    G'Day,

    Started off in Shanghai, took the Italian Diva on a early weekend morning run to Suzhou / Tongli (Jinjii, Taihu, Dinshan Lakes) and the way back turned somehow into a temple run ending at the HQP Roadhouse Cafe & Restaurant Shanghai, brilliant day out with great weather.......

    Great pics. Are you based in Shanghai.

    I get up there a bit for work and am fascinated with the old BMW copy bikes that the Sideways Tours people operate.

    Recon I'm going to get me one.

    You have a lot to explore keep the pics coming:clap

    G'Day,

    Would stay far away from the POS Chang-Jiang sidecars, unreliable crappy bikes, owned a few and they are just nice to look at..... Get in touch next time your up in Shanghai, no worries.

    Some pics of my gone but not forgotten S&S HD Custom 1991 (1450cc) out and about cruising the Tibetan Plateau (2003).

    G'Day,

    Bike was picked up on Wednesday outside Sanya (Hainan Island) from a shipping company depot. Had to go over to Haitang Bay for a meeting and took the sidecar for a run in loose sand to check the capabilities before hitting the beach for a cruise. The JL sidecar is quite heavy (approx.400kg) and slow speed has the wheels digging in and loosing grip.....

    On the way back to Sanya (Dadonghai District) checked out a bike shop apparently fixing HD's, CJ and JL's, typical crappy China bike repair shop with no spares in stock the way the shop looked. In case someone needs to visit the shop in the future, GPS: N018°14'332" / E109°31'181" (not far from the Sanya Downtown Duty Free Shopping Mall).
    Mate living in Sanya is trying to get his Chang-Jiang 750 sidecar (CJ750 = China BMW R71 1938 Copy) going again with the help of the bike shop but the rotten electrical system is quite a challenge for some time....

    Some nice beach bars and guesthouses off the beaten track hidden away near Serenity Marina Sanya (Hainan Island). GPS: N18°12'888" E109°29'545"

    With all the Xmas cheer and Santa in the sun around Sanya it was about time to dress up with one off my all time favorite t-shirts and hit one of the swanky Yalong Bay 5-star hotels for a ritzy Xmas eve dinner.

    Hainan Island is quite deserted off the beaten track, overcrowding only takes place at the hotel resorts located along Yalong Bay, Haitang Bay and the touristy spots like Yanoda Rainforest Park, End of the World, Nanshan Big Buddha, etc....

    Spent two days up at Riyue Bay / Shimei Bay area (1.5hrs. from Sanya City) with our son surfing with the guys at Surfing-Hainan (RiyueWan).
    Brendan (Surfing-Hainan) and some guys hang out at some really deserted beaches with decent swells especially after a windy tropical downpour.

    Some Surf web-links for Hainan Island:
