Germantown, Wisconsin and Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Mike and Kay Bernier live in Germantown, Wisconsin, just north of Milwaukee, which is home of Harley Davidson, the maker of my 2003 VRod.  Mike and I took a tour of the Harley Davidson Museum in downtown Milwaukee.  Here we go!

I thought this was pretty cool that Mike was wearing a grey Navy shirt, and there was a grey Navy Harley Davidson in the museum!

I like the unusual examples of anything, and these are definitely unusual Harley Davidsons!

This is the smallest Harley Davidson ever made!

This is a prototype, a 1981 Nova with a V-4 engine.  This particular example is for show only, many pieces are wood and plastic.

This is probably a 2002 VRod, the first year of production.

Go, Mike!

Mike and Kay treated me to another wonderful meal later in the day, and the next day I took out toward my sister Nita's house in Detroit.
