I can pass this guy...
I went to the show last year. Its mostly a Hardley/Chopper show...KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but a motorcycle show is offering something you probably never thought you'd see for free.
And you can see what we're talking about on billboards all over town. Cosmetic surgery to enhance a woman's breasts. Women can register to win a brand new pair if they register at the bike show.
But is the idea tacky, funny or both? We asked women and the man behind the offer.
There are 46 billboards around town advertising the upcoming bike show, but the eye catcher on the billboards is the offer to get a free breast augmentation. Need a double take? On Southwest Boulevard the billboard's are back-to-back.
"I mean how would you like to go to a motorcycle show and see more girls than guys?" asked Ralphy Roades.
Ralph Roades put up the billboards, hoping to increase his turnout. He figured a lot of women may want to look like the girls in his biker magazine.
"If there's 12,000 people and 3,000 girls, you got a 3,000-to-1 odds to win a $6,000 breast augmentation," said Roades. "You're not going to get those odds at the boats or no place."
"Yoo hoo, go women," said Gail Worth.
Worth owns Gail's Harley Davidson and thinks the offer is as funny and it is clever.
"Well that's what it's all about, it's all about trying to figure out something different, that everybody else hasn't already done," said Worth. "And Ralph's done it. He's figured out something that's never been done before."
Just to reassure the women who register for the augmentation, the plastic surgeon herself will be at the bike show. She may not know much about the curves on a motorcycle, but on a woman's body, she'll answer any question.
For passing drivers, the question was:
"Would it get you to go to the bike show?"
"No," on person said and laughed.
"Do you think it'll get more women at the bike show?"
"It could, it could, but not us personally."
"Do you think it's tacky, funny? What do you make of it?"
"Funny, I think it's funny."
The bike show is Jan. 12 and 13 at the Three Trails Expo Center near the old Bannister Mall. And no guys, you can't register on behalf of your wife or girlfriend. Only women who go can register.
