  3. How about Clipstone Yamaha? I know they rent trail bikes, may be road bikes too.

  8. Yup, they do. I rented from them a couple of years ago. They prefer to rent to you for a day or two rather than give you a tester for an hour. Prolly has to be a new Yamaha, though).
    Garners, about a block north of Vic Market, is the main big bike hirer in town.

  9. Garners....apart from them there's nobody I've ever heard of who hires out big-bikes, NOT sporties. Risk too high, cost too high to cover risk and/ or damage done.
    Who'd be stupid enough to out rent a $500+/day big-bore sportie to get it back with $2k worth of shredded tyres/ busted head-bearings and fugged 1./2. gears? And that's just for the start...

  13. Actually Garners had this clapped out VFR750 a few years back that I rented for a day. They have some big naked bikes from memory and HEAPS of Hardleys but don't count on any new R1s or the like.

  18. Lastr i saw said VFR they were trying to sell it, complete with clapped out stickers and all probably. Did look to be a very tired bike and think they were after about $4500 or so from memory.
