Bike Rental

Hi, I am planning on an Oz tour around March this year. Does anyone have experience or can recomend a reliable rental company?
Nothing fancy, GS 700 or similar with luggage etc.
Any info appreciated.
Les, manila, Philippines

Ps, I should add 2 to 3 months, hopefully all states except Tasmania

Sorry mate, I can't help with the rental but have you thought about buying and reselling, it would probably work out cheaper for a 2-3 month time frame, when you get here I'm about 1 hour east of Melbourne if there is anything I can help out with let me know, I have tent space, workshop etc. And can also show you around the area.

Good guys and I have no affiliation, just rented a few bikes and they service my existing bikes.

Good luck and enjoy!

You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Skipping Tasmania?
Unless you planning to come back and do Tassie just by itself, I'd say BIG BIG BIG mistake

60 days rental is gonna cost over 7000 big ones. Buy a brand new DR 650 for that and throw it away when you are done.

Never used, but have heard good about this mob.
I used to be indecisive, but now I am not so sure!
