Man Travels 18,000 Km On A Scooter Just To Go On The Nurburgring

How far would you go to achieve your dreams? Say 18,000 km (11,184 miles)?

Lee hopped on his 110cc Honda SuperCub in South Korea, and traveled through Asia and half of Europe just so he could ride a a lap of the Nurburgring. Well, technically, he went around the famous circuit two times, once on his trusty 8 horsepower scooter, and once more as a passenger in a SEAT Leon Cupra.

According to Bridge to Gantry, Lee even did the sensible thing and waited for the end of the touristenfahrten session before venturing on the notorious track, so that he wouldn’t hinder those with more than eight horsepower at their disposal.

Regarding the road trip, it took Lee three months to reach his destination, and it wasn’t a smooth sailing experience either. It’s hard enough to complete such a feat in a car, not to mention a scooter with a 150-km (93 miles) range.

Thankfully, everything turned out ok in the end, but Lee’s adventure is not over, as he still wants to explore Europe with his scooter, and (probably) return home at some point. We don’t know exactly what he plans to do next, but you can follow him on Instagram to find out more.

  • Sore Ass

    Wow 18,000 km (11,250 miles) is about 5.5 journeys by road from Miami to Denver (2064 miles by road). (Which I’ve done a few times by car). He must have one sore arse!

  • A MAN AND HIS SCOOTER.

  • smartacus

    What kind of job allows him that much free time?
    He must have a really good job.

    No doubt about it, he MUST have gone through at least 2 sets of tires and 2 spark plugs and wires.
    possibly a fuel filter and throttle cable; and probably a couple of air filters, headlights bulbs, taillight bulbs, etc.

    at one point in his journey, he must have crossed the yellow sea to China and continued the rest of the journey to Germany, because there is no way in hell, he can pass through north Korea and made it to the ring.

  • Blanka Li

    Well done!

    Crazy bastard, good for him! I bet he got a new gig being the spokesman for Preparation H after having that scooter seat shoved up his ass for over 11,000 miles 🙂 LOL Seriously though, that’s a heck of a journey and I bet he’s got some cool stories too.
