Hey MO,

You got to get a Hyosung section in the "Manufacturer's" section. They're great bikes and people will be buying them.

Don't know about its 650cc models, but Hyosung's 250cc models are great: cheap to own, cheap to ride & mostly reliable. The battery would die now and then, but that may have been because of the dodgy backyard wiring job I did on the auxiliary headlights and heated grips. Also, the transmission would miss second gear now and then when I was thrashing the little V-twin up and down between stop lights.

I rode a GV 250 from 2001 until 2005. Awesome bike. Perfect for small back roads. Perfect for commuting. It would easily hit 110kph-- or higher "kill yourself" speeds-- with no problem. With a rear rack and a back rest, floor boards and crash bars, girlfriend and I would tour all over. It's a nice big 250cc bike. On the way home from bars, we'd even be able to carry three of us and perhaps four.

Korea's a great place for motorcycling. Beautiful mountains. Great food. Cheap liquor. Cheap hotels. You can get lost and everyone'll help you. The windy mountain roads have wide shoulders and clearly-painted lines. Most of them are vacant, 'cause most people drive cars and take the expressways. No two-wheelers allowed on Korean expressways; all the better, since most two-wheelers there are under 250cc.

At any rate, MO needs a Hyosung section. They're great bikes and we'll be seeing more of them on North American roads.

I'd even buy stock in the company... if they issued ADRs and if I trusted their books.
