Looks like you are "winning" as usual. Am guessing the ride was nice and warm. It sure is warm and humid a few clicks over here in Yixing. Soaking in sweat from simply wiring up the battery tender for big blue! Stay safe and see you in the fall.

Wet n' Wild in the Moganshan area in Zhejiang province during Tropical Storm Nakri, keeps the dust down and the Mosquitos away....
Moganshan ~ my favourite biking area for a quick weekend get-away = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moganshan







































































Checking out sections of the Land Rover Experience Moganshan http://www.landroverexperience.com.cn
The heavy Jialing sidecar is not doing well on the step sections and had to give up on the water crossing as the sidecar will just float up on one side.

It does sort of look like Butch!

I agree you have great pictures showing the true China..........

My beat up rugged Sony point n' shoot digital camera does a decent job taking simple quick pics for years.

Spot on, the sidecar Jialing JH600B is good solid fun, good for running daily errands and very enjoyable cruising on ride outs with our son and no complaints at all from our side.
Looking back, should have bought another JL sidecar for Hainan Island instead of the solo Jialing JH600 ~ just sayin' as the JL solo is reliable as well...

Haven't seen the mobile radar speed traps for quite some time, TIC = This is China, sure bet ~ the two cops were in deep food coma snoring on the seats....

Damn right. My "first edition" JH600B had the EFI issue, since resolved. Were I to stay in China, I'd get another in a heart beat.

Is that what the high-tech wizardry is? Wow. The stool is a nice touch.

Well - time came around again to head up to the northern part of Mainland China. The wooden transport pallet got modified a bit and makes bike shipment even easier using CargoBuckles to hold the front wheel in place, for the rear the trusty Pitbull Trailer Restraint mounted as usual. All the riding equipment, spare parts, tyres and tools got shipped from Shanghai to Beijing on the truck with the bike as the Shanghai - Beijing ride is rather dull and boring and did that stretch too many times in the past. Really looking forward to get out again riding into the Northern dusty deserts, mountain ranges and grasslands of China and got a few runs planned and mapped out.

Every corner tells a different story, there's nothing like the exhilaration of a relaxed bike ride, whether it's up the mountains, into the grasslands or even down some dirty trails ~ lets rock n' roll around Northern China....

Afternoon ride out to the Great Wall. . Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall of China located in Huairou County 70km north-east of central Beijing. The Mutianyu section of the Great Wall is connected with Jiankou in the west and Lianhuachi in the east. As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs.

The Chinese Aviation Museum (located 40km North of central Beijing), is also sometimes referred to as Datangshan due to its location adjacent to the mountain of the same name. The museum was first opened to the public on 11 November 1989, to celebrate the 40th. Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Liberation Army Air Force.
Part of the museum is located inside a cave in the side of Datangshan Mountain. The cavern was originally part of the tunnels and underground bunker system of Shahe Airbase, and is 586 metres long by 11 metres high by 40 metres wide. The road leading to the museum is actually also used as a taxiway between the base and bunker system.

A lovely day out around Beijing, taking my pedal powered two wheeled mode of transportation as the motorbike friendly Beijing Municipality Traffic Management Bureau http://www.bjjtgl.gov.cn launched a new campaign and enforces restrictions to use motorbikes within the 6th. ring-road of Capital City Beijing once again.
TIC = This Is China and just to complicated to explain the new restrictions in full details (fines and penalty points on driving license), enjoy the pictures as they come and the new rules and regulations not going to ruin my days in Capital City thats for sure... Very easy and convenient to get around Beijing by bicycle ~ through the small back alleyways, great ADVriding in a different way.....



Neighbourhood not far from Tianamen Square and Forbidden City. Liulichang is a famous district in down-town Beijing that is known for a series of traditional Chinese stone dwellings housing selling various craftwork, artistry, and antiques. It is one of Beijing's traditional old quarters…..
