LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 17th EagleRider Holdings announced the launch of their new sharing platform, EagleShare, which connects private owners, rental companies, and dealers of motorcycles, ATVs, side by sides, snowmobiles, and more with rental customers from around the world.

Since the announcement, EagleShare has received hundreds of uploads from motorcycle and powersports owners, rental companies and dealers, and is set to make all vehicles available for rent beginning on May 5, 2021 at www.eagleshare.com.
Share your motorcycle and earn an average of $775 per month with EagleShare, the world’s most trusted powersport and motorcycle rental marketplace.

"What sets EagleShare apart from other sharing platforms is that we offer our owners and customers the benefit of working with a company that brings almost 30 years of motorcycle and powersports rental and tour expertise to the table," said Karsten Summers, Chief Executive Officer of EagleRider Holdings.  "Our websites welcome millions of visitors each year that are looking for fun and unique rental experiences; giving private and commercial hosts that list their vehicle on EagleShare instant access to the largest motorcycle and powersports rental customer base in the world," added Summers.

Private and commercial hosts that list vehicles on EagleShare are protected by the platform's industry leading insurance, which includes up to $1,000,000 in third party liability, and up to $25,000 for damage while their vehicle is on rent through EagleShare.  Potential renters are screened for a valid motorcycle endorsement, as well as several other factors.  Vehicle owners may approve or deny any request.

EagleShare rental customers can browse the site and make reservations knowing that all hosts and vehicles have also undergone a comprehensive screening and review process to ensure they can expect the same level of quality and service they have enjoyed with EagleRider Holdings' other rental entities over the years.

EagleRider Holdings was founded in 1992 with four bikes in the garage of a home in San Pedro, California. Today, EagleRider is a household name with motorcycle and powersports enthusiasts from around the world, with a footprint of more than 160 locations across five continents. Three brands anchor the company:  EagleRider Rentals and Tours, which welcomes more than 100,000 customers annually; Club EagleRider, a motorcycle and powersports subscription available in the US and Canada; and its peer-to-peer sharing platform, EagleShare.

Shooting the bull / Ducati does well in 1st quarter of 2021
« Last post by Biketographer on April 29, 2021, 06:43:33 am »

BOLOGNA, Italy, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ducati concludes the first quarter of 2021 positively, continuing the upward trend that began in the second half of 2020. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer delivered 12,803 bikes from January to March, recording an increase in sales of +33% compared to the same period in 2020. Sales are also up 2% compared to the first quarter of 2019, the last reference year not impacted by the pandemic.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO: "The performance in the first months of 2021 is certainly very positive. Motorcycles delivered to customers in the first quarter of the year grew not only compared to 2020, already impacted by Covid, but also compared to 2019. Even more remarkable is the size of the order portfolio (motorcycles to be delivered) at the end of the quarter, which is the best-ever, with an extraordinary 93% growth compared to 2020 and +135% compared to 2019. Enthusiasts are appreciating the 2021 range and the family of Ducatisti is expanding. The global market situation is positive in the world of two wheels, while the supply and transport sectors are much more complex, with delivery delays and a shortage of various raw materials. This makes it difficult to satisfy all the demand from our passionate customers, but at Ducati we are strongly motivated to do everything we can to reduce the inconvenience caused by this situation. I want to thank all the women and men who, in Borgo Panigale and in our subsidiaries around the world, are working with great commitment in this period of high seasonality."

In the first quarter of 2021, Italy confirmed its position as the main market for Ducati with 2,354 motorcycles delivered, followed by the USA with 1,723 and Germany with 1,275 units. The Ducati Scrambler 800 range is the best performing in the quarter, while the Multistrada V4 is the model most delivered to customers, followed by the Streetfighter V4.

NICE photo.   Who did it?
And where?  Looks like a track-day.

Track day at Putnam Park in Indiana. I'm fairly sure Joseph Hansen shot that one. That track is pretty fun. I don't think they do bike races there, but it's a blast for track days.
Guy Martin, British TV host and motorcycle racer, will attempt to be the fastest human on two wheels in the near future. He's going to get there with the help of a team led by another former motorcycle racer and veteran of a variety of land speed record teams, Alex Macfadzean. Their vehicle of choice: a custom-built bike with a helicopter turbine engine.

Shooting the bull / Regaining privacy from web-browsing trackers

I just installed Privacy Badger in my firefox browser.  Only took a few seconds to do.

Shooting the bull / Motomarathon June 1-4, 2021
« Last post by Biketographer on April 21, 2021, 05:04:23 am »
NEW YORK, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With the New York Adirondack Motomarathon scheduled for June 1-4 based out of North River, NY, the first organized motorcycle sport-touring event format is back in action after the covid hiatus.

NY State Adirondack Motomarathon. Lodging at the Garnet Hill Lodge, North River, NY. Please see Event Page for further information. 

After moving its headquarters from Colorado to the East Coast last year, the iconic Motomarathon Association will retain its original format developed over more than 30 years of organized group riding that compresses as many twisty and scenic roads as possible into a four-day motorcycle vacation.

Motomarathons have been run in virtually every popular riding area in America, from the Rocky Mountains to the California Coastal Ranges and Pacific Northwest, from the Ozarks to the Great Smokies, and from the Great Lakes to New England.

Routes are designed by local experts and kept secret until the evening before each day's ride. Participants complete a series of self-recorded checkpoints, photographing their badge numbers at designated landmarks to validate their completion of the route. These checkpoints are recorded by the Motomarathon Association for event, annual and lifetime standings.

"Motomarathon is the perfect post-pandemic pastime, and the Adirondack Mountains have some of the best riding roads in the country," said new owner John Bossolt, who takes over the reins from founder John Metzger. "Long-distance motorcycle sport-touring may be one of the purest forms of individual recreation that can be shared with others, but with virtually zero contact."

Metzger, author of two books on the subject – Meditation by Motorcycle and Motorcycling Through Midlife – continues on as an advisor.

For more information, see Motomarathon on Facebook, or visit www.motomarathon.com.
