If you are looking for a hands-on, wind-in-your-face, bugs-in-your-teeth approach to touring Las Vegas and the surrounding Nevada desert, motorcycle rental offers a unique and unfettered way to explore Sin City and Nevada's un-crowded open roads. There are about a half dozen reputable cruising, off-road, and racing motorcycle rental companies in Las Vegas. But nothing—not even a Hummer limousine or an Excursion limousine—commands respect on the Las Vegas Strip like a rumbling, grumbling Harley Davidson. So if you've arrived in Las Vegas without your ‘Hog' don't worry, Las Vegas offers excellent motorcycle rental agencies to serve you.
Blue Sky Motorcycle Rental is a trusted name in Las Vegas motorcycle rentals. With unlimited mileage, 24-hour road side services, helmets, and riding gloves all included in the rental price, Blue Sky Motorcycle Rental is one of the most comprehensive and safe Vegas motorcycle rental companies. Blue Sky has over 20 motorcycles at the ready during the high season, including the new Honda Goldwing GL1800. Just three blocks from the Strip, and 5 minutes from McCarran International Airport, Blue Sky is one of the most easily accessible motorcycle rentals Las Vegas offers.
EagleRider is another of the well-established Vegas motorcycle rental companies. One of the largest Las Vegas motorcycle rentals available, EagleRider is the best choice if you wish to cruise outside of Vegas. Indeed, the best thing about Las Vegas motorcycle rentals is the freedom they offer. A motorcycle provides the opportunity to get out of Vegas and tour the surrounding regions on your own, or with one of the guided tours offered by Las Vegas Motorcyle rental companies.
If you are riding a Harley Davidson, the best day trips outside of Las Vegas are the beautiful Mt Charleston and Red Rock tours. But if you want to get down and dirty, the desert surrounding Las Vegas is the perfect place for off-roading. Vegas Offroad offers tours in the nearby Nelson Hills and Jean, Nevada areas. Vegas Offroad rents dirt bikes and has excellent guides and technicians that accompany you on your trail riding experience. The cost for a full day of adventure is $350. Las Vegas is also the departure and ending destination for many one-week and two-week motorcycle tours of Death Valley, California, Yosemite National Park, and the Mammoth Lakes.
The rates on motorcycle rentals Las Vegas offers depend on the type of motorcycle you rent and if you are renting in the high season. Motorcycles are usually rented on a day or week long rate, and all but the off-road desert tours require a $1000 insurance deposit and a motorcycle license.
It is important to remember that Las Vegas motorcycle rentals require a tremendous amount of responsibility on the part of the driver. Unlike limos or party buses that offer fully stocked bars and responsible chauffeurs, Vegas motorcycle rentals offer freedom at the price of responsibility and knowledge.
