LAS VEGAS -- There's a brand new attraction coming to the Las Vegas Strip and it's not a hotel or observation wheel, but it's sure to get motorcycle enthusiasts excited.
Construction crews are currently working on the new 50,000-square-foot Harley-Davidson store on the south end of Las Vegas Boulevard, not far from the iconic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. The store is expected to open by Oct. 1, 2014.
"It's a great location. It's easy to get in and out of and that was one of our concerns. We like being on the Strip, but it couldn't have been in the center because of the traffic and the people. It's too hard to move your bikes in and to-and-from," said Tim Cashman, the co-owner.
The store will be equipped with motorcycle simulators, a course for test rides, a merchandise area, a parts department and a showroom full of hogs.
