EagleRider Pittsburgh to provide rentals for Das Rally

Renting a motorcycle in the U.S. has become increasingly popular over the past 20 years. Rather than shipping your bike to a location where you want to ride, motorcycle rental companies such as EagleRider have made it easier and more affordable to rent a bike at your destination; unless that location happened to be in the Appalachian Mountain region. The Appalachian Mountains are one of the best riding areas in the country, which has largely been skipped over by this new industry. However, that all changed in May of 2015 when EagleRider Pittsburgh opened its doors in Carnegie, Pennsylvania.
The franchise is the latest acquisition of local entrepreneur, avid GS Adventure rider, and BMW MOA member: Richard Hagerty. EagleRider Pittsburgh features a full line of BMW touring, adventure, and sport motorcycles. Other brands are also available to rent as well as helmets, jackets, GPS, camping gear, and Go-Pro cameras. The staff is determined to offer the best customer service in the industry including never charging for routing service. EagleRider Pittsburgh also offers self-guided and fully guided tours that range from 2 to 15 nights, featuring destinations such as the West Virginia Highlands, Blue Ridge Parkway, Deals Gap, or Niagara Falls.
EagleRider Pittsburgh has a special offer for BMW MOA members looking to rent a motorcycle and attend this summer’s international Das Rally in Hamburg, NY. Members will receive 10% off of any motorcycle rental, free full face helmet and jacket if needed, and free transportation to and from the airport or local hotels.
On the morning of July 14, at 9:00 am, an organized ride equipped with a guide and support van will leave EagleRider Pittsburgh for a 250-mile scenic ride to the rally. All MOA members are welcome to join us for the ride, even if you’re not renting.
EagleRider General Manager Paul Cupp will lead the ride, heading north to PA 666, riding through the Allegheny National Forest with stops at Kinzua Dam in Pennsylvania, and at Lake Chautauqau, NY for lunch. Arrival at the rally should be around 6 p.m. Once at the rally, stop by our booth in the outdoor vendor area for routing and area information for your day rides. On the morning of the 17th, we’ll gather at the EagleRider Pittsburgh tent to begin another scenic ride back to Pittsburgh. If you have any questions, call Paul at 412-276-1300.
For anyone who lives “too far away,” EagleRider Pittsburgh has made it easy to attend this year’s rally. There are no more excuses. See you in July!
