History[edit]

EagleRider was founded in 1992 by motorcycle enthusiasts Chris McIntyre, Jeffrey Brown, Peter Wurmer, and Robert Pitts. The company started with four self-purchased Harley-Davidsons, and operated out of Wurmer's garage in San Pedro, California.[2] The company's first rental took place in 1994, with four riders from Austria, and it now provides rentals and tours in over 30 countries.[3]

In 1997, EagleRider began franchising and opened its first international franchise in 2001.[4] Between 2010 and 2013, EagleRider was ranked in Entrepreneur Franchise 500 three times (number 309 in 2010, #202 in 2011, and #446 in 2013).[5] In the early 2000s, EagleRider had introduced its most popular motorcycle tour through U.S. Route 66[which?], and by 2013 had added tours in Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and throughout Europe.[6] In 2012, EagleRider began selling its fleet of used motorcycles, and motorcycle parts and accessories.
