How many times to you get to ride your bike to where it was built? I did... how F'in cool

As part of a larger ride/rally I did off another website... what a great week! But here's some pics from the York Operations Plant tour.
Its completely free and open to the public.

Seriously consider taking one if you are in the area. I'm glad I did now just in case they do end up closing this facility. Which would be ashame cause the place has some MAJOR history. If you can check it out on the last weekend of Sep for their open house. 2000% cool then!

Did you know that the CVO bike are hand assembled by 2 people, besides the FLHs which is 4 people. No assembly line. INTERESTING!

The really have a nice setup there. I just wish I would have been able to go for their open house the weekend before. Oh well. It was awesome either way!!!
