Found bike rental in Iceland

Hey guys just wanted to share that after countless hrs of search I found site (ridingisland.is) that rents 650 Vstrom,KLRs,ATV and something called Can Am Xt 400 ( you may laugh but I have no clue what is it). After writting them e-mail they responded in 10 min ready to answer any ?. An ADV rider from Rejkjavik sent me mail that it must be a new business since today is the first day that he noticed them advertising in the local paper.
Thanks for reading my ramblings.
Im going there in sept if anyone interested in joining.

Iceland Tours and Rentals

I'm just back from a week's tour in Iceland.

I rode with a company called Blue Mountain on their Pure Adventure tour run by a fantastic couple, Sverrir and Herdis. They looked after me and the three other guests extremely well - compared to other bike tours I've been on I can't praise them highly enough.

Brand new BMW F650gs with new tyres were great to ride and well suited for the mixture of tarmac, gravel and dirt roads, river crossings etc. For me it was a real adventure and I loved it.

Scenery and sights were fantastic, with a good mix of challenging roads and conditions. Sverrir's father and brother met us on one of their round-the-world bike's for a great evening on a glacier lake front with great food and a few s. A great experience in the middle of the highlands.

I'm not connected to Blue Mountain in any way other than being a very impressed and satisfied customer. I recommend Iceland as a great place to tour and Sverrir and Blue Mountain as a great tour company to use.
