"No, you can not go to Tiananmen Square with your motorcycle, not even with your guide". But we did it anyway, alone, one early morning before the police started their watchful day. It was a close call though, as you see from this picture. One early-bird tourist policeman came running over to us at 5:30 am and advised us that we better get going or we would be in big trouble. So we did, but that was only after taking a few pictures to proof that we did ride to Tiananmen Square. The Forbidden City with huge portrait of Mao is in the background.
