Eagle Rider Rentals

Has anyone ever rented from Eagle Rider Rentals in Knoxville/Marysville area?


Passing thru and was thinking of renting and riding the Dragon, Skyway and Smokeys a couple of days.


Which Harley would be most similar my 1800N?


Thx

I'm 6'2" so I should be ok for a couple days.
Weather permitting it should be a nice couple of days.

No, not the Big Boy seat. The seat you want is Harley's Road Zeppelin seat. It's an air seat that the rider can adjust various sections separately on the fly. Hand's down, the most comfortable seat I have ever owned

Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of riding in that exact area. However, I have been there several times by cage. I would say any road in that area will be at worst case GOOD riding. The ride on your map looks great to me.
