Some dudes are really into model railroads. Other guys are way into motorcycles. Of these two subcultures, guess which produces trade magazines featuring bikini-clad models straddling gleaming engines. Hint: It ain't the boxcar enthusiasts.Wide Open
magazine — the title derives from pinning the throttle, OK? — sponsors its annual exhibition of motorcycles, celebrities and swimwear called the Wide Open Bike Show
today and Sunday at 3 Trails Expo Center (8844 Hillcrest). This year, the show spotlights local bike builders from Kim Suter's KC Creations and includes a kind of juried exhibition of bikes with cash prizes for the winners. Playboy
model Debbi Davids is on hand, as is Sammy Hagar's 2008 Red Rocker Mustang, in which he is presumably unable to maintain a speed below the legally posted limit.Plus, there is a raffle in which one lucky lady will win not one but two prizes
. They're made of silicone, and they come with a surgical implantation procedure. Men are not eligible for this raffle. Advance tickets for the bike show are available at Hooters locations, or by calling 800-792-9029.
