    The road to Motuo is known as the most dangerous one in the world and it is the last county in Tibet to gain road access to the outside world. The Fufeng brothers suffered landslides during the trip to Motuo.

    Zhoushan China, for now.
    Be fun to hook up with you guys at some point. I’m on a work assignment in Zhoushan, but my wife and will be retiring in Guiyang in a couple years. I got my car/motorcycle license last year, but the only way off the island is by highway, so the bike is on hold for now. If you guys are ever in Zhoushan, pijiu is on me.

    Motorcycle Trip Through the Frozen Regions of Tibet, The place to touch the clouds---Episode 11

    During the whole journey, altitude sickness and bad weather made their rides incredibly difficult. They hesitated and dithered, but continued on the same path. Finally, they have finished the whole journey.

    Motorcycle Trip Across 6 European Countries, 3900 kilometers, 20 days, 15 motorcycles---Episode 1

    [​IMG]
    This time, we would like to share the motortrip in Europe by Fufeng brothers last year.
    The whole trip was about 900 kilometers, and it took Fufeng Brothers 20 days to finish the whole trip.
    [​IMG]

    During the whole trip, they travelled across 6 countries, including Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and Poland.

    In Europe, they got in touch with 3 local motorcycle clubs and established a long-term relationship.

    Thanks for sharing. I lived in China for about 20 years and wrote a lot of ride reports about my adventures. I recognize some of the places in your pictures. I spent 10 years researching and waiting for a way to get up the Nujiang past Bingzhongluo, but there was never a real road to get through to Tibet. It looks like they're finally making progress on completing that section of highway.

    Motorcycle Trip Across 6 European Countries, 3900 kilometers, 20 days, 15 motorcycles---Episode 2

    It took Fufeng Brothers around half year to prepare this motortrip in Europe. Finally, on May 23, 2019, they officially started this journey from Hongkong airport with joy and excitement.

    Dressed in uniform, they started their jouney from Hongkong Airport.

    Their first stop is Finland, and they were hurtling down the roads of Europe.

    Next stop is Norway. They rode their motorbikes through Norwegian forests, winding through the snowy mountains.

    In the beautiful Denmark, they thought that they were in Andersen's fairy tale.

    In Germany, they visited the BMW Group when riding their beloved BMW motorcycles and they are highly impressed by the openness and inclusiveness in Germany.

    Motorcycle Trip Across 6 European Countries, 3900 kilometers, 20 days, 15 motorcycles---Episode 3

    Even with adequate preparation, there were always various accidents on the road.
    But it were these little incidents that make each trip so impressive.

    [​IMG]

    europe2.jpg europe3.jpg
    On the way from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Hamburg, Germany, one of our brothers' Harley was malfunctioned.

    It would be very expensive to have the motorcycle towed to Hamburg by a tow truck for repairs.

    [​IMG]

    With years of maintenance experience, our team leader opened the engine to find the parts that needed to be replaced, drove more than 100 kilometers back to Copenhagen to buy parts and repair the motorcycle.

    Motorcycle Trip Across 6 European Countries, 3900 kilometers, 20 days, 15 motorcycles---Episode 4

    Only those motorcycle travellers would understand the hardships of the journey. Although the journey is long and not easy at all, it deserves all the time.
    [​IMG]
    They establised a long term relationship with three different motorcycle clubs and leart from the management experience of those wonderful European clubs.

    They were warmly received by a couple in Germany.
    [​IMG]
    A guide who had settled in Denmark, invited them to his home.
    [​IMG]
    They were invited by their teammates who owned their business in Poland.

    In the course of communicating with these clubs, they not only made many new friends, but learnt a lot from each other.

    [​IMG]
    Fufeng's trip to Europe has also attracted local media attention.
    The main content on newspaper: A motorcycle club from shenzhen, China started a European tour with a dream of traveling around the world.

    [​IMG]

    In spite of the differences between eastern and western cultures, the motorcycle was a great medium through which they can understand and learn different cultures while also spreading their own culture.

    This trip to Europe has been successfully finished.

    Other motortrips is on the way.
