Rider Friendly Business Spotlight: EagleRider Calgary! Featured

eagle rider calgary frontHello fellow riders!

EagleRider of Calgary opened on the May long weekend of 2017.  We had a wonderful first year.  It’s been so interesting meeting folks from all over the world and hearing their stories.  We’ve also met some fantastic local riders, confirming what we already knew:  you meet the some of the nicest people on a motorcycle.  

We’ve met riders from all walks of life – flight crews on layovers, military stationed out in Medicine Hat, business partners on a “team building exercise”, and equestrians competing at Spruce Meadows. They come from far and wide.  We’ve put up a map with push-pins marking locations as far as Australia, China, Dubai, and Hawaii, to name a few.

It’s heartwarming to see families riding together.  Many fathers and sons.  In some cases, fathers, sons, uncles and cousins.  We had a whole family from Edmonton go out for a week – Mom and Dad on one bike and brother and sister on the other.  One particular rider sticks out in my mind.  He was from Alberta originally but lives in BC now.  He drove here in his car and picked up a bike to ride with his brothers.  They were doing the same route they did with their Dad only Dad passed away a month prior.  That one choked me up when he talked about looking in the mirror and expecting to see Dad there.

Many of our riders are celebrating.  One couple drove from Seattle, WA and rented a bike for a couple of days in celebration of their 30th wedding anniversary.  Another couple celebrated their honeymoon taking advantage of a one-way special from Vancouver to Calgary.  One fellow from Ontario was celebrating being alive.  He and his friend headed out on the bikes 6 months to the day from when he had a major heart attack.  They had to shock him 9 times!  Wake up calls like that make you take stock and re-evaluate your priorities in life.

We’ll never forget the fellow that was visiting from Columbia.  His daughter lives in Calgary and had a new baby.  Of course his wife and daughter were very involved with the newborn.  In his words, “they are ignoring me, so I decided to go for a ride.”  He took off for a few days and enjoyed viewing the solar eclipse south of the border.

Our fleet is all late model Harley Davidsons.  We started with twelve motorcycles ranging from a Sportster to the Electra-Glide.  The demand for the Sportster overwhelmed us and we ended up adding another one to the fleet mid-season.  The ElectraGlides are also very popular and we’ve ordered two more for the 2018 season.

2018 promises to be a great season judging by the reservations that are already coming in.  We’re already sold out of the ElectraGlide model for a few weeks in July.

Our focus for season one was on rentals although we did put together one guided day tour for a group out of Houston here in Calgary to attend a conference.  We’re excited about the tours we’ve put together for 2018.  We offer self-drive tours where you leave the planning to us.  We book the hotel rooms and provide a scenic route with suggestions for points of interest.  As well we will be offering guided tours in 2018 where you can sit back and follow the leader.

We’ll be open again in April.  Drop by to see us if you are in Calgary or check out our website:  www.eaglerider.com/calgary
