The leading online-motorcycle sharing community offers the LiveWire in San Francisco and Los Angeles 
HICAGO, Ill., December 10, 2019 — Twisted Road, the leading rental service for privately-owned motorcycles in the U.S, today announced they are now offering two Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycles. With more than 2,300 motorcycles for short- or long-term rental, Twisted Road has many classics while others – like Harley-Davidson’s new LiveWire electric motorcycle – are cutting edge.
“These are fantastic additions to our fleet,” said Austin Rothbard, Founder and CEO, Twisted Road. “The owner in the L.A. area is offering the LiveWire for rent exclusively through us, and will even arrange for airport pick up and drop off.”
Twisted Road is unique among motorcycle-sharing services in having a flat, per day charge for all bikes, set by the owner based on how popular or rare the motorcycle is. The LiveWire motorcycles will rent for about $199.00 per day. Like all other Twisted Road bikes, these bikes won’t have mileage restrictions.
“It’s a great way to try out a bike you’ve never ridden before,” said Rothbard, “whether it’s a 21st century electric bike like the LiveWire, that’s perfect for getting around the city, or a vintage beauty like the 1958 BMW R50.”
Twisted Road verifies all potential renters for driver safety, experience, and qualifications. It also offers the best owner insurance protection in the industry, with up to $100,000 of free liability protection and up to $25,000 of damage protection. Owners may choose to increase that liability up to $1 million. After each ride, the rider and owner rate each other, while the rider rates the bike, too. To date 97% of these ratings have been five-star.
Rothbard continued, “We are building the most trusted motorcycle community around–a place for riders to connect with one another over their favorite passion. Riding.”

James Washnok’s 2019 Flying Piston Strider Custom

Story by Diane “Shadow’s Wife” Jones

James Washnok the main man at Baggster, LLC out of South Dakota, a company James has operated since 2013. They specialize in design and manufacturing of parts for Harley-Davidson touring models. James first saw the customized Strider Bikes in 2018 when they were on display at the Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Bike Rally. He was intrigued and told his friend Jeff Najar that he wanted to take part in this program the following year. He was hooked on the idea of customizing a Strider bike that would represent his bagger style. He was also up for the challenge because of his own 3-year-old, son Jett, who started on a rocking-base Strider and had transitioned to a Strider balance bike. James knew he had the perfect test pilot for his Strider “bagger” design. Continue reading James Washnok’s 2019 Flying Piston Strider Custom
