I hope they copy the XR 400 work horse reliability. That was one of the best bikes I had did everything.

When are you coming up to Xinjiang next ?

Hi Bigdamo,

Yes, that is why is spent the time posting this thread but personally I am not getting my hopes up. There are too many fundimental differences between the Japanese and the Chinese for me to draw equation.

I'd love to visit Xinjiang again but I have other goals too. So I need to sort out my priorities. 2012 major target is to ride down to S. America.
