    Does anyone know of a good motorcycle rental company in Naples? I wanted to do a one day rental to do a day trip to Amalfi coast.

    Thanks @glitch_oz — we'll already be in Naples by the time we're looking for a rental. Will update the thread if I find something of value.

    If you find any in Naples, that would save me a train ride to Pompeii.

    Also, if you figure out how to get Motorent to respond, I'd like to know. The email on their website has not been successful for me. I may just get up at 3am and call them, but who knows if anyone there speaks English. On email, I can use Google translate.

    Have you had any luck finding a motorcycle rental shop in Naples?

    I tried calling Moto Rent in Pompeii (about 4:00pm and 4:30pm Pompeii time). I called 2 different numbers; the one on their website, and the one given by Google Maps. Nobody answers one of them, and the other goes to a message saying something about "telephono" with a number not long enough to include an area code, all in Italian.

    I have still not received an answer to my emails, and their "contact us" feature on their website does not work (shows error message).

    I see nothing indicating they have gone out of business, but they are completely unresponsive. Weird.

    I haven't had any luck, but mainly because I haven't actually contacted anyone yet! I think we've decided that we'll train it to Praiano and then just rent a little scooter once we're there. The logistics of stopping off in Naples just to try and get a bike organised have proven a bit overwhelming for our limited capacity for hardship.

    Scooters have been a popular rental item for tourists for years. Often the renters have little or no experience, but the "how hard can it be" seems to kick in when the sun is shining, and there are a brazillian 14 yr old kids swarming around.

    What the tourists don't know is that they grew up riding like this, mama was probably a bit heavier and almost certainly carrying home the shopping and riding side saddle. (the helmet must be an aberration for the period).
