    I ended up in VT on business and decided to rent a bike instead of a car. What a great choice, and both Eric and Spenser were responsive to all my questions. It was very easy to navigate the web-site, reserve my bike, and Eric even picked me up at the airport an hour after the shop closed.

    I rented the BMW F650GS, and it was in great condition, clean, gassed, and ready to go. Eric helped me with a suggested route, stored my bag I wouldn't be needing, and sent me on my way. I couldn't have had a better experience, and would definitely recommend them to everyone. I'll be back next time I'm in VT.

    Vermont is an awesome place to ride. Great roads, with few cars and few stop signs. I even saw a VT moose! I wish I had more time to explore.

    Just got back home to Arizona from a 4 1/2 day jaunt on the back roads through the Gaps, Mt. Washington, Bar Harbor, Moosehead Lake and back to Burlington. Awesome riding on some nice, twisty two lane roads! Love the scenery in the Northeast and will definitely be back for more.
    Rented a 1200GS from MotoVermont for the trip, and it ran great, was in top condition and had no issues. They obviously take great care of their machines and offer the latest models. Mine came with side cases, top case and a tank bag which offered more than enough room for all my junk.
    The service was also top notch, and they were very helpful with trip planning and advice.
    Great trip, great bike, great service! I'll be back for more.

    About a year ago I sold my trusty GS after 10 years of use. I decided to switch strategies. Instead of owning, driving (or flying) and renting. My wife (we ride “two up”) and I call it: Drive n’ Ride (or Fly n’Ride). Instead of maintaining the bike, paying insurance, and driving long highway stretches getting to our desired motorcycle friendly twisty roads, we find good places to rent the BMW of our choice.

    So last week, armed with our gear (already tucked into RT panniers liners), we left Toronto, had a pleasant day’s drive to through the Adirondacks and Vermont, reached South Burlington, dropped our car with Spenser and Eric from MotoVermont, picked up a perfectly equipped RT, and had a blast touring Vermont. No highway driving! Just beautiful routes that Spenser programmed into the GPS. This in itself was such a treat. Not having to spend hours searching for GPX files on the Internet, but instead having it all sitting in our GPS ready to go, was I admit, a huge time saver.

    I will also commend both those guys for the little things that make a difference. Our RT was perfectly equipped with original BMW add-ons. No after market Givi top box, or ill fitting tank bag. This small detail speaks volumes about their approach. It is something I appreciate.

    All in all, It was a joy dealing with both gentleman. From the moment I sent the first email, right to the time I dropped the keys.

    Perfectly positioned, Burlington will serve us well in future road trips to New England, Main, and New York state. We’ll be back for more.

    Think about it: Drive n’ Ride!

    Just finished my 3rd rental with MotoVT, happy all 3 times. The process is easy and the communication is very good. Good gear, and good maps.
    Be aware that they tend to get low suspension GS bikes, so inquire when you rent. For me the lowered 2014 GS was great to try, and easier to live with on those very uneven and hilly New England roads.
