Time to go hog wild. Obsessive Harley-Davidson fans — and really, are there any other kind? — can head to Wauwatosa and take a tour of the motorcycle company's 450,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing plant. It is here that engines for Sportster and Buell bikes are made, as well as replacement parts for the Screamin' Eagle. (Harley has three more factories open to the public in America. One in Tomahawk, Wis., which builds sidecars and windshields; another in York, Pa., which makes the Touring models; and one in Kansas City, Mo., at which guests can see an entire V-Rod bike assembled.) We're guessing you'll have twice the street cred walking out as you did walking in. Admission: free
