I also custom fit the Magna Flo stainless exhaust system to give Robbie his Mach 1 that he is now very proud to own, drive, and to show as often as he can. Speaking of shows, I hope he has a trophy room for all of the big trophies he is bringing home. Robbie would also like to thank the guys at Z-1 Automotive for their help.

Naturally I said bring it over, and Make sure you come back next month after some time Robbie was convinced to have me to see the finished car in all of its glory. re-do, improve and over all just finish the car. I

Identify Hazards The first part of reducing the number of motorcycle related accidents and fatalities is to identify the hazards. Why is it so hard for motorcyclists to identify the hazards of riding these days? Because there are a lot of organizations and factions in the motorcycling industry muddying up the water. They each spread rumors (smoke and mirrors) in an attempt to advance their own agenda or place the blame of motorcycle related accidents on something or someone else.

Statistics? Mark Twain said, “There are lies, damn lies, and statistics”. The only way to find hazards which are killing our motorcyclists is to hear it straight from the “horse’s mouth”. Therefore, I contacted the St Louis County and St Clair County Medical Examiner’s Offices. Their numbers verified that Riding without a helmet or a DOT certified helmet, speeding and under the influence of alcohol are the leading causative factors for motorcycle related fatalities in the St Louis Metro area. Another contributing factor was unlicensed riders. So, why is the “SEE Motorcycles” campaign (more smoke and mirrors) so popular among motorcyclists when other vehicles are not the problem? We all hear about it (like the shot that was heard around the world) when a car is to blame for an accident. However, a crash, narrow escape, or death caused by the motorcyclists goes unmentioned. I find it ironic when motorcyclists organize a poker run benefit for a deceased rider’s family with a route that takes them from bar to bar, when the original cause of death was riding under the influence of alcohol. It is this author’s opinion that the “SEE Motorcycles” campaign is popular among motorcyclists because it lays the blame on someone else. SEE MOTORCYCLES? The campaign slogan is wrong. It should say, “See motorcycle riders drink and speed without wearing a DOT approved helmet while unlicensed”. Assess Hazards / Determine Risks Most motorcyclists start-off wearing helmets and staying away from alcohol when riding. They intend on enrolling in Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course and eventually applying for their motorcycle endorsement once they feel comfortable on the bike. The rider begins to hear rumors of helmet ineffective-

ness repeatedly from fellow riders and motorcyclists rights organizations. They watch other riders drink alcohol and ride without DOT approved helmets. The new riders start drinking one or two alcoholic beverages during rides. After a while, they are drinking as much as the other riders and riding without a helmet or nothing more than a turtle shell on his/her head. The pace of motorcycle rides becomes faster as the day goes by to hurry to the next bar. Motorcycle riders are rarely pulled over by police so what is the hurry with a motorcycle license endorsement. As time goes by it becomes less of an issue until one day when they find themselves pulling up to a checkpoint. As much as this high-risk behavior seems normal to motorcyclists, the risk associated with it remains. Riding without a DOT approved helmet, under the influence of alcohol, at a fast pace, without a MSF course or motorcycle license endorsement is high risk and riddled with red flags. Develop and Implement Controls / Make Risk Decisions The best control for the risks identified is to take a MSF course or state rider’s test and purchase a motorcycle license endorsement. Purchase and wear a DOT approved helmet 100% of the time and abstain from drinking alcohol until the ride is over. It is easy to miss-out on fantastic scenery if we are in a hurry to get to the next place that serves alcoholic beverages. Slow down and enjoy the ride. Re-Evaluate Control Measures It is very easy to fall victim to pressure from other riders. As a rider, we sometimes feel the “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” syndrome. If a rider finds that he/she strayed from their control measures, re-evaluate and re-implement the original risk mitigation decisions and stay with it. Leading by example is never easy. Perhaps others will see risk management as a better way and it will become the new Rome. It is hard to determine risk control measures when the hazards of riding are cloaked in a veil of smoke and mirrors by those who would have us believe the BS they feed us. We discussed a few of the major risks associated with riding. However, risk management is not limited to the risks discussed in this article. Do not be fooled by what others are saying. Use common sense and research from reliable sources to make informed risk management decisions and enjoy years of healthy riding.
