My wife and really enjoy riding motorcycles. We are scratching an item off of our "bucket list" by renting a touring motorcycle from Bastille Harley Davidson in Paris for four days in late May. We plan on taking an overnight trip to Normandy for one night and then take side trips from Paris to the castles in the south. The bike will come with GPS so that will help. However, there are always nuances to consider when renting and riding a bike in a foreign area that can include parking safety and theft protection. I've rented cars a number of times in Europe and I have the stories and "battle scars" to prove it. My U.S. GEICO motorcycle policy will cover the rental so we are good there. What else should I know? What else should I consider or prepare for?
Thank you for your help!
