    Default Global adventurer lost the motorcycle, fellow bikers came united to replace it.

    Who says there's no commerarderie amongst motorcyclists


    GREAT FEEL GOOD STORY: A round-the-world Japanese motorcyclist is back on two wheels after local bikers in Budapest clubbed together to replace his machine after it was stolen at the start of the adventurer's global trip.

    Kunio Aoki, from Tokyo, start his global adventure in July. On arriving in Hungary, Kunio's motorcycle, along with his gear and camping equipment were stolen after just two days in the Hungarian capital.

    Local bikers and a generous taxi company donated a motorcycle and gear to Aoki so he could continue his journey.

    The 38-year-old says he will return to Hungary next spring, where he will sell the machine and donate the proceeds to charity.

    Can you post the source please.

    Nice to see a good act being done by people.

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    I second @tibby!

    Selling your bike and donating that money.. is a nice gesture from the adventurer!

    Bikers do have a lot of unity. The issue is whether its positive or negative..

    Sometimes, their unity is in negative sense, like the 100+ bike riders zooming on Delhi streets that made a news...

    If we bikers use our unity in the positive sense, we can make a damn good image out of ourselves! A lot of Indian bikers in the past have been in news for visiting orphanages, handicap schools, donating, etc. and that is great!
