Get a 50cc scooter, speed cameras everywhere and the national speed limit is 80K's ! Unless your on the freeway. Yawn ! Wear a 3 peice suit and you just might get into a hotel, if you comb your hair and hide your bike.
I spent all my money on Bikes n Beer. The rest I just wasted.

You might try
O.T. Dovik
in Kristiansand NO (south coast)
who organizes occasional moto tours in Norway, and
may be able to arrange "private" moto rental--even BMW.

Absent an in-country NO bike rental, you might consider a more
easily available BMW rental from Germany (e.g.Berlin, Hamburg),
one day ride to Hirtshals DK, 3 hr fast ferry Hirstshals--Kristiansand NO,
and carry on....

Your comment on Norway riding is completely contrary to my
several times riding there experience: most recently 2011, 1 month on 650GS, little actual enforcement of 80kph limit on 90% of beautifully maintained roads off main highways; motorcycles + rider gear fully accepted in all accomodations from upscale in-city hotels to rural camping/ hostels; plus, the riding scenery is to die for, and people super friendly. Of course, NO is expensive, and it's likely to rain, even in mid-summer....or not.

Norway is fantastic, but I think that most scandinavian countries are too expensive to rent bikes in and probably to difficult as well.

Your best option would be northern germany, as said before. Midnight sun and the coast of norway is absolutely worth a ride from germany and back

Expensive, yes. But you can just be glad that you dont live there :-)

I am coming to Norway on my motorbike. But My brother is planning to come and he needs a Motorbike for a week or two in August. Cost is not a problem.

I googled it but results are poor.

Please suggest motorbike rentals that are available in Norway.
