I live in Alice Springs Australia - ride a 1990 wing 1500. I intend to ride LA to Vancouver return in August. Any local knowledge about hiring / leasing / buying and selling a wing - I need one for just 3 weeks!:)

For all us Aussies there is only one LA and that is Los Angeles, pretty much first point of land when flying east for us! No direct flights to Louisiana or Lethbridge...

Vancouver BC I assume, or Vancouver WA ?

There must be somebody in LA that rents Wings.

As said, Eaglerider which is just a few miles from LAX.. I've rented both the Gl1800 and HD Electraglide from them. They only have a couple GL1800s but many HDs. Helmets are included. They rent all the other gear as well, but that seemed expensive. Busy place...

Renting is sooo expensive... its almost worth buying a new Wing if you rent often. Just Sayin!
But for those that are just visiting our country, renting is probably much cheaper than shipping a bike back and forth. This, of course, depends on a lot of factors.
Buying one here from out of country can be quite the hassle also. Registration/insurance/etc. to a non-citizen.
Then you have to figure to resell the bike here after you've left the country or just prior to. Which can be its own can of worms.

Gee never thought of it like that... Yup if you just got to come to the states you might want to rent one..
