Great RR, thanks.
It's really nice to read about that part of the world. I hope it opens up a bit more during the coming years, in terms of all the police formalities. But with all the chinese there...

Anyways thanks again, it was a great read!

WOW Stephan, I read the whole thing for a second time again now, what an awesome read, and what an awesome experience you guys must have had.

Thank for sharing you photos and words, and don't worry you are not such a crappy writer, I loved your story!!

One day when I am big and can ride a bike properly I want to do a trip like this!!

SGB - considering most people trailer their bikes to the border anyway, would this trip be better or worse on a 250?
