I was half considering hiring a motorbike or scooter and doing a two week tour in one of these countries around April. Does anyone have any experience of this? a rough idea of cost? things to watch out for? I fully understand that riding in these countries isn't the same as at home but I'm fairly comfortable with that. Would prefer touring around. Not wildly keen on being part of a huge group of bikes, 4 or 5 is ok but any more isn't so appealing. My wife is (at the moment) quite keen on the idea and will come along as pillion. India is obviously quite big so understand if I'd just be going round a part of it.
Any other suggestions? countries? or something entirely different?
PS We've done some fairly long trips in the past (many over 5K miles) but now we're in our 50's so neither of us is looking to prove anything. I'd prefer countryside rather than cities. April is when we have available so weather might rule out India. It's our 25th wedding anniversary so it needs to be slightly better than touring round the UK in the rain on a bike (we did that for our honeymoon).
