Has anyone ever rented a bike in Las Vegas, California, or other points in the west? I’m planning a trip there in the coming weeks, and want to get myself on a GS for about 7 days. I checked the BMW dealer in Vegas, but rates are pretty high — $200 or so per day.
Anyone have any recommendations on rental (or routes!) ?
I rented an Africa twin from Great Southwest Moto adventures in Las Vegas. Curtis Cummings the owner will allow you to take them off road. He has self-guided tours set up. Give him a call he may give you a deal on a weekly rental. You can also rent wolfman saddle bags and tank bag from him.
I rented a 1200GS from Eagle Rider in San Francisco ~8 years ago. It was a good experience. I slabbed down the I5 to my brother’s house in Van Nuys, then took the Pacific Coast Highway back the next morning. I had to bribe the kid running the shop to keep it open for a few hours longer to let me finish return leg.
I laughed at the big warning sign on their rental agreement: “Nicht Diesel!” You would think the German tourists would know….
