If ADAC is no go, two other possibilities:
UK Automobile Association (AA) will issue a carnet for non-UK residents and non-UK vehicles, which is probably the most 'casual' of the auto associations that we're aware of!
You can't reach the carnet department via their website, but you can reach them at +44-1256-493753 or by E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
. They can fax the application forms to you, but will require originals to be mailed back to them before issuing the carnet, so allow time for that.
Caveat is that the UK AA and RAC will no longer issue carnets for Pakistan or Egypt, so you will have to avoid those countries.
We also know the Dutch ANWB will issue carnets, but not sure if they require the bike and/or the driver to be Dutch.
"...I arranged a Carnet at the Dutch ANWB (AA). The Carnet is valid for a year but we can ask for another one just before the end of the first one. This will only cost us administration costs (NLG 265,- for a 25 page carnet) and the "guarantee-money" (NLG 4000,- for a Unimog 404 of 1963) will stay on their account."

Maarten, I surmise from an earlier post of yours, that the Dutch carnet is more expensive than getting it through ADAC, but if that's Stefan's last hope, will they issue to a German with an Indian registered bike?
