Hog Wild

We  had a day out to Milwaukee… Finally went to the Harley Davison Museum. 

I static test rode a Fat Boy: comfy saddle and fairly slick operation. The wind-blown effect was an (appropriately orange) fan. 

Early grey fellows commenced a yearly procession of models. Basically bicycles with engines in ’em! 

 A wall of engines: flathead, knuckle, pan, evo… Even the BMW-like flat twin for desert warfare. The rorting sounds could be conjured at the press on an interaction screen. 

One view was a complete motorcycle…

Another its component parts…

Beautiful examples of all golden age bikes.

And an illuminated wall of tanks of the ages. 

A worthwhile destination when visiting Wisconsins Brew City.
