    It took a while.. but it's worth it.
    here's a little promo video for tour operator as promised.
    Made with footage from my travel video during this trip.
    Rather amateurish and made with iMovie, but hope it's good enough for his business.

    Not bad.. my video just got nominated for the 'Video of the Month'

    Video : Cruising The Roof of The World

    anyway, win or not I'm working on the longer version now.
    I've so much more scenes on Tibet to share than in that short trailer.

    Interesting! Nobody actually sits in the sidecar?

    I am planning for a trip in November and am looking at Tibet. Do you happen to know of any motorcycle rentals in Tibet?

    if i have a partner crazy enough like me.. yes i can carry a passenger in the sidecar.
    you can't rent a bike 'legally' and ride in Tibet and in China as a whole.
    especially in Tibet, you need to do in with a tour group and get a temporary riding license.
    international license is not recognized in China.
    you can book a tour of the the mentioned group in Shanghai or various others from Nepal or India.
