Got a yen to ride a Harley: Rent one

| 8/23/2002

Nothing beats the wind in your face, the rumble of a V-Twin engine and the excitement that comes from cruising in the saddle of a genuine Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and now Harley-Davidson Authorized Rentals - the only motorcycle rental program backed by Harley-Davidson Motor Company is making it easy to try a Harley.

"We want everyone who has ever dreamed of motorcycling to feel the freedom and thrill that can only be experienced on a Harley," said Forrest Barnes, manager of Harley-Davidson Authorized Rentals & Tours.

At each rental location, customers (over 21) are provided with a certified helmet, rainsuit, lock, luggage, and 24-hour roadside assistance before jumping onto the motorcycle of choice. For truckers with a long layover, maybe a vacation tour on a Harley would fit the bill. Tours generally include a professional tour guide, lodging and most meals. Renting is easy. Log on to or contact your nearest Harley dealer for more details.
