    A bit more information would be useful. Do you ride with pillion or alone? How much luggage do you need to carry, do you go camping or B&B/hotels?

    And.... do you hold a motorcycle licence that is valid in the uk?.
    What size/type of bike are you familiar with?
    Check that you can get insurance to cover you while riding a bike in the UK.

    This conversation is more well suited to have with the motorcycle rental company. If you have specific follow up questions and provide all the details requested here, then we can provide a fulsome response.

    As it stands, we don't know if you've ever ridden a motorcycle, if you are a computer bot or if you plan to travel on a trail or pavement.

    A quick look at motorbike hire in the uk looks expensive.
    Charges of at least £150 a day, deposits of over £2000, minimum age of 25 or more and various other T&Cs I haven't read.
    As mentioned above, you need to have a disscusion with one of the myriad bike hire company to check what is available to you. Google "Motorbike Hire UK" - there are several to choose from.
