One of the world’s largest motorcycle-rental outfitters, EagleRider gives chrome jockeys access to its formidable fleet of BMWs, Harleys, Hondas, and Triumphs, as well as the gear necessary for day-long odysseys on the open road. Customers first select their two-wheeled steed of choice, from the touring Twin Cam Harley-Davidson Road King to the easy-riding Harley Dyna Wide Glide. They then undergo orientation, brushing up on all aspects of safety and bandana tying. Once revved up, Fonda channelers slap on leather jackets, secure helmets, and mount the concrete with the faithful assistance and droll commentary of a GPS navigation system. Though basic liability insurance is provided with each rental, clients will have to gas up tanks and leave a major credit card for a security deposit before departing on low-riding jaunts.
