Makes me want to go ADV riding there. The last time I rode in China I was on a GL1800 for 2000km - not exactly the bike for the country, but fun nevertheless.

Had a new BMW1200GS water-cooled for a testing weekend from the official BMW distributer / importer in Shanghai.
Nice bike with a lot of new developments but would not trade in my Ducati MTS1200S.
The MTS rides like a revved up super-moto on steroids. It has some ADV / dirt bike feel but super-bike performance in the twisties and feel more comfortable on a lighter powerful bike like the MTS compared to the big heavy beemer.

Next test rides will be on the new BMW F800GS ADV and the BMW F700GS (don't like the cast wheels) once they are in the country.
Loved my old F800GS "Bumble Bee" and the new model can only be better but time will tell......

Time for you to do the same with the JH600s. We all suspect that you are gradually changing your preferred motorcycle diet, from Italian linquini to Chinese noodles!

Beijing beckons! Extra bikes also available for Texas Aggie, should he venture to visit the city with clean air, zero traffic & pretty girls!

Leaving the Jialing 600 thumper bikes alone, well ~ some upgrades for touring like alloy panniers, stainless steel rack, GPS, better chain / tyres but for easy maintenance and parts availability leaving them mostly stock. They are solid reliable daily runners and very happy with both versions I have right now = solo / sidecar, would not trade for some "plastic-fantastic" bikes like the CFmoto or whatever they are called right now.....

Love the Z50 Honda "Monkey Bikes" as I grew up with them, learned bike riding on them at the age of 3 and wish I still owned the two CZ100 my parents and grandparents had when I was a young lad...
Here is another of my custom Z50 bikes (sidecar) great shopping trolley and turns quite a few heads riding down the road in Shanghai.
