If people are willing to pay for it, then there's no reason why he shouldn't provide the service and attempt to profit from it.

Lots of people away their money. I just wish I could be one of them. Luckily, I have people that let me ride their bikes all the time so I this is not a service that I need or can afford.

what about the $19 rental car insurance????

i think the $2000 dep is too high. You might as well be renting off lambos.

$2000 dep back if you are in a not-at-fault accident?

Deposit back for theft?

Deposit back for a flat back tire?

Deposit back for a scratch on the tank from a belt buckle?

I really think you are going to be making a mistake. You might want to open a night club instead.

Are there extra insurances available per day? if so then maybe a good way to test before you buy.

prices need to be sorted out but it's a good idea. might be a good idea for youto get a couple 250s and 500s. only people that have sucessfully returned 250 like twice and 500s like three times can rent a 600cc bike. and return a 600 twice to get a 1000. i would def get lojack on EVERY bike and maybe some sort of gps system to track where they are.

You need a 250 for license tests.

Yea i like the idea but i have to agree with some of the posts ur crazy but more power too you. But id like to see more of what will keep you from getting the deposit back as well. And why only sport bikes? Might have a better response if you try a few cruisers as well. But GL with this idea man. And you might wanna see if they can ride the bikes before you let them get off ur lot, just having a license doesnt make me feel safe about some people that ride.

It's a good idea, it obviously works for the HD's and such so why not the sportbikes. The deposit seems kinda steep though. g/l.

Yeah true, but as opposed to the HD's, sportbikes are going to draw a much younger/dumber crowd. G/L though
