Hi all from Central Asia.
From here our plans were to go through China but the visa situation is almost impossible now with the Olympics looming. The country is closing its doors to foreigners so it's time for a backup plan. Our hope now is to ride north through Kazakhstan in July and then east to Vladivostok through Russia in August / September, from where we can catch a ferry to Japan.
Can anyone recommend some good reading on this route?
We've already seen the excellent www.bikerussia.com and www.2wheels.org.uk
