Here's a Sampling of the
Bike Show Issue's Features:

Jesse Roades' Red Hustler
It’s a pretty normal occurrence for bikers to use the cold winter months to tear down their beloved beasts and have them rebuilt with custom modifications or new paint schemes, every couple of years. Now if your name is Jesse Roades, that means you do this just about every winter! We like to call it Jesse’s annual color change. Make no mistake, color may be the reason for the project but it definitely isn’t the only thing he changes! Jesse’s 2013 RoadKing has beamed with just about every option on the primary color wheel. . . . Page 6

Wide Open's New Year Motorcycle
Just as surely as January First signals a New Year, Wide Open Motorcycle Magazine will build another custom motorcycle for another year.. . .Page 10

Big Dave Hansen's David Mann Art Bike
In the early 1990's I came up with a concept for a Chopper. I took the concept to my best friend, David Mann. After brainstorming for an entire evening at his home near Ventura we came up with an idea...a bike that told the story of Biker's rights as we saw them in 1990. . . .16

Shawnee Cycle Plaza's Victory Magnum MC
Quick—What pops into your head when you think “Magnum”?
Thomas Magnum, Private Investigator?
Dirty Harry’s .44 caliber hand gun?
1.5 Litres of Champagne?
A Trojan brand condom?
A Malaysian corporation known principally as a leader in gaming?
A Victory motorcycle?. . .Page 20

Wide Open's Bike Show
There’s no doubt Ralph has gone all out this year. First off, he’s expecting to fill the 72,000 sq. ft. Expo Center with more vendors than ever and all the signs are pointing toward a new record- breaking year, topping the mark of three hundred bikes from last year. With 30 classes and 90 trophies everyone has a chance to stand up and be counted. . . Page 25

Gateway H-d Joins Gail's H-D Family
Let’s set the scene. The date was September 1999. Gail is unlocking the doors to Gail’s Harley-Davidson. This is the first day Gail’s Harley-Davidson is open for business. As the lights are turned on, as each Harley is fired up and moved about, as each customer is welcomed in by her signature smile and laughter, Gail’s thinking; “This is IT. I’ve done it. I’m here.” . . . .Page 32

Outlaw Country Music
The Honky Tonk’s, with their loud music, cold beer and hot pool tables are where Outlaw Country music has come to call home. They’re a damn good place to just hang out, drown all them ol’ worn out memories, or maybe make some new ones with that pretty little lady who just put a nickel in the juke box and says, “I need a Cowboy tonight’’. ...Page 38
