Well it appears riding season has finally gotten here and we can all get out and ride. Cabin fever has certainly set in on most of us and we are all anxious to get involved in the many great events and rides going on this year. We had a great turnout and a great day to ride on Saturday April 12th for the 2nd Annual Bar Owners Poker Run. I want to the thank all the riders for being there and helping us raise some cash for Hartbauer McBride and Bikers Against Child Abuse. Two great causes and two great groups of dedicated people. Also, the five bars involved Jefferson Ave Bistro, Handlebars Pacific and Florissant, Wente’s Food Shack and the world Famous Halfway Haus, all did an outstanding job handling the crowds. Thanks to all of them for helping make this event a success. A special thanks to Joe, Dan and Theresa from Halfway Haus for helping sponsor and put this event together. It’s always a good time when those three are involved. I am in full swing putting our 6th Annual Grease, Gears and Grooves event together. I know I have told you, but it will be on Saturday July 19, at Sunset Fords Lot and will run from 10am to 6pm. If you have participated in the past as a car or bike show entry, we hope you will do so again. All the vendors from the past years are welcome again this year to show your products and be in front of what will surely be the best crowd ever at GGG. The booth space for vendors is starting to fill up so please call me or email me to reserve your vendor space because that space is limited and filling quickly. If you plan on entering your car or bike in the show please call me or email to reserve your spot because that space will all be gone and we don’t want you to miss out. We are raising money this year for some great causes and look forward to seeing all of you there. We will have a number of new things going on this year that will make it a great day for the whole family. We are still looking for a couple of more Sponsors for the event. So if you want to get your companies name out there give me a call or email me. 636-5363893 or Full Throttle and Halfway Haus will be putting on a bikini/Miss Full Throttle Contest on Saturday June 14 starting at 7pm at the Halfway Haus at 7900 Michigan Ave, This will be a fun event and the winner can walk away that night with cash in hand and a photo shoot in the next issue of Full Throttle Magazine. So ladies please email me at to register. So everyone mark your calendars for June 14 and let’s make a fun night of it at the Halfway Haus. Thanks to everyone for reading and supporting Full Throttle Magazine. We know our success is based on you the readers and advertisers. We appreciate all you do for us and we want to continue to give back to our community and hold our place as “The Magazine of Choice by Readers and Advertisers”.

Sorry Boys, No Men Allowed!


Finally, spring has sprung! AMEN! The grass is becoming green and the trees are in bloom. What does that mean for you? I say, “Ladies, let’s ride!” But first, let’s chat. Last month I shot out a subject about what you should NEVER say to a female biker. This is a topic that I found rather interesting and somewhat comical. Some of my fellow lady riders emailed me quite a few different scenarios they were involved in or have witnessed. As I began to read these stories, I was amazed. One lady wrote and said someone asked her if she was going through a mid-life crisis. Her response to that was, “No, that’s what the boyfriend is for.” Another woman was told she didn’t have any business owning her own bike and she should be on the back of the bike. “REALLY, COME ON”! Here’s one... “I’ll let you take me for a ride.” Yeah, I bet you would. Or comments like, “you ride pretty well for a girl.” Yeah, and you follow directions okay for a guy! Aside from some of the comments that we may get for riding our own motorcycles, I think we can all agree that we belong to a pretty amazing club. Okay, on to this month’s topic. I think we should discuss our motorcycles. What have you done to customize your bike? We all enjoy dressing up our bikes with all the bells and whistles. Harley Davidson has even jumped on the band wagon. For those of you, who is like me, love the BLING. They have an accessory line called Di

Page 8

amond Ice. I think I have just about everything in that line on my bike. It is so much more than that. It’s the chrome, the custom wheels, the custom paint jobs, everything. My Fatboy Trike was completely tricked out. From the custom paint to the baby moon rear wheels, it had it all. I even had my helmet painted to match my bike. My Harley Triglide is on its way to be a pretty awesome looking bike. I’ve added a lot of chrome accessories. I chromed the front end. There is Kuryakan foot boards, shift pegs, brake pads, grips, and a little added accessories on my mid frame air deflector. As I mentioned before, it has all the Diamond Ice accessories. I am a girly girl. Ladies, email me what you’ve done to your bike and throw in a couple of pictures for good measures. I look forward to seeing what y’all have done to your bikes. LADIES, LET’S CHAT!

“Chuck’s Boots, C

hucks Boots was established in 1982, when Mr. Chuck Day opened the first location in Kansas City, MO. Within five years, Chuck had opened 2 more locations, one in North Kansas City and another in Columbia, Missouri. Finally in 1991, Chucks Boots came to Fenton, Missouri and followed two years later with a store in St Charles, Missouri. In 1998, Chuck Day sold his Fenton store to Randy Markel with the understanding that Chuck would close his St Charles location. From the original 5,500 square feet, Chucks has now grown to 25,000 square feet with over 40,000 pairs of boots all under one roof. In 2008 Markel opened a second location in St Peters, Mo and after their recent expansion, the store now boasts 22,000 square feet with 30,000 pairs of boots in stock. According to most boot company executives, Chucks Boots are now considered the two largest pure boot stores in the world. No where will you find a larger collection of boots under two roofs. Western boots have been around for well over a century. At Chucks, you will find all the best name brands, including Tony Lama, Justin, Ariat, Dan Post, Lucchese, Corall and Old Gringo. If it’s exotic you prefer, Chucks has all the skins: alligator, ostrich, lizard, snake, eel and sting ray. Not to mention, Chucks has every kind of kid’s boots available for the little guys. Besides western, the other driving force behind Chucks Boots is work boots and clothing. Whether its steel toed boots or soft toed boots, Chucks has thousands of pairs to choose from. Once again, Chucks has all the best known brands, including Carolina, Wolverine, Timberland, Thorogood, Georgia, Rocky, Dr. Martens, Danner, Chippewa and Cat. And remember, nothing says work clothes like Carhartt. And when you need them, Chucks has everyday low prices. And of course let’s not forget the “Biker” category! Chucks caters to just about everything biker except the bike itself. There are

never leave your feet!” boot brands such as Harley Davidson, Bates and Milwaukee. You will find a vast selection of leathers, chaps, jackets, vests, gloves, rain gear and head wraps. Chucks offers both DOT and novelty helmets, belts and bags. In the future Chucks will be bringing in gears for the street bike rider such as full leather suits, full face

helmets, armored gear and lots more. Let’s talk about the woman who wants to look good. Chucks has the largest selection of fashion jeans is St Louis. You will find the lowest prices on jeans such as Miss Me, Rock Rival, Silver, Rock & Roll Cowgirl and Wrangler. And we can’t forget the belts, buckles, purses hats and jewelry. Chucks Boots also offers an Account Program for businesses that require their employees to wear work boots. Whether a company has a few employees or several hundred, Chucks will work with the employees to give them the proper fit and bill the company for the boots. Just ask a Chucks Boots manager for the details. So whether you’re a Cowboy, a Laborer, a Bike, a Hiker, a Uniformed Officer or a Business Professional, Chucks can fill all your footwear needs and lots more. With 2 great locations, the Fenton store in Chucks Plaza on Hwy 30 just 4 miles west of Hwy 270. Or the St Peters store at 5859 Suemandy Drive, one block from Mid Rivers Mall. Remember, Chucks Boots never leave your feet!

BIKERS AGAINST CHILD ABUSE® B.A.C.A.® When you see these letters and words, what does it mean to you? Would you think this is another organization that just raises money to help abused children? Or would you think that they are the type of “Organization” that will go and “teach a good lesson” to the perpetrator that abuse that child? I’m here to let you know that neither one of these scenario’s is accurate. Bikers Against Child Abuse is an organization that is all about the child and nothing else. They are not a fund raising organization. They rely on donations to aid in their mission, and others to do fundraising for them. Their children are their number one priority, and they do not want to do anything that will take the focus off of the children. It was about a month ago, I sat down to work on the magazine and I pulled up the Internet and saw on Yahoo’s homepage a video story about how a group of bikers saved a child’s life. Well, being a biker and owning a biker magazine, I was intrigued. I clicked on the video and as I watched, I was literally brought to tears. I had tears of sorrow for that child who endured such horrible acts of abuse. I had tears of happiness seeing how a group of guardian angels came down and lifted up that child; protecting her from the bad guys; showing her that she did not have to be afraid anymore; letting her feed on their strength. There was a flood of emotions running through me. I, like many out there, probably had the same perception about Bikers Against Child Abuse, but watching that video completely changed my thoughts about them. So, I started to do some digging. I wanted to know what this organization was all about. I found their website I clicked on their “mission” tab. As I began to read, I was blown away. This was an unbelievable group of people; so selfless, so heartfelt and so strong. Their mission statement was clear.

Bikers Against Child Abuse® (B.A.C.A.) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner; however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle. Like I mentioned before, B.A.C.A.’s first priority is the children. There are several steps that they must take to ensure that the child feels safe. They have a central point of contact for those who need to reach out to Bikers Against Child Abuse; such as a referring agency or an individual. The referring agency is someone who has had direct contact with the child and determines that the child is still frightened and may need additional help. There is a child liaison that is referred to by the central point of contact. The liaison is the one who determines if the case is legitimate. That allows the child liaison to make sure that the proper authorities have been contacted and the case fits their mission statement. After the Child Liaison has made their initial contact, the first ride is organized. This gives the entire chapter the opportunity to meet the child in a comfortable location such as their home or where ever is best for the child. The child is then given a vest with a special B.A.C.A. patch sewn on the back and their road name on the front, along with a few small comfort items. The intention of this is to let him or her know that they are a part of big family and they can feel safe and protected. After the chapter has met the child, he/she is given the names and contact information of two members that reside closest to them. These two members are the primary contact people for that child. In order to become a primary contact person you must have had an extensive NCIC back ground check performed, have been riding with the organization for at least a year and have been given specific instructions from a licensed mental health professional.

If a child feels frightened, being harassed, or threatened by the perpetrator at any time, they can call their primary contact, and B.A.C.A. will rally around him or her day and night. They will take shifts standing guard outside of their home. They will escort them to and from school if necessary. Anywhere, at any time, the child needs them, B.A.C.A. will be there. From beginning to the end; supporting them through the court process and attending their interviews. These selfless individuals give everything they have to these children. Their main focus is to “Empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live.” They will continue to be a strong presence in these children’s life until they feel safe. The one thing that still amazes me is the fact that the members of this amazing organization do have lives of their own; Work, Family, Obligations. All of that is put on hold when a child is in need. They look beyond their own personal needs. How many of you can say you can do that? It takes such a unique individual to do what they do. After my research of B.A.C.A., I reached out to our local chapter indicating who I was and what I would like to do. I got a response back within about an hour. Scandal, the President of this chapter, told me that he was honored and thrilled that I contacted him. I told him that I saw the video on yahoo and how much the whole story moved me. I wanted to help. I wanted to do something, anything! I set up a time for Bob and me to meet Scandal. He came to our office on his motorcycle. All dressed in his biker gear. Leather chaps, jacket and worn on the outside was a leather vest adorned with all his B.A.C.A. patch work. Scandal is a rough exterior of a man. Long white hair pulled back into a low ponytail; clearly someone that can be intimidating at first glance. As we began to talk about his work with this organization, I watched as this rough exterior of a man began to melt away and an angel emerged. His eye glistened as he talked about the children he helped. The passion in his voice, the dedication, and the devotion he has toward all these wounded children. He shared with us some of his personal stories. We sat and listened as Scandal spoke about how these children became so powerful; to stand up to their perpetrators; to stand up and fight. My heart hurts for these children. But, hearing how empowered they become, gives me a sense of strength. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO! THIS IS HOW THIS ORGANIZATION AFFECTS THESE CHILDREN; SHOWS THEM THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE. THEY ARE STRONG AND THEY CAN STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES. THEY ARE “EMPOWERED.” I’m going to quote their CREED written by their founder “Chief.” “I am a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse. The die has been cast. The decision has been made. I have stepped over the line. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past has prepared me, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by the faith in my works, and lean on the strength of my brothers and sisters. I love with patience, live by prayer, and labor with power. My fate is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is the ultimate safety of children. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are tried and true, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children. I must go until I drop, ride until I give out, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me, for He will see my B.A.C.A. back patch and know that I am one of His. I am a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse, and this is my creed.” WOW! WOW! WOW! What powerful words!

Who Is Lawless Harley Davidson?


hen I heard there was a new Harley Davidson Dealership in Missouri, I became very curious. Being a motorcycle enthusiast and feeling the need to take a road trip, I took a quick ride down Hwy 55 to Scott City, Missouri to get some answers about the “New Lawless Harley Davidson”. When I pulled up to the dealership, I recognized a familiar spot. This dealership used to be Bootheel Harley. I walked in and was quickly greeted by Michelle Long, the Marketing Manager for Lawless Harley. I was also met by one of the owners and General Manager Brian Brockel along with his wife Jan. After only a few minutes, I realized these three friendly faces are true Harley Davidson people. They extended their morning to help me understand the new and exciting changes the future holds for Lawless Harley. I was curious about Brian and Jan and where they came from and what made them become co-owners of a Harley Davidson dealership. Brian told me he has been a motorcycle rider and enthusiast most of his life. He was a custom choppers kind of guy. Then one day a friend told them to buy a Harley. “It will change your life,” he said. Brian decided to buy Jan a Harley Deluxe. He and Jan rode together on that Harley and quickly realized his friend was right. Riding a Harley was not just bonding with other Harley riders, but a complete lifestyle they had not experienced until they became part of the Harley Family. Brian and Jan lived in South Dakota and began to make the Sturgis trip each year. During the course of those trips they met Jeff Cheek. Jeff was originally from Springfield, Missouri but currently resides in Florida and runs the Rossmeyer Harley group in Florida. Brian, Jan and Jeff became close friends as they meet each year at Sturgis. Jeff voiced an interest in becoming an owner again of A Harley Dealership. That’s when plans developed to team up and seek out Harley dealerships to acquire. With the help of two additional partners in New York the group purchased the Scott City, Missouri dealership and a dealership in Seattle, Washington. In January 2014, Lawless Harley Davidson was born.

Page 30

And Where Did They Come From? Although Lawless Harley was originally named Miners Harley Davidson and is a 23 year old dealership, many new things are happening at the New Lawless Harley. Lawless Harley has already improved the number of pre-owned motorcycle they have in stock. They boast a great selection of New Harleys as well. One thing that Lawless Harley is proud to say is, “you will never pay over MSRP for any Harley.” If you need a bike, make sure to check with Lawless because their selection is fantastic and their inventory is increasing and changing daily.

elcome back Full Throttle readers and riders! Glad to see you have opened up yet another great issue. I hope all of you have had a chance to enjoy some of the amazing riding weather we have been having recently and on the other hand I also know you have all been cursing the forecast as well. It is the roller coaster ride that folks here in St Louis call spring! A place where it’s 34 degrees in the morning and 78 degrees at 3pm with a chance of rain, snow, sleet, hail, tornados, the end of the world and all hell might just break loose. You never know what you may experience while riding this time of year. With that being said, there is one piece of equipment that you can install on your bike to “shield” yourself from the hazards of both the weather and the road. That’s right, you guessed it…a windshield! There will forever be two frames of thought on this, to shield, or not to shield? That is the question! The hardcore road riders insist it is a necessity to their arsenal of tools for the road. Then there are folks like myself, even with working 40 plus hours a week, I still managed to put 10,000 miles on my bike last year and the only windshield I have ever used is the one I look through on my Jeep. So I will be writing this article from two points of view; one view in regards to being a salesman and meeting my customer’s expectations, as well as educating them as a consumer. The other side, well we will get to that later. A windshield can be a great application this time of year and really any time of year depending on your tolerance of the cold. Keeping the wind off you makes all the difference in the world by reducing the wind chill factor. It can not only protect you front the elements but also all that fun road debris we enjoy dodging such as rocks, blown tires, etc. Installing a windshield dramatically reduces pressures applied to the body while riding. I mean if you really think about it, in most cases we are taking hurricane force winds as we ride along. Not to mention the human body is about as aero dynamic as a brick. I can admit that when I do ride a bike with a windshield or a fairing versus riding my own Springer, I can tell the difference. I am more refreshed and less fatigued. So yes, they do the job that they are intended to do, but most will agree with me that, while they get the job done, they don’t always look the best. Page 36

Article By Marshall Tucker While working at St Charles Harley-Davidson I have learned that there are two worlds when it comes to customizing bikes. Form and function. In some rare cases, like the Harley Wind Splitters or the Klokwerks Flare Windshield, both of which have some very sexy lines but they also perform really well for most people. Notice I said most, the bottom line is if you look on that nifty little thing that never lies called the “Internet” for what windshield you “should” have, you will get many theories. My school of thought is you should be looking over the windshield, not through it. You don’t want to look like a prairie dog rolling down the road all day popping up and down trying to avoid the top of the windshield that is right in your line of sight. I tried to watch a couple of YouTube videos on how to properly measure a windshield that involved math and stuff, but just like in high school I got bored quickly and resorted to blowing spit wads at my cat and dogs. So I always ask my customers, “What is comfortable for you?” We are all different shapes and sizes and have different riding styles. For instance, I tend to slouch when I ride, some folks tend to sit further back in the saddle than others, and some riders ride straight up and have their arms out directly in front of them. The fact is we are all differing in our needs for a windshield. Here at St Charles Harley-Davidson we have a wide selection of demo windshields for most touring models as well as proper measuring tools for other H-D models to make sure the fit is just right. The good news is that most options that are offered in our industry are designed to be detachable. Throw it on when you need it, stash it at home when you don’t, which brings me to the other side of the token. I have designed both my Harleys to be one off, custom, something you don’t see every day. I feel a windshield would completely ruin the look of both. I remember working in the industry in my early years when choppers where all the rage and guys would ask about a windshield for their chopper. It kind of defeats the purpose of the build doesn’t it? Didn’t we buy these roaring toys to get out of town with our knees in the breeze, our hair in the wind, bugs in our teeth? Didn’t we want that connection to the road? I know I do, and that is what is great about our industry, making sure everyone has the proper fitment and style to fit their needs. So whether you ride with or without a windshield, I’ll still ride with you!! Come on in and see me to get fitted for your own windshield today...or don’t. It’s your call! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the ride!! Page 37

very car has a story and history about it. This is a somewhat familiar one. If you are into Country music you have heard the song by David Ball called “Riding with Private Malone”.

That classic story portrayed in that song was one of a former American soldier who was just released from the service. Upon his freedom from duty he decided, on a whim, to buy a 1966 Corvette. After buying the car for a steal, he explored it features and found a note in the glove box from the car’s former owner, Private Malone, dated 1966 during the Vietnam War conflicts. The letter served as his last thoughts before he left his beloved car to go to war. His hopes were to share his thoughts with whoever inherited the vehicle if he did not return. As the story progressed, the American solder enjoyed this classic car and throughout his travels he swore he felt the presents of that soldier, Private Malone. One night after crashing the car in the rain, the soldier awakes with no memory of the event except being rescued by a strange soldier. My 1963 Corvette Roadster story is very similar to this one. My friend also spent time in the Vietnam War and when he returned he bought this vette for fun. My friend, Tommy Schrader had his fun but then he decided he wanted to make bring so life back to this classic car. He started removing all of the factory paint, but something went wrong one day after a Bar-B-Que. We’ll just say that there was an accident and the front end was wrecked. Tommy still had fun with the car until he also blew up the engine, so the car just sat for years. One evening I received a phone call from a friend who happened to be Tommy’s sister and she told me that Tommy had passed. We talked with a lot of collectors and Corvette owners to see if anyone would buy the car and restore it. All of them indicated it wasn’t worth anything but for scrap parts. I couldn’t let that happen because I wanted to keep Tommy and the vette alive. I knew it would be a long project since I am a Hot Rod builder “SHOWCAR SPECIALIST” and always building cars for others. But, I knew someday I would finish it and give it to my daughter Amie. It took me about 20 years to complete, but the timing worked out great. I was about to get married and I thought about a Vegas Wedding, but my soon to be wife, Linda, said “Why not a Chuck A Burger Wedding?” That is what we did. We had a Car Cruise and a Wedding broke out. All of our Bike and Hot Rod friends joined us in our wedding celebration and the unveiling of my pristine Corvette. In all of the years it took me to build this car, I had to make it one of a kind. With the help of my friend, Bill Clyne, I was able to make this

“The True Roadster” No Need for Wipers or Windows

vette what is it today. Here are some of the details. Front Bumpers are removed & holes eliminated. Custom “FLOATING GRILLE” Turn signal bar from a 1957 Chevrolet. Headlight Buckets removed & openings are eliminated. Turn signal housings & lenses are a mixture of ’63 Corvette & ’57 Bel air. Driving lights are added to the custom housing/lenses. Convertible top was eliminated to produce a TRUE ROADSTER. Door glass & vent windows were eliminated to add to the ROADSTER. Door tops were custom modified to eliminate the windows. Custom ONE OF A KIND filler panel behind the seats to form a Trunk. Exterior door handles were removed. Custom door panels made to fit with the new door shape. Upholstery is a multi color changing material. Flames are multi color changing Chromalusion. Body color is a special blend, “Miyon Orange” & a coat of “Pizzaz” added. Rear Bumpers are removed & holes eliminated. Rear roll pan customized to smooth body & to appear as a bumper. Rear tail light bezels were removed for a smoother look. Rear mono leaf spring was removed to add coil over shocks. With all of the body taken care of I also had to make it fun to drive and be able to go FULL THROTTLE at times after all that is why we build Hot Rods.

I had Clay Brown, with the use of his machine shop, trick out the 1969 350 cubic inch engine. We also added a “Comp Cams” 292-H cam. “Pete & Jakes” Gear drive system, 462 Camel Heads, “Offenhauser” Dual Quad Tunnel ram Intake and 2-“Holley” Carbs. To make sure you can get it to the next gear, I installed a “Hurst” Vertical Gate Shift linkage. These have a straight back and forth and a push and pull maneuverability. This is not your typical “H” pattern shifting. It’s designed to make shifting easier. The transmission is a close Ratio “Muncie” 4-speed connected to the Independent Rear End and Suspension. So, like I said in the beginning, every car has a story. This one is about a Solider who is still riding around town with the wind in his hair. He’s enjoying fun wedding with friends. And, knowing my daughter will have an awesome corvette to cruise around in. As long as I can let go of the keys. Page 47

CRACK UP’S Biker Bullies A Cheerful truck driver pulled up at a roadside cafe in the middle of the night for a dinner stop. Halfway through his meal, three wild- looking motorcyclists roared up--bearded, leather-jacketed, filthy. For no reason at all, the selected the truck driver as a target. One poured pepper over his head, another stole his apple pie, the third deliberately tipped his coffee over. The truck driver never said one word, just stood up, paid his check, and left. “That truck driver sure ain’t much of a fighter,” sneered one of the bikers. The girl behind the counter, peering out into the night, added, “He doesn’t seem to be much of a truck driver, either. He just ran his truck right over three motorcycles.”

either a cab or the police will be called immediately. The surprised biker looks at the bartender, and in hopeless anguish, cries “MAAAN! How many bars do you work at?!!?
