The plant parking lot was full.

The tour starts with a display of previous HD models...

right up to models of today.

The plant is clean and well organized.

Parts are in key locations so that each station gets the part it needs when it's needed.

Bikes move along by being suspended from a conveyor.

Sometimes the conveyor moves the bike high overhead to the next assembly station.

Another conveyor shot.

When the conveyor passes over a walkway, it is shielded to protect people below.

Employees dress casual and really seem to be enjoying their work.

Completed bikes are started and ridden out of the facility for a lap on the test track.
