I have a US import Goldwing, the speedo reads faster than i'm actual travelling.
I need to know is a US mile the same as a UK mile.... I always thought it was ?

Yes there are the same.  Both the UK and modern US use the International definition for the mile, which is 5,280 international feet. Which is about 1.609 kilometers.

The speed read by speedometers are dependent on many factors, such as tire size. Your speedometer may not have been adjusted correctly when it was installed.
