I am very interested in Bosozoku/Motorcycle Gang subculture of Japan. I am very interested in reading Bukkomi no Taku. Unfortunately no translations is available as of yet, far as I know. Has anyone here read this Manga as of yet? If yes, why did you think?

There are other motorbikes etc mangas?
Isn't Gto the early years kinda like that too?
I just have a question, though.. Is there like a name or something for the kanjis that characters put in the back of their outfits? Or is it a tradition or something?
I have seen it being repeated in different anime/manga like Shaman King, also in GTO
If you know about GTO, Misaki's outfit also has a lot of kanjis, and now that I remember the 4th hokage has things wirtten in the back of his outfit, and IIRC Ippo's boxers from Hajime no Ippo also have some kanjis...
So is there like a name for this thing? I have mainly seen it in Motorcycle gang manga, that's why I figured to ask here, guessing is a tradition between motorcyclists.

I think the bosozoku culture is very proud of their Japanese heritage and that's why they use kanji for everything, instead of kana. (A little bit like the yankis do) examples: 夜露死苦, instead of hiragana yoroshiku, or 愛死天流 for "i love you"
In the present day there's very few gangs left, most of them were disbanded in the 90s.
But since my source is a conversation with a Japanese friend which took place five months ago, it may not be accurate.
