William paid $200 a couple of weeks in advance to rent a Harley Road Glide and enjoy a trip in a sunny part of the country. He showed up at the motorcycle rentals shop, and they told him "Sorry, no bikes available".
He asked for a refund, and the shop promised a refund. Two weeks later, still no refund, and they aren't returning his calls.
We think that is insane. Understandably, bikes sometimes break down , and we have to be safe. But there has to be a better way.
And we found one. There are 9 million registered motorcycles in the US that owners are paying for; and on average, they only get 3,000 miles per year on them.
We exist to make motorcycle rentals easy by tapping into this potential. We are a motorcycle peer-to-peer rentals startup: we connect riders that want to rent motorcycles to unused motorcycles.
We make it possible by screening renters, providing a safe online payments platform, and by buying specialty insurance protection for the rentals.
Brendon and I (Guillermo) are happy to talk to you over the phone or email. We will gladly take your input. Our end goal: to make renting a motorcycle more affordable than owning one on a per mile basis.
