Can you move us from July to June and update as below. Thank you:

Start / Finish: Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) to Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) (shipping bikes with ADV Factory)
User: Wildman & Modman, UK
Route: Route is less important than the experience but it's fairly obvious we'll be heading through Mongolia into the Altai, down through Kazakhstan and either straight into Bishkek or, if there's time, ride the Pamir Highway on the way.
Main Dates: mod-June 2015 to early-July 2015
Vehicle: G650X-Country & F800GS (may get swapped out for something smaller)
Notes: Modman and I met up to ride Iceland in 2013 (http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...dic-saga-71950).
Update: Shipping cost plus flights looks like coming in at around £2,000. Not cheap but time is a challenge for us and this way, we don't have to spend a couple of weeks getting there and a couple more getting back.

Sorry for the delay in updating, work has been mental.

If people want to add a link to a blog and / or a photo of them or their vehicle post them below.

Shiv:
This thread is mainly for people heading east, I don't have enough time to look after tow threads so maybe you could start one yourself.

China part:riding and driving

A great list~Sorry to break the queue.

refers to China, you need a professional local tour operator to help. Actually some users contacted with China NAVO Tour already, Welcome to China guys~

but would also provide several notes here:
1. normally China operator needs at least 1-2 months for national permits applying.

2. if motorbike and cars would make into one group, please note the road conditions as motorbike cannot ride on the highway in the most area in China.

3. for age: in principle the rider cannot beyond 60 years old and driver cannot beyond 70 years. But some borders seems not so strictly and good luck~

For more specific info about China riding and driving, plz feel free to contact at abby.zhang@navo-tour.com.

Cheers~
