BMW R 1200 GS LC
The R 1200 GS LC is the ultimate adventure machine.
For some people it's a universal tool which practically never fails them - whether on a local run, the daily journey to work or weekend trips. For others it's a way of life - just the right machine for every tour, whether a one-week trip for two into local motorcycling territory or fulfilling the dream of a lifetime thousands of miles away from home. The "GS" is not just able to handle everything, it is actually built to do so. And in this synthesis of easy handling, supreme touring suitability and comfort for rider and pillion passenger, there's simply no other motorcycle that does it better.
Please note: At this time we only allow select bikes to be used off-road, refer to our policies page for more details.

At Cycle BC we strive to make your rental experience as enjoyable and easy as possible.
When you arrive at our shop a rental agent will greet you and help you prepare for your trip. The checkout process starts by filling out a rental agreement and securing the deposit, during this step your rental agent will explain all of the details of the contract and answer any questions you might have. This is also a great time to get recommendations on suggested routes and must see sights. Once we have the initial paperwork out of the way, your rental agent will assist you in picking out proper fitting riding gear, outfitting your bike with any additional luggage, supplying you with emergency and rider care kits and making any adjustments to make your ride as comfortable as possible. The final step of the checkout process is one final safety inspection and a complete run through all the controls along with any special notes about your bike. This entire process can be as quick as ten minutes or as long as you would like to take. During your rental you will be provided with emergency contact numbers so a Cycle BC representative will always be a phone call away.
Upon check-in the most important part will be sharing your story! All of our rental agents are passionate riders and would love to hear about your journey. Once you have had a chance to stretch we will perform a thorough inspection on the bike and gear, as long as everything is in good condition you will be free to leave. If a taxi is required we would be happy to call one for you.
