Heavy-duty motorcyclists take steps to better image

TAIPEI--Nearly 100 heavy-duty motorcyclists vowed yesterday to reshape their image by riding to visit charity organizations and tourists sites every month, amid public opposition to allowing their bikes on freeways.

Instead of holding demonstrations to fight for their rights, members of the 21st Century Motorcade said, they have decided on a softer approach to give a more accurate view of their lifestyle.

“We want the public to know that we are not crazy racers who love trouble,” said Chen Chien-tsung, chairman of the group that was launched Wednesday.

Chen said his group will start by visiting children's homes in Keelung and Hsinchu cities in northern Taiwan and offering the children free rides.

The bikers will also travel to various scenic spots across the country, including Sun Moon Lake and Shei-Pa National Park in central Taiwan, to demonstrate how tourists can enjoy sightseeing by heavy bikes, he said.
