What You'll Get
Riding a motorcycle down the freeway was America's first national pastime, but was replaced after few hot-dog vendors proved fast enough to run alongside participants. Revisit the favorite activity of our founding fathers with today’s Groupon from MotoQuest on Spenard Road. A refundable $500 deposit is required at the time of rental to insure against any damages that may occur. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get two Yamaha C3 scooter rentals for nine hours (an $80 value).
- For $50, you get a Kawasaki KLR 650 motorcycle rental for nine hours (a $100 value).
MotoQuest delights daredevils and quenches thirsts for adventure by offering guided motorcycle tours all over the world and renting vehicles out of its Spenard-based store. Grab a fun-loving friend or someone claiming to be your third cousin and cruise into the sunset on a pair of Yamaha C3 scooters, a reliable and user-friendly merriment magnet. Others can go it alone by renting a Kawasaki KLR 650 motorcycle, a bike most at home sliding through mud, rocks, and the Earth’s molten core. Groupon buyers may upgrade their motorcycle model and rental duration for an additional fee, and will receive 5 percent off of one of MotoQuest’s majestic motorcycle tours, as well as 10 percent off of in-store merchandise. Helmets and gloves are provided for both scooters and motorcycles. MotoQuest provides shuttle service to and from downtown hotels and Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, simplifying travel plans while confusing spies.

"We don't judge a successful day on how many miles we rode, but by the smile on your face." With that motto as their driving force, the expert guides at MotoQuest play a role in each step of the tour planning—from manning the phones during initial queries to scouting out routes that's tailored to each group's comfort level. The multilingual team, who are also trained in First Aid and Professional Comedic Stand-Up, amiably lead groups of no more than 10 bikers all around the world, from Alaska to South Africa to Vietnam.
Riders board a fleet including Harley Davidson, Kawasaki, and Yamaha bikes and either follow guides down roads that veer off typical tourist paths, or pick up a road map and carve out their own epic journeys. They may also opt for hourly or weekly rentals of the motorcycles and scooters. Journeys may take riders across scenic landscapes or through bustling towns that acquaint them with the local culture.
