But the Motorcycle Industry report indicates that motorcycle sales have been on the grow in the UK in the past year, and that motorcycle tourism has been similarly flourishing.
This blog has previously suggested that motorcycle riders in the eastern United States might be interested in utilizing professional motorcycle shipping to send their bikes on ahead to locales where riding is safe and pleasant for a larger portion of the year.
