    Here is a video was shown on Chinese TV last year.
    Just a quick translation on what is said.

    1. The reporter talks about seeing a Motorbike paying and entering a Toll road.
    2. She then asked people about are motorbikes allowed on the Toll roads?
    All say NO.
    3. A lady who works at the Tollbooth says ok for motorbikes.
    4. No sign to show Motorbikes are not allowed
    5. The policeman tells the reporter, YES motorbikes are allowed but must stay in the right-hand land can't go slower than 50km and no faster than 70km and must wear a crash helmet.
    6. The big bike riders say all ok but you have to pay same as a small car.

    The Toll road report was for Hubei province and the reporter closes by saying if this is legal in Hubei province why not in other Provinces ??

    Seems to be except BJ its all time avtry and error thing. In Tisnjin region they let you on partly, same in Hebei province.
    I would be interested what they do when I take my 4 wheel ATV without license plate. Have never seen that they stopped a car without plate. .... And I have also 4 wheels :-)

    In China there is a law against everything.
    It only matters what laws they actually enforce.

    Tollroads.... could be any road that requires payment for use (toll). In theory most toll roads allow motorcycle passage.
    Expressways... restricted high speed motorways that require varying amounts of payment depending on distance and vehicle type, as well as restrictions or vehicle type/access.

    This has been discussed ad nauseam in multiple threads.

    I go back and fourth between Jilin and Liaoning province all the time and We have no issues with motorcycles on the toll roads, expressways or freeways. Completely ok!

    Also, when I studied for my license test it also said motorcycles were allowed and had to stay to the right hand lane etc..
