No matter what they have, people will find a way to race.
I knew there's small road racing going on in Korea, but I didn't know about this.
Very amazing.

Say it "Babo".
:lol:

Maybe they just can't afford it.
Motorcycle gears are very, very expensive in Korea.
When I was in Korea, for the first 11 years all I had was a(real cheap) helmet.
No wonder I burned my leg twice from exhaust...
:roll:

which is why you see tons of squids :p

You can buy a decents bike for like 300-400$ (probably stolen though) but not gear (The helmets are HUGE, but then maybe I just have a tiny head). Although police almost never pull you over on a motorcycle so you don't need a license, registration or helmet.

I wish I had a digital camera. Yesterday I saw three highschool boys riding 3-up on an RC-51.

I've been out of the country for about 5 years, so you probably are right.
But when I was there, if you don't wear helmet you did get pull over.
That's how most of my police chases started.

Maybe it's different being a foreigner and knowing next to no Korean.

I know a lot of foreigners that bought bikes here and never get licensed. You almost always get waved through police checks. If they say anything, repeating "Mu-lai-yo" (I don't know) solves your problems :)

When I rented motorcycles, they never asked for a license or anything and then they looked surprised when I asked for a helmet (they always gave me these 3 dollar, made in China, plastic, open face helmets with styrofoam inside and no padding :shock: )

But you're right about the helmets. Speeding on sidewalks is OK but whenever there's a police car, you see all the teenagers on sportbikes with no helmet pulling U-turns.

I do like seeing the squid/prostitute coffee girls ride around on their scooters in skimpy outfits :D .

You've obviously never seen "Full Metal Jacket" it's a Vietnam film made by Stanley Kubrick...that scene is where the famous line "me love you long time" came from.

...I can see where it could be offensive when taken out of context, or any way for that matter. I think he posted it because the prostitute rides up on a scooter with her pimp.




...what do you get for $5? "aneeting you woah"
