    Funny I just left Chiang Rai in Thailand and yes I did notices loads of other Nobs riding 4 up.
    You are the man
    Good luck hope to read about you soon in the Chinese papers.
    Yeah Chiang Rai is nice. I love northern Thailand. The locals do like 4 kids and 2 adults, so I never feel all that awesome, but I guess for foreigners it's weird to see

Yes, we would be drunk, and yes, extremely STUPID, but I know we wouldn't be off on the open road. For sure, I wouldn't put my wife and kids on a bike, at least AT THE SAME TIME. The ONLY bike that I would even consider for a family would be a sidecar model. This would allow you to ride in snow, too, at least much better than on two wheels!
    I know a lot of people think it's stupid, which is understandable, but I'm not asking for opinions on whether I should ride with my family, just about the bikes. Thanks for your concern though.

    He is in a dream world or as I said a bit Fat Nob.


    Had to ride over a snowy pass today (S217 14.233 feet)

    Not because I wanted to but because I had to no fun and very scary.
    As I've said, already done it, not a dream world if you're referring to me.

    I have seen many, many photos and videos from people visiting countries where this is popular, and it does look crazy to me. I still recommend you buy a sidecar bike. Your wife on the back of the bike and your kids in the sidecar. I can bet that your snow riding will be a lot less 'white-knuckles' on three wheels as opposed to two.

    My stating 'stupid' was not necessarily speaking to you, or even about you, but rather in my scenario of being drunk and riding around on someone's private land with a few buddies clinging to a bike, we would be acting stupid. My worry for you is that drivers around you would drive in a stupid way. I think 'stupid' is a harsh word; for you, I would say CRAZY...

    Do you know of the models of sidecar sold in China? I only know of the JH600, which is more than I can afford. At that point it's almost worth just adding $2k and getting a car - I think they are around $5-6000 if I'm not mistaken. I would love to have a sidecar - especially the Ural, but I think most are above $4,000.

    By the way, this is a sweet picture - doesn't look like it would be super relaxing on a motorbike, or car for that matter, but it does look amazing!

    I edited my post above, and you have posted in the meantime; I wasn't saying you are 'stupid' (read my above post for the explanation), but I still stand by me considering you a bit crazy

    Haha, ok, yeah, I think anyone who drives a motorcycle on Chinese roads has to be a little crazy, so fair enough.

    I haven't been in high elevation in quite a long time, and even then, way back in the 80's when I was in Boy Scouts, I never did go on the hike to Mt. Whitney in Southern California, the highest mountain in the lower 48 states (it always confuses people because they think the highest mountains are in Colorado in the Rockies somewhere). Anyway, I find the air hard to breathe, even at around 2500 meters, and I get headaches for a little while that fortunately go away. That being said--you are on a motorcycle, in the snow (looks plenty icy, too) at an elevation around-ish Mt. Whitney. Looks very, very white knuckle riding to me! You are on a CF Moto if I remember correctly?

    Not dual sport, however, but looks decent. Not sure of the price, however...
