Have you been itching to take an Indian motorcycle on an extended test ride? Have you ever dreamed of riding the best roads America has to offer but don't have time to haul or ride your bike to get there? These are some of the questions that motorcyclists find themselves asking time and time again, and Indian Motorcycle has come up with the answer with its first-ever rental program: Indian Motorcycle Rentals.

With 10 dealerships currently participating in the program’s rollout, motorcyclists can now explore alternative options to car rentals when traveling, but the possibilities don’t end there. Prospective Indian buyers now have the ability to put some serious miles on bike before forking over the dough to buy one. But the locations of the initial participating dealerships is especially exciting. Two are along the California coast, three are in the Smoky Mountains region, one is on the East Coast, one is along the Mississippi River, one is in central Texas, and one is situated inland of Los Angeles. The riding possibilities are nearly endless in those areas, and many of the local roads are world-renowned for riding.

An important part of the program is the availability of different models in the Indian fleet so that renters can select the best possible motorcycle for their specific needs and skill set. With fleet vehicles being updated every 12 to 18 months, renters can enjoy riding a current model year motorcycle with every rental.

Reserving a rental Indian motorcycle is easy and can be done online through the dealership’s rentals page. Of course, a motorcycle license or endorsement is required, but having personal motorcycle insurance is not. If you’re currently in between bikes or thinking about getting your first one, Indian Motorcycle Rentals covers riders under the program’s insurance as long as the renter signs the proper waivers.

Naturally, proper motorcycle riding gear is required, which includes a full or three-quarter helmet, eye protection, long pants, and closed-toed shoes. Rental locations will have helmets available, since lugging a helmet around can be a pain, but renters are responsible for the rest.

Rentals are available for periods as short as four hours or as long as several weeks, allowing for just about any kind of need a rider may have. For more information, visit Indian Motorcycle Rentals.
