Hi. I think you just contacted me on FB.
The cost is $3,500 per vehicle/person including accommodation. Ideally we will be a group of 8 vehicles, maybe one or two more depending on demand. We enter China on 31st August so that we are out of China and into Laos before the Chinese "golden week" holidays start. 29 day (+1 day contingency) crossing via Xinjiang, Tibet and Yunnan.
Cheers.

Cheers.

Hello all.
We are getting close to the deadline for signing up for this trip. Any more bikes or 4 wheelers who want to join the 7 of us already committed?
Cheers.

Happy to provide additional details. Spread the word and ride safe!

So does that mean that quote mean a motorcyclist on a foreign non-chinese registered bike could ride it in sync while the larger convoy and traverse China on his own bike for $3,500?

@SeniGreg. That was the all inclusive price we paid; but it was by no means a "convoy". Outside of Xinjiang province, we were free to ride each day as we wished. With others or alone; we had a destination hotel to aim for, but each member of the group were free to choose their own route to get there.

@safadeza. Trip successfully completed; and very enjoyable it was too. Nobody on the trip did a blog (as far as I'm aware), but Olli (who was on the trip) has a YouTube channel (although he hasn't comprehensively covered the China leg of his trip as yet) @ollituomas.
I would do the trip again in a heartbeat. Loved it.

Also Legin's Log on Facebook has posted stuff about the trip.

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
