The Little RV Visits the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Rob is nuts, crazy over the moon nuts, for motorcycles. As it happens the Harley Davidson museum is in Milwaukee not far from our campground so we decided to check it out. 
The museum starts at the beginning of the creation of the Harley Davidson motorcycle. There were exhibits including company stocks.


This particular motorcycle was built in the very early 1900's and is the oldest Harley Davidson in the world. 

There were hundreds of motorcycles dating back to 1903 and moving forward to the present. 



 In 1932 they came out with a Servi-Car used for deliveries. They had several of these in the museum. 

There were police motorcycles and the uniforms worn while riding them.


Harleys were used in World War II by the Army and the Navy. 

 We trooped around the exhibits for as long as we could then took a break and when to the souvenir shop for a new ball cap and T-shirt for Rob. 

If you're ever in the area and you're a motorcycle enthusiast we'd recommend a visit.

  1. My son has a Harley and headed off to Sturgis. Yes, he has been there before even though it is quite a ways away from where we live in Texas.

    1. Rob would have loved to go to Sturgis but that ship sailed long ago. Moral of the story, don't wait!
