    I want to tour Baja with my Dad. I'll ride my bike down there, and he'll fly in.

    We dont want to do an organized tour, but need to be able to rent him a bike.

    Ideally a mid sized dual sport.

    Anyone know any places that rent bikes near the border? I'm not sure how easy it is to rent a bike in San Diego and ride it over the border, either.

    Thanks

    NY,
    I live in San Diego and don't believe anyone rents bikes for Mexico. My buddy rented a Harley and we we rode to La Paz no problem but it was on the sly. Good luck.

    Sorry.. There are no bike rental businesses in Baja. The loss potential/lack of insurance is the major factor. You might try Baja Pony Express with a request for a dual sport rental. It is a local forum that covers southern Baja. Good Luck...the weather is great down here!

    Try Motoquest in Long Beach or Advrentals.us in Castaic (north LA). Sorry, don't know of any in San Diego both both of those are only a few hours north of the border.
