Sturgis Motorcycle Rally - August 3-9, 2009

Each year, hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists head toward, what many feel, is the motorcycling mecca of the world, Sturgis, and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota takes place this year August 3-9.

Check out my article on this great motorcycle rally. See if you can see me waving in the picture when I attended the 1993 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. I really need to go back at least one more time.

BMW Recalls 2007-2009 R1200RT Motorcycles for Brake Leak

BMW is recalling certain 2007-2009 R1200RT motorcycles.

Due to routing and assembly tolerances of the front brake lines, it is possible for the lines to be under strain. In combination with vibration during riding, the brake lines could develop a leak. The level of fluid in the front brake fluid reservoir could drop rendering the front brakes inoperative.

The number of units affected has not been announced.
