Groups and Clubs Motorcycle Rentals

Dear Fellow Riders,

As a Sport touring enthusiast, I am one to take on new experiences and run through the twisties spanning hundreds of miles of the Northern a California ridgelines, and enjoying the endless curves of the National forests also holds its own special thrill. Recently, I have turned this passion into an opportunity to share my love for riding by opening a Sport Touring Motorcycle Rental agency in San Francisco, CA.

Northern California is central to many “bucket list” style adventures. I also recognize that these adventures are often shared with travel friends and partners. To that end, I have created a riders club program that allows groups of 4 or more riders to travel into San Francisco, pick up a late model sport touring bike with panniers, turn on your pre-programmed GPS, and begin riding!

From sky diving and seaplane tours in Santa Cruz, to wine tours and balloon rides in the Napa Valley Wine Country, to Helicopter Tours and Power Hang Gliders in beautiful Lake Tahoe. The possibilities are endless and worth repeating season after season with a new adventure each year!

Group rentals of five days or more, includes your choice of an adventure pass to one of our seasonal attractions or a rental extension of two free days. There are other package options and upgrades available, including non-riding transportation options and companion passes. Please call me with your travel dates and we will customize a group adventure, secure your bike choices, and make all of the necessary arrangements with the adventure operators. All you will have to do is arrive ready to enjoy the Northern California experience.

WOW!!!! I just rode the new 2017 Ducati 950 Multistrada. It was a brilliant move on Ducati's part to use the 1200 Multistrada Enduro Chassis for this new model. Very possibly the best sorted production motorcycle I have ever ridden. My test loop includes a twisty section with whoop-dee-doos spread through them. Only the BWM S1000XR in Dynamic Suspension mode felt as composed as this bike speeding through this section, no other bike comes close. This 950 is also stellar in its ability to seamlessly change direction while leaned over in challenging situations. I can easily see it owning the canyons .

What I like most about the smaller Multistrada is the light and precise steering. It will be a perfect bike to ride over the steep and twisty Sierra passes when they open in June. The light feel yet high speed stability is no doubt achieved through a masterful combination of using the 19" front wheel to allow some latitude with the geometry.

The engine is as smooth as a fresh jar of Skippy and strong throughout the range with none of the on - off switch feeling of some Ducatis and no dead spots. Being a fan of 1200cc bikes it is a major compliment to the 950 to say this may actually become my favorite bike to ride. It is after all essentially a liter performance version of the 1200cc cousin.

I also had the opportunity to experience it under emergency conditions when a car pulled out in front of me. Super-composed, it was very easy to steer to a safe exit under very hard braking. I love the bike and can't wait to get mine and break it in.

No real short-comings. Granted – I was only on it for about 45 minutes. If I had to nit-pick, I would want cruise control for the slab stints but there is an after-market solution to add cruise. If the 950 Multistrada is on your short list, just get it, you won't be disappointed.

Special shout out to Andy at Munroe Motors of San Francisco for insisting I take it out for a spin. Best bike of the year IMHO.
