  1. A quick check of a rental says your Las Vegas rates are not as stated above for a December 3-day rental. $110/day for the 750GS… and thats the lowest rate of all bikes.

    • Thanks for calling out the discrepancy. Those are the rates Hertz had directly supplied but we can see the website has slightly different rates. Although $110/day is not the lowest rate – their website shows it is $79/day for a 21+ day rental during the low season. Cheers!

    • Hey Jan, we reached out to Hertz and this is what they said:

      “According to Hertz Ride general terms and conditions bikes are not allowed to be ridden on unpaved roads, for Sports Events or Track Days. We understand that in some destinations there are regional or local roads that are dirt or gravel roads. Therefore, bikes are allowed as long as roads are marked on maps and numbered as public roads.”

      • “ allowed as long as roads are marked on maps and numbered as public roads.”. That’s pretty accommodating for off-road adventure, at least here in Colorado. As far as I understand, that’ll get you down any of the BDRs as well. Now, we just need to convince Hertz to put some knobbies on some of the bikes!

  2. Hard to believe you cant rent a bike by LAX airport. I often use Motoquest to rent a bike to see family out there. I was excited about this. I hope they expand.
