A first solution is the most obvious one: you hop on a plane and rent a motorcycle on your place of arrival. You don’t have to worry about getting your bike travel-ready, nor about any additional costs, just book a cheap flight and find a rental place near the airport.
If you keep an eye open for bargains, you might notice that some budget airlines offer return flights for as little as 20 euros. Mostly only including hand luggage, on less attractive data and destinations which wouldn’t appeal to a lot of people - but you might find some gems amongst those deals.
And don’t we all like a challenge? Put on those motorcycle sneakers, a kevlar jeans and your leather jacket for the flight, while you stuff your gloves and helmet in a backpack. You can always buy a toothbrush, three sets of boxers and a deodorant at the nearest supermarket, right? We’d only advise this way for weekend trips though, for the obvious reasons… More often though, you’ll notice that you spend at least 50 to 150 euros per flight, including one piece of check-in luggage.
Rental prices all over Europe range widely from 50 to over 200 euros a day, depending on the duration of rental, the brand, the condition and age of the bike, and the country in which you rent the bike. Most of them require a deposit (cash or credit card), which can easily be around 1.000 euros.
Apart from the required deposit, there are some other downsides to renting a bike. Before departure, you might’ve already ordered a rental, which will have you know the type of your motorcycle, but you’ll never really know what you’re going to get (mileage, condition,...) until you arrive.
On top of that, you will need to drag your luggage along as you can’t pack it from home, you will have to bring the bike back to a the rental point so your trip will have to be a roundtrip no matter what. On top of that, you’ll always have a chance of high insurance fees or costs if anything breaks. But that’s just me playing the devil’s advocate.
