Chinese Monks on a Kawasaki Ninja

Now this is one really weird sight: two Chinese monks with no helmets riding a Kawasaki Ninja 300, reportedly in the province of Guangdong.

Skipping the awkwardness of such a combination and the sheer stupidity of riding a sport bike (even a smaller-displacement machine) with no helmet, it's the contrast between the monk lifestyle and riding an expensive piece of machinery.

OK, the Ninja 300 may not seem like an expensive bike in the US or in Europe, but in China such a bike comes with price tags starting at 60,000 yuan, and this is around $10,000 (€7,775), which is really big bucks there.

With earlier reports of fake monks buying iPhones, driving expensive cars and visiting beauty parlors, we really doubt these two guys are up to the salvation of their souls and detaching from the earthly possessions as much as possible.

Nothing new here, we get to see a lot of so-called "holy men" indulging in the most common of the mundane pleasures in pretty much any country around the globe, so why would China be any different? Via CarNewsChina.
