Yeah, everywhere in Asia, people, men and women alike ride two wheel motor vehicles daily; motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, etc. For most of them, it's a way of life, a means to get to and from work, school, everywhere. It's simply their main and often only means of transportation.
However, here in the good ol' U.S. of A., where motorcycling in general is limited to sporting and recreational use, Asians on wheels are a rarity. This is less true with sportbike riders. But as far as cruisers...an Asian on a Harley Davidson for example, is definitely "not" a common site.
I was born in Southeast Asia but I've been here since I was a child, over three decades ago. I along with my older brother both ride Harleys. I have ridden with many riders but know of only about a dozen who are Asians.
I'm a friend to all riders who are friendly to me. Same goes with respect as it's always mutual. I just thought to create this blog to share my experiences and perspective. Who knows, it may help someone understand that beneath the skin, all riders have at least one thing in common, we all love the freedom of the road. At the same time, maybe somewhere out there, others like myself, will find it reassuring that though they may feel lonely, they are not alone.
