Lu lives in Beijing
His shop is called Motorway
798 art district at Da Shan Zi

I found a thread on a forum talking about it:
http://www.mychinamoto.com/forums/showthread.php?2072-New-Shop-and-Garage-in-Beijing
The last post indicates the shop is difficult to find

Here's where he posted some of the pics of the shop:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=495330&page=181

His website is:
http://www.527motor.com/ I couldn't read it. If I recall correct what he told me is the 527 looks like chinese characters basically saying "I love to ride".

I don't know how far Beijing is from Hong Kong but if you are able to go find a ladybug some where along the way to take him. He'll know it came from Bug Sister.

Lu is a kick it would be so cool if you got to meet him. I think you were in China when he was here or some other country.
Thanks for the info on Lu's shop, looks like a great shop. Unfortunately I'm a 3 hr plane flight from him.

An no, no a XR650L I don't want the L..... thats like drinking decaffinated coffee. I want a R model.

Buttercup, How many kids can you keep up in the air at one time? I can relate to the ATV snowplow, that is the only way we have been able to get out of our driveway this year. See everybody later today.

Bummer that you are so far away from Lu's shop but isn't that about the way that type of thing work so close but yet so far away.

DUH on the L vs R model. I keep forgetting you're in Idaho and will be able to plate on R. But does the R have electric start these days? I'm so far behind on my motorcycle knowledge anymore.


A-1-9, There you go, a definite maybe..... Works for me. See you there if you make it.

I hope you guys and gals all had fun. Sounds like I missed the first nice weekend, weather wise, in a while. I made the trip to Bend to pick up a bike, it's in the back of the truck now. I bought it from "littlebull" here, LB, I understand she knows you.

Just got back from the Deschuttes Brewery, where I had dinner and a touch of liquid refreshment. I highly recommend their Abyss Stout. hic.

Weather was spectacular leaving NID and EWA, clear, sunny skies over a white landscape. Made it to Pasco, where it turned overcast. Then snow once I turned onto 97. There's a couple inches of hardpacked snow and ice on the roads here in Bend. Pi**ed me off, thought I'd ride the new toy around town, out to dinner, etc. Seems too much like home, as far as weather is concerned.

Hey, I have a question for you all. Anyone familiar with "state line road", souheast of Wallace? I think it's FS391? I've run it from Taft to the Shefoot area, it's a nice road for a rookie DS rider to that point. How is it further south/east? I'd like to run it to the St. Joe River road if it's a fairly easy ride all the way.

Thanks all, have a great time. Hope there aren't too many typos...like I said, I recommend the Abyss Stout.

>>>fair weather rider here... you'll be solo until the snow melts

you will find Dillon, as you age... the self-preservation grows in leaps and bounds... us older folks take a bit longer to heal... still dealing with a shoulder issue from a year ago for example....


Good to see all of you tonight -- sorry to be so standoffish -- it was in the best interest of your health.

Ahhhhh Dillon you laugh all you want . . . been there, done that, learned my lessons. It's cold out there and I don't like cold. Besides you had to head for home before it got dark mean while PNW Buttercup and I enjoy visiting for a while long then went out for dessert.

SPOWA, thanks for the flower that was the best surprise. I'll take a picture of it and post it up, maybe tomorrow.

IdahoRenagade, yep I know littlbull, that's cool that you got her bike. What did she replace it with?

How's Sunday the 19th for the next meet up. Kootenai Rider will be back and have a day to rest up and maybe IdahoRenagade will be around to come meet us. Don't know where yet but I'll come up with something.

And the new bike on the block belonging to JOURNEY ON 2 is a mighty pretty white bike. He promissed pictures and he brought them on his camera. It's a mighty nice new BMW F800.

It was nice seeing everyone. Thanks for giving me a reason to get out of the house this weekend.

19th sounds good... I like you Sherry, always thinking of us that aren't there. I'll bring my camera.

What is the Outta Sight Racing fund raiser up to?

Pics?

Make sure you keep it that way. I wouldn't want anything to happen to our very favorite Dillon. It's good to have you back with us again.

For this one I failed ~ no pictures and we didn't do the raffle or 50/50. We'll do it the 19th though.
