    Anyone notice any change in Motorcycles being allowed on 'all toll roads?' I can report there has been no change in Chongqing or Sichuan provinces, motorcycles are still not allowed. I have yet to be...

    Re: Drive an RX3 1/2 way around the USA - NEED HELP

    First off, wow, that is a big plan, doable but big. My first question is why the CMC RX3? If you are set on it and have your reasons go for it. Otherwise re-think that decision. A good used larger...

    Re: Initial review of the CoLove ZF500GYx

    On the continuing review of the Colove 500x I’ve hit a bit of a snag. As previously mentioned an electrical issue began in June. Initially it was a matter of the dash resetting itself when the...

    Re: Motorbikes legal on Toll roads

    Not so fast. I saw the post and the change in the law about a month ago. The translation I came up with lead me to the same conclusion as you. Unfortunately when I showed it to a foreigner, fellow...

    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 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

    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?
  13. 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...
  15. 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...

    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...

  21. 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...

  23. 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...
  24. 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.
