Put your handbags away ladies and start being a bit more constructive and positive to each other.
Just get on your bikes and ride.
Whilst biking far off lands you will remember that the beauty of a trip is in the riding, not the route. So what if they don't let you cross the border, you tried the correct way, so find another way. Pay a truck driver to smuggle your bike across is an option, another is to turn around and keep on going, destination unknown.

WOW. I don't have any advice to give, but i just wanted to comment and commend you for your commitment to adventure! Good for you.
It's the unexpected that creates the greatest memories. I'm sure I'm stating the obvious, but use best judgement, and preparation is your best friend.
I would love you follow your adventures. Please do feel free to email me and keep in touch!
Judgment and preparation is a best friend, I agree.
It is great when a trip goes exactly to plan.
What I think I'm trying to point out is that there is no need to bicker over the details of a trip, biking is about the ride and being at one with nature.
You can plan all you like, but in my experience, when on the road, these plans will always need to change and that shouldn't matter, your still on a bike, in a foreign land, with miles to ride so what's the problem.
I might be sounding a little over romantic, but there is a reason a person wants to ride bikes in far off lands and I very much doubt it's because they enjoy the pre trip planning.
Less bickering more riding.
I'm flying to Nepal this Monday, I am going to buy a 500cc Enfield and hit the road. I will ride in to India and then personally see how restricted Burma is.
Where there is a will, there is a way.
