Re: DUAL SPORT RENTAL at BIG BEND

Hey Red,
Rental periods are 24 hours. Price in Terlingua is $115 plus Taxes and ins., comes to about $150 out the door. We use a tire real close to the OEM, about a 50/50 tire which should work good in the sand and loose stuff.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks,
Dan

Re: DUAL SPORT RENTAL at BIG BEND

Just want to say thanks to all of you who rented bikes from us last week for the Around the Bend ride, and to all of you who stopped in to say hi.
It was great meeting all of you. With the response we have had we'll more than likely be down here again next winter.
If any of you plan on coming to the Smokies let us know if we can help, we have lots of routes and maps of the area and a shop if needed.

Dan

Re: DUAL SPORT RENTAL at BIG BEND

Wrapping up our stay down here in Terlingua, last day for rentals will be Sunday, March 27th.
Due to the response we have had we will defiantly be back next year, looking at the last week of January through the first week of March.
Thanks again to all of you who rented bikes from us and let us know if you need any help if you find your way to the Smoky Mountains.

Ride Safe,
Dan

Re: Dual Sport Bike Rental, Smoky Mountains and Big Bend Texas

Not sure if we'll bring the Super Ten to the Big Bend or not this winter, I guess it depends on how much demand.
Scott, you going to make it up this way anytime soon, if not maybe we'll see ya this March at the Round the Bend.

I was talking about this with some folks this weekend in Arkansas. There seems to be some interest in me putting together a group trip. If there is enough interest, I'd gladly put a trip together for street and DS riders.

Dan, I don't know how much riding you get to do yourself while you are down there, but if you get the chance, I highly recommend heading over to Big Bend Ranch State Park. There is some fantastic riding over there!! Here's my report from a recent trip:
