I've got an open Friday and Saturday in London in two weeks and am considering hiring (that's the British word for renting) a bike for a day or two to hit the countryside.

If you ride in the UK and can give me any advice, I'd appreciate it. I found a great site that lists several bike hire firms. Even found the FJR for 80 pounds a day. But I'll likely try a different bike like the V-Strom for only 60 pounds per day.

I love history and really want to tour by some medieval castles and then Stonehenge.

Orestes is David Clarke of Chatham, England. Very fine gentleman, rode Pyrenees with him and Teerex51; and other FJR's.

I'm planning FJR Forum Tour of England, Wales, Republic of Ireland, Ulster and Scotland for the last week of June and first week of July in 2011. Dave C has been a fantastic resource in sending me lodgings information for our FJR Forum routings.

http://www.rental-mo...don_rental.html If by any chance you are renting from AD-MO, they get a solid thumbs up recommendation from me. I've used them in Spain number of times and they're a great MC hire company!!

Even rent old Triumphs, Velocettes, Nortons and Sunbeams from the London Station. Ride a BSA 650 for two days in the English rain with an open face helmet; and you will return to Texas talking like Fairlaner and smoking Brit fags like him too!!

haha Don you are killing me, FYI Stonehenge is a bit of a let down when you see it in person.
If you are going to Stonehenge then Salisbury Cathedral is a must...
