Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

That is quite a large group of motorcycles! Wonderful perspective! I bet it was noisy!

@Elaine Hancock: You win the bet. Yes the sound of the leaves, but it is sustainable only for a moment. This is an event that is looking even those, which do not otherwise interested in motorcycles.

That sounds very logical ... not many young people can buy motorcycles like these !!!

@Baldwin Vandewalle: These bikers are generally not very young. Many of them are almost middle-aged, but they feel that a motorcycle is a great vehicle in the summer.
