Harley Davison, August 17, 2014

One and one half hours at Harley Davison Assembly plant in Kansas City, Holly and I take a tour, and Sarah tries and buys this bike. I really need to decrease her allowance, the motor home is gaining a lot of weight. Fortunately for me, she has to assemble the bike her self, and the kit comes with a screw driver.
I fear this part of the trip is becoming a turning point and we are going to be seeing more large cities. I hate the cities, there are a lot of lose nuts behind the wheel. I had one fellow who must have thought his year tag on his license plate was lose. As at a read light, he bumped his car strategically against our bike rack so as to let us know he was there, and to apply pressure to the front of his car thus more firmly attaching his year tag to his license plate. Shortly thereafter, he waved and took off. I guess his venture must have worked out, as he seemed quite excited as he sped off.
After seeing Harley, we decided to follow the GPS to Border Bookstore in Overland Park Kansas. The GPS took us on a very interesting journey doing many circles before dropping us the Gum Springs trail to Santa FE. (I think this is the trail all the teens took when they went west.) We have found the best way to tour an area, is to not get directions, but to program a destination into the GPS and go. We saw most of the Kansas and Missouri suburbs before getting to our destinations. It was an interesting 200 mile trek to a store 20 miles away, but hey! we did come here tour.
