    Hi all,

    The wife and i are planning on visiting the south of France around the last-week of August-first week of September. As much as i'd love to put the Tiger on a ferry from Cyprus, i just don't have the time.

    So, if any of our French brethren (or sistren :lol3) could give me some info on renting a 2-up capable motorcycle to see the countryside on during that week, i would be most grateful.

    Thanks,
    Constantinos

    i think Bill may of dropped from rentals. I hope I am wrong, as he seemed a hell of a nice guy. and his personal service is needed.

    I'll poke around and see if I can confirm.
    update.....I went to his web site , all seems a go. I must be wrong.
