Id have to double check that. Most of the dealers have merged into multi-manufacture dealers down here.

There is a spot that rents BMW tour bikes but no luck with Yamaha though a quick search. Another that rents Goldwings and of course plenty of HD rentals everywhere. South Florida is an HD haven, that's all you see down here.

Since you don't do much long-distance riding I'd suggest keeping the bike you have for the local riding you do and on the rare occasion that you desire to take a long-distance ride with the wife rent something that catches your eye and find out what you like or dislike about each one before thinking about pulling the trigger on another bike

Don't be a dummy and ride unprotected, it's like picking up a prostitute without bringing a condom along for the ride.

Rock the gear all the time ATGATT....

People that I have purchased things from that were great to deal with......mtmous, mrfreeze, rgiess, wiseguydave, rvcycleguy, cdubl, ThePostman, zfmrchnt, jaster1138
People not to buy from ......

^^ Good Advice. As the owner of a big heavy bike, it is fine as long as you don't tip it. Guide it through the parking lot with good throttle/clutch/brake control and there are no problems. Try out bikes and figure out what you like.
