Hello and Happy Holidays !!! I would like to say that I will miss 2012 but that would be a lie. To be honest, it was a difficult year and I am happy it is in my rear view mirror. I am looking forward to 2013 as the economy seems to be picking up and we have a lot of things planned for the next few months! Of course, this month is full of Holiday Toy Runs highlighted by our 15th Annual Toy Run to St. Joseph’s Hospital on Saturday, December 15th. This is one of the coolest runs ever as we actually get to talk to the kids and their parents. The hospital really needs our help and the toys we bring go directly to the kids in St.Joes. Registration starts at Tampa Harley-Davidson at 10:00am and kickstands go up at noon. We run to the hospital and will have an after-party following the run. This is the time of the year when the biking community stands tall! During the next 30 days, bikers will donate toys, games, clothing and money to numerous charities, families and children across the State of Florida. No other group can match what we do and it is the time to be proud! I want to thank all of you who will attend a toy run this month and open your heart and wallets to those in need. It’s not too early to start thinking about the Annual Full Throttle Expo and Bike Builder Invitational that will take place January 25-27, 2013 at Quaker Steak & Lube. This is the biggest and baddest motorcycle event that happens in the Tampa Bay area and we have a great lineup this year! We are bringing in the “Blues Brothers Band” direct from Universal Studios for Saturday night! These guys put on a spectacular show and you won’t want to miss it. Saturday will also mark the debut of Jeff Vitolo and the Quarter Mile Rebels (the old Dive Bar Stalkers), the Miss Full Throttle Pageant and The Black Honkeys! Friday night will feature The Greg Billings Band and we will have a fireworks display both nights! I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please party responsibly and always look out for “the other guy”! I hope you will attend our Toy Run to .Joseph’s ... the hospital needs our toys and the kids need our help!

As we end this year and look back on 2012, you can see how Full Throttle continues to grow in many ways. We are not just a print magazine anymore. We are a MULTI-MEDIA FORCE TO BE RECONED WITH in the motorcycle community. In December, we will be launching our newest platform of Multi-Media in the form of an application (Mobile App.) for your cell/smart phone. It will have all types of gadgets, links, maps, pictures, calendar of events, bike nights and much more for the rider to use at their convenience when they are out riding looking for a destination to ride to. Full Throttle has many ways to reach today's motorcycle rider; monthly with the printed magazine, weekly with our popular weekly e-mail blast and live webshow, daily with our facebook page and newly re-designed website, and now on the road with our smart phone app. Full Throttle has all the tools for you to use and advertise to the biker community, all you have to do is open the tool box. Feel free to call our offices at 813-814-1424 any time to get our advertising rates and special packages that gets you all of our advertising outlets for one low price. The next two months have some great events that everyone should try and make for many reasons. In December there is always Jim's HUGE police escorted ride the first Sunday of the Month (December 2nd). There is also the Cookson Hills Toy run the same day. Choose one at least and make it a holiday tradition like most of you already have. Next will be the Biff Burger Annual Benefit bike show on December 8th and also the Pinellas Park Holiday Parade that Full Throttle will be in the same day. We will have the Full Throttle Fire Truck and the Full Throttle F-150 with two very special surprise celebrities, one on each vehicle! Next is Dealer Days on Sunday December 9th at Quaker Steak and Lube with Bobby Friss Band, lots of dealers with their product showcase, a 42" TV give-a-way and much more. Then you have the Full Throttle Teddy Bear Toy Run December 15th that starts at Tampa Harley and goes to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital. and of Course the Suncoast Brotherhood Toy Run Sunday December 16th that starts at the K-Mart in Dunedin and usually has hundreds of riders each year. The point is there are a lot of great events out there so try and do as many as you can for the kids and the charities that are involved. The end of the year to us here at Full Throttle means that the Motorcycle Expo & Bike Builder Invitational is right around the corner. This year is going to be bigger and better than ever. We will have FREE fireworks displays on both Friday and Saturday nights this year. The Greg Billings Band will be our headliner on Friday night right after the fireworks. Saturday is jam packed like last year with the Black Honkeys, the Miss Full Throttle Contest, Fireworks and our headliner, The Universal Studios Blues Brothers Band brought to you by Walker Ford and Ford Power Stroke Diesel. Bikes from all over the US will be here to compete for $10,000 in cash prizes in the Bike Builder Invitational with a grand prize of $5,000 to one winner. We also brought in the IMBBA (International Master Bike Builder Association) to help us judge the amazing bikes that will be on display and find that ONE winner! Sunday will be all the awards, a ride in bike show and we will be featuring the Soul Circus Cowboys on the main stage most of the day. Besides all of that great events happening, there will be over 100 vendors, $100 hourly cash givea-ways, a custom chopper chance drawing and much more. If you are a vendor and would like a space contact us at 813-8141424. If you would like to become a sponsor contact me at 727-919-1743. I would like to take this time and wish all of our readers, friends, family, co-workers and anyone else a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Be safe and be smart, much love and I will see you soon!. STRAWBERRIES xoxoxo

Wow, the year has flown by! We’ve had a wonderful year and a very busy one too! On October 31st we dressed as “Angels” and collected children’s Pajamas for our annual Pajama Program to benefit Alpha House. Due to Hurricane Sandy, we decided to continue our collection efforts for those children affected by Sandy as well. We have collection bins located at our home base, Quaker Steak & Lube (10400 49th St N), Euphoria Salon and Day Spa (6600 10th Ave. N St. Petersburg) and Peace Wealth Management (7180 Seminole Blvd. Seminole). We need every size of pj’s so please help! For additional information, contact Michele at 727-251-2682. We have also been riding to Ms. Vickie’s and Crabby Bills to name a few and we took part in the Autism Speaks ride as well as the Full Throttle Sweet 16 Anniversary Celebration at Quaker Steak & Lube. December we will participate in the Cookson Toy ride as well as other toy runs sponsored by various groups. Anything for the children.  We were invited to ride in the Largo Christmas Parade this year by Bikers Raising Awareness (BRA) and I’m sure it’s going to be a good time! First up for the new year will be the 2nd Annual Head Shaving Event with our very own Diva Angels Director, Robin Williams on January 16th. $5.00 raffle tickets went on sale on October 31st so if you see a Diva; get a ticket for heaven sake! Proceeds will be equally divided between The St. Pete Free Clinic & The Spring… domestic violence shelter. We are showing we care by shaving some hair!! Go Robin!!! Last but not least; The Diva Angels would also like to wish everyone a Blessed Holiday and a Happy New Year! **We meet the second Tuesday of each month at Ker's Winghouse in Pinellas Park on US Hwy 19, social at 5:30pm and meeting starts at 6:30pm. There is also a “Meet & Greet” afterwards for new members and guests to learn more about the Diva Angels of Tampa Bay and to share what as a new member you would like to get out of our group. We only accept female members but we welcome friends, partners, husbands, etc. to join us in most activities. You must join the National Diva Angels, Inc. before joining The Diva Angels of Tampa Bay.** Be safe and rubber side down, Sheree (Sassy) Marketing and Media Director Diva Angels Tampa Bay Chapter

Our best 16th Birthday Party has just gone by for us for November and Full Throttle had a real big turnout at this event. We really made a splash at this year's party with the World Record biggest trophy that measured in at just over 30 feet high. Our birthday took place at Quaker Steak and Lube and we packed the place. Randy was our one and only mouth and he really did one fine job of stirring the crowd, thanks Randy. We brought back some old school biker games and the crowd really enjoyed them. We did games like the weenie bit and the ever popular slow race. There was a huge crowd of people watching the slow race and really cheering it on. Well, December is here and that means all the great holiday toy runs are back. All I can say is try and make as many as you can for the kids in need, and make sure you make The Full Throttle Teddy Bear Toy Run that starts at Tampa HarleyDavidson on Dale Mabry and goes to St. Joseph’s Children Hospital. My little Santa for December is Rebeckah who also did a good job on the slow race, as the starter flag girl, to kick off the start of our games at QSL. Thank you Rebeckah for just looking so good. Til Next Time, Keep It Upright, Big Al

Quote: “Success is built on quality, construction and customer service.”

I’ve been a professional tattoo artist since 2002. I started my apprenticeship about a year after high school in Michigan, and spent the next 6 years there tattooing away. I then moved to Florida in 2007 and have been here ever since. All of my work is custom, so all you need to do is come in with your ideas, and I’ll be more than happy to draw it for you. I travel all over the world and across the United States doing guest spots and conventions. You can keep track of all my travels on my personal website, www.jeremiahmccabetattoos. com. Most of my tattoos are an illustrative style with a traditional flair, although I do enjoy doing realism and portraits as well. I really enjoy doing larger pieces like sleeves and back pieces these days, but I’m available for all kinds of tattoos and other art work.

I have been working in the motorcycle industry doing custom seats for over 14years. All we do is motorcycle seats and we do it right! We handle all makes and models of seats and we specialize in aligator seats, vests, bikini’s and saddle bags. We are the originators of memory foam in motorcycle seats with over 25 years of experience at the VA Hospital. If you have an idea on a custom seat for your ride, brig it to us and we will make your idea come alive. Wing World Magazine featured us as one of the top ten seat builders in the country in this past May edition. Be sure to stop by our booth at the Florida Motorcycle Expo at Quaker Steak and Lube in January and say hi and see some of our custom seats available.

Years ago I went to a bike show where they gave away the largest trophy - my friend Ed Tooley won it. This past month Full Throttle gave away the world's largest trophy at the Full Throttle 15th year birthday party so Ed Tooley won this one also - it is quite a bike that he won it with. I wish everyone could see it - here is a photo of it to the right. I wasn't there cuz I pulled a muscle in my back and couldnt get there. I am sure that Ed was very happy. I do not know what he will do with it - maybe he will add a taller room to his house. I am glad for you Ed - it made me happy. I want to tell you a story - years ago there was a get together at a biker's campground - bikers came from far and wide. The first afternoon as one of them was pulling in he was t-boned by a car. It was quite a wreck - bike parts were scattered everywhere. An ambulance came and the guy wasn't in too bad of shape - they spent a lot of time patching him up. Loaded him up on a stretcher, put him in the ambulance and as they pulled away there was a little zipper bag on the ground. Someone picked it up and looked inside there was a big toe. Everyone was amazed and shocked but we knew what to do - we called the ambulance company and told them. They said they would take care of it. Hours passed and no one showed up. If they could get there quick enough they could reattach it. Something needed to be done. So we decided to call the sheriff and tell them the story. They said they would take care of it. The next morning came and it was still there. Finally someone in the crowd said I know what to do...call a big toe truck and they might haul it off. Big toe truck came and hauled it off. See you soon Lucille...

HOME IMPROVEMENT=ECONNMIC IMPROVMENT Lowe’s reported that their third-quarter income surged 76 percent to $396-million. Revenues were up and this is just another indication that the economy is starting to improve!

BIG MOUSE, DEEP POCKETS

ONE MORE SEASON OF LUCK With the end of the Hurricane Season the State of Florida has once again beat the odds. Although 114 hurricanes have hit our state since 1851, the Sunshine State has not been hit by a hurricane since 2005. There were 20 named storms in 2012 and just two hit the United States (Isaac and Sandy).

After months of waiting, Magic kingdom’s Fantasyland’s expansion was completed and the Disney wonderland will have its grand opening on December 6th. The “Big Mouse” will spend a total of $425-million on the expansion that will continue into 2013.

COLD SHOULDER FOR HOCKEY FANS

DON’T HAVE A CONTERFEIT CHRISTMAS With the holiday season upon us, it’s time for everybody to really be on the lookout for counterfeit and fake items. Counterfeit items cost the US economy at least $200-million a year and the high point is during the Xmas season. Flea markets, convenience stores and websites are the top places to look out for. Always read the labels, check wrapping and be alert. If it looks like a deal that’s too good to be true ... it is probably a fake!

The National Hockey League is a joke! We have billionaire owners fighting millionaire players and the fans suffer with no hockey. At press time, the league just canceled all games up to December 14 as well as the annual all-star game. During the past few years, the league has had more strikes than any other sport and fans are getting to the point where we just don’t care anymore!

KEEP IT DOWN BELL GUY!!

ATTA-A-BUCS

December is the month where the teams in the National Football League decide who will make the playoffs. At our press time, the Buccaneers are still in the hunt and playing damn good football. No matter what happens, a big “atta-a-boy” needs to go out to quarterback Josh Freeman, rookie running back Doug Martin, general manager Mark Dominik, new head coach Greg Schiano and his entire staff! The team exceeded all expectations and were in every game!

The Salvation Army may have to quiet down their bell ringing! A business owner in New Hampshire complained that the bell was too loud and called the police. After the complaint, the Salvation Army is looking for a quieter bell to ring!

A senior citizen was at his local Publix buying a large bag of Purina Dog Chow for his loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman behind him asked if he had a dog. Did she think he had an elephant? Retired with little to do, on impulse he told her no, he didn’t have a dog, He was starting the Purina Diet again adding he probably shouldn’t, because he ended up in the hospital last time, but had lost 50 pounds before he awoke in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of his orifices and IVs in both arms. He told her it was essentially a Perfect Diet and how it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and he was going to try it again. Horrified, she asked if he ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned him. His answer was a beaut, “No, I stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me.” Never under estimate the humor of seniors! ************************************** The owner of a golf course in Georgia is confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called her into his office and said, “Y’all graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help. If I wuz to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?” The secretary quickly replied, “Everthang but my earrings.”

The dentist pulls out a Novocain needle to give the man a shot, so he can extract the man’s tooth. ‘No way! No needles. I hate needles’ the patient said. The dentist starts to hook up the nitrous oxide and the man objects I can’t do the gas thing. The thought of having the gas mask on is suffocating to me! The dentist then asks the patient if he has any objection to taking a pill. ‘No objection,’ the patient says. ‘I’m fine with pills.’ The dentist then returns and says, Here’s a Viagra tablet.’ The patient says, ‘Wow! I didn’t know Viagra worked as a pain killer!’ ‘It doesn’t’ ,said the dentist, ‘but it’s going to give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth!” *********************************************

CHRISTMAS QUICKIES

The 85-year-old had just finished his morning jog and wasn’t even short of breath. The 80-year-old was amazed at the guy’s stamina and asked him what he did to have so much energy. `The 85-year-old said, “Well, I eat rye bread every day. It keeps your energy level high and you’ll have great stamina with the ladies.” So, on the way home the 80-year-old stopped at the bakery. As he was looking around, the saleslady asked if he needed any help. He said, “Do you have any rye bread?” She said, “Yes, there’s a whole shelf of it. Would you like some?” He said, “I want 5 loaves.” She said, “My goodness, 5 loaves! By the time you get to the 3rd loaf, it’ll be hard.” He replied, “I can’t believe everybody knows about this sh*t but me.” ************************************
