Yeah, I was thinking the money you would spend on a rental bike would buy you some decent luggage, a set of highway pegs, a king and queen seat, and a whole lot of hotel rooms.
You get to keep the luggage and seat as well.

But I am biased...

I know where there is a famous 07 Tiger that might be available to rent. Only has a about 15k on it, runs super and the guy who owns it wont even know I rented it to you.

I would and will tour the country on a Bonneville but not with my wife on the back. She couldn't do it on any motorcycle. She's good for no more than 4 days on a bike as is most women (not all).
