I recently rented a motorcycle and took a road trip, something I have been wanting to do a long time. It was great and I enjoyed myself immensely, once I got a handle on the beast-
It’s an amazing machine- smooth and comfortable on the freeway, nimble in the twisties, incredibly powerful anytime you open the throttle. Of course considering how much the damn thing costs it should be an incredible machine. My one real criticism is the seat- my butt was pretty sore after two days, and a machine like this you should be able to ride all day for a week.
My lesser criticism is the size- at over 500 pounds it’s a pain at low speeds. I wouldn’t want one for daily city driving because parking and handling at low speeds is a bit nerve-wracking. Great for long trips in the backcountry- it makes the dullest drive an adventure- but I would not call it versatile.
The company is Eagle Rider- www.eaglerider.com– and as the name implies they mainly rent Harleys but they have other models as well, although availability seems to be quite limited.
