Bike rental Northern France

Hi!
I want to go to Northern Europe this fall and visit all the major WWI and WWII sites where Canadians fought (Juno Beach, Dieppe,etc.) I would like to do it on a motorbike if possible (KTM, Honda, BMW) preferably with my wife on the back. I am having a hard time finding bike rentals in that area. Anyone have any contacts or recommendations.

I cannot give you any personal recommendations as we would normally take our own bikes across the channel. A quick look on that interweb finds:

Sounds like a great trip - very thought provoking and something I would like to do.

It's a good area but it's also not a million miles from Vimy Ridge, where the Canadians fought famously during WW1.

Thanks for the bike info. I will make sure I make Vimy Ridge part of the trip as well.
