Tips on Renting a Motorcycle
Selection -- It's best that you rent from a shop which allows you to choose from a varied selection of motorcycles. In the event that your rented motorcycle will malfunction, the shop will surely be able to send you a replacement unit immediately.
Support and Services -- If there are documentation needs for you to take care of before being able to rent a motorcycle, is the shop willing and able to help you take care of these requirements?
Price -- Lastly, always compare prices and rates before making the final decision of where you're going to rent a motorcycle.
Using and Driving a Rented Motorcycle Out of Town or Abroad Always make sure that you have obtained the necessary license and other documentations before renting out any motorcycle. Laws regarding use and driving motorcycles after all varies from state to state (or country to country for that matter) so you may need to take additional tests even if you're already a licensed motorcycle driver back at home.
Don't forget to ask about insurance. Again, insurance requirements depend on where you'll be using your rented motorcycle so you may also need to obtain additional but temporary insurance to be able to legitimately use a motorcycle on foreign roads.
Familiarize yourself with traffic and driving rules and regulations for motorcycles at your destination.
Clean your rented motorcycle regularly and treat it with care to avoid paying penalties later on. If, however, something still happens with your rented motorcycle, don't attempt DIY repair unless you're professionally qualified to do so or it's an emergency.
