EagleRider Rentals Come to Atlanta

LOS ANGELES, CA--(CCNMatthews - June 06, 2006) - The opening of the latest EagleRider location in Atlanta, Georgia proves that the dreams of EagleRider enthusiasts never die. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, Dennis Laborde and Al Gomez, founders of EagleRider New Orleans, decided to take the opportunity, not only to rebuild, but also create a new EagleRider location in Atlanta. The vision and enthusiasm of the two has been a proven formula for success.

Eran Ellerbeck, manager of EagleRider Atlanta said, "I'm very excited to be managing EagleRider Atlanta. I look forward to offering Harley-Davidson motorcycle rentals in the fastest growing hub of the South. We offer an exciting option to tour the many historical attractions and scenic areas of the greater Southeast by motorcycle. As the gateway to the South, Atlanta offers a central point to tour from the Great Smoky Mountains of the Carolinas, to the costal regions of Georgia and Florida."

Dennis Laborde and Al Gomez, founders of EagleRider Atlanta and EagleRider New Orleans share an obvious passion for motorcycle touring. As travelers themselves, they know the value and convenience of being able to rent a motorcycle as opposed to transporting a bike to your destination. They bring with them to Atlanta combined experiences from life in the Big Easy of New Orleans. The operational and marketing experience of both individuals will provide the catalyst to grow the company into one of the most successful EagleRider locations.
