Enjoy a long weekend on a Harley

Oxford (06 June 2012) - If you’re thinking of trying a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle out for size, a free test ride at your local authorised dealership should be your first port of call. However, there are many reasons for you to try one of our bikes for longer.

Perhaps you’re going on holiday and would like to borrow a bike when you reach your destination? Your motorcycle may be in for its service and you can’t wait to get out on the open road. Or, you simply want to try a different Harley-Davidson® model.

Whatever your reason, we currently offer a range of motorcycles to rent from selected dealerships across the UK. If you’re stuck for inspiration, take a look at our suggestions below.

Picturesque Somerset 
The West Country is scattered with picturesque towns and villages to visit and is surrounded in rolling – yet contrasting – countryside. With hills and valleys aplenty as well as a stunning coastline, the area boasts some of the best biking roads in the country. Riders of Bridgwater provide a range of motorcycles for rental in this region.

Silverstone Classic
This year’s Silverstone Classic event (20-22 July) is not to be missed. With on-track activity, live music and aerial displays, there’s something to keep everyone in the family happy. If you fancy rolling up to the circuit on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle, Sycamore Harley-Davidson offers rentals in the Rutland area, which is a mere 40 miles away.

Go for culture in Glasgow 
Glasgow is regarded as one of the most exciting cities in Europe, packed with museums, art galleries and fantastic shopping. The surrounding road network – particularly the sweeping A82 to Inverness – is magical to ride, taking in Loch Lomond and passing Loch Ness. Why not try and spot the monster while you’re there?! Visit West Coast Harley-Davidson for rental motorcycles in this region.

A weekend in London 
The capital is truly buzzing with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and anticipation for the 2012 Olympics, so there’s never been a better time to visit London. Warr’s Harley-Davidson offer rental motorcycles from both their Mottingham Road and Kings Road dealerships.

Stunning Suffolk 
From the wetland broads and the wool towns, to the countryside and the coast, Suffolk is becoming a popular holiday destination. If you’re considering Suffolk for a short break, visit Black Bear Harley-Davidson in Newmarket, which has a number of Harley-Davidson® motorcycles available for rent.

South of England
Box Hill (A24) is one of the most popular biking haunts in the south of England. An area of outstanding natural beauty and part of the National Trust, the road is frequently ridden by motorcyclists of all genres. If you fancy navigating the hill and thundering up to the infamous Ryka’s Café on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle, then visit nearby Guildford Harley-Davidson, which offers rentals.

All you need to rent a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is a full and valid driver’s licence with a valid motorcycle endorsement and a major credit card. And, if you’ve never ridden a Harley-Davidson motorcycle before, you’ll need to make sure that you’re comfortable riding a larger bike.

All rental motorcycles come complete with an H-D® country-approved helmet and raingear, short-term luggage storage and 24-hour roadside assistance.
