This is nasty, if not criminal. If you've got a problem with another country and want to burn their flag, that's fine with me. It's only a piece of cloth after all. But burning motorcycles? What have they ever done to you?

Members of the Korea Import Motorcycle Environment Association and a group of users of Japanese motorcycles, burn a Japanese flag and Japanese motorcycles during an anti-Japan protest in Seoul August 25, 2012. The protesters demanded Japanese goverment stop its claim to a set of remote islands called Dokdo in Korean and Takeshima in Japanese at the rally and said they will boycott motorcycles made in Japan. Seoul says the desolate volcanic islets have been recorded as being a part of Korean territory since 512 but Tokyo says that although it gave up all territorial rights to Korea under the 1951 Treaty of San Francisco, control of the islets was not relinquished to Korea. Japan colonised the Korean Peninsula from 1910 to 1945 by force. REUTERS/Park Mun-ho/Newsis
