Although Hannibal had been having daily showers, Mother Nature smiled on the 66 motorcycles entered in the Lone Wolf show, and no rain fell during the show on Saturday, June 20, in downtown Hannibal.

Although Hannibal had been having daily showers, Mother Nature smiled on the 66 motorcycles entered in the Lone Wolf show, and no rain fell during the show on Saturday, June 20, in downtown Hannibal.

Bob Hartline of Melville, Ill., was a double winner in the bike show, with his 2014 Indian Chief winning the People’s Choice trophy and also the trophy as the favorite motorcycle chosen by Hannibal’s Tom and Becky (Jordan Schafer and Claire Thomas).

Hartline explained his two-tone bike was painted tropical turquoise and white, with the turquoise matched with the popular 1957 Chevrolet. He displayed a photo of the car with his bike, illustrating the color match.

The people entering bikes in the show voted for the first, second and third place winners.

Kim Spangler of Hull, Ill., won first place with his 1999 Harley Softail Springer Custom.

Second place went to Bucky McAfee’s 2006 Ultra Classic CVO. Adam Dyke’s Harley V-Rod won him the third-place trophy. Both McAfee and Dyke live in Hannibal.

Jim Dunn of Hannibal was not surprised that his 1968 British BSA, which had to be transported, won the “ugliest” award.

“I bought it in pieces,” Dunn said, “and that’s as far as I’ve gotten in building it. Hopefully next year I will be riding it.”

Brian Moss won the award for traveling the farthest to be in the show, coming from Texas.

U.S. Army veteran Tom Yarbrough, a lifetime Hannibalian, honored military veterans — including his brother Donald Yarbrough — with his display including his 1979 Jawa motorcycle and Army items.

“I did it to pay tribute to the guys who served,” he said.

Among the bikers were Quintin and Tabitha Ainsworth of Hannibal. Their purple 2012 Harley street bike was purchased three months ago. The couple said they always ride Harleys.

“We go all over the place,” Tabitha said, adding her favorite destination is Myrtle Beach. Quintin enjoys the view while riding on River Road near Campsville, Ill.

One bike attracting attention was a 2006 Ural Taurus that Michael Fuller and his 7-year-old daughter, Joli, rode from their Chicago home.

“This is a Russian copy of a BMW R-70,” Michael said. “It is one of the only bikes you can buy in the United States with a sidecar attachment.”

This was the club’s first bike show but it is expected to become an annual event.

“We will be having them every Father’s Day weekend,” said Cindy Benjamin, chairperson of the show.

“Next year we will add vendors,” she said. “We will sell shirts, jewelry” and other items.

Benjamin invited anyone interested in joining the club to attend its meetings. “We meet every other Tuesday at the American Legion,” she said. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 30. For more information call Benjamin at (573) 795-6335. Members are all ages, she added. Our oldest member is Dorothy Harper, who is 91.”
