Hire a Motorbike in Sydney
If riding a motorbike is on your bucket list, Sydney and NSW is a great place to jump on a bike. There's no shortage of hire places around the city, but which bike should you choose? For scooting around the city, a moped is ideal. If you're planning a road trip, hire a cruiser like a Harley Davidson or a Chopper. Touring motorcycles are also great for covering long distances, and trail bikes are best for off-road adventures.
Once you've got your bike, grab a map and get started. Day trips not to miss include the Blue Mountains, an easy two-hour ride from Sydney. The Hunter Valley wineries are around two hours from Sydney, or head down the South Coas to Wollongong or sleepy Kangaroo Valley. If you've got a trail bike, you'll find public trails to carve it up on in a number of State Forests and National Parks around NSW. Check local guides for approved trails.
Sydney's Northern Beaches is also a trip not to miss. It's around a 90 minute' ride from Sydney to the end of the Palm Beach peninsula, with stunning coastal scenery all along the way. Devote a day to it and stop for lunch at Avalon or Palmie, as the locals call it. You'll find everything from cafes to casual fish'n'chips.
