The Invasion Has Begun

Actually, it began on Wednesday. For those of you who think that Wisconsin is just all beer and cheese, I have news for you. Milwaukee once was home to many fine breweries, most sadly gone now, but we do still have the international headquarters of Harley Davidson. Every five years they throw a huge anniversary party and the city is set upon by thousands upon thousands of Harley riders. It is an amazing sight to walk down the street and see more motorcycles on the road than cars. It is also an amazing sound. Even here, at my desk, in a huge concrete building, I can hear the roar of those bikes loud and clear. Had I been smart, I would have gotten out of the city for the long weekend and rented out my home to some nice HOG members. But, as is often the case, I'm too smart too late.
