It isn’t always easy being a dad. Sometimes a guy just wants to rip off his catcher’s mitt and hit the road – on a thundering two-wheeler. No motorcycle? No problem. You can rent one and get a deal too.
The deal: EagleRider, which bills itself as the world’s largest motorcycle rental company, is offering what it calls a Father’s Day Special, which is actually good all this month and not just for dads. It gives renters an extra day of on-the-road freedom on the house when they book two or more days.
The offer is good on everything from cruisers and sport bikes to scooters, touring bikes, even trikes. Twenty-one types of rides are available from Harley-Davidson, Honda, BMW, Triumph and Vespa. Prices range from $35 per day for a Vespa LX 50 to $133 for a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide to $245 per day for a Honda Goldwing trike.
The fine print: The special is available at most of EagleRider’s 70 U.S. locations, except EagleRider Los Angeles; Las Vegas BMW; Houston-Stafford; Stuart, Fla.; Dallas; Jackson Hole, Wyo.; and Billings, Mont. Riders must be at least 21 years old and have a valid motorcycle license. Mileage is unlimited. Fill-ups are on the rider, but helmets are required in most locations, so they’re provided free.
