buying a bike in Asia

Hi everybody !

I will be in china in august 2014, and I forecast to come back in France by motorbike, riding through Mongolia, Nepal, Kazakhstan, kirzigstan, Russia, Ukraine ...
However, I've heard that it's almost impossible to get the motorbike registered under his own name without a post address (in the country where I will buy the motorbike).
So I was wondering if someone knows the required papers to buy a motorbike, and to ride it through all the boarders ?
And does anybody know if a company provides the registration and the carnet ?

Thank you !!

Mongolia, Nepal, Kazakhstan...? Did you look at the map, dude... . ?!?

The only carnet country on that list should be Nepal. And it is bordering Tibet, so expect it to be very complicated to get there from China. IF you would somehow get your motorcycle into Nepal, and wanted to ride back to Europe from there, then you´d certainly need a carnet. But if you stay north from Nepal, India, Pakistan and Iran, I don´t think you will need it at all. Carnet for a bike you´ve bought in China, that could be tough.

How to find & buy a bike, that´s up to the challenge of a big trip, and to register it on your name, and ride it (legally) in China, these could be the hard bit on that plan... but sorry I´m no expert on those subjects.
