May/may not be the type of thing your looking for, but found these people to be quite helpful, and it would seem, reasonably flexible.GS heaven - BMW 1200GS adventure motorcycle rental in Spain, BMW motorbike holiday hire Spain
Good luck, Boot.

What sort of bike are you looking for?
If you're flying in, which airport?
Are you planning on visiting Morocco?

Hi Dakota,

We (me and my husband) have Honda VFR 800FI,but we are not to much fastidious.Generally we prefer road-touristic bikes (800-1000cm).
The airport depends on place (or places) of accommodation (at the moment we do not know where) or a place of rent a bike.
First of all i would like to check cost of rent a bike,then lodgings.
We are planning on visiting Spain,but i would like to be at least 2-3days in Marocco.
Maybe do you have for me any syggestions,will be grateful
Regards
Izabela

Hi Izabela

Here's some links for the Malaga area. Some of them are franchises so have offices throughout Spain.

Motorcycle Rental in Malaga, Spain - Honda, Harley Davidson, Yamaha - AdMo-Tours
MOTO ESPANA Motorcycle Rental Spain, Motorbike hire Spain
Exclusive Motorcycle tours in Spain, Portugal and Morocco: HISPANIA-TOURS
BMW MOTO RENTAL - Motorcycle Rental Spain, Motorbike Hire Spain

The only problem you'll have going to Morocco is that most of these rental places don't allow bikes to travel outside Europe. The only company I know of that does is GS heaven - BMW 1200GS adventure motorcycle rental in Spain, BMW motorbike holiday hire Spain which bunyip01 recommended.

Alternatives were to rent in Spain, then fly from Malaga to Morocco and rent in Morocco.

Hi,

I know that Harley have a Spanish Rental location in a town called Calpe, which is between Valencia and Alicante. This area is great for touring with good roads and really interesting places to visit. The problem here is that you are too far away from the Malaga area to consider going to Morocco.

However, if you prefer road touring then maybe Morocco is not really suitable for you.

As an alternative, there are ferries to Ibiza and Majorca from a port called Denia and also from Valencia itself. So if you based yourself in Calpe you could explore the great roads of the Costa Blanca and get over to Ibiza or Majorca for a few days.

This is just a suggestion, as Spain is such a large country with so many great area to tour.
