Sad news, the Jialing JH600 sidecar got crated again and is on the way back to Shanghai after all the fun in the sun around Hainan Island (Southern China).

Great relaxed riding around Sanya and the rest of Hainan Island and lets not talk about the pleasant weather every day, empty beaches and mountain regions (easy to avoid the touristy scams, crap and traps). Visited some nice areas during the island stay like Sanya, Dadonghai, Riyue Bay, Shimei Bay, Haitang Bay, Boao, Wenchang, Haikou, Rifan Bay, Sanya Bay, Serenity Coast Marina, Wuzhishan, Longmu Bay, Monkey Island, Clearwater Bay, Wuzhizhou Island, Yalong Bay, Ledong to just to name a few of the well-known spots.
The Jialing JH600 sidcecar had no problems, never missed a beat at all during the 5000k+ daily riding and bike tours and only required minor regular maintenance like drive chain lubing and once drive chain adjustment.









Hope you get some serious bike riding done in 2013 wherever you are, seeya cruising along the roads....somewhere - sometime......

ps: Southern China and Hainan Island cruising will continue in the near future as I am frequently down on the island....

Bit of a farewell BBQ cook-off with mates at Sanya Bay before leaving the island back up to Shanghai and normal life.....

The Sanya to Shanghai moonshine rum run was a full success and herewith mission accomplished as the JL sidecar was delivered to the HQP Roadhouse (Shanghai) after 8 days trucking the crate up from Southern China.
No damage to the sidecar bike and rum bottles to report....

G'Day,

Really hate the ever changing current weather in Shanghai this time of the year, got a bottle of sun lotion out of the cabinet, loaded the "Dingaling" JH600 for a decent run-in ride and heading South on my latest China road trip......

Went straight through Hangzhou city in Zhejiang province, actually rode very close to the West Lake area (painful slow riding as they build new elevated roads in city once again) following my GPS directions, got quite a few strange looks from car drivers and cops at stop lights due to the "no motorbike ban" in Hangzhou. Never got stopped by the ever present cops and two gave me actually a thumbs up sign, must be bikers themselves.

Between Hangzhou (Zhejiang) - Quzhou (Zhejiang) passed a lot of stone carving displays for sale at the road side, the stone / concrete carvings are everywhere in all sorts of shapes and sizes.........

After covering quite some distance starting from Quzhou (Zhejiang) the bike died with no electrics working at all, quick check (hate ever changing Shanghai weather and electrical vehicle problems) found out the battery was totally fried. No charge at all in the middle of Jiangxi province at a small Sinopec gas station. The station attendants were very helpful in letting me charge my phone, Schuberth helmet and iPad, offering me oranges / tea and getting a bike repair guy from a nearby village over to source a battery suitable to mount into the JL to get me back on the road again. Battery is not the original full size (half the height actually) but works fine. The two guys at the gas station refused any tip and just filled up a bit of gas (73RMB) but handed over 200RMB and drove away leaving some beer money for the assistance....
