FAQ - General

Q: When should I book my motorcycle rental?
Call or email NOW! The rental schedule is ready to go with many riders and several tour companies already booking their adventure now!
Q: How do I know if the bike I want is available for the dates I want?
Call or email us for current availability. We will "hold" a motorcycle for a few days while you finalize your travel plans and make airline reservations.
Q: Why do I need to fill out a rental application?
The rental application outlines your request, provides us with your contact information, helps us understand your needs, and assists in matching you up with  the right motorcycle.
Q: Where do I pick up my motorcycle?
You will pick up the motorcycle at our Anchorage location just a few minutes from the Anchorage International Airport.  ​
On your first rental day, we provide either hotel pick up at 9:00 AM or airport pickup during our business hours. We will not pick up riders staying at ‘Airbnb’, ‘VRBO’ or ‘B&B’ locations.
 
Q: What time can I pick up my motorcycle?
Your rental day begins anytime after 9:00AM, 7 days a week.
Q: What time do I return my motorcycle?
A rental day ends at 6:00 PM. Please plan for extended travel times and traffic delays on your last rental day. Motorcycles returned after 6:15pm will be charged a $25/hour late fee. 
Q: What luggage is included or available with my rental?
All our motorcycles are equipped with hard-sided panniers. Top case/backrest is available for two-up riders on both the BMW R1200GS and BMW R1200GSA models. 
Q: Does my rental motorcycle have a power outlet?
All our motorcycles have an SAE connector attached to the battery. You are welcome to utilize this connector for your heated gear or USB charger. (Just remember to disconnect the attachments when the motorcycle is not running to avoid draining the battery.) 
BMW models also have a Hella/DIN power outlet. 

Q: Are the motorcycles in good condition?
Yes, they are in excellent condition because they are methodically maintained by certified mechanics.
Q: Does my motorcycle rental include unlimited mileage?
No. The daily rental rate includes 350 miles/day (i.e. 5 day rental includes 1750 miles; 10 day rental includes 3500 miles) Total mileage greater than 350 miles/day will be charged an additional .25 cents per mile. 
Q: Do you rent helmets?
We have a few helmets that we rent for $5.00 per day that are available on a first-come basis. Your own helmet probably fits better and is therefore safer. Full coverage helmets are recommended. Helmet use is mandatory.
Q: Is it safe to ride alone in Alaska?
Yes. The paved roads are well maintained, well-marked, and well-traveled.  Alaskans are very friendly and most will offer basic assistance. However, we recommend traveling the unpaved roads with another buddy riding a motorcycle.
 
Q: Can I ride anywhere?
Not quite! You may travel as far north as the Arctic Circle on all of our dual sport  motorcycles. However, travel beyond the Arctic Circle is restricted. If you want to travel beyond the Arctic Circle, there is a $650.00 USD surcharge. See Remote Destination Travel page for details.
Q: Can I ride my rental motorcycle into Canada?
Yes, you can travel to Canada. The motorcycle registration and insurance card may be requested by the border agent (ask us during motorcycle pickup for more details). We do not offer roadside assistance in Canada so you will need to get the motorcycle to the border and we will meet you there.
