Also, to be clear - there are plenty of not-that-adventurous riders over here in Germany, too. For every IB person, there are probably twenty five or fifty or a hundred people with a bike in their garage that gets 500kms a year. So 300/day is probably a fair average.

Just did it a few weeks ago
I rented an R1200RT and R1200GS for about 6 days combined in the SF area, but toured down to San Luis Obisbo and up to Mendocino, and over to the Sierras. I put on about 1700 miles From Monday through Saturday, and rented from California Motorcycle Adventures. It was a great experience, both dealing with them and doing the ride. The idea was a vacation combined with an extended test drive to see whether I should even think about a new BMW, or whether my collection of airheads from 55-76 is good enough.
However, I fear that week of rental may end up costing me far more than the 200 per day I paid.
It was the most fun I have had with my clothes on in a while.
If you look at it as a way to get a really long test drive in, it was definitely worth it.
For just transportation, it's hard to beat a car rental per mile when you have unlimited mileage.
