    I call the preparation the "3 F".
    1.Fill the tank with petrol.
    2.Fill my pockets with money.
    3.Fill my bag with clothes.

    The 3XF......

    Ok, the solution that may work better indeed is to send my motorcycle to Xining, to fly there, go around the lake and ride back to BJ (or either way, to ride from BJ to Xining and send the bike back by cargo).

    It will result in 2600-2700 km of ride in 10-12 days (instead of 5000km+ if i ride both ways) which looks Ok-ish from what I hear.

    Now will think about whether to take north and go through Inner Mongolia (Bayan Nur) or use this opportunity to stop by Xi'an (haben't been there before).

    The latter route (I assume) might be more busy in terms of traffic and less scenic but happy to hear other opinions!

    Both routes created avoiding highways and toll roads.

    North route is better more senic.
    I will be Baotou from the 3rd August onwards till after the weekend.
    Big bike race day arranged by CFmoto so I been told.
    Many rides from our local Longkou club are going so I think it a big meet.

    Shipping is costly and you may have damage on the bike.
    IMO ride Kent both ways.

    Alexey, you may consider another option: ride to Xining, have few days here, then leave bike in some place for storage for 1-2 months. then come here again, for example, in end September, take bike, ride it from here down to Sichuan or whenever else during National holidays (first week of October)

    storage here isn't a big deal, I know at least two places where your bike will be safe till you come back.

    I am considering to make ride from Xining to Chongqing at the end of September to visit CIMA 2017 (motorcycle exhibition).

    As prince said the northern route is the better option, but I would go from Hohot to Datong and then side roads followed by the G109 to Beijing.
    Before you reach the Beijing mountains I would avoid the G road. Shortly before the mountain area start get on the G109 and you get hours of roller coaster
