    Hmmm, decisions decisions... Regarding the fuel tanks. I actually just ordered a 3L and 5L one with rotapax style mounting(310 on taobao with clips), then refunded.. obviously on my bike I need to keep weight right down. I'm considering a 7 litre bag..180 yuan. Would be easier to store on the bike when not in use.. Just roll it up.... But I just can't imagine the people at the petrol stations in China agreeing to fill one of these up.

    Plus.. Cue advice about my turning into a human fireball... China made.. Safe? Advisable? Does anyone use them? I saw an Aussie guy who crossed the desert there with a 20L similar bag.. But probably a foreign made one..

    About the tent, well I found a light back-packer tent in decathalon..999 yuan a two man tent. As I'm traveling in spring/summer should be okay with a decent sleeping bag.

    To add information to the above.. My plan is to take the North West road from kangding in Sichuan to yushu in Qinghai then probably up via tingri to Xining. My bike only has an eight liter tank from the factory.

    If you want decent quality camping gear, take a look to Naturehike product line. It's Chinese brand, not bad quality at all. My workmate bought couple of tents and some sleeping bags from them - completely satisfied
