Americas is my opinion. Look at all the ADVers you'd get to meet (wait, did I seriously just use that as a selling point) Utilizing the "Tent Space Thread" in the trip planning area of ADVrider could save you some dough and help you to meet some great ADVers who could show you around their respective area. The tent space map thread could save you and your GF and huge chunk of change on your trip and really improve the experience.

Hardest part will be crossing the borders on a bike purchased in one of the other countries .... Being China is in Asia .... No license no riding across the borders .... Some of these countries will ask for tariffs to be paid .... Special import licenses for the bike etc.... Bicycling no problem... Motorcycle or scooter ... Different animal.
We discussed Beijing to Thailand and Vietnam .... It was much cheaper and easier to get their and rent.

You can do China on your foreign plated motorcycle. But not without arranging a guide months in advance, and paying BIG time. Burma used to be not possible, but is now (slowly) going the China way on this.

Almost all other Asian countries you should be able to go with the bike, using either Carnet de passage, or another temporary import permit. No import taxes & duties must be paid, unless the bike overstays the allowed time limit.
