    Any chance of renting a bike in Marsh Harbor, not a scooter but a real bike that i can cover some ground on.

    I have found some scooter rentals, but i cant even find a real bike dealer ship. Maybe they dont allow bikes over 100 cc.? I was going to try to chek out some of the blue holes and also check out some of the non tourist places.

    You'd be better off renting a boat, not much land to use a bike on.

    I stayed in Treasure Cay for 10 days .It's on The National Geographic 10 most beautiful beaches in the world list. We explored a different island, went deep sea fishing ,and snorkeled every day . Try to go to Hope Town, Turtle Cay and Nippers. http://www.nippersbar.com/

    I don't see why bigger motos wouldn't be allowed on Abaco. I've known people that owned MV Augustas and KTMs on New Providence and Paradise Island. There may not be any dealerships on that island, but maybe people import them from elsewhere.

    Don't know about sizes allowed but there are some advertising benches near the marsh harbor airport parking lot. One of those benches is sponsored by the local m/c and has their phone number on it. Try calling them, they would know.
