Please note that the $63 million rehabilitation of the westbound Interstate 70 Missouri River Bridge (Blanchette Bridge) will keep the westbound bridge closed from November 2012 until Fall 2013. Motorists should consider Route 370 as an alternate. Route 370 connects from I-270 in St. Louis County to I-70 in St Peters in St Charles County. Route 364 (The Page Avenue Extension) is also a viable alternative for accessing The Family Arena. For the latest details on the project please click here.

Ok folks here we go, it’s that time of year again. The Wide Open Motorcycle Show is headed your way February 2nd and 3rd. We will again be at our home away from home, The Family Arena in St. Charles, MO. This venue always takes care of us. Be sure to remember plenty of FREE parking.
We can hardly sit still. Our Kansas City show was basically filled with registered exhibitors and vendors well before Thanksgiving, and the St. Louis show is right in the K.C. show’s tracks. You would think we would get used to the way the people of the Midwest Coast support us, but you amaze us yearly by making each show a bigger success than the previous year’s. This year is a little more special though. From the folks we talk to and the evidence we are seeing, all things point to a great upcoming riding season full of optimism and better things for riders.
As in years past we will be giving away a bike at our show. That’s right. A brand new Harley-Davidson Super Glide Custom will be leaving the show with one lucky family courtesy of our great partners St. Charles Harley-Davidson. Now I know you have to be wound up with the thought of a brand new, no purchase necessary, Big Twin scoot going home from a show with you. Well, your chance is as good as anybody’s because somebody has to win it. Every year I hear the same phrase from our winners, “I never thought I’d win”. Well, obviously they did! You can too!
Like I have said before and will repeat again, you read family in the above paragraph. As always, our shows are a family-friendly event, and as always, kids under 12 get in free. There is no need for anyone in the family to miss out on our shows when you can bring the youngins with you. Somebody has got to be in charge of cultivating the next crop of riders. Bring the kids to the show and start their motorcycle education of with the best selection of scooters you’ll see all year.
For 2013 we continue with our history of bringing celebrities to the show. This year we will be bringing you a Playboy model, in the person of Michelle Manhart. You’ll enjoy meeting this former drill instructor turned model. We also have stars from the Full Throttle Saloon and the hit truTV series of the same name on tap to visit with you. As I write this, the identities of the stars is so top secret, I’m not even sure whose coming. I am sure though, they will also have plenty of Full Throttle Saloon swag available.
All the things you have loved about our shows in the past are still on the agenda as well. Wide Open is going to pony up plenty of one off custom bikes, prizes and whatever else Ralph decides to treat you with. Our sponsors and vendors also manage to contribute quite a bit of swag so there will be plenty of giveaways. Continued from last year will be Bikini Contests and Live Music. You asked for it and we will deliver. We are never going to stop listening to the folks that made us who we are.
Come be part of the fun. You don’t want to be the person that missed out and can only hear about what everyone else experienced. Shake off the winter cold and head on down to the Wide Open Motorcycle Show and have a hot time!
