You can use any model of Garmin GPS, just need the Korea maps. They are available from Garmin Korea, or from Mr. Bills Used Cars

ADV in Daegu

'bout damn time!
I came here to Korea 3+ years ago. At that time, ADV had NO Korea threads. Glad to see times have changed. THANK YOU. Glad to back on the forum.

And Oh, If anyone wants to ride, PM me. Fall is a great time to get out there.

Flanker - I'm in Daegu, and just got my bike a couple of weeks ago. This weekend I plan on going out exploring. Last weekend I had to work, but the weekend before I went down 902 (I think - the road south of Daegu that goes over the mountain). It's great here, from what I've seen so far.

Squelch, we have a typhoon coming in this weekend. Even if it's not a typhoon by the time it comes ashore, it will bring some shit weather. For this weekend, consider screen golf, LOL.

Almost healed from my collarbone! I am sooooo planning to get out once I'm all healed up! (two more weeks maybe!)

Flanker, where are you?

Ok, this weekend looks like a good one. Anyone in the Daegu area want to go exploring? I've got a 4-day and I know how to use it...

My club is riding to Naksan Beach on the east coast, south or Sokcho and just north of YangYang airport. You are welcome to join us, it would be a great ride. We will be staying Saturday and Sunday nights. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you the details.

Sadly I can't stay out all that time - though it's a 4-day, what that really means is that I can go to work in a shirt and shorts instead of my uniform this weekend. I'm looking more for day rides. If you send me the details I can look at the route and maybe tag along half the day Saturday...

SO I ditched work yesterday and went out riding all day - was able to go for a whole three hours before my Blackberry started ringing, but by then I was three hours away and I had no idea where I was. So I had to do a little crisis management over the phone on the side of the road. Anyway, I rode from Daegu down to the coast - I think the town where I hit the ocean was Gangdong-dong.

Flanker - it was good to meet you at the PX gas station. We'll have to go out on a ride sometime. The way I typically ride is to try to maintain a certain heading for a while, hoping to eventually get to some specific place. I take whatever road is available. But it's always good to have someone there in case shit goes seriously wrong...

I have to say, I have not hit a bad road yet. The mountain roads are perfectly curvy, and the little backwoods roads are off the beaten path enough to feel like I'm actually adventuring. Here are a couple of videos I took.

I am planning on going for a full weekend either this weekend or next. Gonna test my collarbone on Wednesday with a ride to work. Maybe toward Gongwon-Do again. It's a stretch from Daegu, but if anyone wants to meet up, let's try for Yangpyeong Friday night.

Got stuck behind what looked like 30 or 40 HD's on 31 yesterday. I tried to dice 'em up but there were just too many...I took another route... Some of you guys need to connect with me for next weekend's ride!
