There was a period of time when I was required to spend a couple of weeks at a time several times per year in Geneva, Switzerland. I longed for a motorcycle to ride on those glorious mountain roads. Here's what I worked out with a local motorcycle dealer. I would look over his used fleet and pick one I would like. I would agree to buy the machine for a certain price, and the dealer would set the down payment, which would equal what he was willing to rent it to me for. But, on the contract, he would grant me a refusal period, equal to how long I wanted the machine for anyhow. If I brought it back within that refusal period, I would get out of the contract, but lose the down payment (rent). This way, his insurance covered the machine if I pranged it while I had it. We did this off and on for 4 or 5 years. I also got to sample a wide variety of machines, some of which never made it to the US.
