Reflections

Reflected in Chrome, Harley-Davidson Factory, Kansas City

Kansas City is home to a Harley-Davidson factory, where they make the Sportster, Dyna, and V-Rod. ... Okay, so I didn't know what those were, but now I do.

Nearly every day of the week, you can take a tour of the Harley-Davidson factory floor. Being female, and not exactly interested in motorcycles, I have to say the tour was actually quite interesting!

Snazzy picture. Is that you in the reflection holding a camera?

The name on the side of the whatzis is a little over the top. Sequential Port Induction sounds like one of the systems Scotty ran on the Enterprise. It makes me think of those little fake exhaust ports of the front fenders of many Buicks, which are officially called Cruise-o-Line Vent-o-Ports. Or at least they were when the design was created in the 50s.

I wouldn't get on a motorcycle to save my life. Literally. As a disability lawyer, I've seen a few too many people mangled on these things.

Great picture with your reflection! Good to see you last night... btw, how do you pronounce your name? HAHAHA!

Um...Sequential Port Injection simply identifies that the bike is fuel injected, rather than carbureted. This is an FLHX, a Harley-Davidson Touring bike, aka Street Glide.

Kansas City is a good place for the Harley enthusiasts. I have been looking forward to thatplace for a long time. But unfortunateiy, I haven't the chance. I meet many friends on a site called bikerkiss. They tell me many interesting things about that place. If u are like me, welcome to join us.

Very nice shot. Cropped beautifully. I've found unexpected pleasures, like your tour of the factory, to be more memorable and enjoyable than some planned pleasures.

I think "anonymous" is an engineer. We prefer making up what we think things are, especially how MAGIC makes things happen.
