Enterprise Rent-A-Car is bringing some more excitement to the industry.
The St. Louis-based company is starting a pilot program that will allow customers to rent a Harley-Davidson. The program is starting in the Sin City, Las Vegas. Enterprise will become the first major car rental company to rent motorcycles in the US. If the Vegas operation succeeds, the program could expand.
Be warned, it is pricey, with prices running between $120 to $160 a day.
The Ride of the Century has come and gone.
The police have released final arrest figures for the event and it was a busy holiday weekend for officers. 47 people were arrested and 58 motorcycles were towed. A bulk of the arrests happened on Thursday, with 23 people taken into custody for reckless driving. The arrests ranged from infractions for missing registration to driving a stolen motorcycle.
Two bikers also died over the weekend. The event is organized by local motorcycle stunt team, the Streetfighterz.
A motorcyclist who was killed over the weekend during the Ride of the Century has now been identified. 32-year-old Michael Evans was killed when his motorcycle clipped a parked police car on January Avenue near Elizabeth. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says a group of four riders were speeding down the street when three of them veered to the left of the unmarked car. But the motorcycle driven by Evans attempted to pass on the right-hand side when he clipped the side-view mirror of the car. The motorcycle veered out of control and struck a pole in a wooded area near January Avenue. Evans, a Harrisburg, Illinois resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.
