Would You Rent Out Your Motorcycle?

Rent out your motorcycle? It's becoming more popular

https://usat.ly/2JUTeYi

MILWAUKEE -- Some people would have a hard time letting their beloved motorcycle roll off with a stranger, but itís become more common due to the*digital economy.

It works like Airbnb, the website that lets people rent out their own apartments or houses. In this case, a few Internet-based services connect*motorcyclists with others throughout the country who want to make a little extra cash by renting out their bikes.

Launched last October*in Texas, the service has since gone nationwide and now has about 600 bikes for rent and more than 5,000 registered users.

I have heard of ride share before and if it was my second or third bike and one I was thinking about selling anyway I might but my primary bike I probably wouldn’t. I have used Turo before to rent a Tesla for the weekend.
I imagine like Turo people will keep extra bikes to rent like a business. I imagine this would be more lucrative with bikes as it won’t be as much if an investment for the stuff people want to rent and you can charge pretty much the same as the car rental.
I paid 150day to drive a 140k car where I could charge 100-150day for renting a brand new RSV4 for 15k or a Haley Sportster for 8-10k.
As far as insurance most have a section that covers ride share use so I imagine it would be a similar coverage to make sure your covered.
