    Sticky: Re: Getting a Chinese Motorcycle License

    Having been licensed through the normal legal channels in both Beijing and Shanghai, I have a hard time understanding why anyone would think it necessary to sneak down to Haikou and pay an agent 8800...

    Re: Chinese Helmet - Good Quality Ones

    This isn't the first time we've covered helmet quality in MCM. There's a lot of serious research out there testing what actually happens to your head and your brain upon impact, and I can boil down...
  3. Re: Looking for used BMW 650GS or if no BMW, last resort is Jialing 600 Enduro

    OK, I googled. Here's a news item just out in the past couple of hours about the Consumer Reports motorcycle reliability research.

  4. Re: Benelli Q.J. Opens Production Facility in Brazil

    This is interesting on a number of levels.

    First, Benelli Qianjiang is turning not to China, but to Brazil, to make its bigger displacement bikes.

    Second, it's fascinating that Benelli...
  5. Re: Looking for used BMW 650GS or if no BMW, last resort is Jialing 600 Enduro

    Searching Taobao for JH600 gives an idea of the range of parts available, and their prices, for the JH600. Quite a few bikes show up too. I remember Jialing itself used to list bikes in Taobao. Not...

  8. Re: New to everything, looking at a few bikes. . .

    Hard to beat a deal like this: a KLR650 in seemingly excellent condition for $2200. It's hard to guess its vintage, since the KLR was basically the same bike for 20+ years until a bit of an upgrade...
  9. Re: CFMoto Canada - distributor gets floorplan financing

    Hope to finally see and vaporware adventure version, but isn't it more likely the two 650cc models they launch would be the existing 650NK and 650TR?

    Dear Bakas,

    That Enfield is gorgeous, especially the color of the tank and the logo! Great find!

    Re: Chinese Helmet - Good Quality Ones

    I cannot speak to things like half-helmets that leave so much of your head exposed, but I can speak to full-face helmets vs modulars: Once you've used a modular you'll never want to go back to a...

    Congratulations! Great riding weather these couple of days. Hard to believe it's 18C in Shanghai today. (But there's no global warming.)

    Surely you mean when there are any issues... You are right to be concerned about after-sales support, or the lack thereof. Bikes sold through dealers cost more because they are on the hook for...

    Re: Chinese Helmet - Good Quality Ones

    There are a couple of threads in MCM about helmets, and where to buy them in Shanghai.

    I'm a fan of the HJC IS-MAX, a modular helmet that is under $100.

  21. Re: Shanghai Motorcycle Driving School - complicated question

    Dear Xiaofei,

    Sounds like a good gig you've worked out. If you are employed with income, Shanghai is a good place to live. If you like mountains and wilderness, you'll need to allocate a portion...

    Excellent! Not far from my office. I'll certainly stop by!

    When you say you "make 8 beers on tap" does this mean you brew them there, or just serve them on tap? (Either way is fine, of course.)
