Hitting the Road

Today we are stepping back to the first week of July when Mr. Ken was on vacation. Mr. Ken fancies himself as a Harley dude so we went to the Harley Davidson Plant here in Kansas City. The facility is a 358,000 feet showroom, giftshop and factory. Visitors to the plant can go through the showroom and take a FREE tour. We will start with the showroom.
Here is my Harley dude-yes you
are allowed to sit on the bikes in
the showroom. Look at that smile
on his face!!!
This is their latest model. The
VRSC V-ROD--the powertrain
is liquid cooled.
Above and the next two pictures show
several of the areas that visitors will
see on the tour. Painting and laser
cutting are a couple of them. There
is also frame bending and welding
too.
Now we are off to our scheduled tour.
We get to see a movie first! No not
cartoons. We also get a headset and
fancy goggles to wear. They are returned
and cleaned at the end of the tour.
Sorry no cameras allowed on the plant
floor. Hope you enjoyed your visit!
~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Fun! I haven't been to the Harley plant since it opened. I was still working for Kit Bond back then and it was a huge coup for the Northland and Kansas City! Ken looked like he was in hog heaven! :)

  5. Hi, where we live, you can rent a Harley for a day, which we did once. It was a treat, however when we spent the night in a motel (it was an anniversary celebration), we worried all night about that shiny, new, $20,000 bike sitting outside. We were afraid it might get vandalized. Fortunately, it did not.
