I lived in Korea for 2 years @ the turn of the century (sounds cool to say that). Have always had bikes, so not a newbie-thought I was pretty good on one. I rode a daelim vr-125 the whole time I was there. Trained myself to ride in the traffic by chasing delivery guys-talk about an eye-openner!!! I had a steep learning curve for sure coming from a small town in canada!!!
lights are a general guide: yellow means go faster, red means slow and look both ways, green means nothing.
traffic is an obstacle to get around-like texture to the road.
there are no lanes, just directions-the whole road is a lane, traffic goes where it needs to.
Speed limits mean nothing until you get out of town.
look way up ahead because that's all you have time for. The stuff up close is too close to do anything about, so ignore it.
Kind of like off-road riding-so good training

I didn't see you on the sidewalk once though-most riders use them as yet another lane around the cars
There was another steep learing curve imposed when I got back to north america and was riding my vf750f-had to learn all over again that I was just another vehicle, and the rules applied to me the same as cars-they weren't just pylons anymore.
It really hit home one day about a week after my return when I found myself jumping off a curb in 3rd at about 50mph back into traffic after a blast down a block-long sidewalk in a 25mph zone in the states: the cops in the opposing lane at the lights didn't turn their lights on, but the jaws dropped and the look of total shock on their faces made me think: oh yeah-that's not right here: I was in the zone and not thinking of what I was doing and had slipped back into Korean mode-I made a concious effort after that to regulate myself a bit more
