Operations Briefing


  • Sign the rental contract
  • Select the gear which was requested in rental (e.g. jackets, gloves, GPS)
  • Riders will carry out a general check of the motorbikes in order to identify any damage that is not reported in the rental contract, if any



  • Listen to the safety briefing followed by Q&A
  • Review the route plan followed by Q&A



  • Special care has to be taken to prepare curves in order to avoid turning at excessive speed, thus losing control of the motorbike. This control is also important at very low speeds, to avoid motorbike falling on its side
  • If a motorbike should fall on the side at low speed or when stopped, do not try to resist it, as you may hurt your back. Let it lean, and others will help you bring the motorbike up again
  • Maximum indicated speed limits must be complied to, at all times and circumstances
  • Good observation is advised in order to foresee road hazards such as potholes, sand or gravel, animals, pedestrians, crossings, etc.
  • For rider groups, the motorbike formation on the road is in 2 lanes, staggered mode, whenever the width of the road allows it. On narrow roads, a line formation will be used. The road captain leading the column will use diferent hand signs to indicate to the group which formation to adopt
  • Whenever arriving at traffic lights, toll points, roundabouts or any other location where riders may have to stop, the group shall attempt to pass sequentially, without breaks. However, should such breaks occur, then the motorbikes in front will stop at a suitable location until the group is fully together again
  • When stopping and parking, do make sure that the motorbike rest is deployed before you lean the bike on its side
  • Whenever you park, you must lock the handle
  • When parking for the night, the disk lock must be applied in addition to the handle lock



  • Adequate management of fuel will be required, especially for the bikes with lower autonomy. The road captain will organise stops at fuel stations, but riders will monitor their individual fuel gauges and warn the road captain if they run low
  • Fuel tanks will have to be topped up just before returning the motorbikes to Harley-Davidson. The road captain will warn riders to that effect



  • Upon return of the motorbikes at Harley-Davidson, a general check for damage of the motorbikes will be carried out by an HDL representative, and a sign-off will be done with the customer accordingly
  • Rental contract and customer account is closed
