    Well, as the article mentions if you read far enough into the text, the US is not included on the rental features of this site (although the US is one of the options in its county selector). It does reference a separate US-specific rental site which, if you check it out, has very limited options of models to rent. You are ok if you want to try a GS or an R18, but if you want to rent an R1250R or RS, you are SOL (at least at the moment).
