The competition is expected to be fierce at the 17th annual Top Gun motorcycle skills competition being held tomorrow at Ted's Motorcycle World on Humbert Road in Godfrey. The event is sponsored by the local chapter of ABATE; A Brotherhood Aimed Toward Education, and gets started with sign up at 11am.
The competition runs from 12:00pm - 3:00pm. ABATE member Ed Show says if you have what it takes, you can join the competition and show off your maneuvering skills and riding techniques.
