ive done a lot of reading about the sturgis bike rally, and as a Honda Goldwing Owner from the UK, it is something i really want to attend. It looks as if it is on a much greater scale than any of the bike meetings we have here.

I hope one day that i am able to attend. I will have to extend my motorbike insurance policy to cover me in the US... Not to mention find a cheap but safe way to transport my bike over there.
