We started High Road to give everyone the opportunity to see Northern California the way we do. We love the twists and turns, the little restaurants and cafes, the big vistas, and the little surprises around the bend. Whether you’re renting a bike for a few days or planning a custom tour with us, we want you to do more than just visit. We want you to have an adventure.
As a family owned and operated business, we believe it’s the small things that make a great experience. We designed what we do from the ground up to make it as easy as possible to just show up, hop on a bike, and go. We offer:
Free shuttles to and from Sacramento International Airport
Free parking and luggage storage for the duration of your rental or tour
Available GPS rental
Available helmet rental
Complimentary roadside assistance
I've had a passion for motorcycle riding my whole life. I started riding and racing motorcycles when I was 13 years old. I ride every chance I get. I have taken tours here in the US and Europe. I’m up for any adventure. For me there is no better way to experience a place than from a motorcycle.
I like riding with Bob. It’s amazing what you can see from the back of a motorcycle. Bob convinced me to take a tour in Italy. I wasn’t sure about riding 11 days for 6 or 7 hours per day. I had a choice to ride in the van that carried our luggage and thought for sure that’s what I would be doing. Never once did I get in that van. I rode and the whole time it turned out to be a life changing experience. If you ask me, every couple should take a motorcycle tour.
There is a reason they call the BMW R1200GS an icon of travel. These were built for the open road, providing comfort while you embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
Our community of enthusiasts love our bikes and the unique experience that they get when they choose us.

We had an excellent adventure! Bob and Joanie were so helpful and thorough. We highly recommend High Road Motorcycles!
I found High Road Motorcycles and the great owner Bob online by chance. I was looking desperately for multiple BMW GSs available on the same week with no hope on sight. No other provider has multiple BMW 1200 GS available with a short notice in Bay area.
I have friends overseas that comes to US every year for a week long motorcycle trip and our group grew to be 6 people this year. Bob was able to provide five 1200 GS (one brand new 2020 model ) and took great care of us. He had helmets, jackets, gloves, any equipment you need just in case you forgot to pack something last minute. The bikes were in perfect shape, new tires, heated grips including factory GPS, free of charge.
Bob is super helpful with pickup/drop off from airport if you need a lift. We are already planning next year's trip and make sure we'll use High Road again.Thank you Bob for your great hospitality.
I recently purchased a 2019 R 1250 GSA and have been really enjoying it. I wanted to share the experience with my son Ryan. We both have been riding dirt bikes and our FE501 dual sports for the past several years. I reached out to Bob and Joanie from High Road Motorcycle Rentals to set up a rental for my son. We could not be more pleased with our experience with High Road Motorcycle Rentals! My son was able to ride a 2018 GS in excellent condition and experience all that I have been enjoying. We had the best day ever! We met up with a friend of mine that lives in San Andreas California and he took us on all the roads that few people even know about. We ended up riding 312 miles for the day. My son and I still have smiles on our faces! Bob and Joanie were extremely helpful and made sure that my son had everything he needed and was familiar with the bike.If you are from out of the area they will even pick you up from the Airport and get you set up with your rentals and everything you need.I strongly recommend Bob and Joanie from High Road Motorcycle Rentals!
My two friends and I rented bikes from Bob for a 3 day ride through the Sierras and can't say enough positive things about the outfit. I found the High Road website in a frantic last minute search for motorcycles and was impressed by the quality of it's design and layout. Over the following weeks Bob connected with me professionally and set everything up with ease. The BMW 1200 GS bikes are incredible for touring and like new. I could tell that Bob took pride in maintaining the machines with care and did a good job explaining all of their features. Bob rode with us for the first afternoon and was well versed in the surrounding network of roads. We had an amazing trip thanks to Bob and Joanie! I genuinely recommend using High Road Motorcycle Rentals for your trip.
I wanted to test ride the new BMW 1200GS on something longer than a short demo ride, so when I heard about HIGH ROAD MOTORCYCLE RENTALS I decided to rent a GS for the Range of Light Gypsy Tour over Labor Day weekend. I arrived at Bob Highfill's place on Friday morning and the shiny new GS was all prepped and sitting there waiting for me. He meticulously went over all the features and controls and answered any questions I had and then sent me on my way. The GS handled flawlessly and I had a very enjoyable weekend. I returned the bike on Monday with about 1,000 extra miles and sore cheeks (face, not butt) from smiling all weekend. I would HIGHLY recommend HIGH ROAD MOTORCYCLE RENTALS & TOURS for your next two-wheeled adventure in Northern California.
We had a fantastic experience with Bob leading us around this part of the country that he knows and loves the best!
I have been riding for over 50 years. This was the first BMW I have ridden. The bike was very clean and mechanically outstanding. Bob went over the bike and explained everything to me. I was impressed with his knowledge and his excitement. Not only did he have the bike ready to go, but he also had extra gear for his renters in case they needed something. I highly recommend renting from him and will do it again.
I have been thinking of buying and wanted to test ride a GS for a long time. I was referred to High Road Motorcycle Rentals by A&S in Roseville (Kudos!). Bob and Joanie are just awesome and provide fantastic customer service. I received prompt response and they quickly answered my questions. The bike was immaculate, like new. Bob spent time with me introducing me to many of the bike's computer features which I used constantly. They graciously allowed me to leave my truck with them during my ride. My buddy Frank and I rode out to the coast via 128. Then south on 1 to Gualala. We spent the night and headed back south via Jenner and River Road. It was an excellent experience, especially in the fall when you can enjoy the colors and the smells from the many wineries.I highly recommend High Road Motorcycles! The equipment is top notch, the price is fair and the owners completely understand customer service. Thank you High Road!
This was a wonderful trip. I really recommend High Road Motorcycle Rentals. Bob, the owner, took us on a guided trip of a lifetime. We toured Tahoe, the Squaw Valley, and stopped at a great little watering hole called Uncle Toms Cabin which is located up in the mountains around Pollock Pines, CA. If you look around at Uncle Toms Cabin, you will find our $1 dollar with the Alaska on it.
I didn't know what to expect when I was told that the club had arranged a rental with Bob Highfill's HIGH ROAD MOTORCYCLE RENTALS AND TOURS. I packed my normal motorcycling gear plus clothing for a three-day rally and showed up at Bob's place. He had the bikes gassed up and ready to load. The luggage was spacious and handy, the motorcycle was running flawlessly, and off we went. As I did not know the local byways, I let Bob take point and lead me to the good roads South to Mariposa. We had a great, spirited ride, despite some weather-caused road closures, but Bob's GPS was set up with input from CalTrans, so he knew where we could pass where we had to detour. The whole trip was fun, the bike was supremely comfortable and compared very favorably to my four BMWs at home. I'm telling my friends "Book a trip on High Roads Motorcycle Rentals and Tours, before Bob Highfill gets smart and raises his prices! "He gives an exceptional value for the Smile ratio!Thank you for a great ride, Bob! Thank you to Joanie for entertaining my wife and daughter as we were a little delayed in our return arrival. A++ rating from me! I'll do it again!
