Does anyone have any experience with Riders Share, as a renter or a lessor? What has your experience been like? Would you recommend it to others?

Interesting idea.

No way I could see myself renting out any of my personal bikes, (i think it's geared more for people with small rental fleets anyway) but I see a lot on there that look like nice bikes for relatively cheap day rentals, I could see this as a good way to get some riding in when I'm on a trip someplace without my bike. The only question might be the condition of the bike?

I'd love to hear from someone who has tried it as well.

No way in hell I'd let anyone I didn't know ride my bike.

Looks like it's basically Turo, but for motorcycles. I dig it! I'd never offer my own bikes but I'd totally be a renter, if only so I could experience every bike imaginable.

I have started talking about a reciprocal arrangement. Friend George has a cousin who lives in Castletown IOM. He is a Marshal for the TT races. Rides a Huyabusa and other bikes.
I have offered him a bike to ride, if he visits our Island. He has offered a place to stay on his Island, and a bike to ride.

I think it's definitely a viable business - it's available in every city in the US now with a ton of bikes. A lot cheaper than any competitors as well.
