Leaving Hangzhou, taking China #104 National Road to meet up with mates at the Moganshan Lodge: http://www.moganshanlodge.com for a group ride back to Shanghai.
This time of the year (autumn), the twisty mountain roads become a bit more dangerous and challenging due to the bamboo cutting and processing.
Stacks of bamboo along the road side and the small and large trucks with bamboo poles sticking out the back.

December 2013, once again to Hainan Island in Southern China for the festive year end season for some fun in the sun and disturbing the sleeping grass….





Preventive Jialing JH600 maintenance like oil change and a new green "high performance" chain, all work done at the Dadonghai bike shack….













Must be a training or stunt bike of some sort parked outside the Dadonghai bike shack…..

Ready to impress and upset the neighbours? The truck is ready to be picked up from MGM Hotel Yalong Bay (Hainan) front parking lot for RMB 3.8mil. (approx.600000$US).
The truck had temporary registration from Sichuan but could not make out the dates on the paper plate stuck behind the front windshield.

Massive construction projects everywhere including water & amusement parks, a very large multi floor Haitang Bay duty free shopping mall.
Atlantis Hainan: http://www.atlantissanya.com and Sea World Hainan (similar to Australia's Sea World / Wet n' Wild at the famous Gold Coast) are under development and construction as well.

Partially operational, weird Romance Park Sanya between Yalong Bay and Sanya under heavy construction.

The Jialing JH600 gets a bit of TLC and a final wash before stored away safely for the next bike trip on the island…..









Hainan Island ADV cruising to be continued during 2014, was not really motivated to take tons of pics during the trip…..

More great pics

Thanks for sharing these, TBR, making us all envious (especially the hunks of BBQ!)

That bizarre "Romance Park" looks like something one would expect in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Frightening! The typical truck-stop KTV appears more "romantic" than that place.

And I love the picture of the high-performance motorcycle shop. Perfectly representative of China's motorcycle industry.

Great pictures - I always look forward to your next installment.

Songjiang? Really? Wow, I lived there a while back & had no idea.

That street scene really looks like the movie set for Kung Fu Hustle (one of my fave Chinese movies)!
