I can reason with you on the fact that I am Ukrainian, and we are not a western people. Perhaps it is ignorant for me to say that being "courteous and polite" are traits of an oriental upbringing, but I am speaking merely from experience, which happens to be more than a fair share of it, and I needn't see the need to precise.
On another note, I will try reasoning with her father, but it must be understood that he speaks very little English and I, very little Chinese. As for choosing between her and the bike, that is a choice I am unwilling to make at my age, for I am nowhere near the point in my life where I should even be thinking about making a commitment. Had we been together longer, perhaps getting rid of the bikes would have been taken into consideration but unfortunately, that's not the case.
It may surprise you to find out that before studying finance, I have studied law, and I am fully aware of what the "biker culture" represents... but I honestly didn't think that her father would think I'm Yakuza or Triad. I own Italian bikes, for god's sake.

If it doesn't work, plant a bomb in their car, do a ride-by and blast their house up with your uzi. 'cause that's how we roll (apparently).

Knowing chinese will help you out a lot in getting on their good side. so ask ur gf to start teaching you, be outrageously respectful to her parents by saying "hi, how are you?" all the time and shaking the father's hand whenever you get the chance. If you ever go to a family gathering, bring something as a present or something, be it some fruit, cake, dessert, etc. and try not to hold ur gf anywhere other than her hands while in their presence.
with the not really being able to converse with her parents, I know wat you mean...i speak cantonese and my gf's parents speak toi san so it's hard to converse with them also. tho they understand what i say...but when they talk...i'm like "huh??" anyhow actions speak much louder than words to parents.
