Im looking to get a bike thats mosty used for a 4km commute to work but can als be used to take trips out to the countryside and can load a passenger in the back.

Looking at a Daystar 125cc but i think this might be too weak. Looking for more of a standard/cruiser model rather than a crotch rocket. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Hey,

You guys and gals who ride bikes in Korea, did you have a bike license back home and just transfer it to a Korean one?

I'm wondering about the rules. I have a full car driving license (Irish) but no bike license. Is there any way that I can drive a small moped in Korea?

Or do I need a full bike license before I can ride anything in Korea?

As far as I know unless there's been changes lately: international driver's licence will allow you to ride sub 125cc. Over 125cc will need a motorcycle licence.

The answer is probably in the previous 180 pages somewhere, but pardon me for asking anyway:

Anyway to get motorcycle insurance with an English speaking agent in Seoul. Or is it just best done online with a Korean friends help. My Korean is actually decent (level 3 TOPIK) but not up to buying insurance. I have a Daerim Forte 125.

Thanks,

(I dont know if you still need advice as this is two weeks old...).

Go onto the FB group 'ROK riders in korea'. Youll be able to get a number. Some companies have English speakers (mine did) but Im sure your Korean will be good enough.

The first year I got insurance, I did it through a bike shop. Im pretty sure you can still do that - thats another option.

I know motorcycles can't ride on the major expressways out of town.
What about the riverside expressways inside Seoul?
I know motorcycle can cross the bridges (or else they would be forever bound to one half of Seoul), what about the expressways running along the river between the bridges.
I just checked the directions to a job I am interested in, and I would have to ride the expressway from the Hapjeong Station area to the Yongsan area, and then cross the river. Or I could cross the river at the Hapjeong area over to Dangsan, and then ride the riverside expressway along Yeoedo to the Noryangjin area.
Thanks for any info on riding on the riverside expressways.

Does anyone know where there's a good bike gear shop in Busan? I need a decent jacket and gloves. I heard someone say there's a really big one somewhere but can't remember where they said it is.
