    I doubt anyone is in that business. If you turned up at a bike shop and asked around, some individual might rent you one. You would be more likeley to find one in someplace like Dahab- and then you would be near the awsome Sinai riding. I can't imagine wanting to ride around Cairo.

    You should ask the Horizons Unlimated community there.

    Not in Ride Reports, moved to the Mid East forum.

    There's a moto rental outfit in the Sinai, but not in Cairo.

    If you've never been to Cairo, I can tell you it's not a place you want to be on a bike! Riding a taxi is a :yikes experience! :lol3 It's organized chaos! Everyone goes and the accelerator and the horn and interconnected!

    Getting out early on Friday morning isn't as bad. I know lots of the Harley guys get out and ride weekly, but it isn't without risk.
    Here is a website for the guys who offer desert riding and other stuff...

    When are you going to be in Cairo?
