HANNIBAL, Mo. -- A motorcycle is more than just a bike. Some are trikes, some are cruisers, and some are baggers.

A variety of bikes will be showcased at the third annual Lone Wolf Bike Show on Saturday at the Y Men's Pavilion on Hill Sreet. Registration proceeds from the show will be donated by the Lone Wolf No Club to various local organizations, including AVENUES and Douglass Community Services, at the end of the year.

"There's not many major bike shows in the area, so we hope this becomes a destination (for motorcycle enthusiasts)," bike show committee member Mark Kilby said. "We enjoy doing this, and we've tried to base it off the Loafers car show."

Around 60 motorcycles will be featured in the show, and specialty trophies will be awarded for people's choice, Tom and Becky's choice, the farthest traveled and ugliest bike. First-, second- and third-place trophies will be given out to bikes in trike, custom, bagger, cruiser and sport bike classes.

The show is open to the public and free to spectators. If anyone wants to enter a bike, though, the cost is $15, and people have between 8 and 10 a.m. Saturday to register.

Vendors will be selling merchandise, and there will be a 50/50 raffle drawing throughout the day.

"The show grows every year, and it supports a good cause," Kilby said. "People who come out to the show can meet new people and enjoy Hannibal's downtown district. There's a lot of great eateries and shops on Main Street to check out while at the show."

The Lone Wolf No Club is a motorcycle group and civic organization -- rather than a club with dues or officers -- that raises money for local organizations through various fundraisers, Kilby explained.

The group of riders is primarily based in Hannibal but benefits organizations outside of the city, too. One of its biggest annual fundraising events is the Lone Wolf No Club Shiloh fish fry, which raises money for Shiloh Christian Children's Ranch in Clarence, Mo.
