A special motorcycle made by Harley-Davidson Inc. — long a symbol of Americana and a source of American pride — is traveling the country to “find out where the Constitution lives, how it works and how it unites us as a nation.”
The rider is Peter Sagal, star of National Public Radio’s popular “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” program. Sagal is currently hosting a four-part PBS series “Constitution USA,” riding around the country on a customized red, white and blue Harley-Davidson and interviewing people as he tells stories about contemporary constitutional debates.
I wasn’t able to catch Wednesday night’s premiere, but my colleague Stacy Vogel Davis watched it and said Sagal’s hog was featured prominently on the show and he ended the episode touting his American-made bike and its patriotic paint job.
