Dear Merrin and company:

I wanted to thank you for your terrific hospitality, efficiency and all-around accommodation during my brief trip to Melbourne this last week. The Monster 696 was a fine machine and performed as expected. The route you suggested was fantastic - and I will not admit to having exceeded the posted speed limit by 100%+ west of Lorne and up into the rain forest!!! Splendid roads indeed!

I've attached a few photos of my ride for your viewing pleasure and use. Also a couple of links to some of my rides on our back-roads here in Marin County where I live just 20 minutes from San Francisco (which is uncannily similar to where you sent me!). The first is an on-board I made whilst ridig my 2008 Ducati Hyper Motard. The second more recent video was taken while I was being tracked on my KTM Super Duke 1290R by a friend on his BMW S100R - great fun if you every have a change to come this way!

I hope to avail myself of your fine company again in the future!

Cheers, John

Hi Trevor, Merrin, Adam & Simon,

Hope you can post this quick note on your testimonials page on the web site. Many thanks for all your help with our 3 day adventure on the Great Ocean Road & Great Alpine Road. The FJR1300 was brilliant and we travelled a total of 905 miles (about 1450Km).

You were all extremely friendly & professional and we could not have wished for better service or support. There are a couple of pics attached; the third one (below) includes Sandra's brother - Paul on his KTM who was with us for the 3 days.

Once again, many thanks - hope to see you all again in the future!

Lots of love,

Huw & Sandra

We wont hesitate to refer our motorcycling friends to your company should they have the need to hire from Melbourne, it was a pleasure to meet you and we appreciate your advice  and professionalismSo glad I didn’t have to clean the bike at the end

Hi Trevor!
We are back home in Toronto Canada now and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your great service.
Hiring a bike at long distance can be a gamble but you and your staff were very accommodating to my changes along the way.
The bike was in good shape and we felt very confident it could handle the trip.
We really enjoyed our week on the bike seeing the Great Ocean road and Great Alpine road.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting to hire a bike in Melbourne.
Cheers  :)

Keith Broughton


Many thanks for everything, the bike and all of the gear were great as well
as Jason and John's help at pickup and return of the bike.
Hereby a nice picture we took at the great ocean road.

Dear Trevor,
Just wanted to say thank you so very much for your excellent help and service during our visit to Oz and our hire of your Harley Davidson Ultra Classic.
The bike was absolutely superb with the convenience of its cruise control for the long straight rides along the plains and then its handling for the corners of the mountains.
Your help at the start of our journey made life so much easier for a couple of Scots new to your country, with some great Australian hospitality thrown in.
We got lots of admiring comments about the bike as we toured around the country, so we made sure we let them know that we got it from Garners and how well we were treated.
Keep up the excellent work, and if I need another bike the next time I'm in Oz, I'll definitely be knocking on your door first.
All the very best,

Mike and Fiona xScotland

Hi Jason,We extended our stay in Oz by staying in Cairns, Ayers Rock and Sydney after dropping your bike off in Cairns.we had an absolutely fantastic time riding to Cairns. We met up with the Wild Geese Motorcycle Club outside of Brisbane who gave me a copy
of the Australia Motorcycle Atlas written by Peter Thoeming and it has the
top 100 rides through Oz in it and I reckon we must have ridden every one
that was on our route to Cairns....bloody fantastic.
The bike was a gem and didn't give us a minutes bother and handled so well I now need to buy a new set of toe sliders for my boots!!Also got to say thanks again for leading us out when we left Melbourne,
it's kindness like that that makes all the difference when you're a long
way from home, boiled in your kit and certain that you're going to get
lost on day one!!

All in all we had a fantastic time, met some brilliant people and would
certainly recommend you guys to anyone that had half an idea to do it as
well.As an aside I reckon the best road we went on was the Alpine Way between
Khancoban and Jindabyne....105k of total hilarity!!
Anyway, thanks again, we had a total blast and that wouldn't have been the
case if the bike hadn't done it's job....cheers.

Hopefully these photos will give you a flavour of our travels and might inspire others to do similar!!

Once again, thanks for everything, it really turned out to be the trip of a lifetime.

All the best.

  Satisfied customer! Scotty was outstanding, providing precise guidance and a spectacular bike! I enjoyed the hell out of it- thanks very much!!! M Patrick Albuquerque, NM USA.

After contacting Simon at Garners Motorcycle Hire by email from Scotland he organised the hire of an FJR1300 for myself and my sister Moira. As planned we had a fantastic 4 day tour along the great ocean road and up to Halls Gap in the Grampian Mountains. Scenery was superb and the bike performed really well. The bike was reliable, comfortable and well able to deliver the power when needed. A big thanks to all the guys at Garners Motorcycle Hire.

  Thanks for a great alternative to buying a bike. $13000 to buy one or $250 to rent one 4 times a year, no question in my mind. New bike every time, no rego or tyres or maintenance etc man i've explained to my wife the more i rent the more i save. See you soon. Ron Hopkins
