Back to How It WorksHelp For Owners

What are the advantages of Riders Share over old school rentals?

  1. Variety of low prices, locations and bikes
  2. Unlimited mileage (unless owner otherwise states so, which is rare)
  3. Flexible cancellation policies
  4. You get the exact bike you pick
  5. You help riders afford their bike....or get more bikes!

What are the requirements to rent using Riders Share?

We are very strict about who can rent to keep the platform as safe as possible. To be able to rent:

  • 21 or older
  • Credit Card only
  • Valid motorcycle license (or equivalent), unless the vehicle does not require it. We do not take temporary licenses unless you have had a prior motorcycle license before.
  • Allow us to run a background check when you book motorcycle to look at your driving record and credit score

How does it work?

  1. Pick a bike, a damage waiver option and then request a booking. You will receive the owner email and phone number.
  2. Owner has 12 hours to approve or else we 100% refund you.
  3. Exact location of bike revealed upon approval, along with important info via an email from Riders Share
  4. Ride day! Meet the owner, show your license (and passport if non-US), document preexisting damage on the bike, get the keys and get going! Please be safe and wear a helmet.
  5. Remember, only YOU can ride the bike. Do not lend it to anyone else.
  6. Make sure the bike's steering wheel is always locked when you are not riding it. If available, always use the wheel lock too.
  7. Upon return, document the bike again for damage. Call the number on the insurance card for claims if you purchased insurance

We would love to hear from your trip. Send pictures, experiences, comments and suggestions to support@riders-share.com.

What about gear?

You may bring your own or rent it from the owners. Some of them will let you borrow it for free! You can use the filters in search results to find motorcycles that come with gear.

Is unlimited mileage included?

Yes! However, some owners may choose to limit mileage. If so, they will clearly state it in their motorcycle listing.

What about fuel?

Please be courteous and return the bike with a full gas tank, and you may be rewarded with 5 star reviews. If you return the gas tank below what the owner provided you, the owner may charge you for the difference.

There are reviews?

Yes, you have 7 days to leave a review from the end of the trip.
