Northern California BMW Motorcycle Tour in Lake Tahoe California by High Road Motorcycle

Do I need a motorcycle license?

Yes. You are required to have a valid motorcycle license to rent or drive one of our bikes.

Can you teach me how to ride a motorcycle?

While we love introducing people to motorcycle touring, we are not able to train new riders. You’ll need to already know how to ride the motorcycle and be properly licensed to operate one before renting from us.

Do you rent helmets?

It’s always best to use your own helmet. You spent time making sure it fits you perfectly. However, if for some reason you can’t bring one, we can rent a clean one to you per-day. Helmets are required by law in the State of California.

Do I need to bring my own gear?

We strongly suggest you have the proper gear so you are fully protected for your adventure. We don’t rent protective gear besides helmets. There are some places you can where you can buy gear before heading out, but you’ll be better protected and have more fun bringing your own gear.

What if I have to cancel/change my reservations/rental?

We understand life happens, and sometimes you need to change or cancel your reservation. While we do have a cancellation policy, we’d be grateful if you’d contact us as soon as your plans change so we can work with you

What do I do if something happens to the motorcycle during the rental/tour?

We have 24-hour roadside assistance should something happen while you are out on our bikes. If the unfortunate happens, the bike will be towed to the nearest shop and repaired with no additional cost to you, provided the failure was not because of rider error or negligence.

We had an excellent adventure! Bob and Joanie were so helpful and thorough.  We highly recommend High Road Motorcycles!

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!

Gary McClure

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.

Joan Frank Keepers

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!

Robin Farkas

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!
