Get Ready to Ride! Introducing the Rent2Buy Hoka Hey Team

December 15, 2009 2 comments

About two weeks back, we rode through the Rent2Buy motorcycle world with news that our bikes are ready to go, and we’re sending a team of Hell’s Angels (or at least Rent2Buy angels) out to the Hoka Hey challenge—the 7,000 bike race from Florida to Alaska.

 Now, we’d like to introduce our team of easy riders. Meet Dave Weissinger and Bob Madurski, two of the baddest bikers around (who also happen to be real nice guys).

You can find Dave burning up the pavement just about anywhere—from Bandara, Texas to Hot Springs, Arkansa, and everywhere in between—wherever his motor will take him. And Bob splits his time between his NJ Thrifty Car Rental locations and hammering down and hitting the road as much as he can.  

You’ll be hearing more about these two—and maybe even from them—as we get closer to the race come June. (We’ll also be tracking them online throughout the race.) But for now we’d like to give these guys a Hoka Hey/ Rent2Buy salute and welcome—and to let you know that, here at Rent2Buy, we’re more than just waxers. We’re serious about using our sleds.

We’ve got a picture of Dave on his Harley just below—you can see what we mean. Ride hard, friends—and rent to buy.

7,000 Miles of Wind, Pavement, Rent-to-Buy—and ½ a Million Bucks

November 26, 2009 1 comment

Here at Rent-to-Buy, we’re big fans of motorcycles. We think everyone should lease one, should buy one, or even own one—whether it’s a Harley, a Kawasaki, or a Honda. Just get on your bike and go!

That’s why, coming soon, Rent-to-Buy will launch a brand-new rent to own category: Motorcycles! Rent or lease your motorcycle through Rent-to-Buy, and you’ll be able to own your own bike before you know it.

And to celebrate the new section of our website, we’ve proudly become a sponsor of the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge—the grueling, amazing, incredible motorcycle race extending 7,000 miles—from Key West, FL to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska—starting on June 20th, 2010. The race raises funds for US veterans and soldiers’ families in need, and the winner comes back with $500,000.

Yes, $500,000. That’s a lot of hogs.

We’re so excited about motorcycles and the challenge, we’re sending one Rent2Buy employee to ride in the race. And through our partnership with Eagle Rider (the largest motorcycle tourism company on earth), you can rent your own bike to ride in the race—of course, with option to buy. That means that if you get attached to your bike over all that pavement, you don’t have to give it back to us. You can just buy it, and ride it home.

(Just a technical note: the challenge is only for Harleys—specifically, Harley-Davidson™, V-Twin, air-cooled motorcycles; no V-Rods or Victory’s allowed.)

So rev your bike engines, freedom riders—and get ready to rent-to-buy!
