I'd love to know how John travelled China as a long term resident here I know that China does not accept carnets or recognise foreign licenses. I am aware that riding in China from other countries can done legally but is very expensive, with a Chinese governemt tour guide group. Buying a small Chinese made bike and riding it extensively is however very cheap and easy to do.

For more information about riding in China see www.mychinamoto.com or www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/southern-asia/

Riding motorbikes in China

To ride your own motorbike in China you just need to join up with a group of riders planning on crossing China who will apply for all the necessary permits, documents, licenses for you. It's best to have a local guide traveling with you because you'll never understand the procedures for entry, customs etc A group are riding from UK to China in 2011 see; http://www.chinamotorcycletours.com

Tips for riding a Tiger to China

John travelled with Motoexplorers, arranging all of the necessary paperwork and permits for motorcycling across China, as well as the routes and visa advice etc to cross Kazakhstan; http://www.motoexplorers.co.uk For China alone we have a raft of paperwork including clearance from ministry level in Beijing, entry permits for each Province, permission from Police & tourism authorities, army clearance, customs agents for entry & exit formalities as well as all hotel bookings, plus arranging a Chinese motorcycle driving license for everyone once we arrive in China.
