Isreal rentals

I am being told that the Harley dealer in Tel Aviv has rental bikes. I don't know the details, yet. hdisrael@bezeqint.net

So I spent today lurking in some motorcycle shops in Tel Aviv. Here is what I found on rentals. Scooters are easy, and fairly reasonable. Even up to a Berghman class. about 250 shekels a day. Thats about $60 USD or so. A place called "Motogo" 103 Hertzel St. They had a BMW1200 RT for about 350 euro per day, and a Tenere for 250 euro per day. That includes insurance for everything except the bike. You are responsible for the bike if damaged,stolen etc. Tele # 054-2223123 www.motogo.co.il
The Harley place rents also. They had a Sportster for $120 USD per day, and something else for $180 per day and a Dyna for $200 per day. Again with the required ins, but not covering the bike, 2 day minimum rental. They are @ 54 Hamasger st. 03-5611880 Both said they would try to find riding gear for you to use, but you should think about bringing your own. The Harley place said you should reserve it in advance. The KTM store said they knew of no one renting dirt bikes. Most said they knew of no rentals other than scooters, I just found these by walking in and asking.

Hey (my first post!)

I live in Jerusalem and ride an F650 classic, if you promise to treat her right and get your own insurance I'll rent her out. Israel is the best place to ride!

I hadn't seen that before. thanks. Sadly I will only have 1 or maybe 2 more trips to Israel. I wanted to do some riding there, but never was able to secure a bike, and preferably someone to ride with. When I'm there, I only have one day, so it's hard to get it all in.

Bike Rental in Israel

I attach a link to an article (in Hebrew) that appeared on a popular Israeli motorcycle website named fullgaz.
It lists all current available options for scooter/ bike rental in Israel (dated to beginning of February 2010):
http://www.fullgaz.co.il/xpages/article.php?i=47385

I've attached it although it is in Hebrew, as in most cases a question about that topic will be answered by an Israeli forum member, so this information might come in handy.

Cheers and ride safe,
Keyboard Rider

Keyboard, thanks for that info. I'll be in Yerushalayim all of July. Figured I'd do without a ride for a month, but this gives me something to think about.

UK ADVrider Simon didn't have any trouble taking his UK registered bike into and out of Syria and Jordan.

Neither did the two blokes with two Transalps and a stuffed pink pig.

If there is a KTM dealer there I would assume there is some offroad riding available. Curious as I have been offered a job in T-A for 1 year and being a dirt bike junkie would need my regular fix.

Hey Slideways,

There is a KTM dealer in IL.
The guy that runs for him the show also has a blog:
http://kruvi.net/
His name is Tomer Baram and (copied from his blog) that’s his email address:
kruvi1200 AT yahoo DOT com

Try to contact him. He can inform you better than I can about all the ins and outs of the legalities.

A Hebrew written forum exists as well:
http://www.tapuz.co.il/Forums2008/Fo...orumId=363&r=1

And there are some other, private forums dedicated to that issue.

There exists an off-road scene in Israel, however it is ILLEGAL to own a true motocross bike. You can only own registered bikes (i.e. your bike has to have all the “legal” accessories, and a license plate). Stupid as it sounds, that’s the situation.

Good luck,

Keyboard Rider

Or you could try PMing him here.

About the registered, roadworthy bike thing - yes, it is true, but the indicators, horn, lights and so on only have to be on when the bike is having its yearly check, once you are out of the shop so long as you trailer it to your ride you can keep it as you like.
