After depositing my passport in Sust, north of Gilgit, Pakistan, I drove towards the Chinese border....The forbidden zone. To make a long story short, I did make it to the border but it was still closed because of snow. As I had already come so far, I took the chance to continue into China. Even though I didn't ride far, I felt good about it. Earlier that year I had learned that a visa to enter China on a motorcycle would have a price tag of $50,000.00. Crazy or what!
