Depending on how much you want to pay, I just sold my BMW F650GS to a friend who owns a bike shop here in Yeosu. Not sure how much he's charging for it, but it's a bloody great bike!  :D

At goulash. how much did you sell your BMW for if I may ask? I don't really know the prices of bikes in Korea but if it is a great bike I don't mind spending a couple of bucks!

Bought it for W7 Mill, and traded it in for W4.5 Mill. He'll probably be selling it for a bit more than that though, as it was sold in winter and as I said, it was a trade-in.

If you're wanting anything more than a little 125cc Dailem or Hyosung, than you'll be paying anywhere from W2 million upwards for a second hand bike.

Check out www.passo.co.kr for a better idea of what bikes cost. It's in Korean, but fairly easy to fumble your way around the site. From the main page, click on Motorcycle, and then the first green button on the top left (사이버매정) to see the bikes for sale. Oh... and with most Korean sites, it only works properly in IE6.

Good luck. Riding around this country is one of the most fun things I do here. :)

Passo.co.kr is one of the bigger bike sites.  One tip though, don't trust odometer readings.  They call it "quick service".  I hear that about 90% of bikes have had their odometers rolled back.  If you'll notice most bikes have about the same milage, depending on year.
