Renting a motorcycle is an expensive venture... break it down and see where you can save.
Rental = X$/day... this is usually a fixed amount, but try to negotiate up front. ie. free miles or reduced rate on miles.
Clothing and riding gear = some items furnished free... some for a price. Bring your own or ship your own ahead, and then ship back home.
Insurance = X$/day and is the most expensive insurance you will ever purchase. Find out if your own insurance will cover and to what extent... call your agent and negotiate coverage for anything else that you want to be covered that your homeowners or vehicle insurance doesn't cover. An umbrella insurance package is relatively cheap... around $150 - $200 for a million dollars.
All in all, proper prep and sorting out the details in advance leads to a more enjoyable adventure.
