Lots of possibilities. All of them probably newer than yours though.

Well they have GL1800s and smaller. An 1800 would run you about $2500 for two weeks. Lesser bikes, less money. You can pick up about anything for rent in Orlando. Florida is funny, but most places require a motorcycle license, and for you, it would have to be an international license. They were even pushing for international car licenses in Florida a couple of years back, due to the different language licenses being used, that the LEOs could not read.

I would urge you to contact several rental companies in that area ( Eagle Riders ) and see what the requirements would be for licensing, insurance, and so forth for you to rent a bike for a few days.

I doubt that any rental company would have anything older than 8/9years to rent.

When I rented a car, they wanted to see my Australian licence, and because it was in English, and they could work out the types of licences I held, they did not want to see the International licence. An International licence here is issued by the authorised motorists association (RAA or AAA equivalent). It has photos, and your licence codes translated and in a number of languages.

I lived in Kissimmee for 21 years. You DO NOT want to be in FloriDUH on a motorcycle between March and December. TOO HOT AND HUMID!!! You don't even want to be there in a car. Try to time your visit for January or February, during the "dry season". If you go to Orlando, do not go west of I-4.

For the price of an 1800 rental, you could buy an 1100 and sell it when you leave.
