UK to Singapore via Russia, Mongolia, China

Hi everyone,
Im planning a ride home to Singapore leaving around July 2004 from UK. Plan is to ride across europe via Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Mongolia, China, Vietnam and then south to Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore.
Entering China seems a little more difficult than anywhere else. Possibly put my bike on a truck or train (as transit cargo), for the border crossing from Mongolia to China, and intend to ride onwards upon entering China.
I had ridden from Singapore to UK last year via Thailand to Nepal (flight), India, Pakistan , Iran, and now intend to ride the other way round back home. Anyone looking at a similar ride or would like to ride along, would be most welcome.
I can communicate in a litte mandarin, and hope to learn a little Russian for the trip. Would love to hear of any experiences in crossing China.
Cheers
Dalbir

Hi Dave,
Let me know what your plans are. Where are you heading to?
Im now researching information regarding the Russian and Ukraine visa. Looks like i dont need a mongolia or china visa for travel up to 14days each, with my Singapore passport. But will be heading down the embassies to make sure.
When do u plan to ride? Route? How much time you have?

If there's any info about this, please let me know. I'll be trying to get from Japan to Europe also visiting India. I'd like to see China & Mongolia, but not sure how possible that would be. I'd love to see Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia and would prefer not to take the ferry to Vladivostok from Japan.
