Owner description: 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 ya, and the fresh air. Some days the air may be a little wetter then some but, all in all its awesome here.

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

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
