The best...

We will meet you at you cruise ship and go to where the bikes are.

The best way to get away from the crowded downtown area is on a motorcycle. Go beach combing, visit Ward Lake, Watch eagles and smell the fresh air. Some days the air may be a little wetter then some but, all in all its awesome here.

Motorcycle ride in Ketchikan

We had a great time with Heidi at Panhancle Motorcycle! Everyone was very helpful in showing us the area while our ship was docked. I strongly recommend Panhandle!

I was on a cruise ship and walked right in and rented a very clean Harley..staff was very easy to work with...returning the bike was great. They were very helpful with directions on where to ride. I would recommend anyone visiting Ketchikan to rent a Harley from Panhandle Motorcycle. They are walking distance from the ship....rates are very reasonable...thank you... More

My wife and I arrived at Panhandle Motorcycle Adventures at the opening of their business day. We did not have any reservation for renting a motorcycle, but it did not matter. The owners were exceedingly pleasant to work with. Our next trip to Alaska will be in 2014 and part of that trip will be renting a motorcycle from Panhandle... More

We utilized Panhandle Moto on June 31, 2012. The Softail Deluxe was in great condition, Mary in the office was so nice and helpful, the owner was great to talk with and our guide, Scott, was great! Every motorcyclist would love to ride in Alaska, I'm sure, but we actually got to do it and now of course want to... More

Well worth a day cruising to see Ketchikan. One of the highlights of our cruise. Owners were very helpful telling us where to go and what to see. Enjoyed it and would fully recommend it. Panhandle Motorcycles is very easy to find once you are off the boat - just a short walk and they provided everything needed to have... More

We were walking down the street after arriving in Ketchikan on the Princess Diamond, and saw this place. We thought this would be a great way to spend the day, and we were right! We rented a Harley Davidson for $199 for the day. It was a great way to see Ketchikan, without having to be stuck in a tourbus!... More

Arranged and booked an independent day ride via internet from UK. Prompt and helpful responses from Merri. We arrived in Ketchikan on a cruise ship, Panhandle Motorcycles is a 5 min walk from the dock and easy to find. All the equipment you need is provided - jacket, trousers, overshoes, gloves and helmet. The equipment is spotlessly clean and in... More
