My wife and I are traveling to the Blue Ridge parkway in late May for a little honeymooning, and would like to rent a motorcycle for about 4 - 5 days. I currently own both a 2005 R1200GS and 2009 K1200LT, which we ride extensively when it's not -20 deg and icy outside.

I've looked for rental shops, and have not had much luck finding anything in North Carolina. I would appreciate any help from those of you in this area.

NOTE: Although I would love to rent a BMW, I realize I may have to settle for something less.

Thanks.

There's a new bike rental shop in Greenville, SC - 1 hr. to BRP the fast way, 1.5 hrs. to BRP the fun way. He has at least one Beemer for rent. Let me know if you're interested; if so, I'll get you his name and phone number.

I am not sure where you would like to ride but my wife and I rented an R1200RT in Richmond VA. We booked through Ad-MoTours but they are also an Eagle Rider dealer. The bike was ready on time and spotless. There was a GS available for rent too.

It was about an hour and a half to the BRP on the highway.

IIRC, Eagle Rider has a facility in Knoxville, TN.
