Q: Harley Davidsons for sale in China?

As you may have guessed from my username and avatar, I quite like bikes. 

 

However I've not come across many foreign-made (except Japanese) bikes in China so far, and really miss a good Triumph or a Harley. I plan to get my license soon and wanna make a few roadtrips before I leave - though are there any Harley sellers anyway in China?

There is a guy that mainly sells second hand cars on the first floor of the office block in which I work. Recently, he's had a few Harleys and other bikes on his forecourt. He also came to my office about a week ago asking about the price of Harleys overseas and seems quite keen to sell them. If you are interested, PM me and I will try to get his contact details for you.

Not sure what kind of road trip that would amount to, seeing as how 2 wheeled vehicles are not allowed on the tolled expressways here.  So you'll be sharing the old crumbly crappy roads with all the other poor folks.  I do my riding in the US when I have time....don't think I'd ever ride one here.

 

Don't forget to apply for the motorcycle specific license.  It's a different test from the car license.  Good luck.  Try not to die and stuff.

First according to the map this website provides

http://www.harley-davidson.cn/dealer/dealernetwork.aspx

It has dealers in  Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan,Dalian, Qingdao, Shanghai, Suzhou,Wuhan, Chongqing, Chengdu, Wenzhou. 

 

Second, I want to add something to cooter's post above. I don't know about the driver license for motorcycles. But you should check what kind of roads the motorbikes are allowed to run in.  From what I heard, in many cities the downtown districts stopped issuing new plates for motorbikes years ago. It can be difficult, and very expensive to get a motor plate that allows you to drive it in downtown.

I almost bought a Yamaha Road Star, I like them better than Harley. The riding season is too short in Canada and this year is cold, it's 10* at night. Riding season is too short. I didn't even bother plating my bike this year.

 I think driving a faster bike in China would be difficult, too many things happen too fast. I rode since I was a teenager. Just because a person can ride from A to B doesn't mean he can drive a bike. Maybe a V-Rod tho.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
