Another beautiful Hainan Island day, cruising up the mountain roads through the green forests...









Bush Hairdresser...





Graves in the mountains and someone paying respect during the recent Tomb Sweeping Festival holidays.
The Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb Sweeping Day or Ching Ming, is a traditional Chinese festival on the first day of the fifth solar term of the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar.
Qingming Festival (Tomb Sweeping Festival) is when Chinese people visit the graves or burial grounds of their ancestors.
Qingming Festival is an opportunity for celebrants to remember and honour their ancestors at grave sites.
Young and old pray before the ancestors, sweep the tombs and offer food, tea, wine, chopsticks, joss paper accessories, and/or libations to the ancestors.







A very common sight all over Hainan = vegetable and fruit harvesting / trading...

Up the National Road #314 / Hainan Island in South China for some exploring around the central highlands...















Well - good time for chain lubing and maintenance while the bike is over on the ground due to a soft spot just before the water crossings and more trail riding...









































The trail ride finished in Wuzhishan in the mountains (approx. 80k from Sanya / Hainan Island). Wuzhishan is a county-level city in the south-central part of Hainan Island.
It was originally called Tōngshí and is located beside Wuzhi Shan, the mountain.

Only recently heard about these bikes on the GT-Rider forum from a Chinese tour operator (Corner Adventures) in this thread:
China Riding - Sipsongpanna - Thailand



This bike certainly looks the business, but we all know you can't judge a book by its cover. What do you think of this bike in terms of quality and value for money? I've found very little feedback about this bike on English language forums.

Yes, both "green" bikes of mine are Jialing JH600 and they are reliable cheap daily runners over here in China.
If you ask me, the sidecar is more fun in comparison to the solo bike.
Can't complain and the bikes get me around, efficient, reasonable and enjoyable.
Would I buy one outside China ~ to be honest, don't think so as much more choices in the rest of the world and spare parts could be a real challenge...

Jialing = http://www.jialingmotor.com and http://www.jialing.com.cn

Added a bit of colour (custom airbrush) to the MTS and enjoyed a nice spring run to Zhouzhuang and Diashan Lake area (Jiangsu) just before the May national holidays (4 days holidays and the massive tourist holiday crowds will be out and about as toll free travel on the expressways)....

TBR, this is a great thread, with great photography,

BUT ...

perhaps you've been in China too damn long. OMG - putting stickers on that beautiful Diva is just, well, too "provincial." And eights, no less.

Time for you to join Timmy & I for a riding sojourn in a civilized country. We'll set you straight.

well ~ aint stickers = custom airbrush and had to cover up the deep scratches some native moron made on the carbon windshield with a key or some other sharp object to have a look how carbon fibre looks like under the top clear coat.... we tried the number combo "666" but needed to integrate the three screws somehow that hold the windshield into the design.... got a new plain carbon fibre windshield on standby in the garage (easy three minute swap out).

I'll see you later this month up in capital city, coming up for a few days. enjoy the may-day holidays, awesome weather down here in Shanghai right now. talk soon....

ps: spot on ~ been a long time and two big anniversaries coming up = T-Square Beijing and my arrival right in the middle of the T-Square event....

Quick overnight ride from Shanghai to Nanjing (Jiangsu) for meetings and dinner with mates, great spring weather in early May 2014.

The Sheraton Huzhou at Taihu Lake: http://www.starwoodhotels.com/sherat...ropertyID=3414





As usual, a few temples long the route (National Highways G318 / G104) from Shanghai to Huzhou and onwards to Nanjing around Taihu Lake.













Stopover just up from the National Highway G104 between Huzhou and Nanjing to check out the New Fourth Army Memorial Hall
Full name "New Fourth Army National Revolutionary Army military memorial reconstruction", is located in the east of Jianjun Road, Yancheng, Jiangsu, China.

Who says... rumour = a tall tale of explanations of events circulating from person to person...
Rainy Shanghai Sunday afternoon... plate ~ should keep everyone happy for a while and investigating into the new regulation changes that apparently started on 1st. May 2014 and as usual nobody has a clear guideline....

During my recent Shanghai - Nanjing ride (May 2014) the Desmo service light (24000k) showed and took the MTS for a full service to the Ducati Shanghai service.
The MTS fells like a new bike again with the full Desmo service (belts, shims, etc.) and some extra preventive maintenance and service completed, changed the gearing to 15/42 and really lovin' it.
DUC-MTS ready for some fun rollin' and serious ADV cruising around Mainland China once again....







































Motul RBF800 Brake Fluid and Ferodo Brake Pads guarantee brilliant stopping power once again.





New set of Altrider header guard & cylinder head guard: http://www.altrider.com
Old Altrider guard set goes for powder coating due to extensive stone chipping.

Jialing sidecar maintenance service was due and had Shanghai's trusty Jialing service (Xiao Fan) change the engine oil, oil filter, cushion drive rubbers, brake pads (rear).
The JL JH600B beast runs good as new....
































Took the Jialing JH600 sidecar for a nice loop through Qingpu district to check everything is fine after the service.
Ever wonder about the confiscated motorbike impound lot location, we have a few but a large one is just on HuQingPing Highway (National Road 318) underneath the G1501 Expressway in Qingpu district of Shanghai.













4500 Huqingping Highway, Qingpu, Shanghai

Lunch meeting over in Suzhou / Jiangsu (Jinji Lake - Suzhou Singapore Industrial Park) and took the MTS for a run over. Time of the year again for farmers to sell watermelons and they looked good pretty good to the eye ~ not like the ones sold of trucks injected with red die and sugar water to add weight and enhance the sweetness.....













Shows how much I really love my Ducati Multistrada 1200S Pikes Peak, brilliant Italian bike.....
