    Re: TMEC 125 Enduro wheel Bearings

    Just a heads up and hopefully you figured this out on your own. It is very likely that the overwhelming % of bearings being sold in China are of inferior quality and if they have a quality brand name...

    Re: Initial review of the CoLove ZF500GYx

    After 4 months of owning, and riding over 9000 Km I can say I remain happy with this motorcycle. In May I completed a 16 day 5,800 + Km ride to Beijing on small roads and back through Inner Mongolia....

    Re: Initial review of the CoLove ZF500GYx

    After writing my initial review I found the time to take a longer ride on the Colove. Following that ride I would add a few thing to the initial review. Either the brakes have worn in or I've gotten...

    Re: 7000 Km owners review on the new CFmoto 650MT

    Too bad we live so far apart. I'd like the opportunity to get together and ride/compare the Benelli, CF Moto and the CoLove.

    Re: Chengdu- yushu, Qinghai

    I did buy a bike, still waiting on the plate as the holidays seem to shut most things down. Have you been able to sort out your logistics for returning?
  7. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    Hopefully it will be good news on the new bike. Going to be about a week before I can ride as the New Year has shut down getting the plates and insurance until then. I'll post information and a...

    That sounds like an amazing trip. I know people pull it off all the time, just seems to take persistence. I'll throw in my 2 cents (.1 Yuan?) regarding a bike. Main points to consider are...
  9. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    Well guys I pulled the trigger on a CoLove 500x today. Waited until too close to the Spring festival so can't get the insurance and plates for 7-10 days but I get the motorcycle tomorrow. Looks like...

    Re: New 500cc bikes

    Ngali,
    I've heard rumors and even suggestions that KTM was launching a 390 adventure. To my knowledge it hasn't actually launched anywhere as of yet. When I was at the KTM dealership earlier this...
  12. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    Modron,
    I did go to the Shinray/SWM dealership. They did have 2-3 scramblers on the floor. I thought I took pictures but can not find them so I guess I didn't. I was short on time and got...

    Re: Biking in Sichuan as an offer,

    I'm all set to get a bike, have the drivers license etc. Just have to decide on the bike. Is there an issue I'm unaware of regarding needing a residence permit to buy a bike? Assuming there is not a...

    Re: Biking in Sichuan as an offer,

    i'm living in Chongqing currently and hoping to do some riding in your direction. I'd like to connect for a few day tour once the weather gets better; and I get a bike...
  15. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    ShuBen, That's a good point. I have thought of that at least a little. Given the CoLove has a Loncin motor that appears to have been around for some time I'd hope motor parts would be available. The...
  16. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    I don't know about that, I was thinking about the Erzberg Rodeo if I could get a few kinks worked out (the biggest being skill level) :scooter: I am considering the CF Moto. It was the first bike I...
  17. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    Wish I knew what kind of riding was available around where I live. If there are plenty of off-road, small dirt roads etc. the SWMs would be a great option. The 500 looks very similar to my KTM 530...
  18. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    ShuBen thanks for the tips. I'm trying to find information on your suggestion of an HJ500X. Appears to be a Hengjian manufactured here in Chongqing. In pictures it looks very similar to the Motrac...

    Re: New 500cc bikes

    I'm planning on going back to the dealer and probably buying one in the next few days; depending on a few preliminary issues being resolved that is. I'll do a visual, take pics and pass on what I see.
  20. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    I understand there is a connection between Shinray and SWM. Are SWM's manufactured in China now? The scrambler style is becoming big again, and for good reason. Both of those models look great.

    The specs I listed came off the web. Your post made me go back and do more research, thanks for that. What I found clarified a comment I didn't understand in a YouTube review. The bike comes in two...
  22. Re: Opinions and suggestions on Adventure style motorcycles

    Thanks modron. I did see a Shineray X5 on the street but have yet to find one in a shop. I've yet to get outside the city and ride. If I knew I was going to find, and ride a lot of dirt roads,...

    I'm looking for an ADV bike with at least some off-road capabilities. Since it will primarily be on paved roads, my bias is in that direction. Love the dual purpose bikes, but not for any long...

    Metalmonkey, I'm new to China but now living in Chongqing. If you are thinking of doing more rides, particularly out west I'm be interested in joining up.
