    Great pictures of a beautiful country. I wish I could get around as you do. I'm currently in Chongqing, heading for Beijing in a few days. But alas, I'm stuck with public transportation partially due to linguistic problems and the resulting lack of a chinese driver's license. Not to mention the fact that I couldn't fit my 1200GS in my luggage.

    Thanks for documenting the trip.

    Quick blast up the expressways towards Chongli (got off the expressway at Zhangjiakou) and took a nice scenic route back to Beijing via Chicheng and the Baihepu Reservoir.
    Great 580k ride with nice weather and brilliant tarmac roads - no traffic at all....

    Monday lunch run, a flat rear tire is not going to stop me getting my tasty mountain food.....
    Tubeless tires, easy plug & play with sticky rope and air compressor stored under the seat at all times.

    One of the must do things while motorbiking around the Beijing mountain ranges is a stopover at the Chinese restos serving fresh caught trout, grilled on top of charcoal - delicious......

    Breakfast from the snack bag preferred as I am not a big fan of rice porridge, century eggs and dumplings....
