Flesh it out, guys. Make the "Destination Experiences" real.

Yamaha Motorsports has launched, and is now expanding, its rental program. Locations nationwide offer Yamaha motorcycle (or ATV, side-by-side, or snowmobile) rentals for people looking for an adventure. Dubbed “Destination Yamaha” there are more than twenty partnered dealerships throughout the country renting Yamaha machines.

In its press release, Yamaha claims that this is “the most comprehensive and diverse line of adventure vehicles available to rent from a leading powersports manufacturer,” which I can’t really argue. If you try to come up with a single manufacturer that produces and rents vehicles across this span, you’ll probably be hard-pressed to come up with anything.

So far, there are only four locations with motorcycles to rent. One of them is a motorsports park in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. The other three are in North Carolina and Tennessee, respectively, and they rent street motorcycles (the FZ-09 is a popular rental).

Steve Nessl, the motorsports marketing manager for Yamaha, says “Now more than ever people are seeking out new and exciting experiences, and Yamaha is stepping up with added options and ready-built adventures to offer them. Getting outdoors–especially interacting with friends and family–is key to making lifelong memories, and that’s exactly what Destination Yamaha is designed to do.”

Unfortunately the "Destination Yamaha" website seems devoid of any "ready-built adventures" so far.

If you don't need a prepackaged adventure, and you’re a motorcyclist who has interest in ATVs or snowmobiles, this might be a great way to try the products out without having to commit to purchasing the machine. Also, renting a motorcycle is a good way to save time on your vacation. If you want to see the Smoky Mountains on your terms and you're willing to plan it yourself but don’t have time to ride there, there are Yamaha rental options (most have other brands to rent, too).

The Destination Yamaha website seems very much “under construction” at the moment. Nessl claims "ready-built adventures," and with their website Yamaha seems to be aiming to put together “destination experiences.” For folks who have never put together a riding vacation, they might be just the ticket. Hopefully, the website will get a bit more fleshed out and include a little more than just motorsports rental locations for their would-be adventurers.
