I love the Month of May! Not only is it my birthday month (May 4th) but we also have a ton of events going on including our Annual Florida Motorcycle Expo on Memorial Day Weekend that will be held at OCC Roadhouse and Bert’s Barracuda Harley. We have some great bands playing this year including Fastball and LILIAC. This is a Three-day event happening Friday through Sunday on Memorial Day Weekend and is always a blast! Tons of vendors, live music, $100 and hour cash give-a-way, a huge 15 class ride in Bike Show on Saturday and much more. This is also a FREE EVENT TO ATTEND but you must buy tickets to see the national acts in the evening. We hope to see everyone at this year’s Expo. There is a new Bike Fest in Florida, and it is in Tallahassee. The Rally in Tally is happening this year for the first time and everything about this event looks awesome! There are some great hotels conveniently near the event area, THE RAILROAD ART DISTRICT. They have some great mapped rides of the area, a poker run presented by One Fist Tallahassee, two bike shows (Full Throttle Show on Saturday and Born to Ride Show on Sunday) and some great bands lined up including Jasmine Cain and The Tobacco Road Band. I am excited to see Florida, especially our Capitol, having and starting a new Bike Fest! Full Throttle is very much trying to help support this great event and see it grow in the future. We are helping a great cause on May 4th Bike Night at Quaker Steak and Lube This year. Every year we help collect Cereal for Feeding Tampa Bay and the event is called, CEREAL FOR SUMMER. They say 1 in 4 kids go

8

hungry over summer because they don’t get the free breakfast or lunches provided to them from the school. This helps under privileged children have cereal and something for breakfast. The biker community has been amazing as we have been a huge supporter for this cause for the past 5 years. I will have our trailer out at Quaker Steak and Lube Bike Night and if you can please come by and bring whatever you can to help the cause. BTW - it is also my birthday that night! So, I will imagine there will be free cake for everyone! We have all our stops figured out for our Annual Soaked and Sore Ass Poker Run This year on June 11th! We are starting where we started last year with a breakfast buffet to help fuel your tank on the long ride ahead at KICKIN WINGZ in Hudson on SR 52. This year we are traveling to Panama City Beach and ending at a bar called Cadillac Jacks. Get your rooms in Panama City Beach now as this is going to be a great ride! 300 miles with 7 stops along the way for a 7-card poker hand. We will take the best 5 cards and make either the best or worst poker hand and the top three and worst poker hands make money! You also get a t-shirt, patch, and certificate at the end of this ride, let me say that again, WHEN YOU GET TO THE END STOP YOU GET A T-SHIRT, PATCH AND CERTIFICATE. I made that in all caps as you must complete the ride to EARN the prizes at the end stop! That’s what is great about this ride, it’s not just given to you, and yes, you will get wet, and it will rain, somewhere along this route. You can’t ride 300 miles in Florida in the summer and not expect to get a little wet! Poker hands are $40 for one sheet with three poker hands on it for a single rider and $80 for a couple. Couples will both get shirts, patch, and certificate at the end stop. If you have any questions, please feel free to call. You can pre-register online on our website, click the ad, or you can register the day of, both ways are perfectly fine. Office # 727-935-4875 or Floridafullthrottle.com I would like to wish my stepdaughter Kailey, My Sister In Law Christine, and my Aunt Debi (Aunt doodoo) and my “new” Aunt Kim and my soon to be Father in Law Rocco happy birthdays in the month of May. Be safe, ride smart and don’t drink and ride! See you at the Full Throttle Expo on Memorial Day Weekend!

THREE THINGS EVERY EXPERIENCED MOTORCYCLIST SHOULD DO

1

GRAB A BUDDY AND SIGN UP FOR TRAINING.

On average, riders have less than four seconds to avoid a crash after observing a potential hazard. Reacting safely and efficiently requires practice and muscle memory. An advanced motorcycle training course is an exciting way for you to practice crash-avoidance techniques, and to enhance your overall riding experience. Sign up on your own or with your riding buddies to put your skills to the test.

2

CHECK YOUR GEAR: IS IT THE BEST PROTECTION FOR YOU?

Personal protective equipment, or gear as it is often referred to, has the ability to enhance your ride and empower you as a rider. In addition to heightening your style, DOT-compliant helmets, gloves, boots and jackets can help protect you from injuries in the event of a crash, and can also protect you from sunburn, windburn, and dehydration. Manufacturers are constantly updating gear to provide the best protection. If your riding gear is over five years old, consider newer gear that offers the latest in materials, conspicuity and personal injury protection.

3

KNOW YOUR LIMITS WHEN RIDING.

Resist the dangers of complacency by paying close attention to changes in your vision, hearing, reaction time, strength and stamina. The odds of crashing in a single vehicle crash rise after age 50, and even minor crashes may result in more serious injuries as we age.

24

Other factors, like our ability to process and eliminate alcohol or medication may also inhibit essential riding skills, like vision and judgment. All riders should discuss the potential side effects of their medication with their pharmacist or physician.

PERIODIC TRAINING CAN: • Allow you to re-evaluate and refresh your riding skills alongside a coach • Provide guidance on adapted riding techniques • Allow you to evaluate motorcycle types that best fit your abilities • Renew your confidence on the road!

QUICK TIPS FOR ALL RIDERS IMPROVE YOUR VISIBILITY Wear light and/or reflective gear to make yourself more visible to drivers. Ride in groups or pairs to further increase your visibility.

GIVE YOURSELF TIME AND SPACE TO REACT Leave at least a four-second gap between your motorcycle and other vehicles to provide adequate time and space for stopping.

REVIEW YOUR INSURANCE Make sure you and your motorcycle are adequately insured in the case of a crash.

Isle of Man TT (iomtt.com) is the world’s most challenging and dangerous motorcycle race on the planet. Literally. Held on a 37-miles of tiny European public roads reaching speeds well in excess of 200 mph, this is the pinnacle of motorsports. Google the name and see for yourself footage of bikes racing at speeds making Moto GP look like child’s play. This event certainly has been on my radar screen for years. It is on my bucket list to see it live and God willing, try it as well. Jennifer Rosanne Tinmouth (born 8 March 1978) is an English motorcycle racer and professional motorcycle stunt performer. Jenny is the fastest female to lap the Isle of Man TT course. She broke the record during her first TT in 2009, gaining a Guinness World Record for this achievement. She then re-broke the record during her second TT in 2010 taking the record to an average lap speed of 119.945mph, receiving another Guinness World record for this achievement. Jenny is also the first and only female to have competed in the British Superbike Championship. For which she was also awarded a Guinness World Record. Her list of accomplishments is astounding and so lengthy it is impossible to list them all here. To list a few, Jenny has achieved many firsts for women in the sport. She was the first female to enter and qualify to race in the British 125gp Championship, the British Supersport and Supersport Cup Championships and the British Superbike Championship. In 2012 Jenny received The Women’s International Film and Television Showcase, International Visionary Awards ‘IT Girl’ awarded in Los Angeles, for her commitment and dedication to her sport, sighting her as an inspiration to women across the spectrum of all ages around the world. She also received the most Meritorious Performance by a Solo Newcomer Award at the TT in 2009 and the Susan Jenness Trophy in both 2009 and 2010 for the Most Meritorious Performance by a Female Competitor at the TT and has also received two ‘Your Champions’ Sporting awards. In 2013 she was extremely privileged to be invited to the Women of the Year Awards in London, an extremely prestigious awards lunch celebrating the success of very extraordinary and inspirational women from all aspects of life. Jenny is proud to have had 57 podiums including 22 wins during her racing career and to have received 14 awards. In 2014

Jenny was lucky enough to join the Stunt Team for the Mission Impossible franchise and was privileged to be motorcycle rider stunt double for Rebecca Ferguson on both Mission Impossible 5 & 6. I met Jenny first time a few weeks ago. She was accompanied by her dog “Sprocket”, a Dachshund mixed with Jack Russel. Her dad always had motorcycles. She decided right from a young age she wanted to make a living out of racing motorcycles. “It was a dream and my ambition” she said timidly yet with great pride and confidence. At a young age she was attracted to bloke sports. Barbies were definitely not on her radar screen! At a young age she went to see the races and got hooked. She pursued being a motorcycle technician then volunteered her time at the closest dealership hoping to land a more permanent position to open some doors. Boy did it open doors! Jenny soon got noticed for her love and passion in the sport. “The love and passion for this sport is the great equalizer between males and females in this sport” she said. Being male or female, entitlement does not supersede merit in this sport. I wish we could say the same in other dimensions and markets! Friendly bantering is rather appreciated and not seen as harassment either. On track, she races both females and males and gender disappear when the road starts to look like a tunnel. Jenny did not get where she is without adversity. On the contrary! Her word of advice “when you face a storm, dig deep and pursue your dreams”. Having the right support matters too and Jenny is forever grateful for Greg at Manx Glass & Glazing as well as Stephen Bradley her business partner who has been there forever by her side. Jenny’s top speed? 185mph…five over mine but the difference is she held it there for more than five seconds! Jenny has never been to Florida. I asked and she would absolutely visit to teach some skills to a few select. Any taker? Guy Martin, a legendary racer of Isle of Man TT says “We are not here for a long time. We are here for a good time!” That’s in part what fuels Jenny to live her life fully.
