10th Annual B.A.C.A. Bike Show - Kansas City, Missouri

Written by  June 1, 2012

The weather was perfect, the parking lot was full of bikes, and Brooke and her Bombshells were busy washing motorcycles in their bikinis when Stripe and I pulled into the parking lot at Harley’s & Horses Grill, Stage & Saloon. The date was Saturday, May 5, 2012, and the event was the annual Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) Ride-In Bike Show, which is always a huge event. 

 The entire parking lot was busy, as bikes lined up for the ride-in bike show, and there were several vendors in attendance as well. Our friends with the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies® were there signing people up for this year’s ride, and there was also a 50/50 drawing, door prizes, great food, and Charlie and another bartender were busy serving beer in the parking lot. Throw in three great bands, such as Seven Year Itch, Voodoo Soul & Without Warning, and what more could a biker ask for?

The highpoint of the day; however, was the bike show awards presentation. All the bike show winners received a nice trophy, and our very own Cycle Connections team member Danny Webb won the Domestic Mild category with his beautiful 2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide, which just so happened to be featured on the cover of our May 2012 issue with cover model Shaunta’.

Jeff and the entire Harley’s & Horses staff were excellent hosts as usual, and everyone had a great time. Their outdoor venue is awesome, and it’s nice to see the bands playing outside, which is a sure sign that summer is finally here!
