Where to Ride Feature written for Countyline Publications and printed in Wisconsin and Illinois Biker Information Guide – second quarter 2010 Biker Bob at TheBikerSpot.com There’s a BikerSpot located in central Illinois that is fast becoming a biker attraction to visit for many bikers. Operating out of a building that has housed different biker bars in the past, Go-T’s bar (pronounced “go teez”) is a spot recommended by many local riders in the area. Go-T’s opened in March 2008 by Rob & LaDonna Kelleher, at 3201 NE Adams St, just north of downtown Peoria, Illinois. The bar has the classic biker feel the moment you ride up and park your bike on the street near the front door. With bikes coming and bikes going, there is always a certain feel of excitement upon your arrival or departure. Upon entering Go-T’s you first notice a large island bar circling the inner part of the building allowing easy access to get your favorite beverage and mingling with good friends from all sides. On one side of the bar, they have 2 – 50” flat screen TV’s to watch shows, enjoy a picture slide show displaying fun times at Go-T’s, future motorcycle events, and their food menu. Adding to the decorum, the bar has 2 dance poles at the corners of the bar used regularly by customers who get into the moment. Also, the walls and ceiling are scattered with motorcycle parts and accessories, giving you the feeling that you’re visiting a little motorcycle museum. They have Harley fenders that were custom fabricated into lamps hanging over tables complete with running lights (very cool lamps). The entertainment at Go-T’s varies on the time of the year and the night of the week. Every Thursday night they have Open Jam night with a host band “to jam it up”. If you can jam, jump in and play in the band. Starting April 6 and running thru September 30, Go-T’s kicks it with Bike Nights every Tuesday and Thursday. And their specialty night is the last Friday night of the month April thru September. This is their legendary night ride called the Unfriendly Run. You’ll need to show up to find out where the ride goes, and it’s the most fun unfriendly run you’ll ever ride! Having fun also gets you hungry, and Go-T’s has a menu more diversified than their entertainment. A full menu to satisfy everyone, and a house specialty “Hootie Sauce” one would die for. For riders, bikers, and fun seekers, Go-T’s is the place to be. It’ll grow on you! To meet more central Illinois bikers go to our Biker Links on our websites and visit BikerBob at www.bikerspot.com.
