    Planning a week long alps ride for next spring for 6 or 7 guys and looking for a good bike rental outfit in munich. Been looking at Admo as they seem to have many bike choices.
    Has anyone used them?

    Did a tour with them a number of years ago. Wanted to try out the new Yamaha FJR 1300 when they first came out. They were the only ones that could get me that bike, a new one at that. Also have rented from Allroundrent, Munich, mostly BMW's if memory serves me. Have a great ride !

    A friend rented from Motorad Maier and was quite happy with them.

    My son and I are planning oa trip at the end of May and are also looking for bike rental in Munich. I'm considering F800GS's because of price and size. The plan right now is to swing through Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

    More than enough bike. Especially if you're thinking about riding in the mountains vs. blasting back and forth on the Autobahn.

    What you want is low-end torque and quick steering. You will appreciate this on the first tight, uphill, right-hand hairpin with traffic coming down in the other lane.

    Expect to average about 35 MPH over the course of the ride, and 150-175 miles per riding day. Seriously.

    Some years May can be a bit too early - and it is likely (probable) many of the headline high passes will still be closed. June - mid to late most years, but you are dealing with the weather in a mountainous region.
    It isn't a problem as when you are there, their alternate number is seemingly endless.
    Assuming you are going to ride good roads.
