Chain Cutting At Harley-Davidson Museum

So, it happened last Saturday. The new Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley opened with a ribbon cutting, the ribbon being a chain. . .“Inside is a treasure chest. If you like Harleys you’re going to go absolutely nuts,” Harley-Davidson founder’s grandson Willie Davidson said. “It’s for riders, anybody interested in our brand. It belongs in Milwaukee. It’s here and we’re just thrilled.” Friends who were there tell me that the “Engine Room” is one of the most interesting parts of the trip through the company’s 105-year history. You stand front of all the engine models Harley ever produced. You push a button corresponding to the engine of your choice. It starts (all the time), vibrations included. Harley-Davidson expects more than 300,000 visitors this year from all around the world and the Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett is very excited to see his city in the process of rejuvenating itself.

    ……. nah, most likely a “foreign national” here illegally working for $5.25 an hour! I can’t say that can I? That would be insensitive of me, would it not? Oh well!

    After seeing the end of the quarter losses for HD I would suggest next time they save the expensive chain and cut their costs and use some cheap ass ribbon just like everyone else.
