Day 325 in Beijing: Vroom, Vroom!

 

I love the juxtaposition of the old bicycle beside this brand new motorcycle.

I have posted a lot of pictures of cars on my blog so far.

There have been tiny ones.

There have been large ones.

There have been electric ones.

There have been ones that are driven by the biggest engines around.

However, I don’t think I’ve posted any motorcycles.

This has to stop!

So, here is my first motorcycle blog post.

Jill and I went to a photo exhibition in the 798 a week or so ago and it was a gorgeous day out.

The weather was nice, the sun was shining, and we were enjoying the art.

The 798, by the way, is a major art district that used to be old factories.

It is now quite hip and quite cool.

My friend, Jonathan Kos-Reed, was putting on an exhibition and we decided to check it out.

I know Jonathan because I am friends with his brother, Isaac, from back  in the San Francisco Bay Area as we used to hang out and both have a great love of Cuban salsa music and dancing.  Both Isaac and his wife, Mary, are wonderful people and a lot of fun.

Isaac introduced me to Jonathan a few years back, when Jonathan was visiting, and we’ve kept in touch and he’s a great guy.  He’s living in China for many years and is a pretty famous actor here in China.

So, we enjoyed the photography exhibition and started to head home.

We noticed this gorgeous motorcycle outside the gallery and decided to take a few pictures as we were blown away with the artistry and style of this bike.
