Bike Rental?

I was just thinking, I'm thinking about either getting an 04-06 ZX-10R or an 07 ZX-6R, and was wondering: I want to test-drive one before I buy it, and was thinking that if I could rent a ZX-10R, that would help with my decision making. Anybody know a place where I can do this? Or is it whatever bike they have you have to take? I know you can't usually do a real test-drive at dealerships, and am looking for any other opportunity to do so.

If you end up finding one, let me know. I haven't found any places that rent bikes besides harleys & buells.

I need your boots, your clothes, and your motorcycle.

If you are looking at a ZX10 I think you mean an 04-05, or 06 and beyond. The 06 model was when they changed the body style.

Get the 06 if you can. Undertail exhaust, ohlins stearing stabilizer equals badass. I got the 05 and love it, but would take the 06 over the 05. I haven't driven an 06 yet though.

Go looking at used ones I test drove mine before I bought it from the guy.

Your best bet would be to find someone that owns the bike and convince them to let you ride it...
