i,m in qing dao china right now! you would not believe the amount of bikes hereIt is like everyone is riding. No one wears gear ie.leathers almost no one wears helmets it is incredible! Ther is often three or four people on one little 250cc bike.Like a dad a mom and a kid or two and all without gear.It is scary to watch. I cant wait to get to b.c. and ride again with you all take care. hey anyone do any riding in other countries? if so what was it like?
