2.7 Motorcycle

"I rented almost everywhere that had sane accident laws. No one asked me for an international driver's license (or any license at all!) - certainly not a motorcycle license. Beware, no one seems to rent (or care) about safety helmets. Definitely something to think about." <Alan Nelson>

"Read the fine print in your insurance policy and theirs. Almost every policy I have seen excludes motorcycle riding completely, and the rest I have seen exclude it if you are unlicensed. If you are uninsured and end up in the hospital in the wrong country, either your life or your financial status could be seriously threatened." <Bernd Wechner>

"Many people go motorcycling through Africa. It seems like the best thing you can do in your life, but one Dutch guy told me that roads are often so bad that instead of looking at the beautiful scenery, you end up looking at the road to avoid holes, sometimes big enough to swallow a truck." <Mats Henricson>
