GSMmotoRent Heads to Texas for the Winter

GSMmotoRent Winter Motorcycle Rental

GSMmotoRent, based in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, plans their annual migration to the Big Bend area of Texas this coming winter, offering a full range of dual-sport motorcycles for rental from January 3 through March 15.

Conveniently located between the Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park, the locals call the area “El Despoblado,” meaning unpopulated country. It also means the perfect place for two-wheel exploration of a unique area alongside the Rio Grande River, featuring high desert countryside with mountains reaching 7,000′. The Terlingua Ghost Town is a must see for the history as well as an opportunity to meet and socialize with the locals.

The “winter” weather is also perfect for comfortable riding, with high temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s during the winter, sunny skies, and low chance for rain.

Riders with any level of experience can have fun, with roads and trails ranging from mild to wild. There are many options to choose from in the National Park as well as the State Park some 60 miles west of Terlingua. Some videos of the roads in the area are available on the GSMmotorent website:

Packages including 4 nights lodging, rental bike for 3 days, and rental car for 5 days starting below $700 per person, based on double occupancy. Air travelers should plan on flying into the Midland, TX airport.

Beginning Jan. 3, 2013 through March 15th bikes will be available on a first come, first served basis. Riders can reserving through the GSMmotorent website or by calling 865-448-6090. The fleet includes Kawasaki KLR 650’s (two of which have been lowered), Kawasaki KLX250S, Yamaha WR250R, and Suzuki DR200 bikes. Single-day rentals are available, as well as discounts for multi-day rentals.

If exploring the Big Bend area on a dual sport bike has been on your wish list then now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity. Give GSMmotorent a call at 865-448-6090 or check them out at to reserve your next adventure.
