Motorcycle rentals in France?
This July I am hoping to take a motorcycle vacation to see my parents in France.
I have done some Google searching and all the prices I see are WAY out of line. 1200 Euros a week with limited mileage is not a financial possibility.
(I can rent a nice car for 1/4th that.)
Does anyone else know of a place that rents morotcycles?
Thanks in advance.

Long time rentings are very expensive for bikes. A week is okay, a month is like 4,000 US dollars.

If you stay long, consider shipping your bike

Check the BMWMOA Global Touring - Touring in Europe web site. Scroll down to rentals.
You can get an R1200 GS in Frankfurt for €510 for the first week and €420 per week thereafter with 2500 kms per week included. Check out Allround Motorradvermietung.
All the best,

This is may be due to the fact that France is in Europe among the one with the highest ratio of accident/bike or car and also because of a high mileage/year/bike or car (largest country in western Europe).

I recently rented a bike for a week from a company called Moto-plaisir who are based in a town called Annemasse which is just on the French side of Geneva (and close to Geneva int airport). The pickup location is very convenient for trips in the French, Swiss or even Italian alps.
I had a great experience with them. the bike (650 GS) was good, reasonably priced and it came with a full set of panniers and GPS loaded with a great 6 day route through the alps
it is a small company that is quite flexible with pickup times (ie not closed at weekends like a lot of other hire companies).

If you feel like a ferry ride from Ireland, I can set you up with something cheap and just leave it at your parents house.
