Now It’s Easier to Rent a BMW Motorcycle in One of America’s Best Places to Ride


March 10, 2020 Cars : Motorcycles By

Riding a motorcycle is one of the best ways to experience the open road, but it also usually limits you to a fairly small radius around your home base. Knocking out a 1,000-mile road trip in a car is so easy, you don’t even need to think about it; a 1,000-mile journey on a motorcycle, in contrast, requires the sort of physical endurance and preparation usually reserved for military operations. Far better, then, to take alternate transportation to go where you want to ride, then grab a bike once you get there…but that involves finding a place to rent a motorcycle from, and that’s not nearly as easy as doing the same with a car.

Luckily, though, renting a motorcycle and riding some of America’s best roads just got that much easier. Hertz — yes, the people you’ve been renting cars from for yearsis launching a motorcycle rental location in the Los Angeles area that better opens up all of Southern California’s amazing roads to riders from far away.

The Long Beach, CA location of Hertz Ride is actually the third one to pop up in the United States in recent years (the other two are in Las Vegas and Riverside, CA), but its close proximity to Los Angeles International Airport makes it far easier for visitors to pop over and grab a bike. And what a selection they offer: the Hertz crew has a wide variety of 2020 model year BMW motorcycles up for grabs,including the R nineT Scrambler seen above, the K 1600 B and K 1600 GA, the R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT and the F 750 GS.

Better yet: if you book your trip now for any dates until April 30th, you can save 15 percent at any of the three locations. As if you needed another reason to get away from everything right now.
