Sedona area rentals?

Hello from the rainy Northwest.

About the time that the entire NW is popping Prozac like Jelly Bellys after a long wet-cold Winter and Spring -- the pillion and I are flying to the sun of AZ first week of May next year.

I trying to find a place to rent a bike (almost any bike) for a few days of fun in the Sedona area. Any ideas?

It will be my first time to AZ for anything other than a stop over at an airport. This may also be a partial preview of my goal to ride Route 66 from IL to CA - soon.

crap i just remembered seeing something about this not long ago, wanna say its eagle something for the name, not very cheap though,
the fiance just asked me about this very same thing the other day since we may take our honeymoon out that way
you going to fly into phx then drive up? i know theres a couple cycle rental places in phx proper.
you'll love sedona, i was much more impressed with it than the grand canyon the first time i came across mingus mountain from prescott into the verde valley and saw it.
theres lots of great hiking and seasonal roads around there and a few hidden water holes and one very popular one (slide rock on oak creek)
if i can find/remember what the rental in sedona was i'll post it in

addendum:
ok, couldn't find the one in sedona specifically, but the 'eagle' i was referring too is www.eaglerider.com and all they have for pickups in the area is phoenix and flagstaff (only stock giant dresser harley's) and scottsdale has a few bwm's a couple goldwings (including a trike) and one of those weird piagio two front wheel scooters

there's several users on here from the area, i know rzimm is one of them

I rented from EagleRider in Scottdale/Phoenix.

It was a good experience, we rented Harleys. Note that the fine print prohibits off-pavement use.

Great riding north of Phoenix.

Your in for a treat, beautiful area. Mountain biking/ hiking mecca. Didn't find many off-road rental options but Harleys where plentiful.

Looks like Eagle Rider has BMWs in Scottsdale and Las Vegas if you don't want to Pirate-up your wardrobe.

I think it's funny how not one person from AZ has posted yet.

I'll add one more note that you will love Sedona. The wife and I have been there twice about 5 years apart. The first time it was much smaller...but they have undergone a bit of a building boom and a lot of the tourists are becoming "locals". Still beautiful nonetheless.

They don't need to rent, they have bikes there.
