    Roadside shrines for good luck on the road and herewith temporarily stopping the Sanya - Hainan ride report as my Jialing JH600 ADV cruiser has been washed & cleaned, Ctek battery charger plugged in and bike is securely stored as I am on my way back up to Shanghai right now, unfortunately by plane.
    4+ weeks road trip (6000+k's) went by in a flash but the next bike rides are currently in the final planning stages.

    ...to be continued...

    Met the Spanish biker group going from Beijing to Madrid while at the Moganshan Lodge (Moganshan Mountains near Hangzhou / Zhejiang) for a long weekend: http://moganshanlodge.com
    They picked up some brand-new CJ's to take on the long ride to Europe http://www.beijing-madrid.com
    The riders group had a Jialing JH600, BMW GS1200, BMW GS650 beside the CJ sidecars.
    Some of the CJ bikes had just a tad over 200'ks on the clock, riding Shanghai - Moganshan for the first repairs and pit-stop...

    Run to the Great Wall of China and beyond.....

    Had a bit of service done to my Italian bike in the Ducati service center Shanghai for some rides in the Northern part of the motherland (greater Beijing region). Shipped the bike up to Beijing early last week with one of our regular trucks as I have done the S-B-S tour quite often and a waste of time (around 5 days for a Shanghai-Beijing-Shanghai round trip in the old days) in my personal opinion. Has been 8 years since I had my own bike in Capital City after selling my bike up here to a mate.

    Got a few weeks ahead doing cruising around the greater Beijing mountain regions with the Italian bike and my bicycle (beats the friggin' Beijing traffic anytime)..... Beijing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beijing

    Track-Day with the Beijing Superbike guys at Goldenport Park Track Beijing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldenport_Park_Circuit

    Great BMW bikes.... a BMW HP2 Enduro would be great for the motherland but they hardly come up for sale anymore due to collectors status.

    Greater Beijing area has brilliant twisty mountain roads, foggy days during last weekend rides but brilliant riding.
    Went out with a few MCM members on Sunday (approx. 340k) and Monday (approx. 240k) with more to come during the next weeks.....

    Attached some route screenshots (GPS Tracker) provided by a Monday rider.

    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......
