To scoot or not to scoot, that is the other question.

Hey all,

Okay, who out there is brave enough to ride a scooter in Korea, how many cc's does your scooter have, and have you ever wiped out?

I have a 50cc Scooter (Major ATS) and I ride it everywhere in Seoul (aside from the expressway).

I have owned a Tac, and A Super Cub in the past.

I have dropped my bike in Korea (Super Cub), and was subsequently run over by my friend who was riding behind me. I was fortunate and uninjured.

I always (now) wear gloves and a helmet and leather in weather that allows it. Seoul drivers drive fast but are pretty respectful. I used to ride daily from Olympic Park to Apgujeong at it took 20 minutes, the subway took 45.

Anyway, getting across the river can be a bit hairy but you have to know the bridges and know your traffic patterns.

I would suggest getting a scooter.

Then again some people think they have proof that I am insane.

I've had a 90cc scooter fot the last couple of months and it has been great, cept when it rains. I now hate going on the bus but with monsoon season settling in it looks like I'll be bussing it a bit more. Scooters are cheap to buy and run (300,000 + 7000 to fill up for mine). Get a good lock though as 2 of my fellow teachers have had theirs nicked recently.
