Re: Best Europe Touring

If you are thinking about Spain (great roads, food & folks) I'd recommend IMT

I've taken two of their tours (Pyrenees & Morocco) and their bikes are no more than 2 years old.

Re: Best Europe Touring

If you will be traveling self-guided, then I would heartily recommend renting a bike from Stepfan Knopf in Heidelberg. He is super to work with and can be reached at www.knopftours.com. I rented an R1200RT from Stepfan in July, 2008, and was very pleased. The RT is great for riding in the Alps. I wouldn't consider riding an LT due to some of the issues with switchbacks.

Hi Joe,

I do have to say Ireland of course. Here's a couple of links: http://www.motorental.ie/ and http://www.bikeireland.ie/travel_.htm#HIRE to give you a start point for some surfing.
