At 11:00 I left for S&S Motors, the company that built their reputation of after-market parts for Harley-Davidson. The tour would begin at 1:00 so I would have time after the 50 mile ride for a little lunch before the tour.
Their motors are made to slip into the HD frames with no adjustments needed. They are making a number of things for the Indian Motorcycles like the Flat Track Racing bikes under the name of Indian and have won many events. I got my hand slapped for trying to take a picture of the bikes being assembled....NO PICTURES!
The museum did allow pictures!

They were frequently at the Salt Flats setting records with the various types of motorcycles.
All the above held land speed records. It was a 1 hour tour and very interesting.
We returned to La Crosse after a spirited ride in time for the evening banquet. Raffle tickets were drawn and the motorcycle prize winner was a woman and avid rider that everyone knew. Great ending to the Rally.
Now for the packing and after breakfast I am off in the direction of Denver to pick Pattie up at the airport on Monday. The weather looks promising to cross the plains and I have some flexibility with the scheduling so I will make a number of stops. Must get packing.
