Hello Gaijin Riders!
My name is Rick, 22 years old, and I'm from the Netherlands. I am doing a 9-month internship at a large Japanese company in Kobe and I arrived here two months ago. In the Netherlands, I own a 1991 FZR 1000 which I mainly use during the weekends in the summer (Riding in the winter is not my thing ). As the weather in Japan is getting better now, I want to start riding here as well .
The only problem is that I still have not decided if I am going to buy a bike here or rent one a couple of times. I prefer to buy a bike, but I have not fully investigated al the costs yet: purchase price, road taxes, insurance. What do you guys think is the best option?
Anyway, I am looking for enthusiastic riders in the Kansai area that also want to explore Japan by bike in the weekends! And if someone has a cheap bike for sale in the Kansai area, please contact me!
