From shigatse to huangshi, chisel X took me home

My name is He Guobin, borne and raised in Hu Bei Province,China. Currently I work in Tibet. Every one may has a dream of adventure.To achieve our dream, we fantasize it, explore it and keep going all the way.I have always been looking forward to exploring the outside world by motorcycle, alone for 40 years.

At last here was my chance.

 

Because of my work, I had a long vacation in Tibet. So I planned to ride a motorcycle from Tibet to my hometown Huangshi, Hu Bei province, during this vacation. My height is 178CM, weight is 78KG. Choosing a car is like dating, I was very hesitated. Like many travelers, I hesitated to choose a brand between domestic and imported brands. I had my second thoughts, but eventually I returned to rationality. BMW, Harley these large displacement motorcycle is really a good car, but like most of my fellow travelers, i had a low budget. My oppion was as below:


1. Riders’ safety will be affected if a motorcyce is too heavy or has a low center of gravity while riding on the washboards or roads with weeps.

 

2. It is difficult to lift the vehicle only by one person when it falls off as the motorcycle itself is too heavy.

 

3. You will have a happy journey while you do not have to worry about your expensive motorcycle.

 

4, Domestic cars with high displacement have a good quality and is easy to repair as their maintenance shops are easy to be found along the way home.


In other words, there are a lot of good local motorcycles capable of riding over 5000 kms. The most important thing is the driving skills and riding atitude.

 

Due to long cycling distance from Tibet to hubei along the winding mountain roads and snowy icy roads, driving safety problems are key points. Factors such as endurance capacity and installation technology of motorcycles should be considered. After learing from many aspects of motorcycles and from mouth of my friends, I finally chose Dayun's TITAN200 X travel version for this journey (I purchased the first generation of this product, and now Dayun  released the second generation with better performance ).It took half a day to purchase and register. I really hope I made a good choice. TITAN200 X finally helped me to return to Hubei safely and successfully realized my dream of riding for 40 years.



Equipment is important for long cycling distance alone.After repeated checks and supplements, I finally decided to set out from Lhasa.On the first day of departure, the weather was fine and I was very excited. So I boldly decided on the cycling plan of more than 800 kilometers, from Lhasa, through dangxiong and naqu, and finally set up camp in anduo.At the end of the day, I was very tired. Along the way, I encountered hundreds of military vehicles passing by,. It was very spectacular.In a hotel in Anduo, I met many motorcycle friends who were driving by themselves. Everyone talked about their experiences on the road, which also made me forget how I was tired. BTW the journey by myself was not lonely at all.




The next day I entered Tanggula Mountains.Setting out early in the morning at 7 o 'clock on time, I rode about 50 kilometers while there was a heavy snow and the rode was snowy, I fell on the road three times. Watching the snows covering all over the road, I decided to part in a cave along the road culvert. I continued to ride after the snowi stopped. Going more forward, I saw  more  cars. Heavy snow caused a massive traffic jam in Tangula Mountains . Though I heard that because of the heavy snow the road had been blocked  for four hours, I still decided to move on. After climbing over a mountain, I saw many riders returned to the original road due to the weather. Finally I had to rode back to Anduo the way I had came. It snowed all the way back to Anduo. I thought that we were not able to climb over Tanggula Mountains. At last, a rider contacted a truck driver from Anduo to Geermu. With our 13 motorcycles on the truck, we set off at 6 pm that day. We spent two days arriving Geermu. We can do nothing in this kind of weather. We can only change our riding lines. Safety always comes first.




At 7 o 'clock in the morning on the fourth day, we set off from golmud together with a group of riders. As we had entered the boundary of Qinghai province, the altitude was getting lower and lower, we could breathe easily. Looking at the grassland, yaks and tents along the way, the scenery was breathtaking. Along the road, people who were curious about us said hello to us and took photos with us. There are many curves on the road. While passing through one curve by one curve under the blue sky and sweet sunshine with low horns of motorcycle engines, I felt that the motorcyle was part of my body. Riders on the road can not compete with me at my speed. I drove faster and faster. I do not know if I became braver or I riding a motorcycle with a better performance. I was so excited about that.



After a few days, the road was relatively smooth. I passed the Caka Salt Lake and Qinghai Lake.My plan was attracted attention of Dayun factory. After entering Gansu province, their manager in charge of Tibet contacted me and  maintained the car. There was no problem with the whole car. I moved forward after changing brake oil. On the road from Dingxi to Baoji, there were many potholes. Finally i was not able to bear. I drove to Tian Rao Secondary Road and sheltered for the night in Baoji. From Baoji to Hanyin, there were many mountain rodes. I was very satisfied by this jorney. There was a popular saying, ‘yao de jiu shi zhe ge feel’, which means ‘ I just enjoy this kind of feeling’. 



It was the last day of my journey. I rode from Siping town, Xiangyang to Jingmen, Xiangyang City and entered the highway.And I was very close to my home. I was getting more and more excited that i rode at 120 MPH and the motorcyle was still very stable without any floating.At about eight o 'clock in the evening, I arrived at Yellowstone. The light was warm and i hugged with my families. It was really touching.

Ten days, 3,800 kilometers, I finished the trip safely.Thanks to TITAN200 X, I have realized the dream of cycling that I have been longing for, and I have a more complete experience in life.However, I am greedy, this trip is just the beginning, and my dream of cycling has no end.


Finally, I would like to use my lyrics to express my feeling at this moment. I wonder if they can arouse the resonance of every one:

 

Patrole from the north to south,

Chase the wind and waves.

Challenge the snow plateau,

Indulge in the nature.

Born of love, born of desire;

I

Travel all over the country,

with furious TITAN200 X.
