Website looks great! Good job all around.

I hope the tourists just pouring out of the airport and into your shuttle vehicle. Best wishes for a successful venture!

Thanks Guys Much credit to my buddy Jesse, West branch photography who took most of the photos on the site. (all the good ones) He does a lot of work for Stowe Mountain as well as weddings, yada yada.... but I'm pretty sure he likes moto photography the best!

Here are some shots of him in action.....






And some of Jesse's shots.....

Thumb First Customer

I had the distinct pleasure of being Eric's first customer. I was in Vermont on business and found that I had a day free. I remembered seeing something about being able to rent BMW's in Vermont on a posting and after a quick search I found MotoVermont. Eric was great to deal with and I was soon motoring down the beautiful hi-ways of Vermont on an R1200RT with all the gear I needed. It was a great experience and I highly recommend Eric and MotoVermont, great way to site see in beautiful Vermont!

Talking great owner, immaculate bikes, gorgeous surroundings

Eric thank you soo much for opening your shop in vermont! I'm sure you understand how much we need a guy like you out there making these dreams a reality. The kind of riding we did, and the experience we had just would not have been if it weren't for your shop (motovermont.) For the others reading this, my girlfriend and I took out the oh-so-sexy F800ST this month from the 7th to the 11th, revisiting vermont, massachusetts and new hampshire for the first time in ten years since I moved to seattle (and first time ever for anna.) As only riders know, there is no better way to experience your surroundings than to be on a bike.. simply put there is no better way to take it all in. Ten years ago, I think at the time I was just enamored by driving myself around in my pickup (I'm thirty now) and it just never really occurred to me that I was missing out on anything. I would drive myself from place to place, in a way I can only compare to looking only at the ground in front of your feet while walking through town. Route 30 / rt 7 / rt 9 in vermont, new hampshire, rt 202, 116, 47 boston, amherst, northampton, pelham, new salem, montague and all of the 'back roads' up into brattleboro through warwick and royalston were just incredible. Where else can you see real history, 200 year old stone walls, offset A-frame post and beam houses, apple orchards, maple-lined town commons and the familiar white church steeple of the upcoming town. The northeast is a GEM and though I felt I knew what I had when I lived there, it truly 'hit home' with me on this trip.

It was outstanding having Eric on the line through all of my flight delays on the way out there, holding down the fort and being extremely accommodating. I also appreciated the consult about road condition and weather before leaving seattle, the very kind and easy-going professionalism and of course I appreciate the immaculate condition of his bikes. This trip has opened my eyes on my old home in the NE, and we will be back again soon. Eric, thanks again and take care of yourself.

@DoubleM, for real isn't it just impossible to find anything other than harleys? I was looking in Mass, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and was just out of luck. I found one single Yamaha yzf1300 in CT and somebody rented it something like five minutes before I called back to rent it. Honestly I flew into Burlington specifically because of MotoVermont, and more than happy to have Burlington as a home-base.. the town itself is beautiful, easy to get in and out. I'm also more than happy everything happened as it did so we rented through Eric. There appears to be one big conglomerate that handles motorcycle rentals nationwide and it was driving me up a wall to see nothing but harleys in the NE.
