to an end. The rides are starting to be a bit cooler and the coats are definitely a must for most rides now. I’m sitting right now looking at the weather report for this week and it appears, in two days the weather man says it will be in the upper 70’s or low 80’s. So, without a doubt I can tell you I will be skipping the work scene on that Page 8: Chic Chat-Sue Fish day and getting a jacketless ride in for the day.

Sorry Boys, No Men Allowed!

Sue Fish

The further back you look through time, the more you realize how far we’ve come. That’s the lesson taught by the career of pioneering female motocross racer Sue Fish, the 1976 and 1977 Women’s National Motocross Champion. Fish’s career has inspired thousands of woman to race motocross and ride off-road. Today, not only do women participate in national-caliber series, but in many disciplines they compete head-to-head against male competitors. Fish helped break those boundaries for women racers. In addition to dominating the female ranks, Fish was one of the first women motocross racers to hold a professional racing license from the AMA and compete regularly against men. Known by the nickname, “The Flying Fish,” she raced in the AMA 125cc National Motocross Championship. Fish’s talents extended beyond motocross when she competed in the 1978 Subaru International Motorcycle Olympiad, a two-day event encompassing all types off off-road racing. Fish also competed on asphalt, racing in the men’s expert ranks in 600cc roadracing classes. Fish put her talents to work on the big screen as well, working as a Hollywood stuntwoman. Her credits include “Terminator” and “Footloose.” She also traveled as part of Evel Knievel’s stunt show in Australia. “I was just a young gal doing what I love to do: riding motorcycles,” Fish says. “Motocross is a sport that I love with every cell in my body, and I just feel incredibly honored to be recognized for the sport I so loved. Motorcycling was my way of life. It gave me a way of looking at things that taught me so many wonderful lessons about life.” Even though she inspired so many women racers to chase their dreams on the motocross track, Fish said that as a young woman racer she never viewed that as her purpose. “I don’t really consider myself a pioneer,” she says. “I was just riding motorcycles. I never had an agenda. Yes, there was a lot of press, but for me it was never about proving a point. I just loved riding. Ever since my father put me on the tank of his motorcycle when I was 3 years old, I’ve had to be on a motorcycle, and it was that love of riding that drove me.” Fish was born in November 1958. Her father, who competed in dirt track and hare scrambles, taught her how to ride when she was 11. By 14, she started racing, winning her first race that year. At age 19, she advanced to the AMA Pro Racing national circuit. Her final professional race was the 1985 Women’s National Championship in Palmdale, Calif., where she ultimately finished third after running out of fuel in the final moto. Following her retirement from racing, Fish focused on personal fitness training and mountain bike racing, where she raced for the Factory Yeti team and was a consistent top finisher in National Off-Road Bicycle Association competition. Sue Fish was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2012.

Cycle Care......Clean

Motorcycle Specific Cleaning Products??------- Who ever heard of that?? Well-- 24 years ago --NO ONE. Some would say “ Isn’t all that snake oil about the same”??-- For the motorcyclist, the Cycle Care brand changed all that, and the answer is absolutely not. In the early 90”s, Cycle Care Formulas® basically “stood alone” in the industry, by designing and manufacturing motorcycle specific and motorcycle friendly cleaning products. The founders, Bonnie and Jerry Meadors were and are extreme “clean freaks”. Due to their vocational background, they knew that:

• Bike washing didn’t have to strip the wax or polish, stain your leather, scar your windshield or create difficult to remove water spotting. • Bug management occurs before the impact. (a durable polish/ protectant will prohibit the bug from sticking & allow for easy removal.) • Windshield maintenance should provide protection, durability, repel water, and preserve the windshield as new. • Wheel cleaners should not damage your tires or wheels, the environment, your person, or your driveway. • Leather, vinyl and rubber protectors/ conditioners do not have to be oily, greasy or slippery & should have UV protection and be water repellant.

Today, Cycle Care®, still stands alone in “Motorcycle Specific Products”. Most, if not all competitive motorcycle branded/labeled products, are re-labels of automotive products with a motorcycle photo and motorcycle copy on the label. Usually, nothing much is wrong with the car product except that the performance and durability is usually ORDINARY, and in many cases, damaging to multiple motorcycle surfaces. The Cycle Care ® mantra and promise has been: “Our products will not harm any surface that water will not harm.” That’s a big promise, but one that certainly registers “big time” with Motorcycle owners. Page 20 www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com

n ~ Polish ~ Protect For a motorcycle owner-------ORDINARY JUST DOESN’T WORK. The rider who loves his or her motorcycle, prefers a Motorcycle Specific product that removes all worries and concerns associated with cleaning, polishing and protecting their beloved. (Notice the Heart on all Cycle Care ®Labels) Our marketing focus has been around the belief that the motorcyclist was the most likely consumer to purchase or be interested in products BEYOND the ORDINARY. Today, Cycle Care® produces 15 “Motorcycle Specific” cleaners, polishes and preservatives. Not all motorcycles require 15 formulas, but with the scope of our coverage, all needs are met. Most all Formulas are produced in multiple packages, from the smaller retail sizes, to gallon containers and just recently Cycle Care® introduced, Five Formulas in 30 gallon poly drums for Dealership’s Service Departments. Cycle Care® also produced and promotes a” Detail Center” retail point of purchase display, that houses all 15 products plus a 10 product Detailing Tool Accessory Assortment. Micro Fiber towels, brushes, Micro Fiber Chamois etc. No matter what a retail customer asks for, The Dealer “has it covered” all on one display with one brand and one vendor. Who could ask for more?? The entire Cycle Care Formulas® brand, is Distributed Exclusively by the LeMans Corp through their Drag Specialties® and Parts Unlimited® marketing programs.

The guy says, “Who is this?” “This is the maid.”, answered the woman. “We don’t have a maid!” “I was just hired this morning by the lady of the house.” “Well, this is her husband. Is she there?” “Ummm .... she’s upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I just figured was her husband.” The guy is fuming. He says to the maid, “Listen, would you like to make $50,000?” “What do I have to do?” “I want you to get my gun from my desk in the den and shoot that witch and the jerk she is with.” The maid puts down the phone. The guy hears footsteps, followed by two gunshots. The maid comes back to the phone. “What should I do with the bodies?” “Throw them in the swimming pool!” “What?! There’s no pool here?” Long pause... “Uh .... is this 832-4821?”

A wife and her husband were having a dinner party for all the major status figures in Rome, Italy. The wife was very excited about this and wanted everything to be perfect. At the very last minute, she realized that she didn’t have any snails for this dinner party, so she asked her husband to run down to the beach with the bucket she was handing him to gather some snails. Very grudgingly he agreed. He took the bucket, walked out the door, down the steps, and out to the beach. As he was collecting the snails, he noticed a beautiful woman strolling alongside the water just a little further down the beach. He kept thinking to himself “Wouldn’t it be great if she would even just come down and talk to me.” He went back to gathering the snails. All of a sudden he looked up, and the beautiful woman was standing right over him. They got to talking, and she THE ELEVATOR invited him back to her place.

Welcome back Full Throttle readers and riders! What a season it’s been folks! We had some great weather for the Lake of the Ozarks Bikefest, record numbers in attendance for Sturgis and with no major mishaps reported from Daytona Bikeweek, it seems that the season is winding down to a calm dull roar. As some of us are looking to get in those final rides before putting the ole bike away, some of us look to extend the season and stretch it as long as we can. Let’s face it, is there a better time of year to enjoy a ride? Missouri’s hill country has so much to offer the rider this time of year! Crisp weather and some of the most amazing colors throughout the fall foliage! As I’ve said before, personally this really is one of my favorite times of year to ride. Here in the Midwest, we the rider, know the struggles of waking up early in the morning and looking out the window to what appears to be an amazing day! Sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky...and the temperature reading on my weather app indicates that it’s in fact 37 degrees out at that currant moment with a high of say somewhere in the mid 60’s to 70’s. Some days it can be up to a 40 degree difference which can demand two wardrobes. As for me I can’t stand looking or feeling like the little brother Randy from “A Christmas Story”. All bundled up, can’t feel anything at your fingertips, can’t move or function properly and worst off, by the time you get all those layers on, much like poor Randy, that’s about the time you will inevitably have to pee.

Don’t be fooled by the sun beating down on you while you stand in the driveway getting hot on that 50 degree day. It may feel nice at the moment but as you hit the high way the wind chill factor sets in. Wind chill factors can take the outside ambient temperatures and almost cut them in half! On that 50 degree day at 70mph that equates to 38 degrees and at that temp without the proper gear it is possible to go into hypothermia within 30 minutes. One’s motor skills and reaction times will slow down, rational thinking is out the door and uncontrollable shaking of the extremities is something to keep an eye out for. DO NOT put yourself in this situation!

Now I’m normally telling y’all what to put on your bike to fight these colder temps this time of year. And yes we can install windshields, fairing lowers, heated grips and heated seats, but this time I really just want to talk about what can be applied to the body to combat the gnarly temperatures before you even depart. As I made reference to our buddy Randy, it can be hard to translate sensation to the

finger tips as well as move around with enough comfort to ride. So let’s reduce the layers and go high tech!! First off focus on windproof products, leather is always an option but there are now windproof products from Harley like the windproof fleece hoodie! With proper layering my windproof does very well with temps dipping well into the 40’s and 30’s. Anything to keep the wind off the skin itself is best! Now let’s talk heated gear! What better way to keep warm then to bring your own heater? The product line from Harley, as well as many from the aftermarket industry has really come a long way. You can now get anything from a heated jacket to heated socks for that chilly ride. With multiple settings from low heat to scorching, every rider will be able to find the “Goldilocks Zone”; just right! What’s one of the best parts of this heated gear you ask? It’s all battery operated! That’s right! No more looking like Geppettos Puppet; no more hard wires tying you to the bike. The old technology had you hardwired into the battery leaving you with a mess of cords and not to mention possibly stressing your battery and charging system depending on the amount of gear, accessories and riders running off the bike itself. Beyond all the tech mumbo jumbo I haven’t even mentioned the most important part about ditching the cords. Let’s be honest, on a cold chilly day what’s the first thing we all do once we get off the bike? That’s right! It’s a race against you and your bladder to get off the bike haul you know what to the nearest bathroom. Why start those races tethered to a boat anchor? Now I know most of you are thinking “I can’t get my Iphone’s battery to last throughout the day. How well is this gonna work?” Well I own some gear and I will say it holds up very well. In fact the highest setting is almost too much to handle and that will last about 2 hours at full blast. On some of the lower settings the gear can last up to 6-8 hours. The heated gear is designed to be layered up and combined with your existing outerwear to keep you comfortable in uncomfortable conditions. Without the cords think of the applications you could apply this tech gear to? I wore my heated shirt last year while snowboarding. Take the gear to deer camp; no more freezing hands while shoveling the driveway, tailgate in the coldest of temps! Although I don’t recommend heated gloves and cold beer, that’s a recipe for some serious climate change issues. So this year I challenge all our readers and riders to push to seasons limits. No need to get out the snow chains, but let’s keep rolling. See how far you can go. I promise it is exhilarating! Thanks for stopping by and y’all enjoy the ride!

Big St. Charles Harley-Davidson has done it again. Teaming up with 105.7 The Point, “The Rissuto Show”, the two made dreams come true for this Iraq Veteran, Carlos Luna. It started with 105.7, The Rissuto Show, making an annoucement that they were going to help sponsor a motorcycle restoration project for one deserving individual. Carlos’ girlfriend, Kalei Provow, heard about the contest and wrote into the station. Reading her story, they couldn’t help but to make this veterans dreams a realty. Carlos had a 1978 Sporster, literatly in pieces; he couldn’t even remember the last time it was started. Being in the Army Reserves and serving his tour of duty in Irag, left Carlos no time for his bike. He kept it stored in a friends garage and for all he knew, that’s where it sat. Unbeknowst to him, Marshall Tucker and his amazing team, Kyle Brooks, Nick Joseph, and Dave Dodson got a hold of it and began the restoration. Marshall decribed this bike as a “basket case”; it was delivered to the dealership in big tubberware bins. His first thought was, “what did I get us into”. For the love of a challange, he and his team jumped in with both feet. With long hours and giving up personal time, the crew at Big St. Charles Harley-Davidson completed this build just in the nick of time; even putting the final touches on it as it sat on the showroom floor right before the big reveal. On October 10th, 2015, Carlos showed up at the dealership thinking he was there to help a buddy buy a bike. To his surprise that wasn’t the case. After finding out what was happening and having his completely restored 1978 Harley-Davidson Sporster revealed; it rendered his speechless. He will forever be grateful to his girlfriend, 105.7 The Point, “The Rizzuto Show”, and the team at Big St. Charles Harley-Davidson for their amazing generosity.


In 1901 the Hendee Manufacturer Company introduced the 1.75 HP single cylinders Indian. Soon to follow in 1903 Harley Davidson motorcycles were being produced. People fell in love with motorcycle speed, and competitive racing provided a quick following. Come 1909, Europe had already established a type of BOARD TRACK RACING with bicycles that was brought to the United States to form a motorcycle racing sanction. The European track was referred to as a “Velodrome” (velo meaning bicycle in French). When this circle track concept was brought to the U.S. and adding the horsepower of a small engine, the sport was deemed the track name MOTORDROME. The clever mind of Jack Prince is responsible for the design of the Motordrome tracks. With no bit architectural engineering background, he envisioned his layout, drew it out, and walked the prospective area placing stakes to site the measurements. The rest construction was up to the builders. Jack Prince

Motordrome Plat Pap These tracks were unique in their construction due to their banking slope, and being made of 2”x4” wood boards (usually from Pine) laid down lengthwise over a wooden frame, wooden guardrails, and catch fences to stop the riders in case of flying off their motorcycles. While the bicycle tracks used a regulation of 25 degree banking; the motorcycle and car racing tracks banked up to 60 degrees. With banking this steep it created greater velocity for radial outward centrifugal force to fling bikes around faster, by accelerating speeds 100 mph or more. No motor vehicle had ever gone at those fast track speeds before.

The first track to be developed in the U.S. was built in Playa Del Ray, CA Priesters Park St. Louis (The Los Angeles Coliseum BalloonRaces Motordrome) at a length of 1.25 miles long. The particular track location today is now LAX Airport. A total of 24 tracks to follow were built around the country ranging as short as 1/4 mile to as long as 2 miles. In 1914, one of those 1/4 mile tracks just so happened to have been here locally in St. Louis, MO in what used to be Priester’s Park at Grand and Meramec. It was 24 feet high

and held 50 thousand people. The designer upped the ante to a 62 degree bank; making it the steepest Motordrome banking curves in the world. This park was also home of the local Balloon Races. No trace of this Motordrome exists today. There was one major issue, and that was this type of racing was extremely dangerous for both the riders and the spectators. Essentially, the riders wore no protective clothing. To top it off; the motorcycles rode on slender skid prone tires leading to failure due to poor track conditions, had no brakes, no front or rear suspension, or throttle. Not even a clutch. Just St. Louis Motordrome 9-6-1914 a chain from the engine sprocket to the rear wheel; and many riders even removed the chain for better maneuverability. At least those driving without a chain were wise enough to wear heavy leg guards for protection. Now at the speeds these riders were traveling, there were only two ways of slowing down or stopping: use a kill switch as a brake by reducing engine compression and coast to a lesser speed, or just flat out crash. If one was unfortunate to crash yet defeat fatality, they were for certain to be gouged by an abundance of splinters when their bodies slid down the track, as well as wooden debris and Racer on track fragments flying in their face and full body resulting in infection. Right about now you’re probably questioning; who in their right mind would perform this type of death wish? It was bad enough that the riders were at risk of detrimental injury or death; but the construction of the dome itself posed threat to the spectators to being victims of circumstance as well if a rider crashed. The tracks lacked safety barriers for the spectators. They would view from the grandstand bleachers or platforms leaning over the track to get in the action. If a rider lost control and crashed, there was a likelihood they would be flung up head on and scale the wall spiral bound from the g-force of speed, right into the stands and take out others in the crowd during the process. Those catch fences I mentioned weren’t very helpful.

On September 8, 1912, a race altering incident occurred at the New Jersey Motordrome in

www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com Page 39

Atlantic City, which changed the future outlook of this sport for the worse. Rider Eddie Hasha was in the lead on his 8-valve Indian motorcycle when his engine misfired. While driving he was able to reach down and adjust the spark plug. The sudden rapid power shot him straight up the rail and killed 4 young men whom were extended over the railing to cheer on the race. Hasha also died when he next slammed into a post that catapulted him into the stands, and also injured 10 more spectators. To top it off, Hasha’s Indian swung back down the track pummeling into rider Johnny Albright, causing him to collide with 2 other motorcycles. He later died in the hospital. This dramatic crisis leads to authorities permanently closing down the New Jersey track. The sport acquired the nickname “MURDERDROME”. More and more accidents and causalities accrued in a short time. Due to repeated deaths, by 1913 Board Tracks under 1/3 mile were losing their sanctioning for championship events. Springfield Boardtrack

Many of these accidents were contributed from the wooden tracks becoming too rough to ride on. They required board replacement approximately every 5 years. Although initially the tracks were cheap to construct, their upkeep maintenance was costly from constant wear and tear; plus deterioration by nature because there were no weather proofing products available in this era. Take a track like the first build in California of 1.25 miles in length at a million board feet would cost $125,000 to resurface. That’s some serious cash for lumber in the 1910-1920’s time frame. So a more frugal method was to be had and repairs were done from below the track. Sometimes even during a race with vehicles zipping by from above.

Cleveland Oliver Death (St. Louis)

When the stock market crashed on October 29, 1929 leading to the Great Depression, the GDP fell through 1932. The sense of the country becoming poverty stricken contributed to the fact these tracks were too expensive to rebuild. By 1931, of the 24 Unites States tracks, 20 had completely shut down or were abandoned. Between this and the numerous deaths over the years; in 1932, Board Track Racing came to an end and all tracks were closed by then. Clyde Stillwell Death (St. Louis)

1989 Porsche Speedster

Page 42 www.FullThrottle-Magazine.com

Car Mania

Only 2,104 examples of the new Speedster were built between January and September of 1989, and of that total, only 823 were delivered to the United States. The Speedster, option number M503, was the last variant based on the outgoing K-program chassis, which was soon to be replaced by the almost totally new Type 964. Porsche offered the new Speedster in both slant-nose and turbo-body variants in Germany, but only the turbo-look was sold in the U.S. The 911 Speedster was distinctively shaped by Porsche’s styling department, then under the direction of Tony Lapine. It offered a cut-down windshield reminiscent of the original, a minimal “emergency” single-layer fabric top, and a twin-humped fiberglass tonneau that covered the area where the occasional rear seats would have lived. The front quarter windows were eliminated, and the new side windows were manually operated. Like the original 356 Speedster, the new version was rarely seen with its top up. But because it was designed pre-Carrera 4, it was not a Porsche 911 of the future. In fact, the ’89 Speedster would be the last 911 model built at the old Stuttgart factory. Starting with the 964 series, Porsche shifted 911 production to a modern new plant near its Stuttgart headquarters. Like the rest of the immensely popular 3.2 Carrera line introduced in 1984, the Speedster was fitted with a rear-mounted, air-cooled SOHC flat-six (Type 930/25) of 3,164-cubic centimeter displacement. This engine, equipped with Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection, could produce 215 horsepower at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque was 195 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm, which was delivered through a Type G50 fully synchronized five-speed manual transaxle. Oil-fed chain tensioners, which were introduced on the Carrera-series engines, helped to make this a very robust and long-lived powerplant. Power-assisted and ventilated disc brakes were mounted at all four corners, with an 11.8-inch diameter in the front and a 12.1-inch diameter in the rear. • • • • • • • • • •
