Please give them a call, but I also suggest you to google something like: MOTORCYCLE RENTAL HOUSTON
PM me if you need any assistance here in Houston
Good luck bro! Удачи!
Я внимательно посмотрел в гугле Неясно, почему аренда мотоцикла на 3 недели стоит почти столько же, сколько покупка. Например http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/1680535521.html
Ну, а помощь нужна только в вопросе поисков мотоцикла и покупки шлемов, спасибо!

No, I think new bike is not our choise May be something like this http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/1680535521.html

i think getting an used bike is a good choice but for a piece of mind the rental is a much better option, usually full coverage insurance is included on the rental fee.

1. I'm sure that the insurance question is gonna be a huge issue for you here in the U.S. because you even don't have the U.S. drivers license and you don't have any credit history...
2. You can pay for the full insurance coverage which includes the road assistance and the thief protection for a rental bike...
Those two are very good points to keep in mind if you are going to travel for such a long distance here in the U.S...

It's understandable. I have international driving license and full insurance will buy necessarily. Thanx for reminder But if I buy bike, I will buy same insurance And now question is - rent or buy? What is more conveniently?

i wouldn't really trust a $3000 bike to go cross country, i think when you are on vacation, time is very essential.... you don't want to have down time because your bike broke down in the middle of nowhere late at night. IMO if budget is top priority i would suggest to stay home and save a few bucks. When i go on vacation i want piece of mind.... thats what i worked so hard for, so i can fully relax and enjoy the trip without having to worry about potential mechanical problems! its just like buying a used car, what you are actually buying is another guy's unsolved problems.... just some common sense

Probably so, but why take a chance on your vacation?

When you rent a car/bike and things break down, the rental company is liable for all of the cost involved in putting you back on the road asap.

When you pick a used bike and it breaks down on you in the middle of nowhere, all of the cost involved are most likely coming from you own pocket (toll truck, parts & labor, accommodations while the bike is being fixed), nobody is going to bring you a replacement bike and send you on your way to a great vacation.

You're buying the wrong brand then

My $1600 bike just clocked over 60k miles without a hitch with me abusing it for the past 3+ years.

you just got lucky..... i mean obviously we have very different opinions when it comes to purchasing a bike.... if a $1600 bike is all you can afford then why even bother to go into brands? you know that very few bikes would fall into that price range right?

I dont want to post this thread as it serves no purpose to the OP, he was asking a simple question of rent vs purchase and sell.... unless you have something helpful to contribute, why even open your mouth at all?

within a 20-30 day period it may be difficult to sell the bike in another state.

you would have to explain the out of state registration, also consider the bike likely wont be registered in the seller's name but the previous owners.

Rental still looks like the best option out of convenience, not cost efficiency. However, when renting in Houston doesnt the bike need to be returned to the dealer it was rented from?
