They pick their equipment with care, and they plot for tours in places where motorcycles are welcome.

Hello,

My wife and me would like to spend a month in Costa Rica by motorbike, and I was wondering what possibilities you offered for renting a bike for 1 month?

We are looking at an enduro bike of minimum 600cc, equipped with a top case and lateral cases, that can take a passenger.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards,
Henry Gerin

That’s amazing riding a bike all that way. I would just fly in and hire a bike when I arrive. But then I don’t like long road trips.
