Well so here I am: finding a bike here. And after spending some time on bikehk.com and ibike.hk, I am a little bit disappointed by what's on offer. I was sort of hoping there'll be more 600cc here in HK, but it's sport or SM here.

Clearly HK is a "Day-trip" land (unless I've missed the website that explains how I can go into China from HK by rode on a HK registered bike).

I'm not keen on sticking to tarmac all the time, I'm not a really good off-roader but I've heard of some nice tracks in the NT.

So what do you guys have/recommend? I've seen quite a few dual-sport here, but all supermotarded

Cheers,

Thomas
Heard there's still a grey Super Tenere over at the Yamaha showroom?
But yea due to the urbanization, you probably find 95% of the bikes here as asphalt oriented...
