Leave biker stereotypes in the dust. With a focus on lower cost and better fuel efficiency, newer motorcycle models are smaller and more user-friendly than ever. Gauge your own fuel efficiency at these particularly biker-friendly spots on Tuesday nights. • Hooters (6411 Barry Road, 816-584-8900). Obey speed limits while going north on Interstate 29 to get to the wings and $3.25 domestic bottles. Riders can take advantage of biker-only parking and a 10 percent discount on food and merchandise at the place where the waitresses always wear orange short shorts.• The Show (7400 East U.S. Highway 40, 816-921-8487). Located off Interstate 70 north of Kauffman Stadium, this topless bar has $4 wells, $4 pint drafts, and $2 shot specials for bikers. Get there before 7 p.m. to enter without paying a cover.• Tomfooleries Northland (8680 Northwest Prairie View Road, 816-746-8668). Cruise out to Zona Rosa all day for $2 tacos, $7 domestic pitchers, $3 Jim Beam and $4 Red Stag (a delightful infusion of black cherry and four-year-old Jim Beam endorsed by Kid Rock himself).
