Bike rental in France?

Hi all,

The wife and i are planning on visiting the south of France around the last-week of August-first week of September. As much as i'd love to put the Tiger on a ferry from Cyprus, i just don't have the time.

So, if any of our French brethren (or sistren ) could give me some info on renting a 2-up capable motorcycle to see the countryside on during that week, i would be most grateful.

Thanks,
Constantinos

i think Bill may of dropped from rentals. I hope I am wrong, as he seemed a hell of a nice guy. and his personal service is needed.

I'll poke around and see if I can confirm.
update.....I went to his web site , all seems a go. I must be wrong.
