You may want to contact Iron Horse Motorcycles in Tucson, AZ. I beleive they have rentals available. Iron Horse Motorcycles.

There should be several other dealers/companies that rent in Arizona. Try a google search. You may also want to google "motorcycle rentals in Los Vegas, Nevada" which is fairly close by.

Hi there
My wife and I traveled to Arizona this past March and spent a month riding the Southern part of Arizona on our little Honda VT500C, 1985. It was fabulous! Our favorite places were Tombstone where we stayed at the Trail Riders Motel........this place was great............a couple from England Paul and Lauren operate this clean inexpensive Motel right in the town........try the cheap at Crazy Annie's Bordello.......cheapest in the U.S.........also our favorite place in all of Arizona was Yuma!....We stayed at La Fuente Inn at Exit #2 going into Yuma........really worth the trip......from there you can ride into California in about 10 minutes and go up to Las Vegas in about 2 1/2 hours......Mexico is just 10 minutes away.
Don't spend too much time in Phoenix or Tuscon as these cities are pretty busy. Just get into the desert and check out Benson, Bisbee . Stay off the bottom route from Tuscon to Yuma as it is pretty close to the Mexican Border and there may be a bit of trouble with the "runners" coming across the desert into the US from Mexico.,.....Border Guards are fairly active all along the southern roads and expect a few roadblocks. Other than that enjoy the desert....it is spectacular..........enjoy! .......Arizona treats bikers like kings!

Arizona ideas

Zisimos,
Well October is a great time to visit AZ. But I would visit the Northern and Eastern areas. Examples: From Phoenix or Tucson go to Clifton and Hwy 191 (525 switchbacks in 100 miles) one of my world favorites! Hwy.260 across the White Mtns. is beautiful and so are the little towns it driffs through. Hwy.60 between Show Low and Globe, 188 to Payson and 87 up to Flagstaff and 180 to Grand Canyon all spectacular. 89A from Flagstaff to Sedona and Jerome to Prescott, and 89 on to Wickenburg are all fun roads. As previously mentioned, Tombstone and Bisbee, Tubac and even Tucson are all good visits, though warmer. The High country is 2300 meters, and can get snow in later Oct. temps 0-18 C, but the deserts are still very warm, up to 37C! The mountain dividing line is N of Prescott, Camp Verde, Globe.
Allen.
