Our Titanic trip wasn't as grand as the one 2,228 passengers and crew embarked on in April 1912, leaving from Southampton, England, en route to New York City aboard a floating modern marvel.
But then, in this economy, a quick trip to the recently opened "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" at the Milwaukee Public Museum made more sense than the modern equivalent of $86,000 that first-class passengers paid on Titanic.
And our voyage ended much more pleasantly than theirs.
Before we entered the exhibit, we realized that there were a lot of bikers in the museum. Meaning no insult, but one biker is a lot for most museums I've toured, and here there were plenty of leather-clad guys and their old ladies, just as there were throughout Milwaukee, home of Harley-Davidson.
A Harley convention ? Nope. They had likely come to town to tour another museum—the Harley-Davidson Museum.
