Asian Girls on Mopeds is a two-(wo)man team of asian chicks that love manga and ride mopeds (aka “crotch-rockets”). They do not ride them because it is cute or fun, or even because they are asian. They ride them because they have to. For them, being broke lone wolves means they are confined to a bike that only goes 25 MPH, get snickered at by twelve-year-olds who also think that they are twelve, and get hit on by white guys who they try to leave behind in the dust but cannot because they can only go 25 MPH.
We are always looking for more staff. All applicants accepted! (We will not discriminate against race or chosen mode of transportation, whether it be feet or wheel-barrow or giant tortoise.)
