Mongol pride connects us

By B.ANU

            The following interview is with K.Enkhtumur, an information worker at MIAT and a member of a brotherhood called “Mongolian choppers.” He has been very interested in motorcycles since he was young. He said he can only feel freedom when he’s riding his chopper.  A chopper is a type of motorcycle that was either modified from an original design (“chopped”) or built from scratch in order to have a unique hand-crafted appearance.

-          When was the “Mongolian choppers” brotherhood founded?

-          It was founded in 1996 by four or five guys including me who were truly interested in choppers. The number of our brotherhood members is getting bigger. We now have over 60 members and a dozen followers. We are the biggest union of chopper riders and owners in Mongolia.

-          What was your first ever motorcycle?

-          I was really excited when I bought my first motorcycle called “Suzuki Bandit” in 1998. It cost approximately 1,200 USD. It is said that chopper riders are rude people full of tattoos. But that’s not true. Most of us are kind-hearted and generous.

-          What activities does “Mongolian choppers” do aside from riding motorcycles?

-          We’re trying to reach all social sectors. Lately, we have met children being held in prison, given them presents, and tried to cheer them up. Moreover, we have planted trees in the National Park.

-          What about the brotherhood’s summer opening and closing events?

-          Oh, yes! Our opening event will be held on July 25. It is really magnificent that we will all be riding choppers on the streets of UB. The closing event will be held in fall.

-          What is planned in the near future? Will you travel somewhere?

-          We’re intending to take a trip to Ugii Lake in Arkhangai Province on July 5, and to Ulaan-Uud on July 18.
