Bike rentals?

Ack! I'm jammed for time so the 1,200-mile ride from my home to Ouray is looking tough.

Anyone know about renting a bike in Denver? Arizona? Las Vegas? Salt Lake?

Trouble is, all I can find are Harleys and Buell Blasts.

Baldy,

You can fly into PHX and use one of my bikes. You break it, you buy it.

Cruise America rents a fleet of Honda motorcycles, including XR650L's at some locations.

Edit: it looks like Cruise America now only rents Gold Wings??? You may want to call as there used to be VFR's, BLackbird's, ST's etc available.

Check under the tab of "sporting units".

I was actually talking about this with someone today. I would love to make CO, but I can't spare the travel time from NJ to CO both ways. Work just isn't going to have it. Flying there and renting is a possibility, but I'm guessing most everything is full up by now anyway. Fsck it.

Still, if you find any good source of bikes, maybe post it?

Just went through Ouray and Gunnison. I did see a motorcycle shop in Gunnison that looked mostly dirt friendly. Check in the yellow pages and give a call. Gunnison is just north of Ouray on highway 550. They even have an airport!!!

Great offer, Motozilla. Thanks!

I actually found a rental from Tourbikes.com (thanks, Jabba), so I'll be riding down from Denver on Friday morning, getting distracted by the sights along the way, returning Sunday.

Got Ad-Mo tours to pick up the phone once but couldn't get an answer or return call.

Only problem is, I ended up with a BMW 1200c -- the cruiser. Nachtflug is gonna be pretty uncomfortable riding bitch on the back of that.



I'm gonna see about renting a dirt bike locally for Saturday.

See ya'll there!

One of the guys here is taking his trailer up so if he has room I may have a spare I can part with for a time. Looking forward to see you all.
