This guy rode his 110cc Scooter 18,000kms to the Nürburgring. Then he did 2 laps…

Yeah, the headline says it all. Lee has just ridden EIGHTEEN THOUSAND kilometres on his trusty Honda SuperCub, weaving all over Asia, Russia and now Europe.

Riding out of Seoul, South Korea, with just eight horsepower underneath him and a lot of luggage behind him, this guy is a legend.

Last night he came to the Nürburgring, and needless to say, the “TF regulars” accepted him with open arms. You can guess what happened next…

Lee told us about his about his journey, the crashes, the camping at the roadside, the 4-litre tank of fuel with 150km range. It’s amazing stuff.

It was Thilo who was the guy to ‘do the honours’, and lucky Lee went for his first ever lap in the fastest SEAT Leon Cupra on the Nordschleife.

You can see his reaction in Thilo’s video below!

LAP 2: My buddy John confirmed that the Lee did the sensible thing, and waited for the end of the session, and took a lap of the Nordschleife on his SuperCub 110. And thanks to Tourifotos.de, we have photographic proof!

THAT is the very SPIRIT of Nürburgring Touristenfahrten. You can also see John’s video for the moment Lee returned:

I couldn’t imagine riding 18,000kms and NOT doing a lap of the ‘Ring. Eight horsepower or not!

Before you go, I really recommend you take a look at Lee’s instagram feed to see what life is like on the road, camping with your  8-horsepower scooter and seeing the world…

And one more…

볼로냐에서 베니스로 가는 길 아무리 도시에 머물러도 금전적인 문제 때문에 항상 숙소를 잡을 수는 없기에 도시와 도시를 이동할때면 도착 30키로전쯤에 캠핑을 하고는 하는데…. 베니스에 도착할때가 다 되었는데도 텐트를 칠만한 곳이 보이지 않는다…. 내일 묵을 숙소가 10키로 남았을 무렵 길 바로 옆 버스정류장에 텐트를 쳤다. 본인은 예민한 편이라 소음에 민감한데 자려고 들어가보니 텐트가 지나가는 차에 흔들릴정도로 차도와 가까워서 밤새 소음 때문에 잠을 못잤다. 게다가 더워서 옷을 다 벗고 자도 뒤척뒤척…. 내 여행인생 최악의 캠핑사이트… 다음에 여행을 오게 된다면 최소한 잠은 숙소에서 잘 수 있도록 해야겠다.이런 캠핑은 너무 싫다…. #캠핑#노숙#생존게임#모토캠핑 #유럽 #여행 #살려줘
