Want to ride in the UK

Hey Guys....

A few of my riding buddies want to take a trip to the UK. One is in has late 40's and the other in his late 20's....Of course we would be renting bikes, but the problem that I face is that I'm only 23. Is there any place that would allow me to rent a bigger bike then a 125? We will be riding 1000's of miles and would need saddlebags, etc... to make the trip and Eric (40's) said that a 125 wouldnt be able to make the trip.


I would really like to do this, and was hoping someone would help me out in getting a bike.

One option that they brought up is that I could buy a bike and have a buddy of Erics sell it when I leave...It will be a 7 day trip/ride.

I still see an issue with that because I am not 25 (minimum age req. for a larger bike) so would I only be able to buy a 125cc if I went that route...

Also if anyone is willing to rent me their bike I will pay the equivalent of a daily rental.


Thanks in Advance
Dan

I can send you in the right direction mate. As long as you come to London for the bikes you will have no problem just bring a big deposit. There is no age minimum.
