The best way to get away from the crowded downtown area is on a motorcycle. Go beach combing, visit Ward Lake, Watch eagles at a Marina, oh, and the fresh air. Some days the air may be a little wetter then some but, all in all its awesome here.

A most friendly and accommodating staff, with an excellent selection of bikes and gear, and very reasonable rates. Everything about our visit and ride was great, and we would jump at the chance to do it again. I highly recommend Panhandle to anyone that likes to ride.

When I first booked this I thought this would be an overly monitored, have to ride in a pack, guided tour type of thing....surprise! Merri was at the ship right when she said she would. Took us straight to shop to pick up the Heritage. Her husband Rick was there. We were greeted with a smile and very laid back... More

I would like to take a moment to thank Panhandle motorcycle adventures for their excellent service and for being a pleasure to do business with. Our recent vacation to Ketchican Alaska was a pure rush. Even though I forgot what time my appointment was, they went out of their way to make sure we got our rental. Very nice people... More

When looking for something to do in Ketchikan, we wanted something off the beaten path, unique and away from the touristy stores downtown. I came across Panhandle Motorcycle Adventures and knew that was it. I contacted Rick and Merri and they are awesome. They set us up with a bike reservation. A week before we left, I e-mailed Merri to... More

My husband and I decided spur of the moment to rent a motorcycle and drive around Ketchikan, AK. This place was closed when we came across it while walking around town; however, there was a sign on the door with a number to call with any questions. When we called the owners were more than willing to come in and... More

Recently travelled to Ketchican Alaska on an NCL cruise . We arranged to rent a motorcycle there and did so ahead of time as it wasn't offered through NCL. We found the shop and the bike was ready and waiting. The man who takes care of the maintenance and check ups on the machines was Joe Stewart. He was excellent... More

My husband rented a bike to spend the day in Ketchikan. It was amazing. The weather was perfect and the owners gave us ideas for places to visit. I would highly recommend if you are ever in Ketchikan.

My wife and I rented a Goldwing August 17. It was our 40th anniversary. We made arrangements well in advance and thought the folks there were really nice. When we arrived nice turned to awesome! It was raining and we brought rain gear but theirs was much better so we went with that. They even provided booties so our feet... More

Thank you for your review. A "little" rain only makes the experience more exciting. We will not send anyone out if the rain causes the roads to be unsafe. Bu the way, thank you for sharing the picture of Rick and I. More

This is a great family business. I'm a banker, not a biker, and I was traveling alone. I had no idea whether they'd be able to offer something that would suit me. No worries. Merri, Rick, and their staff are friendly and kind. There are many options: rent some equipment and go your own way, travel around accompanied by a... More

The folks at Panhandle communicated well and provided great customer service. The bikes were in great condition and they gave a good briefing about each bike when we checked out. One bike had a bit of a clutch cable issue (it worked just fine) and they explained that it was safe, but we might notice something (we didn't) - and... More
