    I actually just returned to Canada a couple of months ago after leaving Korea. I started riding in Korea and did a few Ulsan to Seoul trips (among tons of weekend trips around Gyeongsang, basically Pohang at the north to Geoje at the south).

    Man, riding in Canada is nowhere near as fun as Korea. So many brilliant twisty roads all over the country. It takes a couple of hours to get to the twisties from Toronto (there are a few twisty roads in Toronto but they're quite short and sparse).

    i have been on that mountain road- that one is awesome. here is a short video of the mx track they made in pyeongtech- about 10 min from Osan- it was fun:

    they rented some bulldozers and a dump truck so they could change-up the track. luckly we were still able to ride on the other half. i actually started to get into it. Today was the first time i got both wheels off the ground on this track. was sure if the bike could handle it. but no bottom outs and a little hang time- not bad for a 300+lbs bike with 17T sprocket on front- lets just say i barely used second gear-lol kenda 270s are not the best choice if you want to actually ride agressive...or in the really wet/soft mud...:ricky

    it is right cheer:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=3...psrc=0&mra=mift&mrsp=1&sz=13&t=m&z=13&start=0

    Basically from Osan you take hwy1 north and then get on hwy42 going east then eventually it turns into hwy3 and take it south about 15 miles. you will see an apartment complex that never got finished- huge on the left then up ahead you will see a road that goes off to the right- looks like a buss stop. take that road and it just down on the left. the whole trip was almost exactly 50 miles- seemed like more though. hit me up if you want to go somtime. last weekend was the big enduro event- i missed it but there was 150 bikes i heard it was a good time.

    Nice, good pics from my neck of the woods on 313.

    Anyway to answer some questions:

    If you're looking for MX gear or most bike related stuff Toegye-ro up in Seoul will have it. Toegye-Ro is called motorcycle street since most of the motorcycle related shops are there with plenty of mechanics.

    There's not lots of dirt riding but it can be found. Kangwon-Do way east I'm sure has plenty along with North of Seoul past Dong Du Cheon.

    Of course I'm based in Seoul...guessing you're not. I'll be riding to Chuncheon tomorrow, taking some curvy and mountain roads in between.

    Damn guys what do you wear? Its effin cold. I suppose I better reattach my dick and get out there. Im in Yongin and I've actually ridden past that dirt bike track, but I never knew it. I've actually been really skiddish on long distance rides. I've been caught in the rain way too many times. Last July I was trying to get to Gunsan and the rain came down on me in Cheonan, it was a two hour ride back home through it.

    Cool to see you guys out there showing me what Im missing.

    I wear heated gear when it's cold out. I have a nice neck gaiter to fill the gap betwen the jacket and helmet. And it's a good idea to carry rain gear in Korea, you never know when it's gonna rain.

    Here's a video from a ride on November 26th to Chuncheon. It was a little cold that day, had to use the heated gloves and jacket liner.

    Marvelous! Keep posting videos, man. My friend in Seoul said I'd love it there. These photos and videos are motivating me to save money for a flight and bike rental.
