I dont want to post this thread as it serves no purpose to the OP, he was asking a simple question of rent vs purchase and sell.... unless you have something helpful to contribute, why even open your mouth at all?
It does serve a good purpose. It's not about being lucky, it's about choosing wisely. You don't need a huge budget to do things in life. I like living within my means, and I do not like owning anything I can't fix myself at any given time with basic tools. I also enjoy re-using things and giving old things new life.
Sure, for 3k one can not buy a decent Harley, but there are other cruisers to be had for that much that will definitely make it around the country a few times if the necessary preparations are made.

I made the brand joke because I see a duc in your sig. Those are pretty expensive yet are not known for their reliability.

i am under the impression that the Russian riders only have 20 days to cover 7000 miles and they are looking for the best turn key solution, dont know if they will have any time for bike shopping and preparations.

As far as the reliability of ducs, i can say that its just like any other brand, if you keep up with the factory maintenace schedule, everything should be fine, i had mine since 2007 and never had any problems with it and believe me when i say that i do like to ride hard!
