Motorcycle Rentals in West Texas?

Greetings Folks!
I'm new to this gig but I appreciate any help you're able to give me.

I will be Texas for a week later this month and just learned yesterday that some of my good friends will be in Big Bend State Park (Presidio, TX) cruising around on their BMW's.

I'm reaching out to all of you to see if you're aware of any outfits that rent dual sport bikes (preferably a Yamaha WR250 or a Yamaha TW as I am vertically challenged and a BMW will be too tall for me) closer to Presidio or surrounding areas. So far the closest I've been able to find a rental place is in San Antonio.

I think this would be a terrific ride but I need to find a bike first! ; )

Thanks for your help and happy holidays!

Just got this email today. Call Dan or Debbie....they are great people.

"Greetings Riders!"

It's that time of the year again for our annual migration to beautiful and sunny Terlingua TX. We'll be operating January 3rd through March 11th, 2013 providing dual sport rentals, maps and routes of the area, and can fix you up with a guide if you like.

Bikes available include Suzuki DR200 and 650, WR250, KLX250, BMW R1200GS, and 4 trusty ole KLR650's.

Where is Big Bend you ask? Situated in the Sonoran desert with 7000' tall mountains along the Rio Grande River in West TX. Fantastic riding can be had as we are just outside the Big Bend National Park and just East of the Big Bend Ranch State Park, both offering many miles of off pavement riding for all levels of riders. We are located in Terlingua, home of the World Famous Chile Cook Off with lots of stuff to see as well as some good eats and really entertaining locals.

How do I get there? Well, naturally you could drive, but even if you live in TX it could still be quite a haul. Plan on flying into the Midland TX airport, we now have a pkg. including 5 days full size rental car, 4 nights lodging, and 3 days motorcycle rental for under $700, based on dbl. occupancy.
CLICK HERE for more info.

FREE T-Shirt for all rentals booked in December!
Call 865-448-6090 to reserve or if you have any questions.

Up coming Dual Sport events in the Big Bend area-
-4th Annual Big Bend Ranch State Park B.U.T.T. Ride, Dec. 29th - 31st.
-6th Annual Uncle's Around the Bend Ride, March 7th - 10th.

VIVA MEXICO! The dates have been set for the LOS(t) AMIGOS COPPER CANYON Tour this February 22nd thru March 2nd. Lance Carnes will guide this tour along with his seasoned compadre Alberto, both are 100% bilingual, residents of Mexico, and have years of M/C travel experience south of the border. There are no chase vehicles or hand holding on this one, just pure adventure, experienced riders only need apply. CLICK HERE for more info or call us at 865-448-6090.

March Moto Madness, 3/21 - 3/24, 2013
