Rent a Strom in New England

I was listening to the Wheelnerds podcast this week and they interviewed a guy looking to get a business off the ground in Portland, ME. His plan is to have a stable of V-Strom 650s for rent and offer MC tours in Maine and New Hampshire.

I thought I'd give a fellow Strom-lover some publicity.

Surf & Summit Motorcycle LLC

From his site, you can also link to his Wheelnerds interview. Nice story of a guy who gave up what sounded like a well-paying job to work as a motorcycle mechanic in a Suzuki shop.

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.

In the interview, he said he tried doing the guided tour thing first, but couldn't get enough action to make a viable business. That being said, I bet if you reached out to him with a request, he'd be willing to talk.

Nice to see something other than BMWs and Harleys for rent.
