    I am contemplating a trip to La Belle Province next year to visit relatives and would love to rent a motorcycle. A bit of websurfing did not reveal any rentals in Quebec ??????????????? Is this possible ? If any of you fellow canadian riders can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. ............. and If I can return the favour for any of you heading west, feel free to contact me.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Moto Internationale

    6695 RUE SAINT-JACQUES

    I believe there's one other dealer in Montreal that rents, plus there's the Harleys.

    Thnks Richard,
    I'll start saving my pennies now - it would be nice to try a GS1200 :D

    Try Googling for:

    location de moto quebec

    You're bound to get more results by searching in French. Also, try searching in Ottawa, ON - only about 1.5 hours away.

    thanks - will try in french - my wife grew up in Roxboro so she can translate for me.
    Is the road up to gaspe alright for biking in early spring ?

    I'm about 70 km's south of Montreal and I don't trust the weather until at least the 20th of April. I don't think I'd head head up that way before Victoria Day weekend unless I had the time to wait for a freak dumping of snow to melt.

    Only Harleys available for rent in Ottawa.

    Oh, Duh! I should have thought of it earlier, but Google's classifications understand french: do a Google Local search for "category: Motorcycles & Motor Scooters Renting & Leasing" for whichever city in which you'd like to rent:

    +1 on monette sports.(http://monettesports.com) I rented a ducati from them this summer. Good service and very friendly. Avoid moto internationale, worst service I ever had in any motorcycle shop. I wake up during the night to hate them.
