Entering China around the 10-20 Aug from Mongolia

Hi im entering Russia on 11 July and on to Mongolia and China.Im riding 2up on a honda dommie.
With China being difficult, I am planning to hire a truck to take the bike acoss the border, and anyone else going that way will be most welcome. The bike will be my luggage and i hope to ride again once in China and then again look at hiring a truck to take the bike out of China or if possible just ride it out. Entering China around the 10-20 Aug.
I remember Greg who rode an enfield from India to UK. He didnt have a carnet for Pakistan, but the Pakistanis allowed him to take the bike provided he put it on a train. Unfortunately he was escorted all the way across Pakistan, by a policeman as his pillion.

Im leaving Swiss next week and will be available on mobile for text messages only. +41792583859

Cheers
Dalbir

Hi Dalbir - I was in Ulan about a month ago, but proceeded on through Zilof Gap to Vlad and then via the Dung Chung ferry to S Korea. I can report that all the road bridges are now in but its still a very rough road - best of luck with China.

Sorry we didn't meet in Cork that day! Back home now in Wx.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
