Our vision is to unite all riders. Let’s do it boys! You know who I’m talking about. After all it’s about hittin’ the open road and gathering with others who ride the iron horse. Just a thought.

KANSAS CITY, MO
No Coast Punx!! Coming straight outta the Heart of America!! We’re a Kansas City, Missouri 4 piece, swinging fists of passion & fury, singing songs of change, unity, & social awareness! Being influenced by everything from California Punk to New York Hardcore has allowed us to produce a sound quite eclectic & versatile, which quickly has set us apart from our local cohorts. Playing Loud, Fast, & Aggressive it’s no secret that we’ve got a message needing to be heard. In a scene almost non-existent, we’re dedicated to “holding down the fort” so to speak. Playing steadily around KC for the last 3 years, with short ventures out, we’ve managed to play with & support a number of great bands & meet some great people.To show our love & support for local music, also to help touring bands, we ran a DIY All Ages venue in KC called –Bobbys loft (recently on hiatus) In 2009 we released a 7 song EP recorded at UTG Studios called- “Bombs Away!!” available at shows, CDBABY.COM & I TUNES. Also available, we’re featured on the local Kansas City Compilation “Fountains of Folly vol.1” available at shows only, as well as Brown Bag Propaganda’s “Radio Riot vol.2” also available at shows and through Brown Bag Propaganda….Soon to be featured on both follow up compilations “Fountains of Folly vol.2” & “Radio Riot vol.3” CONTACT INFO: WWW.MYSPACE.COM/BOMBSOVERBROADWAY

Full Throttle Book Review
HOW TO BUILD A BOBBER ON A BUDGET Jose de Miguel (Author) Publisher: Motorbooks; 1st edition
In the old days all a person needed to build a killer custom motorcycle was a bike, a set of tools, a little know-how, and a creative vision. But with the rise of the high-dollar, haute moteur Gucci choppers, the true custom bike has gotten out of most ridersâ€™ reach, right? Dead wrong. In this book Jose de Miguel, a custom builder from way back, sets out to prove that those good old days never ended. In the clearest and simplest terms, he shows readers how they can turn odds and ends found around the shop into one-off motorcycle parts--and make a cheap, run-of-the mill custom build into a drop-dead show stopper. Following de Miguelâ€™s lead, along with his straightforward illustrations, any resourceful owner with rudimentary mechanical skills, a basic tool kit, and--most importantly--a modicum of imagination can build the bobber of his dreams for less than the price of a new bike.

HAGGIS RECIPE Ingredients 1 sheep stomach 1 sheep liver 1 sheep heart 1 sheep tongue 1/2 pound suet, minced
3 medium onions, minced 1/2 pound dry oats, toasted 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon dried ground herbs
Directions Rinse the stomach thoroughly and soak overnight in cold salted water. Rinse the liver, heart, and tongue. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook these parts over medium heat for 2 hours. Remove and mince. Remove any gristle or skin and discard. In a large bowl, combine the minced liver, heart, tongue, suet, onions, and toasted oats. Season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs. Moisten with some of the cooking water so the mixture binds. Remove the stomach from the cold salted water and fill 2/3 with the mixture. Sew or tie the stomach closed. Use a turning fork to pierce the stomach several times. This will prevent the haggis from bursting. In a large pot of boiling water, gently place the filled stomach, being careful not to splash. Cook over high heat for 3 hours. Serve with mashed potatoes, if you serve it at all. minutes. Turn the wings over halfway during cooking so they cook evenly.

ROLLASTAND For Harley and Metric cruisers
There are two Rollastand models and this one is designed for bigger bikes by giving heavier rollers that also have more traction for the belt driven motorcycles. The Rollastand can be placed on any flat surface for the wheels of the bike to be placed on. Once the bike is set on the stand and the bike is in neutral it will allow the wheels to be rotated with the bike staying in place. Washing wheels is effortless and the bike does not have to be rolled all over the place in order to get the entire wheel cleaned. Chain cleaning is also simplified by not having to roll the bike up to 10 feet or having someone else spin the wheel while applying chain cleaner and brushing road grime off of the chain. It is very comfortable for one person to operate the Rollastand and will not allow the bike to fall over with its close clearance to the ground. The Hardline product comes with a one year limited warranty on of defects and workmanship.
Other information to address is that it is NOT a rotation device to be used with the bike running. Do not try and start the bike and run it for any reason, it will shoot out allowing the wheel to hook up and the outcome will most likely be the bike in a unintended position on the ground. The Rollastand also has sealed bearings in the rollers; so do not put any kind of solvents or cleaners on the stand to clean it up. Instead, just use a rag to wipe down the product for storage.
Instructions for use:
1. Use the Rollastand¨ on a flat and level area, such as a concrete driveway or workshop floor. Do not use the Rollastand¨ on sloping or uneven surfaces. 2. Make sure that the motorcycle ignition is switched off and the gears are in neutral. FOR REAR WHEEL USE: 1. Place the Rollastand 15 inches behind the back wheel. 2. Make sure that the rollers of the Rollastand¨ are at right angles to the direction the wheels to be cleaned. See photo`s on packaging. 3. Take the weight of the Motorcycle off the side stand and manually roll the motorcycle onto the Rollastand¨. You will feel a small bump as the Motorcycle wheel rides over the first roller; allow the wheel to come to rest between the rollers. Allow the motorcycle to rest on the kickstand with the steering at full left lock. 4. Some owners may feel that their motorcycle is leaning too much at this point. Add a small wood block under the side stand to adjust the level of the motorcycle Price:49.99 Contact Information www.hardlineproducts.com (805)581-4700 Tested by: Garrett Bahr 30

FTM Bi-State Area Sales Managers Finally! Spring is in sight! Man, we thought it would never get here! Last year was mine and Tracy’s first full year together with this great magazine. We learned a lot thanks to the guidance of our editors, Steve and Brandie, and totally plan on putting that knowledge to use in 2010. They are truly the “Spine” of Full Throttle Midwest, and just wait till you see what they are going to pull off this summer!! Now, last issue we mentioned Bike Nights. You will find Tracy and I at 3 this year. Wild Weds at Shady Jacks! If you haven’t been to Shady Jacks, you are missing out on one hell of a good time. And lets clear up a silly rumor here. You don’t have to ride a Harley or Chopper to be at Shady’s. Metric and sport bikes are encouraged to come join in the fun, and usually do. Hooters? Yes sir, Friday nights, and they will be even better than last year. And what about all the rumors of a new bike night in Illinois? They are true, and true in a very big way. A lot of great people have come together to put on the best Bike Night the area has ever seen. The areas 2 best Mags, FTM and Thunder Roads present “Hot Summer Bike Nights” starting April 15th, at The Pasta House in Fairview Heights! This Bike Night is sponsored by Frieze Harley Davidson, Chick Fritz Dist, Miller Lite, Coors Lite, and Thunder Alley Promotions!! This night will be off the hook! Vendors, prizes, and more! Check out the ad in this issue for more, and we will see you all there. As always we would like to thank our advertisers. They are our extended family and we ask that you patron all advertisers no matter what mag you see them in. They are reaching out to you, the riders and welcoming you into their business. Many of them depend on the biking community for survival. Without them, where would we all go? Now let’s hit the road!!
