Default Riding a Sportster in South Korea

Hello ,
I am staying in Korea since about 1 year.

I was riding a 883XL in France last year and after riding a Hyosung 250 in Korea for a while, I am looking for a used sportster 883 or 1200 .... and also for a welcoming Harley club.

Please advise !
Chris

Chris, Well I would say 7 moths too late that in Taegero there's plenty of bike shops where you could buy a sporty. Don't see many Koreans selling their bikes.

As for clubs, there's quite a few around. Korean riding clubs; Black Hole, Lycoans, Riders Korea... American riding clubs Yongsan Road dragons (Seoul) and lots of independants just kicking around having a good time.

A few traditional MC's here like Boozefighters MC, American Steel MC and Rough Riders MC but pretty much anybody can ride with them but we are very selective in our membership which takes a long time to go through the process to hang around and prospect (which we don't take lightly).

Well, he didn't just join the forum. He's been on here for almost 3 years. I'm 7 months late in responding to his inquiry.

And no Korean food isn't spicy. Not to me anyways... My wife's Thai and korean food isn't shit. But I'm the type of dumbass pretty much immune to CS tear gas. I get the sniffles and eyes water a little but nothing major.
