Mexican Moto Rental

I want to rent a bike for a few weeks in Mexico and have only found one rental company : MEXICO MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURES ; [url=http://www.mxmotoadv.com/url].

Has anyone had any experience with them or other Mexican rental companies? I am planning on traveling in the southern half of Mexico in February, 2013 and am hoping for a KLR or similar 650 with rental costs below $80/day for 10-14 day period.

Thanks for any input.

I think they are your best bet. I know several people who have rented from them and all of them except one was happy. The one who was unhappy rented without a reservation and didn't get one of their better bikes. Oscar goes out of his way to help people. An American friend rented a bike in Mex City and returned it in Cancun with no extra charge.
They are basically your only real option.

Where in Mexico? Mexico D.F., or elsewhere? There are bikes for rent elsewhere, like Cancun and San Miguel de Allende.
