After our Madison visit, capital of the state of Wisconsin, we have followed our coast to coast travel in the United States and after traveling about 130 kilometers, we have reached Milwaukee.
With its 600,000 inhabitants, and located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, it is not the capital, but it is the largest city in Wisconsin.
But, without a doubt Milwaukee is known as the headquarters of the legendary motorcycle brandHarley davidson. In fact, as soon as we arrive in Milwaukee we have headed directly to visit the harley davidson museum.
It has been fantastic, speechless. We have been visiting the museum for more than two hours and an attached exhibition. It coincided that there was also a large concentration of bikers.
Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee
It really puts goosebumps (goosebumps, as Johan Cruyff would say) to see so many bikers, with their Harleys, their sounds, and all with differentiated bikes. A whole culture, a whole world !!!
From the harley davidson museum we have gone to meet the downtown from the city and to eat in a Mexican restaurant called Jalisco.
Then we went to visit the first of the great lakes, the Lake Michigan Huge, like a sea, in it there are beaches and ports are its boats, and its great dimension is a sign that the other shore is not visible.

We have had a good time on the beaches, docks, marinas and parks that surround Lake Michigan, where there was a lot of entertainment to coincide with a Saturday. Many restaurants with outdoor terraces and many seagulls accompanied us during this tour.

As a reflection of the day, say that Harley & Davidson brand I was always surprised because it is a company that has made each motorcycle different, since each client can customize it to their liking.
Years ago I read that the subliminal message of advertising and marketing of the Harley & Davidson brand was to convey to the public the idea that they did not sell motorcycles, that they sold dreams. At least I understood it that way. And it seemed really cool. Not because of the idea itself, which is, but because it is true.
