Track-Day with the Beijing Superbike guys at Goldenport Park Track Beijing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldenport_Park_Circuit

Great BMW bikes.... a BMW HP2 Enduro would be great for the motherland but they hardly come up for sale anymore due to collectors status.

Greater Beijing area has brilliant twisty mountain roads, foggy days during last weekend rides but brilliant riding.
Went out with a few MCM members on Sunday (approx. 340k) and Monday (approx. 240k) with more to come during the next weeks.....

Attached some route screenshots (GPS Tracker) provided by a Monday rider.

Great pictures of a beautiful country. I wish I could get around as you do. I'm currently in Chongqing, heading for Beijing in a few days. But alas, I'm stuck with public transportation partially due to linguistic problems and the resulting lack of a chinese driver's license. Not to mention the fact that I couldn't fit my 1200GS in my luggage.

Thanks for documenting the trip.

Quick blast up the expressways towards Chongli (got off the expressway at Zhangjiakou) and took a nice scenic route back to Beijing via Chicheng and the Baihepu Reservoir.
Great 580k ride with nice weather and brilliant tarmac roads - no traffic at all....

Monday lunch run, a flat rear tire is not going to stop me getting my tasty mountain food.....
Tubeless tires, easy plug & play with sticky rope and air compressor stored under the seat at all times.

One of the must do things while motorbiking around the Beijing mountain ranges is a stopover at the Chinese restos serving fresh caught trout, grilled on top of charcoal - delicious......

Beijing to Weichang overnight ride, cloudy misty day on the way up and all day rain on the way down.
No worries, still a great ride through the Chinese outback....

Some info about Weichang Manchu and Mongol Autonomous County: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weichan...onomous_County
