    I have another trip to Oz pending in November and am planning to arrive a bit early to get in some two wheel time and would like to find a place to rent a R3R if possible. Based on where I'll be travelling to visit Customers, I would likely stay a weekend early in Melbourne or Brisbane or, as a somewhat lower probability, Sydney or Perth.

    Would appreciate any recommendations on where to rent a ride for a day or two and, if it works out, maybe a spot to link and have a beverage :)

    Probably have trouble trying to rent a R3 but I am sure I could sort something out if you are in Brisbane...

    Funnily enough, I have tried looking in Aus, USA, and in UK. I couldn't find a single place that would hire the R3. I was talking to another guy on the forum, and it is actually cheaper to airfreight your own bike to Canada and then roam free!! But only if on holiday for 3 weeks or more in Canada/USA! Bizarre:confused::confused::roll:

    Aussie Biker Dave used to rent Rockets but I can no longer find his website. I've met Dave twice at Rocket salvos in California and Texas but apparently he's no longer in business under that name. . Dave rented Rockets as well as the other standards.

    Dave was in Queensland and there is now an Aussie Biker Tours and Rental where he used to be around Noosavile so I'm wondering if it is the same guy. No Rockets but other great bikes to rent.

    Very generous Les, I will be in touch after I firm up my arrangements! As I'm getting ready to head out in about 3 C, I'm look forward to a change of environments :)

    I sent an inquiry and received a nice note back from Tim who bought the business from Dave. Information below with type of bike for rent at the bottom link.

    For some reason the booking link doesn't copy as a link but it works if pasted into your browser. Tim doesn't seem to have a Rocket but a very nicely appointed T-Bird. He does have a nice inventory of other bikes though.
