We passed a “Harley-Davidson” highway street sign that was the size of one of the overhead signs on 95. We knew it was more than a dealership. So glad we did a bit of research. We found out it was the Vehicle Operations Division of Harley Davidson, basically, where the bikes are produced.
The “steel toe tour” starts off with a 10 minute movie about the history of Harley Davidson. That in itself was so interesting. Makes you want to buy one right there and then 🙂 Our tour guide was super entertaining. A frustrated comedian who does stand up while guiding us through this super huge, super awesome facility.
It is a 2 hour tour. They bring you through the entire factory (except painting booth) to show how the bikes are assembled from start to finish. By the time we left, 16 bikes were assembled and ready to ship out to a dealership.You don’t need to own a Harley to take this tour. It is worth the visit.
