The rules about entering and leaving Turkey by a vehicle or motorcyle are changed since July-2010 according to the agreement with EU.laws.
Now, it does not matter how long your visa or stay in Turkey permission without visa is:
Your motorcycle can stay in Turkey for 6 months and this date date is stamped on your passport page.If you are retired and have a document issued by a Turkish consulate, it is 12 months.

entering with vehicles /substance 4 and 5.
Thats because there are many retired people living in Turkey and all of them have houses,autos or motocycles of their own in Turkey.
You have to get it out of Turkey or leave your motorcycle to the customs area before the time exceeds.
It is not a must that you must be in turkey too while your motorcycle is in turkey.It can stay without you until the permitted date.
1-It must be taken outside turkey or you must extend the time of stay before it exceeds.
2-You must keep it in a safe and trustable place.If someone rides it and makes an accident,
you will be also responsible of this accident.
