You need a special permit for the motorbike, as Iranians are only allowed to ride bikes with less than 500 ccm, IIRC.

The visa situation for Iran has improved a lot over the years, it is a lot easier now to get a visa than it was a few years before.

Iranian fuel is very cheap, but also quite dirty. Best find a way to cope with it - filter, using an old bike, etc.
