We do our best to accommodate last minute bookings but to ensure the motorcycle you would like to rent is available, it is best to reserve in advance.

Yes & No

At SPXM we are all fellow adventure seekers, and understand there is no place like the open road. So we would never restrict just where that road goes. As long as we are notified at time of rental, we will make sure you have all the documentation you need to do so. 

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will have to implement the latest restrictions in terms for cross border traveling and at this time, it will be a No to traveling to the USA.

YES! We rent motorcycles for the ICBC Motorcycle Skills (MST) and Road tests and we’ll bring the bike right to the testing facility so all you have to worry about is showing up at the ICBC Drive test centre and passing!
