    AW is showing a side China that visitors don't see if they don't venture beyond the big cities and tourist spots.

    Thanks for the great report mister! Nice pictures and the bike modifications seem to have proved themselves very useful already!

    The areas you rode through have been teasing me for a long time now as it's the closest interesting (mountainous) region to suzhou but i never have enought time to make it all the way down there on my XTR. I made it as far as wenzhou last october (i could have made it further if i hadn't spent a few days riding with the sidecars) but my goal for this year is to make it all the way down fujian.

    Thank you also for that brief but hard hitting reminder of how quickly shit can go wrong on a perfect trip. I am going to start gearing up more responsibly now. Glad you made it through without any permanent damage!

    Things went fine, Felix. We all need a bit of luck at a time.

    I hear you are having a nice, much bigger trip ahead of you. Wishing you guys luck too and a good adventure. Have you heard about the earthquake today in Qinghai province? If you have plans to get down as far as Fuzhou somewhen, let me know. Maybe we can meet up. I got a nice place there. A bit outside of town though.

    Cheers,
    AW.

    AW, i don't think the earthquake will affect our plans as qinghai still quite far from where we are planning to ride.

    If i can make it down as far as fuzhou one day you will be the first to hear from me!
