Riding Korea, a long unexpected ride :)

On Saturday afternoon me and 4 friends agreed that we were going do our traditional Sunday run (we are surronded by mountains have 4-5 ranges we ride away almost weekly takes us about an hr to do)

Well 4 of those friends decided to go get drunk last night...So I said fuck it and set out on my own.

I ride a Harley, I know many of you don't like Harley riders, well I respect (and actually admire) dual sports etc. The reason why I got a Harley is cause I sell them and I got good deals on them.

So there I am in my gear, with my bike and 4 text msgs saying "I'm too hungover to ride" and decided I'm going take a "short ride" where too? Well let's start off with the mountain...Now there is this girl who is from Chengdo that I'm starting to see and I see her home town sign and I go erm, let's go there. Then I see a really big mountain and I'm thinking "Let's go ride that!"

At the end of that I saw a sign and it said Pohang, I went "Hey that's the Pacific I can find a beach and take picture of my bike" so I rode

Here's the route I took (I didn't plan the route that's just how it happened)



Having issues posting the pictures, all of them area available here:

Sorry for the bump, but I just stumbled upon this.

Nik, if you ever get back to Pohang, take the 929 (right past the airport/Marine base) out to Homigot and around the peninsula. It's a slightly twisty road with light traffic and follows the coastline. I wish I had the chance to bike it.

Nice RR, makes me miss Korea.

929 around to Holmiggot is nice. There's a local park out there with a wind turbine that you can stop at and see a huge hand sticking out of the ocean.

Nice Ride

Nice to see others posting here riding in Korea. I'm in Seoul and haven't ridden much in your area, but I'm looking forward to getting down to that area a bit this spring and summer.

If you're ever riding up near Seoul, let me know. It's always good to meet other riders in this area.
