spreadsheet

Hi Len
Got the spreadsheet "thanks" but I thought you were intending to leave same as me and going direct to Thailand overland and not using plane from India, I think going over the the top is to high for me.

contact info

Hi Guys ....

I've just sent out an updated spreadsheet with everyone's email address and phone numbers (along with basic travel plans and other relevent info').

Anyone who I've left out (probably cos I don't have an email address for you) and wants it, then pm me.

Have fun, ride safe !! Jimmy
I worked for a few weeks in Hong Kong at a Landrover Dealership - the only way they could drive there was with a very special permit - possibly not even a standard application form or anything and they felt lucky to be able to do that every couple of years - I think they got special permission from Mayors or some-one higher up (and money) - any way to say you're chinese or delivering the bike or something? Do it all before you go - it will be very hard to do! The general rule is no-one non-chinese can drive there. full stop.

Hi Ken and All

New to the Hubb.

Intending to do a trip east through a lot of the countries mentioned in this thread especially interested in seeing China if possible.If there's room on this trip ? I'd like to attend the November meeting.
Planning to leave late spring early summer.

Currently selling the house near Bristol and riding an MVF4 though now looking for a more suitable bike.

Cheers

Peter

November meeting

Hi Guys .....

November meeting sounds good, so well done Ken. As with Paul, Saturday'll do fine for me.

I've squirted the contacts/travel info' spreadsheet out to a couple more people, so this has generated a bit of interest.

For everyone's info' ..... Sheen has some good stuff on China after contacting Chinese Travel agents (irrespective of what anyone else say's, it sounds do'able ... but with some cost of course). I'd advise anyone keen on the China route, to get in contact with him ASAP. To Sheen: If you are able to make the November meeting, it'd be good to meet ya ....

Len
