Outside The Cage Episode 19-03

On today’s episode, I welcome Austin Rothbard, Founder and CEO of TwistedRoad.com, a website that acts as the “Air BnB” of motorcycle rentals. Have you ever been on vacation or a business trip with a little time to spare on a beautiful day and wanted to have a quick ride? Maybe you want to rent a bike to go cross country. Or you have a bike that you don’t ride very often and would like to rent it out to make a few extra dollars. Well, Twisted Road is for you. Austin’s solution to providing a nationwide database of bikes across the United States solves the problem of finding a bike to ride when you are traveling. During the show we’ll talk about, in detail, the rental and listing process, fees, how to price your bike and how the vetting process works to ensure the right people get to the right motorcycle. We also get into some great stories from past experiences and delve into a few of the reviews that sets Twisted Road apart from other motorcycle rental companies. 

I am also very honored to announce that Austin has graciously set up two amazing offers exclusive to “Outside The Cage” listeners. The first is a promo code that gives each person setting up an account with Twisted Road, a $25.00 immediate credit when you list your bike OR a $25.00 credit after you rent your first bike. This amount, once credited to your account, can be used for any future rentals with Twisted Road. Simply listen to todays episode to get the promo code. The promo code will expire at 11:59PM, eastern daylight time on May 5, 2019.

The second amazing offer Austin has set up exclusive for Outside The Cage, is a FREE 24 hour rental on ANY bike in the United States. Yes folks… ANY bike including the higher end custom bikes listed on the website. This offer will be awarded to one lucky winner that will be randomly drawn.

    Great podcast! I’ve been looking for a new motorcycle podcast to get me through the workday. You do a great job about not only giving your opinion but you bring in other professionals in the motorcycle industry to talk about their insights as well. I love that you dive into the niches as well, like the motorcycle rodeo in episode 1, or Austin about Twisted Road.

    I thought Austin’s was especially interesting because much of the motorcycle industry is stuck in the Japanese or Italian “traditional way” and is slow to keep up with the times. Austin’s “air b&b” of motorcycle rentals is a great service. Not only does it give riders an affordable and available option of throwing their leg over a new experience. But think it we’ll help to grow motorcycling as a whole, especially for younger generations.

    Many people get into motorcycling, buy the wrong bike for themselves, due to ignorance, and then judge motorcycling as a whole based off that one experience. If they got on a different bike that might better suit their needs, I bet they would jump back in the saddle.

    All around good stuff! Keep it up and I can’t wait for episodes to come!

    P.S. Great production. Your podcast sounds very professional compared to others that I listen to. And I subscribed to your YouTube channel!
