Thank You
JackPotJoe, thank you for the Harley information. I had done a search and didn't find a local dealership, so am just THRILLED to report back to DH that he will be able to check out bikes in the MidWest! Plus, he can say he got to do ONE thing he enjoys on the trip. I have to comment that everyone is so nice and helpful, I just have to lament out loud more often to get support! Thank You!

My Wins

Yup

Moline, IL (MLI)
1200 River Drive
Centre Station
Moline, IL 61265

Or

Davenport, IA (DVP)
304 West River Drive
Davenport, IA 52801

Can always check with the hotel and see if their airport shuttle runs down to the Amtrak station

I believe that the closest Amtrack is in Galesburg Il I am not sure how far it is from here maybe 45 minutes or so.

Those two addresses are bus stations. I wonder if Amtrak busses people to the two stations from Galesburg.
