Just happened to come across this site. (Someone posted their bike on CL and it was listed under this website.)

It's called "Riders-share.com". They say they're like AirBnB, only for motorcycles. May be a decent thing, especially for you travelers and/or someone thinking of trying a new bike out but can't find a dealer that will allow test rides.

I've never used Ridersshare before so I don't know if it's good or bad. Anyway, just thought it was neat and, possibly, useful to someone. :grin2:

I might rent one from someone but would never allow someone to rent mine. That is a lot of risk.

Read the "How It Works" section. They seem to have the insurance thing down.

"How does insurance work?

We purchased an insurance policy from Crum & Forster that protects your bike for the duration of the rental. Every rental is covered, whether the renter chooses to purchase protection or not. Your personal policy may not work for rentals, unless it is a commercial type of insurance. On your listing, you will find a link to an insurance card. In the event of a claim, please call our insurance company, Crum & Forster, to file a claim. Bear in mind the limit on our insurance policy for damage is $15,000. You may list more expensive motorcycles than that, and in the event of a total loss accident we will bill the renter the difference. Make sure you take pics before and after each rental using the Check-in feature to ensure insurance covers you.

For full details, please see our Insurance Policy page

I'm not sure I would do this if the bike was older than 2 years and more than 5,000 miles on it. I have seen the poor condition of many "adult maintained" used motorcycles out there. It would have to be a whole lot cheaper than renting from eaglerider. IMO, only those who need money would put their prized possession out for rent and that probably means they are not fastidious with maintenance.

Has anyone else tried Riders Share? I've read bad stories the money-hungry Eagle Rider and customers not being reimbursed after being stranded by crap bikes and paying to have them towed back to the Eagle Rider site. Riders Share never has anything close enough to the Bronx. I was thinking of renting out my bikes but really don't want tons of miles racked up on them that fast - I can do that myself without help. I'm looking to ride a Versys 650.

I'm looking to rent something in Romania, but having difficulties..
I've read where riders buy something used, then sell it at the "end of their adventure".

My nephew bought a bike in Vietnam off another tourist and then sold it to another tourist when he was moving on to another country. Not sure how legal it all was, but the registration stayed with the bike.

I am considering buying a used bike in New Zealand in my Son's name and then have him sell it when I leave. Haven't researched all my options yet.
