But then ADVrider members are probably, in general, serious about their hobby, thus likely to invest in the gear that goes with it.

Here in these tropical parts, registered motorcycles outnumber cars by about three to one. Bikes are generally seen as just a way to get around, with 95% of them being sub 1/8th litre scoots. But even among the more "serious motorcyclists" with bigger machines, you would be hard pushed to find a single ATGATT.

Been there and elsewhere. Definitely a culture thing. And as another pointed out this particular site is going to attract those serious about the "sport" lifestyle aspect. If I lived in Thailand I might ride a scoot minus gear also. Perhaps in the future...
