If you are travelling on a motorcycle through the USA to California, you will arrive at Los Angeles International Airport. From the airport to downtown it is about 25 kilometers, which can be optimally managed by motorcycle in view of regular traffic jams. It is a good idea to have the complete rental done in advance via our price comparison and booked the preferred offer with all relevant criteria. In that case, all you have to do on arrival is to make an appointment with the rental company. Afterwards you take over the Harley or another motorcycle at its pick-up station and start to the first USA bike trip from Los Angeles. The comparatively long distances do not pose any challenge for you, because you could rent the bike cheaply and gasoline is still seductively cheap in the United States.
With an area of more than 1,200 square kilometers and about four million inhabitants, Los Angeles is the second largest metropolis in the USA after New York. The city is located in the state of California at the Pacific Ocean on a river of the same name. It is part of the "Greater Los Angeles Area", one of the world's largest metropolitan regions with a total population of 18 million. The enormous dimensions demand increased willingness to mobility from locals and tourists alike. The own or rented car as well as the motorcycle is therefore a matter of course for both groups. At the same time, Los Angeles presents itself as a very modern city that has many of the world's leading attractions to offer.
Of course, you can use a price comparison to rent a bike as cheaply as possible. You can save money on the machine, but not on insurance. This should always be a fully comprehensive insurance policy without excess for your own benefit. This protects you from unwanted expenses if your motorcycle is damaged in a fall or collision, for example. Only a first-class insurance provides real planning security for the USA trip.
If you are planning a round trip to the USA, you can also rent for a reasonable price using our price comparison. You then pick up your Harley Davidson at the Los Angeles motorcycle rental pickup station and return it to another bike rental company like New Orleans. In this way, you meet the conditions for low-cost rentals per one-way rent.
No matter how cheap you rent a motorcycle on our price comparison, you must always pay a deposit when renting it. Usually the rental company blocks the amount on your credit card, some providers accept the amount by bank transfer. You will find corresponding information on our price comparison for each offer.
Every motorcycle rental company has a pick-up station just a few meters from the office. So when you go to the pick-up station, take your time and check the bike for optical defects. As soon as you drive with the Harley from the pick-up station, overlooked and unreported damage is considered to have been caused by you. Are you therefore particularly attentive to your travel budget at the pick-up station.

If you are staying in Los Angeles for more than three days, you could take a road trip to Long Beach and visit one of the famous amusement parks (Disneyland and Co.). A trip to Venice Beach would also be worthwhile, because of the canals. The range of attractions in Los Angeles is far too extensive to meet everyone in this article. Ask for interesting destinations at the motorcycle rental or pick-up point at the airport or a bike rental in the city center.
Once in the downtown area, it is only a few minutes by motorbike to Little Tokyo, a district mainly inhabited by Japanese immigrants. The atmosphere is contemplative for a pulsating metropolis, with comparatively narrow streets and a varied scenario in a traditional Japanese way of life. You can eat very well here and buy typical Japanese products. By the way, the neighborhood is an interesting alternative to Chinatown.
You would have to go on a longer road trip to reach the rich people's quarter by motorbike. From downtown, drive west past the Los Angeles Art Museum to the Sunset Strip in Beverly Hills. You can also visit the farm market near Paramount film studios.
From Beverly Hills, you can get to the Pacific within minutes by bike. In Santa Monica there is a beautiful promenade with a pier for an evening walk in Option. Enjoy the fantastic view of the whole region and taste the fresh lobster.
The neighborhood on the Hills of the same name is hard to miss, because the world-famous Hollywood sign is clearly visible from many points in Los Angeles. Of course, the "Walk of Fame" and the Chinese theatre are worth seeing.
