The best part of my job is meeting our fellow motorcycle enthusiasts from every culture around the planet!

Los Angeles motorcycle rental and tours just got a whole lot better. Glenn Bartels, General Manager and Operator of the rental company Route 66 Riders, knows Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He comes from the legendary Bartels' Harley-Davidson family of Los Angeles, California.
Glenn Bartels was one of the early pioneers of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle rental industry. In 1994, Glenn started renting his four personal Harleys to international tourists, and the business grew annually until the rental fleet consisted of 160 new Harley-Davidson motorcycles by 2003.
Hosting international, travel-operators from all parts of the globe, but mostly from France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, and Australia, was the exciting way Bartels enjoyed spending his summers.
"The best part of my job is meeting our fellow motorcycle enthusiasts from every culture around the planet," says Glenn Bartels.
Shortly after the recession hit, from 2009 to 2012, most OEMs cut back their dealers' funding options for rental programs, and Bartels was forced to scale back their rental fleet size to accommodate strictly retail rentals.
Route 66 Riders is now increasing its rental fleet in order to host the massive wholesale tour groups again. The new rental fleet now features both Harley and Indian motorcycles.
The luxurious, riding Indian Chief, and Road Master models, as well as popular, Harley-Davidson touring, models will feature stage one performance pipes. Special rates for groups of 10, 20, 30 or more riders will be available for summer 2017.
