Hello from Beijing

Post by litesport »

Hi there, I am an Aussie living in Beijing.
Obviously new to the forum and will be taking a good look around. I currently do not own a Zumo but I hope to buy one soon for an upcoming ride I am planning.
The plan is to ride from Beijing to Kashgar and then over to Tajikistan/Krygzstan to ride the Pamir highway. I am looking to buy second hand and want something I can install OSM and add gpx files to. I'm thinking of a Zumo 346.
G'day and what are your thoughts on the 346 or should I choose something better?

Wow - that's some trip! I'll be interested to hear how you get on in Kashgar. I was there some 30 years ago, prior to doing the Karakorum Highway, so well before the Chinese started their ethnic clearance. Amazing place. What bike are you riding?

I'm riding a Benelli TRK502 that I've bought here second hand. I was in Kashgar about 3 years age, amazing place.
