Lucky me! I get two weeks in Northern Portugal in September 08 as part of my tour of Portugal, Spain, France and passing through the UK.
I'm thinking of maybe renting a small motor bike for touring about while I am in a Villa near Porto. Does anyone know if motor bikes might be available for rent and/or where ? Thanks

Basically uou must find companies in Porto, Braga..., or other city in the north of portugal
obrigado wich ( as you already know ) means thanks.
The north of portugal is the most beautifull part of the country at least for me.
The north is somewhat more european..,while the south is more arab and african.
( In fact the peninsula was invaded by the arabs in 700 and they stayed for 700 years. Portuguese are a mix of arabs, africans and people from north of europe )
The capital of the north is Porto.
It is portugal second largest city.
Braga.., is a great city. Extremely beautifull with lots of young people and thriving nightlife . In Braga there are several universities therefore the young people.
Viana do Castelo is also beautifull.
