Panhead and Red’s Ride and Roll By John Thomas This was a fun and well organized ride that Panhead and Red put together. Panhead is a Kidney cancer survivor as is Butch of Butch’s in Cahokia. The games at each stop and the visual scavenger hunt added to the day. We should point out that this was their second Annual Ride and more than doubled the participation from the first event. Last year the ride had 18 bikes. This year there was 47 bikes and 4 cars that brought 94 people together. Special thanks to Butch and Steve Merz of Merz’ on Main in Columbia for all the free food at the end. With the sup- port of TOPSHOOTERS Bar & Grill, Main Street Bar, LISA’S Market Street Grill, FOUNTAIN INN, Butch’s and everyone involved, Panhead was able to present a check for over $1500 to the National Kidney Foundation of St. Louis. Be sure to watch for this event next year. We will keep you posted… Thunder Roads Magazine 26 Thunder Roads Magazine 27
