Well, being that many times to Ladakh I am sure you understand the risks of AMS. As usual, I will recommend that you stay in Leh for one day for acclimatization. Secondly, Leh to Turtuk back to Deskit is too too long and not so useful. Best will be to avoid Turtuk or add one day.

You can easily do Tso Kar to Sarchu or Jispa instead of just Pang which is too close now that the roads are built. You have to take care of the fuel the moment you leave for the big circuit of Nubra and Changthang. I hope you are managing it by carrying in the Thar.

Finally, Delhi rented bikes will not be allowed for sightseeing in Ladakh

Oh okay if I tell them that is my bike how will they get to know..Because I would be taking a Whiteboard bullet.
Also will Sach Pass be open after June 10th?

I believe that Sach Pass will also open by mid of June as there is less snow. Regarding the bike, you may get away with it if unchecked but if checked they want the RC of the bike to be in your name or name of the father/mother/wife with whom you can prove the relationship by showing some ID.

I will recommend following but please keep in mind that since you are taking all the direct routes, you need to carry enough fuel or rely on black fuel. I will suggest carrying a backup vehicle if budget is not a constraint.

Day 1: Delhi to Bairagarh
Day 2: Bairagarh via Sach Pass to Killar
Day 3: Killar to Kishtwar
Day 4: Kishtwar to Sonamarg
Day 5: Sonamarg via Zojila Pass to Lamayaru
Day 6: Lamayuru to Leh
Day 7: Leh rest day and permits, park the outside rented bikes and rent Leh bikes
Day 8: Leh via Khardungla Pass to Diskit (tank up fuel and carry along with you)
Day 9: Diskit via Agham-Shyok Rd to Pangong (tank up fuel and carry along with you)
Day 10: Pangong to Marismak La to Hanle (get fuel in black, if available)
Day 11: Hanle via Photi la Pass to Umling la Pass bk to Hanle (get fuel in black, if available)
Day 12: Hanle to Tso Moriri to Leh, return bikes (get fuel in black, if available)
Day 13: Leh to Sarchu
