I suggest you avoid the downtown area all together (congestion and construction). After you pass Blue Springs take I-470 South. It will take you to Lees Summit and turn west. Next it meets up to I-435 continue west. When you get to Antioch there is a nice BBQ called Haywoods just south of there. And a gas station. If you don't stop there continue west and after you cross I-35, I-435W turns to the north and becomes I-435 North again. Once you reach I-70 you'll also be at the racetrack with it's restaurants and shopping. There is an Arther Bryants and a Famous Daves and about 50 other places to eat there.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
