Hiring a motorcycle in Israel

Can anyone help me with the names of companies who rent motorbikes in Israel? I'm planning to go in Spring 2013.

I'd appreciate any type of information, especially tips of good routes and motorcycle friendly places to stay.

Last December I flew to Israel and hired a KLE500 in ליסינג קטנועים | השכרת קטנועים | השכרת קטנוע | השכרת אופנועים | ליסינג אופנועים, the only site I found on the web for big bikes. No cheap, but no problem at all.

The route:

Check out these websites:

1. ליסינג קטנועים | השכרת קטנועים | השכרת קטנוע | השכרת אופנועים | ליסינג אופנועים
Contact Info
Overseas - +972 3 9226753
Israel, outside Tel Aviv - 03 9226753
Tel Aviv - 9226753

2. The Israeli Motorcycles Club
Website is in English format.

For the best bike routes, I guess the best to approach is:
Holyland Riders
They offer motorcycle group tours, so you can ask for a (map) brochure once there, in Israel.

I'm new here
As a motorcycle guide making tours in Israel I say +1 to davkov's info. Leasing Cycle (ליסינג קטנועים | השכרת קטנועים | השכרת קטנוע | השכרת אופנועים | ליסינג אופנועים) is the one and only point where You can hire a bike in Israel. If You call, try to talk to Eli, he speaks English best of all. Ask for V-Strom, Versys, Varadero. Prices are high due to enorm insurance in Israel.
Roads to go: Northern Road (No.889-886), Judean Hills (No.44, 38, 386, 375, 395) and serpantine from Ein Bokek on the Dead Sea to Arad (No.31, pay attention to a memorial to illegal races of 90-th).

Thanks ondoibili and to all the others. Looks like there is only one plase to rent. Strange in a country where there is beautiful weather most of the year. I suppose shipping your own bike over there for three weeks would make no sense.
