    Rent dirtbike in HK?

    I was just chatting with a colleague that said a former colleague of his used to live here. He apparently used to go somewhere and rent dirtbikes and ride just for fun. I am a total newbie at that but have a Yamaha R1, streetbike, at home. Would love to test it out.

    There is a great place near Fanling, run by a local guy called Angus. He's a very talented MX/trials rider and provides great tuition for all experiences of riders. He runs training courses, which are very reasonably priced (MX training course is only $1200 for 4 x 2hr sessions, including bike and gear hire !).

    The website is

    http://www.mxclub.com.hk/

    highly recommended.

    Thanks a lot! Will check it out right away. The price seems extremely reasonable.

    FYI: Renting snowmobiles, dirtbikes, motorcycles etc. in Sweden is very expensive so I have not bothered. My Yamaha R1 costs HK$40,000 in insurance per year. Real money is 15-20,000 since it's sitting in the garage for more than half the year.

    Any idea whats happened to all the 2 stroke 250's in HK? Hardly ever see them anymore whereas a few years ago nsr250's etc were everywhere.

    Just that I always wanted one and want to get an MC28.

    Jimbo, have a look at these two local bike sites - loads of NSRs, you should be able to find an MC28 in there somewhere:

    Cheers Bungle, just that I hadn't seen many around lately thus was wondering if they were being phased out by the government etc due to emmissions etc.

    I miss the smell of 2 stroke exhaust fumes!
