New owners of Sportbikes4hire promise exciting changes for Smoky Mountain and Northern California thrill seekers

PJ and Corey Beth bought the Smoky Mountain motorcycle rental and delivery service at the end of the 2015 season and are excited about introducing new and returning riders to two of the country’s most exciting regions for bikers. While the ownership of Sportbikes4hire in the Smoky Mountains has changed be rest assured that Rick Overmire is still the proud owner of the California branch of Sportbikes4hire.

Sportbikes4hire was founded in 2010 by Greg McCoy and Russ Johnson to provide a mobile motorcycle delivery and rental service in both parts of the country. It remains the only company renting sport bikes to thrill seekers and scenery chasers in those areas whose roads have become destinations for both sport bikers and cruisers.

“It’s hard to let it go but we couldn’t trust our customers to anyone better than PJ and Corey who have a real passion for riding these highways and sharing the experience with others,” said Greg. PJ, who has run a motorcycle parts business for over 10 years and Corey Beth, have a combined experience of 38 years riding these roads and are ready to help others from across the United States and Canada experience beauty and thrill of riding these regions.

“These destinations are about an experience. A ride on the Dragon in the Smokys or a run down Mosquito Ridge in California can be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. What we love the most is seeing how many come back for more. Operating Sportbikes4hire.com will be a way for us to bring the excitement and escape to more people,” said PJ.

Probably the best thing about what we do is meeting lots of awesome people and helping them discover and enjoy the area on our bikes.
Sometimes the customers make friends amongst themselves, even by chance away from the shop.
Here's a picture from Jim from British Columbia, who bumped into Alan from the U.K. at the Dragon this week, and took a second to capture our bikes in thier natural habitat!

We've been involved in doing private trackdays for a few years, and our last one involved some rental bikes for the trackday and was a great success, so we're going to step it up and do a few more per year.
Our trackdays are small and personal, aimed at first time track riders and relaxed riders looking to enjoy the day, get a little instruction and support, and generally have a high fun/low stress day. Not race practice, ride practice with a friendly attitude.

So we've got a question: if you are interested in attending a day like that. Which would you prefer?

1. A monday or friday day, $175 for the day with a total of 15 riders per session, or

2. A weekend day at $200 per day, 25 riders per session.

Regardless of the track, which price and format?

Took a moment to go see some friends and new bikes (who doesn't love drooling over new bikes?)at Alcoa Good Times in Maryville, TN. Took one of our FZ1's to make the journey.

What a fantastic bike. Great all around performance in city, county or twisty roads. It is effortless motorcycling at it's finest. I think we can describe it as a "couch rocket"

Do you have an FZ1 or a positive FZ1 story you'd like to share?

They will help visitors in the Smoky Mountains region while Rick Overmire , who has represented the company’s Northern California rentals since 2010, will continue to provide outstanding service to visitors of Northern California.
