China UK on a JH600

Having ridden quite a lot around China (Shandong, Hubei, Hunan, Yunnan, Sichuan, Guizhou on a Qingqi 200Gy and Zongshen Sierra), but ive now decided to go a bit further. I want to ride from China to the UK.
I hope to go something like: China - Kaz'stan/Mongolia - Russia - Ukraine - Mainland Europe - UK.

I was hoping to call on you for 2 pieces of advice:

First, how do people rate the JH600? Is it good enough and reliable enough to make the distance with 2 people and luggage?
Or, does anyone have any other suggestions for a bike i can buy and register in China?

Two, is it possible to get the bike out of China and then into and out of all following countries?

When i finish in the UK i plan to have the bike shipped back to China.

Im at the beginning of my planning, so all advice is very much welcome.

I think you are going to have to provide a bit more information about yourself before anybody can help you here Harry. Your nationality would be a good place to start and things like what driving licence you hold, UK or Chinese, when you hope to do it and how long you have would also be helpful.

Thanks Mark, thats a good point you make.

Im British and I hold a UK and Chinese bike licence. My GF who will be on the back is Chinese. Im interested how feasible it is to get 2 people on a bike with side boxes etc. for so long.

I hope to go in the summer - end of June. And i have 2 months free, but id like to do it in 6 weeks if possible.

The JH600 is a Chinese bike made by Jialing. Its quite difficult to get bikes here in China so i thought a Chinese one would be more straight forward.

hi ChinaHarry,
I have a JH600A too. just complete a trip from Shanghai-Lhasa.
Get same idea as you from Shanghai to Europe. I probably will end up in Brugge or Oostend in Belgium or maybe Calais.

for the bike exit China, i have read an article on a mag, a german success to exit from xinjiang to Kazakhstan with his YBR125(registered in Hunan).
So i guess there is a certain formality to proceed.

we should exchange some plan and information.
