Not great at updating these blog things.
Anyway, have got quite a few people interested in joining me for this trip across China and Tibet. All looking good at this stage. I have been in negotiation with many Chinese tour companies for a while now, and some of the quotes I am getting (after a fair bit of friendly negotiation!) are very doable from my point of view. Not cheap, but worthwhile for the oppurtunity to ride through Tibet. As the other option would be shipping the bike and myself from Kathmandu to Bangkok, I would rather spend the cash in China (and I hate flying!).
Now that the UK and Iranian governments are having a pissing contest; that section of the trip may need re-jigging; but there is always an option.
Anyway I am off for a beer.
