GC die zweite

Anfang Februar und schon die erste Tour mit Moppeds. Gut es sind nicht die eigenen. Für einen Trip nach Gran Canaria wäre dann auch die Logistik nicht ganz billig.

Vor Ort gibt es reichlich Motorradvermietungen. Wir haben uns im Vorfeld für picypoc entschieden.

The Pilot as did the best job in finding every single pothole and he landed the plane not straight, but very hard on the runway. But anyway, we arrived and that all that matters.

 China 2016 – a Motorbike Trip in Yunnan (short version)



The tour is starting in Dali and is taking us via Shaxi into the Tiger Leaping Gorge. This area is really showing off with giant rocks, deep gorges and the massive power of the river. In case you decide to take some time for  a sweaty hike you will be rewarded with some unbelievable impressions from the nature. After this your thighs may hurt, but at least for us it was worth it to do this exhausting  hike.

After this the tour took us through endless turns and small …
