Birmingham, AL area info needed.

I'm riding up to the Barber Vintage Motorcycle festival next month. My son might fly in from Colorado Springs for the weekend. Anyone know of any motorcycle rental places in the Birmingham area? None of the HD dealers have rentals and it doesn't look like Eaglerider.com operates in the area.

There are Eagle Rider agencies in Atlanta and Nashville. Neither is all that far from Brimingham.

Thanks, saw that. Looks like he may be flying into Atlanta. Found it interesting that it doesn't look like there is any place to rent a motorcycle in all of AL. Wonder if there is some insurance law or something prohibiting this.

If he's flying into Atlanta, he can rent from Wow motorcycles just north of Atlanta in Marietta. I believe that they are an Eagle Rider vendor. They had different bikes the last time I stopped in. There's also a couple HD dealers in the area as well.

Motorcycles are a fairly small market in Alabama. That, and the fact that it doesn't have any well know roads, would make it hard for the owner of such a business to make any money. The state isn't unfriendly to riders, it just isn't part of the culture the way it is in other places.

Rocket Harley in the Madison/Huntsville/Decatur are still shows a rental link http://www.rocketharley.com/ middle right on page,
on their website but when clicked on it doesn't seem to take you anywhere. You may want to give them a call to confirm. If they did in fact rent that would put you around 100 miles from Bham, all I65S or there are backroads to get you to Barbers.
