Where to hire sportbikes in Houston?

Hi

Trying to find a company that'll rent me a big sports bike (or *cough* non-cruiser) for a week while I'm on vacation this Feb.

Tried Steel Horse Rentals but they've either closed (or are on vacation themselves). Not responding to emails and the phone appears out of service.


Thanks!

Charlie

Steel Horse friends, it has been a lot of fun providing motorcycle service and rentals to all of you from around the world. We are sad to announce that we will be closing our doors on November 15th. We will be liquidating our motorcycle fleet, all shop supplies, tools, helmets, parts, and accessories. If you are in the Houston area, swing by and make an offer. We will continue to sell parts and accessories online. Hope to you see you one last time.
