European riding endeavor
Some buddies and i are headed to europe this coming summer. We deceided this past xmas to go and have started planning to make sure it is a good trip. Tenatively we are aiming for Germany, France, Italy and maybe Spain. All four of us are in the service and using Space A tickets for travel to germany. 3 of the 4 of us are avid riders, riding atleast 4 to 5 times a week and the "newbie" still having almost two years experience, we are working on the getting the 4th guy his first bike. My question is, what is the availability of renting motorcycles in Europe? Does anyone out there have prior experience with this situation? Would it be beneficial to ship our own bikes over for the trip or just rent local for site-seeing tours? Are their great difficulties involving US tags and such? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
