    Hi guys, I'm Louis from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on">Beijing</st1:City> <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">China</st1:place></st1:country-region>. And this is my first thread, although I have been lurking here for a long time.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I had my annual leave last week. And I had a nice tour in the <st1:place w:st="on">Inner Mongolia</st1:place> with my R1200GS Adv.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    As an Adv Rider, <st1:place w:st="on">Inner Mongolia</st1:place> is one of the favorite places we would love to go. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Here’s the riding report I want to share with you:

    I set off on Sunday from the city and heading to the north. At first, the road was good, and too good to make me sleepy.<o:p></o:p>

    When the road is good and when you ride alone, you get too sleepy to ride soon. So I had a rest at 97Km point of DeWei line.

    I hope you can fix your pic links. The picture address needs to end in .jpg and the hosting site must allow "hotlinking" from their site.

    Louis, Please use a photo album site from outside China to make it easier for us to see. If you use a China photo album site will be very slow for us. Hope you will be successful.:clap

    I just communicated with Louis.

    He has set up a Photobucket account and will soon load his
    pictures and link them to this thread as time at work allows.

    Normally I ride with friends. So when I ride alone, I made few stop.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Here is a reservoir along the way. The altitude grow form 80 meters to about 750 meters here.<o:p></o:p>

    And then, the road is good, and I rode fast and far. It’s around 17:00 I arrived in the southern part of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on">Inner Mongolia</st1:place>.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    The altitude was raising upto about 1700 meters here. And the wind was pretty strong. So they set up lots of windmills to make electricity.

    The hours of sunset are always good time to see the view and to make photos.

    Acctully, there’s big road of G306 which would be easier to go. But I’d rather to take the small route of JingShan line. Small roads always gotta more fun and better scenery.
