Some may not know that I live in China and have been for 6 years now. On the weekend I went to Chongqing and showed this post elswhere ..Chongqing
(how much more Chinese sounding can you get!) located near the middle of China is the World's largest producer of everything motorcycle, more than the rest of the World combined apparently and I went there over this Labour Day weekend for a bit of work and relaxation and thought some may be interested....Getting there
I usually drive to CQ but decided to try out the new fast train of which China now has more than Japan ever had...
Lined up at the station, wanted a better shot but the silly girl with the smoking hot body, platform heels and short dress got in the way sorry..
The train is about 30 carriages long and hard to actually see end to end..
Going along at 200kmh, frustratingly the train actually sits on 198 to 199 kmh and rarely shows 200 but everyone starts taking pictures at those moments! ..
Getting coffee from the cute stewardesses at 199kmh ..
Passing through one of CQ's many suburban city areas which is a change from the villages I usually take pictures of ..The Hotel
I stay at is on the Yangtze river and I love it there watching the ships go up and down carrying coal or sand/gravel mostly, has a hell of a current and the ships are flat out at less than walking speed going West..
You can see the current flow in this piccy behind the berthed boat in the foreground ..
Dinner cruises at night
The new "Golden" Sheraton Hotel twin towers across the river..The engine company
What I wanted to look at mostly was the 600cc engines this company makes, they are a joint Chinese/AVL design water cooled, balance shaft etc and totally modern ..
Crate of dyno'ed engines with various specs..
Incredibly handsome guy and some staff..
Me about to test the engine for real, they state 40hp for it with normal EU exhaust and CV carby but this one had straight thru exhaust and a flat slide carby and went like like hell, scared the beejeezus out of them when I ripped thru 4 gears flat betwen the factories!! I was asked to stop
Another post coming ...
