bar with a lot of bikes parked outside for me to look at, so, I better get another Rolling Rock and finish off a another Wednesday Bike Night in K.C. then get rested up for tomorrow night! Here

ThirstyErnies@gmail.com, 816-322-2779, Twitter @ThristyErnies, Facebook @ Thirsty Ernie’s Sports Bar and Grill. Thursday sure is a long day, it was long this


morning and it was long this afternoon, that’s two long. I’m glad the day is over, now the night


begins, Bike Night! I’m starting in Overland Park this evening, 7300 West 119th St. at FUEL , the biggest Bike Night in Overland Park is even bigger now with the addition of a 10,000 sq. ft. country bar, the only one in Overland Park, that’s huge. $2.00 will get you a well drink, a burnout shot, a Bud or a Dip Stick (not your brother-in-law, it’s pretzel sticks and cheese). These are the people who catered the Wide Open Bike Show in O.P. so you know we like the food here. To see and be seen on


the west side of Kansas City this is the place to be. Live music, scooters everywhere, beautiful people, cold drinks and good food, maybe Thursday isn’t so bad.

I still have enough time to get my knees in the breeze, so, a ride across town is just what the doctor ordered, east to Lee’s Summit. Having Bike Nights across town from each


other seems to be a good idea; it gives riders a chance to have a drink and a bite to eat then a good ride to another place to repeat the process. Tonight I’m going to repeat the process in Lee’s Summit, an enjoyable ride across town just south of I-50 and S.W.3rd. The Bar is at 428 S.W. Ward, Lee’s Summit, Mo. 816-525-9370. There is parking for three or four hundred bikes, you might see that when it’s not raining. Walking through the parking lot I smell the char-broiler out back, it must be loaded with steaks, chicken, tuna steaks and no telling what else. Most bikers would be in- terested to know that The Bar has free food; I’ve got to get some of that. Rich and his wife are doing Bike Night right and treating riders well, that’s a recipe for success. There’s noth- ing like a char-broiled rib eye and a couple of brews to prime a guy for a good ride home. The Bar, you’re going to like this place. T.G.I.F. (not ‘toes go in first’ like you have in


your shoes), it’s Friday and I plan to be behind bars tonight, handlebars that is. I’m going to begin the weekend at the Slow Ride Road- house, 1350 North Third St., North Lawrence, Ks. 785-749-2727, www.slow-ride-road- house.com. The Bike Night specials vary and I’m craving some of the DelCampo home- made cooking, served until midnight. There is live music every weekend and a great big out- side patio that I usually spend time on savoring the various tequilas that Slow Ride is famous for. Some of the other things they’re famous for are the friendly atmosphere that draws bike riders of all creeds, the beautiful riding in the area, weekend breakfast from 8 to 11:30, the orange and black décor including the pool ta- bles, a big paved parking lot and the terrific food. They sponsor a lot of charity events and poker runs. Tonight I think I’ll have margaritas and tacos, maybe the catfish, or the shrimp, but, first the margaritas. Did I mention the Slow Ride Roadhouse has an outstanding tequila collection? This is a really beautiful season to spend


time at the Lake of the Ozarks, riding through the fog surrounding the lake roads before the sun burns it away, cruising down Lake Road 54-29 to a place that has been here over 50 years and is still hotter than Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen at a rehab party. It’s I.M. Tirebit-
