Alternative to hiring
Steve has recommended a good company to you, but the only problem could be the hire charges. As an option to hiring, I can offer you a good alternative, which I have done for a few Aussies and Kiwis over the last few years.
I sell you a bike at a little over trade price, you do your tour and then on your return I put the bike up at a retail price. We service it, renew any worn consumerbles, like tyres, brakes pads, chains, sprockets etc and then give it a good valet.
The profit made will cover these costs, my commission and you will either come out a little on top, evens or down a couple of hundred quid.
I'm based near Banbury, Oxfordshire and we can pick you both up from the station, you are welcome to stay the night as our guests, have a few warm s and then head off on your adventure the next day, after a good old English Breakfast to get you on your way. Great!
By the way, do you know the Suzuki dealer in Perth, as he is the brother of a good friend of mine who I've met when he's been over to the UK.
Hope this helps and if you like the idea, e mail me and I will send you some pics of fully loaded bikes that are ready to go for between £1,500 to £2,000. Can also sort insurance for you and the bikes will have UK road Tax and MOT.
