Korean Man Has Scooter Stolen After Riding 64,000 Miles To Manchester

Korean Man Has Scooter Stolen After Riding 64,000 Miles To Manchester

A Korean man's epic journey across the globe was put to an abrupt end when he arrived in the UK and had his scooter stolen.

The Manchester Evening News reports that Yung Gu Ro, 43, had visited 37 countries and covered than 64,000km on his Honda PCX125 over a period of 14 months.

He told the newspaper it was always his dream to travel the world, with England being one of the destinations he couldn't wait to visit.

Sadly his dreams all came crashing down when he made it to Manchester and had his bike and a number of his possessions nicked.

On Friday the lone traveller, who had been documenting his trip on a blog entitled 'Around World with Scooter', posted a picture of his vehicle with the caption: "My trip seems to have ended in Manchester. Someone stole my bike."

The only positive is he still had his camera, passport and iPad on him to help him communicate. But that's a pretty crappy consolation prize considering the thief took the documents he needed to get back to his country, along with his clothes and (most essentially) his means of transport.

Upon hearing what had happened, Lee Hindle, a service manager at Raceways motorbike shop in Lancashire, travelled down to Manchester on Saturday afternoon to help out

"When we heard what happened it just pulled at the heartstrings," Lee told the MEN.

"Yung came to us on Thursday to get an oil change after he looked us up on Google and he was just the nicest guy.

"He told us his story - I couldn't believe it when I saw 64,000 on his clock! So we gave him some free muffs to keep his hands warm, and a free tyre.

"He didn't know what to do - he rang the Korean police at first. We told him to ring Manchester police and we just want to help."

In an attempt to prove the UK isn't a total trash heap, a biking community has set up a Gofundme page which has raised nearly £500 to help replace Yung's scooter and Lee and a group of buddies are taking Yung out for dinner to keep him entertained in the meantime.

Perhaps expressing a sentiment many people across the UK are feeling after reading this story, Lee said: "We just want him to know that not all people in Britain are bad!"
