Fascination of Motorcycles

Imagine riding a hundred miles per hour. The wind in your hair, freedom of the open road stretching out in front of you, and a loud rumble below you.

A large amount of Harley and cruiser riders participate in the Sturgis bike rally. Bringing any other type of cycle to this event would probably be dangerous to your health, which is how devoted some are to the breed of their motorcycle.
