    So how was the tour? I plan on taking the tour the next time I'm out there. I'm from the Seattle area and travel to Kansas at least once a year. Have a safe flight.

    Wayne, you're going to have trouble finding it in Kansas, it's in Missouri!

    Where is the plant at? I'm from SE Kansas, and I've been to KC many times, but never really thought about a tour at the plant. When do they give the tours?

    I'd like to hear about the tour also. What did you see? How much time did they give you? Did you get any free time there?

    I know it's close to the airport, drove right by it and didn't even notice. Now I know and plan on stopping by next time I go through there.

    I'd like to hear more about it too. I'm about 200 miles away and that will be a good trip this year. I think I'll go.

    Tour was GREAT. From the time it started till it was over was about a hour. You go into a room and watch a short film on HD then they wall you through the production floor telling you about the processes and bike. They were steadly putting bikes out. The KC (Kansas City) plant is just a few miles from the airport (KCI). You have as much time as you want to walk around the gift shop. I was really surprised at the amount of people that were there going on tours. We went on the 10:00 tour and I was talking to some people that was going on the 9:30 tour and they were from Atlanta GA. I thought that was kind of cool. It is something well worth spending the time to do. It doesn't cost you a thing. they really use a lot of high tech equipment. If you like manufacturing process you will really enjoy it.
