Question 1: yes
Question 2: I think so. The bridge was repaired a few years ago so it's fine AFAIK.

Do you know if the Austrian Road is currently passable on a motorbike (BMW R1200GS?)
Yes, it's passable, as well as on SUV, all bridges are restored.

Hello! Thank you for the update. Are you saying you can travel the Austrian Road from Zaysan to Katon Karagay without a permit? Do you know if the Austrian Road is currently passable on a motorbike (BMW R1200GS?)
From Lake Zaisan through the village of Markakol to Lake Markakol (Urunhayka), and then along the Old Austrian road to Katon-Karagai - this route does not require any permits. I took this route in August 2020. Not far from the village of Markakol, the road passes very close to the border, 20 meters, but there are no checkpoints. There is a border post on the road to Lake Rakhmanov, permission is needed there. See photos and videos, please.

"If the time is right, you can visit extra-terrestrial landscapes at Kiin Kerish and Zhanytas with a guide (because you can easily get lost)." https://caravanistan.com/kazakhstan/nor ... thern-road

Yes, Kiin Kerish is a fantastic place that is located about 15 kilometers north of Lake Zaisan. Kiin-Kerish is clearly visible from the asphalt road R-147, from the road to the object is also only 15 kilometers. It is quite difficult to get lost there. A 4x4 vehicle is highly desirable. No pass required to visit this place.
