hire/rental

hi guys/girls,

i'm an englishman living close to london and wanting to do a bit of
touring around the usa on a bike. i'm trying to avoid renting
harley davidson bikes as they simply aren't what i like.

i'm looking for a modern gold wing, or preferably an r1200rt
or a k1200lt (i've ridden the rt, and currently own the gs and lt
here in the uk).

my question is: i'm looking at florida or california as a holiday
start point, and would probably put about 1500-2000 miles on
the bike in about 10 days of holiday - does anyone know where
i can rent a bike in these two locations, ideally close to the major
airports where i can get a taxi direct to the rental station...?

i'd also consider buying a bike with a buy-back less
an agreed amount for the mileage etc., is that kind of system
known of in the usa ?

any help in getting my large backside onto a saddle and
touring the usa would be *very* appreciated !!!

cheers, regards, al

San Jose BMW rents bikes and has an LT in their rental fleet. They are a 5 minute cab ride from Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Eagle Rider rentals has locations around the country. http://www.eaglerider.com/

They have a large facility (their US headquarters) in Los Angeles, only a few blocks from LAX airport, and are used to visitors from other countries. They have K1200LTs. Check with them about R1200RTs and Gold Wings - I think they have them too.

Long Beach BMW Motorcycles is where I bought my K1200GT. They are good people. They rent K1200LTs, R1200RTs, and other BMW motorcycles as a BMW-only branch of Eagle Rider. http://www.longbeachbmwmotorcycles.com/

They are very close to Long Beach airport, and a 20 minute drive from LAX when traffic isn't heavy.

Enjoy your visit to the USA!

Welcome to the USA, Al.

You have a lot of choices here, my friend. Southern California is a great jumping off point, especially if you're going to be here in the Summer.

I would talk with Long Beach BMW. I'd say you could make all arrangements in advance. Maybe they could even help you with getting there from LAX (which is approx 15 min's South on the 405 freeway.)

Please email me if you need any help with arrangements in Southern California.

Watch the crazy driver's here. Be safe!

My 2 shillings worth:

Southern Kalifornia anywhere south of Santa Barbara is a traffic nightmare - avoid it all costs. Sorry SOCAL guys....

Highway 1 from there North is a LOT of fun all the way to Victoria, BC and a great place to spend several days. You can make a loop back through the Eastern side of the Sierras. September is your best bet for fog free weather along the coast if you decide on that route. Summer is OK, but there are TONS of RV's, and quite frankly it ruins any opportunity for spirited riding. Don't overlook Death Valley and Yosemite - they are not to be missed! I could easily spend a month on this route and never run out of fun things to see or do. It's THAT good.

A loop from Tucson or Phoenix to the Grand Canyon and SW Utah then back is probably the best riding anywhere in North America. Lots of curves and mountain riding. Make sure you take in Zion, Bryce and Captial Reef Parks, and spend a few days renting a houseboat and/or speedboat at Lake Powell before heading back south. Canyon De Chelly is a must as you work your way back to Tucson. Prime months would be late May or early June to avoid traffic. Late September to Mid October is hard to beat. Be prepared for winter weather at all times. Both seasons will have extreme weather from 100F to 32F no matter which you choose. AVOID it in the summer and winter.

Southern Arizona is pretty darned good if you want to venture out in April or May. Highway 91 is one of the best motorcycle roads anywhere in the US. It used to be known as "666" - The Devils Highway. Perfect for getting away from the crowds, it is extremely remote. Lots of other excellent day rides from Tucson with cool things to see like Kartchner Caverns and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum - both world class attractions, and nothing like them anywhere else.

Iron Horse BMW in Tucson rents what you need - and is the number one rated dealer in the USA for customer satisfaction. I'm sure they can work whatever kind of deal you want. A GREAT bunch of guys.

My best advice is to come here during the "shoulder" seasons - you'll have great weather and avoid the crowds... BTW, Florida is NOT fun on a motorcycle. UGH... Sorry FL guys...

Nothing to apologize about, Ron. Traffic is part of the So Kal experience. It's just one of the many reasons that makes this place such a shit hole. You ain't seen nothing 'til people start driving on the sidewalks!

As many greedy geezers as we have in So Kal, Florida is even worse. Dodging all those incoming "bogies" will keep Al on his toes!

HAHA - yep... I'll probably start in on TEJAS next! - but at least they have Hill Country, Big Bend, great bbq, and beautiful, friendly women.

I'm still pissed at SOCAL since the last time I was there my car (wife's choice, not mine) got sandblasted to the tune of $10K in THEIR desert, my dog almost died ($400.00 at the emergency vet) from eating bird shit on the beach, and someone backed into my passenger door and bolted, another $850.00. Oh yeah, and the "beach house" we rented was right on the 101 in Laguna Beach. Perfect if you like the sound of waves crashing on one side, and the sound of "ricers" on the other! This was while we were on "vacation".

NOCAL makes up for it though.... riding heaven.

I'm a card carrying member of the Metropolitan Tucson Convention and Vistiors Bureau. Please come to Tucson Y'all, visit and spend lots of money - then - GO HOME!!

Except Jay - he can stay.

Hey...

I like Jay and maybe he can stay....but Ron..you know that we have to vote on anybody who wants to stay longer than their Visa/Mastercard credit limit lasts.

Now if Jay brought a nice bribe.......things could change.

Oh My! Why thank you, Ron! BUT, we better put a time limit on it....like say a month? Bad things might start happening....The sun could fall out of the sky. We might go to hell--twice, etc.! Wouldn't want to push it....

Tell us more about your car being "sandblasted." I've lived in Lancaster for 7 years now, complete with high winds much of the time and all my vehicles have to show for it is some hard water stains.

hi guys, that made me smile! you can rest assured you aren't alone.
i also rode a piaggio scooter, and as part of the attempt at immersing myself in the italian experience i started downloading italian driving/riding clips. to be honest there may as well not be a pavement/road delineation in some of their cities as the pedestrians dangerously dodge in and out of the traffic, and the mopeds/scooters/bikes will without a 2nd thought ride up behind a pedestrian on the pavement (sidewalk) and hoot at them to get out of the way - incredible !

as for the air condition, i've been in the situation where i was attempting to land at a small airport in la verne ca, near pomona and was unable to see far enough ahead to make a visual approach to the airport due to the incredible amounts of sulfurous smog
sitting above the airport. no doubt not new to you guys but a surprise to me (london has seen a similar situation occur but with probably only 5% of the severity what i've seen in socal).

anyway, as a follow on to my last post i've found another possibility and that's down in houston texas. i think i found them by clicking a link on this forum! they hire bikes at a more reasonable rate (still bloody expensive when compared to renting a car!) and i have sent them an email which at this moment has received no response but its early days yet, they may be waking up about now...

i'll keep you guys updated as to my intended movements in the usa
and perhaps we can schedule a meet so someone can buy me a beer?
(an old joke, but i keep trying in the hope that one day it'll work)

Crossing over the Arizona border into Kalifornia on I-10 near Imperial. Constant 45 knot winds from the NW. No where to hide, no where to run. I sent in a wind speed report from the nearby Imperial Airport with my claim. The entire front end including the bi-xenon lights, fog lights, grill, hood, right turn signal, lots of trim, right front fender, passenger door and mirror, all four wheels, windshield. This was on a car that was 8 months old.

I've got one thing to say for Mercedes air filters (they brag about how good they are, and for $65.00 a set) - THEY WORK! Here's the sand that was kept out of the engine...

Here's another alternative, in Denver. I've dealt with them, nice people, well-maintained fleet. If you plan a summer trip, it's hard to beat the Rocky Mountains for beauty and great riding.

Starting in Houston (I live in Texas) you'll have a pretty long slog west to get to interesting scenery and roads, and even then what you'll arrive at is desert, desert, and more desert. Of course, you could go northeast from Houston into the Ozarks area, but again, it's a long slog to get out of the flat part.

Obviously, you've never ridden in London then.

Yeah, L.A. traffic can be brutal, but it does tend to keep the whiners away. And we have some of the best roads, weather, and scenery anywhere just minutes away from all that mess.

Sorry for your bad experiences, but if you're not used to the megalopolis mentality then it can be a bit overwhelming. My favorite bumper sticker still has to be "Tourists go home, but leave your daughters."

A beer, mister?! As in only ONE? Negative. In So Kal, it'll be AT LEAST 3 or 4! This may be the armpit of Amerika, but we treat our guests right!

Yea. Those SoCal guys will buy you a Bud light or two, but if you want some GOOD stuff, come on by and share a fridge full of Coronas, Dos Equis (XX), Tecates and a bowl full of sliced limes.

Mexican Cerveza is the way to go !



Oh yea...you'll see a lot more of this guy too !!

just minutes ago i learned there is a possibility that a friend may be in florida at the same time as i'm in the usa, so i may ride out to meet him there on the promise of a freebie stay at his villa to drink a decent bottle of champagne. if he promises a case of champagne i'll definitely go... i'm sending him an email now to ascertain the dates he intends being there. what a nightmare of indecision eh?

cheers al

p.s. did someone mention drinking beer with pieces of lime?
my idea of beer is something warm and dark,
some of the belgian beers brewed in monasteries do the job
perfectly for me.

Oh Alex Mi' Amigo. A cold Cerveza with a lime wedge is what beer is all about.

if you want warm dark stuff you can always drink your oil after an LT oil change.

But...for a light, tasteful, wonderful kick back ( and a cigar to top it off) time. A mexican cerveza is the way to go.

I also have some suds from the Philippines , Tahiti . And if so for reason you prefer oranges, a Blue Moon with a wedge of orange or even (an equal favorite) a large glass of Heffenwiezen with a lemon wedge .

Or..go to SolCal and have a Bud Light


Hey ...I guess as long as your riding an LT...anything after that is survivable.

And the beer wars start now

If we have to lower our standards to Mexican beer, it's Negra Modelo.

Any beer that it FOUND WARM (warm being defined as above 32 degrees fahrenheit), is PROMPTY disposed of and its' possessor beaten like a red-headed stepchild!

Al, with ONLY six posts, you have summed up the BMW riding experience. I couldn't have said it better myself!
