Laowai Not: Passion for motorcycling


Clay Jones, American, has been in China for 15 years.  Clay has a passion for motocycles since a young age. One of the main goals for him come to China was to ride a motocyle in China. Now he has a motocycle club in Beijing.

The Long March (LMMC) was founded as a sidecar club in 1997 by a bunch of Scandinavian engineers living in Beijing. It was eventually inherited by longtime American biker, Clay Jones, who transformed the group into a fully developed Chinese motorcycle club (MC) with all of the necessary Protocol, ranks and patch systems in place that go along with this kind of organization.

China is apparently a cool place to ride and in the 15 years Clay Jones has been blasting about on his machine here, he has never once been cited for a traffic violation.
