It may be a logistical nightmare - suitable machine, proper insurance, licensing acceptable to sanctioning body, etc., but it could be a reasonable way for someone to get a chance to ride one these tracks.
If you come to Barber, you'll at least have access to a Norton to ride around the facility :wink:
Many years ago, two of us did a month long trip around Canada and Alaska and we bought bikes in Seattle. We had an epic trip and crated and shipped our bikes back to Ireland, where we then sold them. Because bikes were so cheap in the States and because of the exchange rate at the time, we didn't lose money, even after paying shipping and import taxes. I doubt if we would be able to do the same now!
