Dr. Frazier: Rent Your Own Adventure Ride Photo Gallery
Alaska had rental agencies for Kawasaki KLR’s to Harley-Davidsons to BMW. Daily rates were similar to those in the Lower 48. Some “off-road” provisions applied or a premium was paid in some cases to take the motorcycle on gravel.
When a friend suggests yet another round the globe ride, Dr. G. comes up with a new spin on the idea – a Rent Your Own Adventure Ride. Read the full story in
Dr. Frazier: Rent Your Own Adventure Ride
Rentals in Japan were rare, but could be found. This 400 cc model was adequate for the Japanese speed limits and road conditions.
A wide range of rental motorcycle was available in the Philippines. This agency had over 60 rentals in their fleet.
In Thailand Harley-Davidsons were pricy at $125.00 USD per day, but available.
A Kawasaki KLX250 in Thailand could be rented for $25.00 USD per day in certain towns.
A fleet of rental motorcycles pictured here in Thailand ranged from 110 cc to full-on sport bikes rented by the day, week or month. A downside was leaving a passport as a security deposit.
I was able to take a motorcycle rented in Thailand out of the country into Malaysia and here pictured into Laos, so one rental could be used for several countries.
This rented Transalp carried me and my gear all over Laos.
In Laos there was a wide range of brands of motorcycles available for rent, but not much over 500 cc.
In Cambodia rental agencies catered to foreigners with mostly dual purpose motorcycles like the ones pictured at this agency, again requiring a passport for deposit, or a hefty amount of cash.
A rental motorcycle in Vietnam like this one pictured would likely be under 175 cc, which was enough for the Vietnam roads and traffic conditions.
Pictured is a rare motorcycle rental agency on Borneo (in the Malaysian part), but rentals were available.
Borneo also has big displacement motorcycles available for rent in the Malaysian parts, but expensive due to high import taxes.
Indonesia could be explored on a rental motorcycle like this one.
Malaysia rentals were hard to find. Rentals were inexpensive unless the renter wanted a large displacement motorcycle.
Finding rental motorcycles in Burma (Myanmar) was tough, but not impossible. This one pictured was in Rangoon.
