There are a couple of bike events taking place in York this month.

First is the Harley Davidson York Vehicle Operations Open House the 19th-21st.  The York plant assembles the Softail, Touring, CVO and Trike motorcycles and the open house allow you to conduct a self-escorted tour of the operations.  You can see the bikes being birthed (the VIN # applied to the frame) to rolling out the door.  The plant open house is different from the Steel Toe Tour (which I have not done) in that there is no charge, it is unescorted and you do not get the swag.

I visited the open house two years ago and it was a cool event.  In addition to the walk through of the plant there were demo bikes available to ride and a bunch of the nearby dealerships had setup merchandise tents on the plant’s grounds.  I am considering going again this year. The open house has been a “Pin Stop” for HOG members in the past.

The other event is the White Rose Thunder Motorcycle Event. The event has bike shows, vendors, stunt teams, motorcycle racing, a bike night, concerts, swap meet and many other activities.  I have never attended this event, if you are interested take a look at the website.
