New to Oman

My wife has taken a position in Sur, Oman and we will be coming to Oman late in August. As she will have a work/resident visa and drivers license my status, as husband, is unclear. I may have to be in country on 30 day renewable visaís using an international drivers license. That said, I have read all the threads regarding Oman and am interested in touring the country by motorcycle but need more information to get started.

What are the license/registration/insurance requirements to ride in Oman?
Is there a cc cutoff below which there are no requirements?
What are the relative availabilities of 250cc, 650cc, 800cc dual sport bikes and any info on costs? Here at home I currently ride a F800ST but really donít want to get into much bigger bikes. Most of the trips I have in mind are day trips with the occasional to 2/3 day trip, any recommendations on best size?
I cannot find much about riders groups in Sur or Muscat so any information or contact would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all for any help and I look forward to the possibility of meeting fellow riders in the coming year.
