Of Hell's Angels and Highways: The Motorcycle Rental Experience in Las Vegas

Sep 8, 2008
"With the throttle screwed on there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes... that's when the strange music starts... fear becomes exhilaration (and the)... only sounds are the wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers." That's Hunter S. Thompson sharing the joys of motorcycling in his 1966 book "Hells Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs."

And avid motorcyclists could not agree more. Especially not in the city of Las Vegas where the annual Bikefest is a staple and essential event. And the admiration that riders feel for motorcycling is but utterly understandable. There is definitely a different sensation to be riding out in the open. The direct connection of the rider and the natural elements is something that a "compartmentalized ride" (like say, of a car) cannot give.

True, a motorcycle might not be everyone's cup of tea. But a deviation from the mundane can do wonders for you. Imagine yourself on that long awaited road trip to see the Grand Canyons or to ride up to Hoover Dam. Now amp up the experience with a motorcycle. There's no way you can say "no" to this, not even if you say that you don't have a ride of your own. Because in this day and age, if you don't have it; buy it. And if you can't buy it; you can always rent it.

For one, the carefree speed in the open roads is a natural high, a transcendence from just being "on the road" to being "one with the road." Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" describes the sensation as something, which "compels the rider into what exist now, the present(leaving)less room for agonizing about tomorrow, or second-guessing the past." Because the ride leaves one exposed to the surroundings, there is a heightened awareness and a sensitivity of the senses.

Then Milan Kundera in his 1996 book "Slowness," had this to say about the journey on a motorcycle "speed is the form of ecstasy the technical revolution has bestowed on man."

These are the feelings that motorcyclists live for and sometimes even write about. If you have tried traveling on a motorcycle, then you certainly know what I am talking about. But if you're one that has not tried experiencing the road with such openness and vulnerability to nature, I suggest you get yourself one.

You can always buy books, and together with the author, imagine what its feels like to be on a motorcycle. But if you want more than that, then you can have more than that.

Motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas can give you the real experience that books talk about. Want to ride a Ducati, a Honda, a Yamaha, or a Harley Davidson? Motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas have it all. If you want more of those Harley's then there are also Harley rental providers that can book you a ride for a trip around Las Vegas. Want the Road King, The Electra Glide, or the Fat Boy? They have it all. Motorcycle and Harley rental dealers in Las Vegas are waiting for you to make the decision.

So what's it going to be? Do you want to just take on the road within the limits of your imagination? Or do you want to take a first hand ride with the real thing? The choice is up to you.
