    Adelaide Area of Oz

    Hey everyone. I am heading to Oz for business and will be in Adelaide for a few weeks in February. I have been looking for a place to rent a bike over a weekend and can only find people that rent scooters or tractors. I would prefer a motorcycle.

    Anyone know of a place that has Sport, Sport Touring or Dual Sport machines in larger sizes in the area to rent for a couple of days?

    Thanks

    Dan

    Yes, that is really the only place I have found as well. I was hoping for a machine over 600cc since I intend to get my mileages worth. The 800cc cruiser is not an option for me, honestly rather not ride at all than grind the frame every corner on a rental for a weekend.

    Ken, your type of attitude is why people are starting to move away from the MOA. If you don't have anything of meaning or value to say, why post? Your latest comment is about as worthless and nonsensical as your first. And there YOU have it - partner.

    Dan, Dan, Dan.....REALLY?
    Okay so we're not going to be "partners" I guess....But I think you are being a little tightly strung over this.
    Jeez man, the comment was made in jest! A little levity, ya know?
    Merry Christmas Dan.

    I am transferring manufacturing of our solar thermal solar concentrators to a company that is going to contract manufacture them for us for in-country local content projects. I am going to get my team situated and deal with the project timeline so hopefully they don't have to spend more than a month away from home.
