Dunno why this same thing gets asked here about every two weeks?
Burma and China have been for decades, and they still are, the big stumbling blocks in that region. China (Laos-China-Tibet-Nepal) you could basically do, if you have a thick enough wallet to pay for the official guide and other paperwork (but be aware, that this will cost you a LOT, probably more than your entire trip onwards from India to Europe, for example - note however, that there may be some travel restrictions to Tibet).
Burma, I think you can count with your fingers in one hand, how many succesful overland crossings there have been from Thailand to India, or vice versa, in the last decade. Big money won´t help you there. Indian states bordering Burma are also one problem (but you´d have plenty of other stuff to worry about before you´d get that far).
I shipped from Chennai to Bangkok by air 4,5 years ago, because I did not have unlimited time or the patience of a saint to go and try my luck at the Burmese border. But sure you´re free to give it a try, and please report here, how it went.
Here´s a recent thread about this very subject:
(edit. I did Europe to Oz on a bike in 07-08, my info from that trip may not be 100% up-to-date any more, but I´ve done later trips in India, SE Asia and Europe, too, so please just let me know, if I can help with your plans in any way.)
