Me; 2012 CFMoto 650 TR, Buddy: 2017 CF 650MT. In my book, Qinghai is some of the best riding anywhere in China. Technical stuff in the mountains, Tibetan/Mongol/Muslim cultures, endless plains and roads that go for miles, incredible visibility so you see any danger coming, and very low population so there's not a lot to worry about in terms of cars anyway. People forget half the Tibetan plateau is in Qinghai, and much less government restrictions etc. Although, the police did tell us in some small Tibetan towns that we should leave, as it was restricted to foreigners. Wonderful, life changing trip, I recommend to anyone.
