    here is a thread with a few pics from my trip
    As far as I know that China do not allow 2 hand vehicles to export to other Country so you cannot get a ATA if you say so.

    Well if you really want to do so, you can pay for the deposit for the bike(about half price of your bike) and then go.

    You cannot get your money back and the bike probably can not be registered in other country.

    I will have to look into this, as this can be a major show stopper. Not planning to return the bike to China, but I can get it registered in South Africa as a personal vehicle, so technically not an export. Definitely not willing to pay a deposit and lose it.

    I did make contact with a shipping agent to look into sending it straight to SA, but they need a certification from Benelli that I won't copy the technology on the bike. WTF?

    What was the experience of other folk who has actually done a trip like this? Prince 666?

    What makes people believe that the ATA deposit won't be paid back when you re-enter China?
