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

Great people, treat you very fairly, might even be underpriced for the value. Quick walk from the cruise ship, set you up with everything you need. We'll be back, and with more riders next time.

Meri, Rick and Joe were outstanding ambassadors for Alaska. They welcomed us with such enthusiasm for their local landscape and lifestyle. We rented a Harley Davidson for the full day when we were in port in Ketchikan. As I have never been a passenger (or rider) of a motorcycle, I was quite nervous. Rick quickly put me at ease and...

We decided to rent a Harley many months before our trip, I got a hold of the owner-Mary by email and spoke with her many times on the phone, She is amazing, We were really worried about the weather the day before we arrived in Ketchikan. There was forecasted a 60-70% chance of rain. We arrived in Ketchikan to a... More

One of the best excursions ever! We had booked a Harley Davidson soft tail for the day and found a steady rain upon our arrival in Ketchikan. Decided to venture out in spite of the weather and really glad we did. Ketchikan is a beautiful area regardless of the weather. The rain increased and shortened the ride up a bit,... More

We had a fun day in Ketchikan on our scooters. Merri and Joe were extremely helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend anyone stop by. The day looked like it was going to rain, but it didn't. We loved the freedom to travel around where we wanted. The machines were plenty powerful enough and very fun! Thanks!

When we got off our ship we didn't know if we'd go riding or not because it was raining and were hoping it would stop. Rick & Merri were so friendly and made us feel so welcome!! They had great rain gear for us to use so we took the chance and went out and we're so glad we did,... More

We had reserved an all day rental of a soft tail Harley, but when we disembarked from our cruise ship it was pouring rain. We had some doubts about whether to continue with our plans, but the owners were so nice and willing to work with us. They offered to refund our deposit or just go for however long we... More
