This episode of the podcast is the first of a cooperative project with the Chengdu-based co-working space and restaurant Berlin Haus, in the “Haus Guests” series where we speak with local personalities. In this first episode I speak with Carl, a British expat who’s positioned himself as the center of Chengdu’s expat motorcycling scene after years of expeditions around Chengdu and across China.

Topics Discussed

  • How Carl got started motorcycling and ended up in Chengdu
  • Buying a motorcycle and getting licensed in China
  • Managing risk and danger as an expat motorcyclist
  • Best places to ride around Chengdu and elsewhere in Sichuan
  • Carl’s “Guzzler” WeChat motorcycle community
