I like the "alternative thinking" -- sorta like the conrod/piston tail light/license plate mount.

I think I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a knife.

Meh.

The wife and I were down there last week. We rode the Dragon twice on a Harley bagger. The first run we did have a couple of guys running low on talent and using a bit of our lane, but nothing too alarming. The second run there was NObody there, probably because it was 9:00 on Sunday morning.

Anyway, we didn't run off a cliff and we didn't spontaneously blow up. We actually had fun.

From their website:
"Zhejiang CFMOTO Power Co., Ltd. is situated in Hangzhou, slightly over an hour from Shanghai."

Definitely a different looking animal.. Almost looked like it's electric and they added a tank for aesthetics. But it's a liquid-cooled 250 with a CVT (continuously variable transmission):

Edit, apparently it uses a Ducati EFI system, so it does have a LITTLE Italian innit :)

I have been through several time this year, couple of time last year. No one came into my lane, no one stuffed me in a corner. All was well and a good time had by all.
Memorial day weekend was a total CF, but what can you expect? Early in the year, by chance, we ended up getting the very last room at the Resort one evening, the whole place was booked up with a vintage two-stroke club.

Oh, and there are lots of pull offs through the gap, faster sportbike behind you, pull of a bit and let em by, slow ass GW/cruiser/whatever in front of you that won't pull over? Pull of for a few minutes and you probably won't catch them again.

The gap itself is just one little 11 mile section of a whole menagarie of beutiful riding in the area. I don't let this thread discourage me from visiting this beautiful area.

Strange. My first thought was "and one in the stink."

Why does it have a clutch lever on a CVT?
