Motorcycle rentals (non-harley)

Are there places that rent sport bikes? I haven't ridden in awhile and just want to rent one to get my skills back up. I've searched and all I found were Harley rental places. Anyone know of such a place?

1. Select an organization that you want to do a track day with
2. Check with that organization for the hook up

I don't need to rent one. I have plenty. I guess then that there is no "RentMyNinja" type group anymore or Texas Track Bikes Rental (name?)?

I ask because I see a lot of others asking that want to get into track days.

You can rent a track bike?!?! Are they decent bikes or not so much? I'd be WAY more comfortable knowing I was on a rental and could still drive my bike home in one piece. How much is it for a day and what happens if you crash?

That is what most do. Obviously you (nor I) don't know of an active, local track day rental place for bikes.

So...thanks....I guess.

Those are great questions for the rental company.

Well, I rented a trackbike before and I'm sure I could find out all the info I needed via PM, email, or phone call
