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
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~
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! :)ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun trip!ReplyDelete
Whoa... very cool day trip!ReplyDelete
Is Mr. Ken getting some new wheels?
Enjoy your day!!
What a neat place to see! I am sure Mr. Ken would love to walk out with one of those at the end of the tour! Enjoy your day!ReplyDelete
What a very interesting place to visit! I had no idea. I learn so much from visiting blogs. Thanks and enjoy the rest of the week!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
It is a nice & clear place. I want to see Harley plant soon.ReplyDelete
