2. What papers do I need to rent a bike?
Your ID card and a valid motorcycle drivers license.
A credit card.
3. What types of licenses are valid in Australia?
In Australia, laws and driving regulations differ from state to state. Some states require you to carry an International Licence with your current foreign licence. Other states request you carry your current foreign driver's licence together with a formal translation of your licence into English.
In most Australian states and territories (the exception is the Northern Territory), you are able to drive on a overseas licence as long as it is current. You can only drive vehicles which your overseas licence authorises you to drive and you must drive according to any conditions on your overseas licence.

If the weather forecast shows a chance of rain over 50% we allow you to reschedule the reserve with only 3 days in advance.
7. Can I pick up or drop off the bike in another city?
Yes. Currently the only office we have is in Sydney, but it is possible to arrange delivery or collection in any other city of Australia. Ask us about the cost of this service.
8. Can you bring me the bike to the airport or hotel?
In Sydney the bikes must be collected at and returned to our offices.

No. The bike comes with a full tank and must be returned the same.
12. What kind of insurance do the bikes have?
The bikes are covered with fully comprehensive insurance in excess of $5,000. This means that in case of damage your liability is limited to this amount of $5,000.
13. Can you reduce the amount of the insurance excess?
No, it is not possible to reduce the amount of the insurance excess.
14. Do I have to deposit a bond?
Yes, we will ask you for a deposit which is the amount of the insurance excess. When you return the bike undamaged, the deposit will be refunded. If the bike is damaged, we will retain the part of the deposit we estimate necessary to cover the repair. When this is finished, we will submit you the invoice and we will transfer you the remaining part of the deposit, if there is any.
15. What happens if I am not responsible?
When you pick up the bike, we will do together an inspection of any present scratches. When you return the bike we will conduct another inspection together. Any new damage that has appeared during your rental will be considered your responsibility. However, if the damage is caused by a third party, you must complete with the third party a friendly accident report, and your deposit will be withheld until we have confirmation from the insurance company that the other driver accepts the responsibility for the accident.
16. Can another person drive the bike that I rent?
Yes, as long as that person meets the requirements and has been included in the rental agreement as an additional driver. In any case, you will be responsible for any damages.
17. Can someone else pick up my bike?
No, since you must sign the contract
18. Can someone else drop off my bike?
Yes, if this person has been included in the rental agreement as an additional driver.
19. If we are a group of friends renting multiple bikes, can we swap?
Yes, as long as you are all included in the contracts of others as additional drivers. In this case the only responsible for any damages is the one who signed the contract.
20. Can I ride the motorcycle outside or off the public roads?
No, under no circumstances are you allowed to circulate with the bike through the countryside, racing circuits, or any other private areas.
