Anyone hired a bike in Norway?

With the demise of the direct ferry from Newcastle and the massive prices if you get lucky on the freight service or even the Harwich = Ejsberg route I am thinking maybe I will fly in and rent a bike.

 Anyone recommend anywhere?  I've googled every permatation I can think of but get no where, I'm sure you can land in Oslo and get hooked up pretty quickly but I'd rather get something sorted before getting there.

Cheers

I seem to remember there being a big motorbike shop in Kristiansand, close to the Ferry Port, that did rentals, but it's at least 6 years since I was in Norway, so I can't remember the name or anything, sorry (but it DOES prove that they're out there!!).I did find a website by a Norwegian biker, and it does have a link for his e-mail, the site is all in Norwegian, so I don't understand it, but perhaps it's worth you contacting this guy, with luck he might understand English, and be able to help you - from his site it is clear that he is keen on Touring at least:http://www.no-alt-motorsykler.org/turer/namturer.htmlIf you go about half-way down the page I have listed, you will find this:send meg en mail!Which, I think, is fairly self explanatory.The ONLY other thing that I can think of for you to do is to contact HC Travel, who carry an extensive worldwide list of places where you can rent bikes and tour:http://www.hctravel.com/Good luck, the demise of the Newcastle ferries is quite a downer eh??

Cheers pal...Waitiing to hear from HC, yeah its right royal pain no Newcaslte

Found a few more - Arctic Harley seem well up for this sort of thing - even with a few suggested routes (with or without a guide).http://www.yougodo.com/en/Motorcycle-in-Norway/Search.aspx?cc=NO&c=92 May be a bit cold up there but if you are used to Newcastle Have fun!
