    hey guys, sorry for my disappearnce again, belated happy year of the Tiger!

    It's been a bit crazy for me; made my mind to station myself on a semi-perm basis out of my factory up north so afraid I won't be able to join any more rides for now until maybe late March when I'm back in HK.

    My eyes lit up when the China Drivers License application company asked me "do you want to pay extra $150 HKD to get the motorcycle class license as well for China?" and I said HEELLLL YEAAAAA LOL

    Franki, hopefully we get to meet sometime in China and I can learn more info from you on riding here! If you're in the Nanjing area, give me a shout, I'm 1 hr drive from the international airport (2 hr and bit from Shanghai).

    Hi Titus,

    Drop me a line when you are coming back.
    I don't go to Southeast part of China much but if I do, I will surely let you know.

    Hope you are settling down well.

    I'd love to, but although I now have my HKDL, I've not made much progress getting my bikes registered...might just "have" to buy an XR400 motard if I want to ride anywhere in HK anytime soon! :evil

    Ciao,

    No worries, take your time...things move slowly in ADV HK. :1drink

    FWIW: you might want to take a look at the HK Automobile Association website; they can assist with bike imports re emission qualification and other issues. Good luck!

    Hey guys, I am moving to HK this summer, bringing my bike, saw your post and wanted to introduce myself. It would be nice to know a few local riders when I get there.
