Question Gulf Shores Bike Rental...?

Leaving for a trip to Gulf Shores on Saturday, and will be there on family vacation for a week. I'm not a beach guy, so looking at options to keep me occupied...but not seeing much in the way of motorbike rental in the area?

From Googlin' it looks like Mobile HD may be the only option? Weigh-in from the locals...?

You can rent scooters in Gulf Shores. Look at Pensacola for rentals too, its closer than Mobile.

Was hoping for something bigger than a scooter, but two wheels are two wheels...right?!
Thanks for the Pensacola tip, I'll expand my search.

The Pensacola Area riders thread is the most active in this area. Great guys that I ride with whenever I'm able.

I just got back from Gulf Shores Monday. Fortunately my wife has some friends that go with us so I'm able to travel alone and rode my bike down. This was our 4th trip down there first time to do it on two wheels though. Made it a two day trip each way. Will definitely do it again. Enjoy your stay

Thanks, we just got back last night. What were you on? I didn't see many bikes, and the ones I did see were HDs. Did see a couple of GSs on the way down though.

Tiger 800 roadie. Saw a group of HDs come in the day before I left but not many bikes on the way home, due to the rain I guess. Didn't do much riding while I was there except to the golf courses with my golf bag strapped on.

Sorry I missed this. I live about a hundred miles north of GS and would have let you borrow one of my dualsports.....shoot me a PM if you come back...

Sorry for the slow reply. For some reason I didn't get a post notifier.

Nothing close. The only thing I found was HDs out of Mobile.
