Road trip!

Thanks to a new deal, taking a two-wheeler on a one-way road trip just became a possibility.

As part of an exclusive partnership between Harley-Davidson and tour operator EagleRider, customers will be able to pick up a motorcycle on one side of the country and drop it off, well, pretty much anywhere. The new motorcycles will be available at all 59 EagleRider locations in the U.S. that already rent Harleys, as well as at some of H-D’s 700 U.S. dealerships.

The arrangement is a win-win for both companies as well as prospective easy riders nationwide.  

“It’s a dream of millions of riders across the world to explore America in the most authentic way possible, on an iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle,” said EagleRider cofounder McIntyre. “For the past 25 years, we’ve seen riders return from their trips completely transformed by finding freedom of the open road to be the ultimate adventure vacation.”

While his firm is already renting the bikes from its own locations, he estimated 30 to 40 Harley dealerships could contain EagleRider stations by the end of this year, the LA Times reports.
