Vehicle Operations in York PA

Hi all. My "Chapel" had a ride to the York PA manufacturing plant on Thursday. Went with one of the groups not using the PA Turnpike. About 120 Back Road Miles through PA. That was just from the dealership. Think I did about 270 Miles Total. Unfortunately, No Cameras and Phones allowed inside the factory. I was Averaging around 65 MPGs!!! Had a close one on Rt. 30E and 222N. We were cutting over to the ramp to get onto 222N. Saw a truck in my 5 O'clock position. Turned my head to keep checking his position. When I cut over, The group ahead of me slowed down. Almost took out one rider. Fortunately I have about 30k Miles riding experience. And Quick reflexes. I avoided. But had to slow down Quick to keep from overshooting the group. One of those Brake(F&R) and Downshift Slowdowns. Happened so fast the Bucks County HOG rider behind me didn't notice. Guess he was watching traffic.


Since I changed the Oil and Filter on Sept 15. After work. Since last Friday, I have put almost 800 Miles on my Street. Side note: The Bosch D3300 seems to be working just fine. No leaks. no Oil PSI lights. Cant wait until the 5k is up. So I can see How well the filter works. So far the oil still looks new.

Another view of the plant. It was very crowded there. My group had to park in "Outfield" near RT. 30.

I toured the York plant a number of years back.
Now, I'd like to head to the Kansas one for a tour, since that's where my 750 was built!

York Pa., and Kansas City?
NO......Harleys are made in Milwaukee!

Next people will say they are made in Tokyo. or Korea, or India.

Please talk to a few older Harley riders, they will tell you all you need to know

If you go to Harley's website you'll see the different locations they offer factory tours. Here's an example for the Kansas City plant where our XG's are made

Milwaukee is Harley Davidson Headquarters.


The Export Street models are assembled in India. As well as some of the parts on the US models. I know. I have replaced my lockset due to a gas cap drop.

I have a hard time believing that.
I've been told for years that HD was an American company.
I was given a large collection of old Easyriders magazines, and they stress that HDs are a domestic product from America's heartland.

Now you are telling me that Harley's are made in India.
That seems like heresy and somewhat like anti-American rhetoric.

That would be like saying Subarus are made here in this country.
I know that people say all kinds of things to sell their products, but lying to consumers will come back to bite them.

As for me, I will continue to believe in all that is good about America and Harley Davidson.

LOL man you are a trip... Racist much? Again your posts are discriminatory and borderline hateful.. Subaru is made in this country, there is a huge plant in Indiana for assembly I think in Lafayette somewhere... Harley is an American company, that's not an issue... Do some research before you blab that troll mouth of yours... Hearsay is what 2 people say that cannot be established fully... and Anti American rhetoric is what is coming out of your mouth... Be tolerant of others... And HD is all about $$$$
