Area motorcycle dealers see strong interest in riding
News from INFORUM:

“I’m always in the market to buy a bike,” said Berg, who was sitting astride one that was unlike any he has ever owned.

“There’s going to be a day I can’t ride anymore,” Berg said.

His words touched on what is a growing reality for many aging motorcycle enthusiasts: Physically, it simply gets more difficult to handle a two-wheeled motorcycle, especially if passengers are often in the picture.

It’s one reason why three-wheeled bikes are gaining in popularity, said Scott Gierke, general manager at Legendary Motorsports. The business sells Indian and Triumph motorcycles, and recently added other products to its lineup, including three-wheeled cruisers.

News from Kansas City Star:

The weeks of driving to car cruises and shows without the threat of snow and ice are dwindling down to single digits. The Kansas City Automotive Museum recognizes that and has put together a fun event for car enthusiasts to enjoy their vehicles.

The first-ever Cruiseum Poker Run will take place Aug. 29 at the museum, 15095 W. 116th St., in Olathe. The poker run will go from 3 to 5 p.m., Saturday and the after party is from 5 to 8 p.m. at the museum.

“It is getting toward the end of driving season,” said Luke Spence, curator at the Kansas City Automobile Museum. “Everybody wants to get out and drive their cars, so we figured we could do this and people can drive their cars and do a little benefit for the museum as well.

“It will allow them to stretch out the car legs before we get too deep into winter. If the rain is any indication, we will have lots of snow this year.”

Registration is $ 35 and includes two raffle tickets, two future tickets to the museum, two passes to the after party and a T-shirt for pre-registration at www.kansascityautomuseum.com. You can also register on the day of the event at the museum from 2 to 2:30 p.m.
