    This is a really nice event, and would be a great weekend get-away for anyone living outside of the Tampa Bay area looking for something to do during the cold winter day’s. The weather is usually nice and mild during this time, the event is always well put together and the beach is just across the bridge.

    Plenty to see and do in the area to boot. Pinellas County has the most registered Motorcycles of any county in the State of Florida, and there is always a huge turn-out for this top shelf event.

    Dont Miss it!

    By the way,


    Mia is a very sweet girl, and does not deserve those type comments from you or any other person. She is married, has children, and is very active in the local community.

    Cyril, thanks a million for posting this. I look forward to meeting all the builders there, the vendors and attendees. Steve is right, it is a good little get away for a day or two and the city is quite safe with little or no crime.

    Steve – as the owner of the AFT Customs Girls Modeling Agency I would like to applaud you for haveing Mia’s back.People don’t realise the dicipline it takes for these women to look that good.They spend a lot of time in the gym & they give up fattening & high sugar foods that most people don’t have the will power to do.They spend a lot of money on hair,make up,manicures,peticures,cosmotology ,plastic surgery,& tanning,They are in the custom body & looks business & take more pride in their appearance than most custom builders do in their bikes.
    We take it a step farther By encouraging the girls to come in in there spare time & help build the biks so that they are more knowledgeable about the industry they work in.

    By the way,

    Steve Carr,

    I just dont think women should “put it out there” like this. Maybe if she is so nice and has a husband and children. She should cover up and do her community service. Which I have no problem with. I just think the morality of the American people is going to Hell in a handbag and we just dont need more of shoved in our faces with almost complete nudity and additudes.
    She would look just as sexy if she covered up more I have just gotten tired of looking at it all just because someone else want to show it off or can make a buck off it. IT”S GETTING OLD.

    Wikked Steel,

    I look forward to seeing your work. I want to focus a little more on Florida builders in my columns for 2010.

    Your point is understood. With that being said, why did you have to make jokes about her apearence in your first post?

    Seems to me you are now trying to twist your comments in such a way as to cover up the fact that you dont have a leg to stand on. No woman, no matter what you think, deserves to hear comments like that simply because she is a Model doing her job and what she loves.

    You Sir, and your opinion are in the vast minority, you are very narrow minded, and as far as I am concerned, you have no point.

    Make sure you get your moral ideas out there more often, so the rest of the world can see a perfect example of what Bigot is.

    In case you dont know the definition of a Bigot, here it is

    a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion. ”

    Steve Carr

  12. 12 David Jan 14th, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    Steve ,

    It is my Opinion and my original comment may have been in bad taste. I dont know you but would assume that if you where a “model” ( although I would not consider showing your goods at a public event a model, it’s just gettin attention) you would not go around with only a pair of shorts on with your goods hanging partially out, Would you? Or would that be considered obscene and indecent? Or is it different because your male and Mia is female and it is “OK” for her to do it.
    Mia has my apology fo the comment but my views still stand. I beleive the morality of the nation is on the very low side and slipping. I don’t believe myself to be a Bigot but I am slightly intolerant (not utterly) of differing Creeds,Beliefs and Opinions. I would hope your not tolerant of Murders,Rapist and Child Molesters of whom a society of low morality breeds.Have you noticed all the recent cases of missing and murdered childern and young attrative women. In that respect I dont believe many of us including me are in a Vast Majority.
    Would you also include yourself in a group(the vast majority) that is not Bigot’s ( as per the definition) about Al Qaeda and terrorist and their creeds, belief and opinion’s? Just a question? Where do your moral standards lie, somewhere in between?Are you utterly intolarent of terrorism? Like I said just a twist on the underlying question?
    Thanks for setting me straight Steve……SSDD;David

  13. 13 Steve Carr Jan 15th, 2010 at 8:23 am


    Terrorism? How, what, where, when………..where did that come from? Just stop, you are only making yourself look worse. Your Analogies make no sense what so ever.

    Steve Carr

  14. 14 David Jan 15th, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    Steve ,

    I thought we where talking about Bigots as per your definiton. I am not making myself look worse You are making my case for the morality I’m talking about.
    Enough Said.

    First: Personally I believe this young lady should be proud of her body and I have no problem what’s so ever with her displaying her beauty.

    Second: Who are you to force your moral standards on anyone?

    Third: You sound like you may be a homosexual….. maybe if the models name were Todd you would be more interested????? Just an observation.

    Over & Out,


  16. 16 A$$HOLE Jan 16th, 2010 at 2:39 am

    All power to the girl for showing her assets. It is better than the 300 pounder wearing a miniskirt with a thong. Regardless the political correctness…”Nice Tits!”

  17. 17 David Jan 16th, 2010 at 10:56 pm


    I’m not trying to force anybody to do anything, Just trying to make a point about where our morality in the USA is going. No I’m not homosexual ! I like girls just as much as the next guy. I just have gotten tired of it being stuck in our faces 24/7. Yeah she has a nice body but in MY opinion more of it should be reserved for her husband and not all the rest of us. Maybe I’m getting old or something ,but like I said it’s just getting old to look at this and project it all over the public,TV, and the internet.
    Did you see Jesse James wife(Sandra Bullock) on Leno the other night ? She was fully covered and I doubt Jesse would let her out any other way!
    Do you think it’s a Biker mentality ? I dont really think so, maybe some of it is as it does show up all over. When was the last time you saw this kind of display ay a Goldwing ot BMW Show or Rally? Like I said IT’S a MORALITY problem and It’s getting worse.
    It’s like a lot of other things out there we dont seem to give a shit anymore and it’s all going away.

    Lookin forward to the bikes again and want to see a few trikes. Hows the parking this year? For bikes.

  26. 26 Jillian Jan 27th, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Mia looks great but too bad her “warm” personality doesn’t extend to the women. She snubs us like she’s better. Maybe shes just as uncomfortable with her lack of attire as everyone else is.

  27. 27 Alice Feb 2nd, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    As a former promo girl for Native Tan and Hawaiian Tropic, note that I am certainly not speaking from jealousy at all because I have” Been there, done some of that.” But we were selected to promote the products for the assets we were born with and we never paraded around bursting at the seams of either our swimsuits or our skin. I thought David’s intitial comment was funny in its sarcasm and it served to point out the ridiculous (and often dangerous) extremes that some women go to to earn a buck not from their brain or creative talents but simply from men oogling. (I was in law school while working over the summer for Native Tan.) It really is time to ratchet it all back. You know darn well that if it were not for the likelihood of being arrested, there would be women dancing on poles at every vendor’s booth. Yuck! A truly pretty woman doesn’t need to be sticking the shaved or artificially inflated parts of her body into everyone’s face in order to capture the attention from male customers, and these men are in Daytona with wife and kids, as is often the case with our aging motorcycle enthusiasts, then they are going to be making a wide berth around Mia and will never see the product she is promoting. Too much skin in public is embarrassing to the viewer and should be embarrassing to the exhibitor as well. In my promo days, I had no problem being in my bikini at the beach or pool deck, but as soon as we had to show up like that at the mall, I felt inappropriate annd way underdressed–as a young woman who was raised properly should. Let’s start saving a little for the imagination. Do we really need to see EVERYTHING you’ve got?

  28. 28 Karen Jan 18th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    If we like it or not….sex sells. I have met Mia through Chopper Dave and I didn’t get a bad impression of her. I believe she was a former playmate centerfold……so I’m she feels covered while wearing a bikini, thong or whatever else she desires to wear. If I had bood implants, I would showing them off too. She feels good about her body and there is nothing wrong with that. If you don’t like the biker enviroment , maybe you should find something else to do. Anyone guys out there, want to purchase a boob job for me….I’m game! ( : See you at this years Full Throttle Biker Build off 2011!
