G,day all. (I'm practicing my Australian) I am currently living in Colorado, USA. Its the Rocky Mountain State that you have always dreamt of riding through. I am in the process of getting a visa to OZ. I am a sonographer (ultrasound imager) so get busy making some babies for me to look at! I have looked on the web and have yet to find a ride in AU that is the equivalent of Sturgis. Surely you've heard of Sturgis. 700,000 bikers in one town for one week. Mate! You,ve gotta try it! So. Does Australia have anything like that? If not, why not? I was thinking, Alice Springs. Perfect town, perfect location. If you haven't heard of Sturgis, South Dakota, put it in your web browser. You're looking for the August motorcycle rally or Black Hills Classic, etc. Also. I ride a 2004 Yamaha Midnight Venture (runs on pure testosterone!). I understand that motorcycles have to meet certain state criteria. Can anyone fill me in? Where can I go for info on what the Government requires? It is a right hand throttle (did you know you guys were driving on the wrong side of the road down there?) The visa under which I'll be in OZ only allows me to import one vehicle, so the Honda Pilot I just bought is going to my sister and the Midnight Venture (Black Dragon) is coming with me.
