Renting motorcycle in Nepal

Hey guys,

Has anyone had any experience with renting a motorcycle in Kathmandu and riding it to other areas like Chitwan and Pokhara and returning say a week later?
I was just in Nepal but it was too brief and I want to go back. I hate buses (get sick) but obviously love riding so wanted to see if I could perhaps ride to Pokhara and Chitwan instead; but after witnessing the traffic in Kathmandu I'm not even certain I'll get out of Kathmandu alive?
What are your thoughts?

There might be something of use here
If it's in the Touratech catalogue then you don't need it

Rented a small 2 stroke many (15) years ago. One of the local gas stations had a few for rent. Forgot how much it was, as I just rented for a few days to ride around the Kathmandu area. Think it was pretty cheap though. I do remember that the ring road around Kathmandu was so polluted with smoke & diesel exhaust I could hardly breathe. Once you got away from the Kathmandu area & up into the higher mountains the air was very clean & the roads I had all to myself. For A great little day ride head up to Bhaktapur & the roads above it.
