My 2 cents worth on the bike stopping. I'd check to see if you have free gas flow with the fuel line to the carb removed. There could be sediment partially blocking the filter in the tank. Or the tank vent my be blocked.You could try riding with the tank cap off or loose to check it. If that doesn't help,I would start looking at bad gas or water in the tank.

Good luck

Hopefully he'll read this in time to fix the problem.

Oops, too late.



This still ranks up there as one of my favourite ride reports.

who is the girl?
She is just a girl who was visiting the QingQi store. The sales man did not want his picture taken but the girl was very happy! I did not complain!

I took a gondola up to the Grossglockner in July once and just about froze my balls off. The road through Heiligenblut is AWESOME. If you have time for a sidetrip and will be between Spitall and Salzburg, stop at the Porsche Museum in Gmuend. It's right off the hwy., very easy to find.

Just read front to back, fantastic. China, you either love it or hate it. I have over a year in backpacking it, speak no Chinese and just love it. So big, diverse and awesome. Thank you for sharing.
