Burgerman says hi!

Hi guys. Long time lurker first time poster. I've read a lot of helpful information from the forum so I wanted to say thanks and hi!
I have a 2016 cbr600rr repsol model.
I live and ride in Taiwan. It's crazy to ride here but I love the roads.
Bikes over 250cc here are not too common because they're taxed heavily on import.
You guys in USA don't want to know how much I paid for my bike here!
Anyhoo, thanks for having me!

IMO worth it, with the Taiwanese road system included in the package.

I had the luck to spend some time in Taiwan, and found that the roads are Swiss like in their engineering and smoothness.

The island has a lot of nice roads in terms of terrain profiles.

When I lived in Thailand, Police weren't worried about motorcycle speeds very much........

Same in Taiwan?

You're right, for me it's worth it. I have 10x more fun riding here on mountain roads than in Australia. There, everything is ordered and flat. You get caught speeding and you have to fork out a kidney's worth of cash to pay for a fine. In Taiwan, there are noticeably more speed cameras, but they are easy to detect. Cops here don't really check for speed much from what I've noticed.

Thailand was the same, Police not interested in motorcycle speeds much.

You're a lucky guy, where do you live in Taiwan?.....

Near Taipei, in the Banqiao area. I almost always ride away from Taipei, the traffic there, especially during rush hour, is a nightmare and not sport bike friendly!
