Perhaps you have a pal who has a lot of disposable income and the toys to prove it, and you're lucky enough to enjoy an invitation to a luxurious summer home or a day tearing around in a Porsche.
Well, imagine if a friend invited you on a trip halfway around the world to ride a selection of bikes around a private racetrack and to see a multi-billion-dollar manufacturing facility.
Here at MO, we're fortunate to be buddies with Kawasaki, a player on the world's stage to an extent even us brilliant MOrons couldn't even fathom before seeing it all. To prove it, Big K jetted us across the globe to its home turf in Japan, and we were astounded at the scale of what we saw.
I've been fortunate to have seen the production facilities of a couple OEMs (Ducati and Aprilia), and getting an inside look at where motorcycles are built is a treat for moto-heads. But a tour of Kawasaki is different. Not only did we see hundreds of bikes in the midst of production, we also got to see the construction of 180-mph bullet trains and 100,000-horsepower ship engines! Take that, Honda and Harley!
