I need to borrow bike?

Well, this is a wierd request. I am going on leave in Dec to visit family in ATL. My wife and I are taking the new kid home to show him off. I ride a 650everyday and whenever I go home am dying to go riding (mainly in the mtns). So, I was hoping someone in the area had a bike I could borrow, rent or something. None of my friends at home ride. I don't care if it is a ninja 250. I might have to break down and buy a beater to get around on. Any leads or helpful ideas would be appreciated. Thanks. Jeremiah

Try this: www.bnm.com/eagle.htm

All they rent are Harley's, but I bet you could use google and find some other places that rent bikes. For the price, I would get the Sportster and hit the mountains.

Sounds like you have the fever. If you go 200 miles up to Knoxville you can rent an ST 1300 or Gold Wing from Eagle Riders. I rented an ST and had a blast last year. Otherwise you are probably on a Harley.

Yeah............mainly HD's around here or my neck of the woods.

I do know they are expecting some rain in the area so I don't think you will get in much pleasure riding during your visit.

Hey, I thought about a Harley. I might go that way. I would hate to rent a Harley and return the bike with no foot pegs I grew up in those mountains and have been all over the country and there no place like the those roads. I have the fever. Rain doesn't bother me, I live in Seattle now and road race in the rain, not as fun but still worth it! Thanks ya'll!
