    The first 6-part TV series will be broadcast weekly thereafter following daredevil Zef Eisenberg as he scours the nation to meet fellow ‘Speed Freaks’. Whether they’ve fitted a 24,000cc W12 aero-engine into a car, or built from scratch a full Dakar off-road racer, Eisenberg gets into the mindset, behind the wheel, under the bonnet and in to the saddle of Britain’s fastest cars and motorbikes.

    Each 60-minute episode features extreme wacky vehicles, major modifications and maxed up tuning, adrenaline-filled racing action, fantastic feats of engineering combined with the lots of laughter, stress and drama – A must see for any petrolhead!

    Check out the preview here: https://youtu.be/UkK9q2yNeeM
     
    The Speed Freaks show was commissioned for ITV4 by Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and is produced by Keshet Productions. Speaking on behalf of Keshet Productions David Williams said “This high-octane series features a high octane excitement, to indulge anyone with an interest in cars, motorsports and engineering. Zef’s need for speed and desire to break the Pendine land-speed record is infectious and makes for compelling viewing”.

    Each week watch Eisenberg as he challenges his own MADMAX Race Team to take a different vehicle and turn it in to the fastest machine of its kind before he braves life and limb to test it to its full potential.

    The knowledge gleaned during the shows play a crucial part in helping Zef and the MADMAX Race Team to build a crazy 1200hp specially road-legal Porsche 911 Turbo to set the all outright speed record at Pendine Sands.

    About Zef Eisenberg:
    Eisenberg best known for his motorbike exploits is a self-proclaimed ‘Speed Freak’ and no stranger to speed, he currently holds over 47 British and world land speed records including a prestigious Guinness World Record. His records include the world's fastest turbine bike (234mph), the UK's fastest (no-fairing) 'naked' bike (225.6mph), world’s fastest motorbike racer on sand ever at 201.5mph to Britain’s fastest-ever motorcycle crash at over 230mph. 
     
    In September 2016 Eisenberg nearly paid the ultimate price when disaster struck at 234mph during a motorcycle record attempt, riding a 560bhp Rolls-Royce jet turbine-powered motorcycle. He broke 11 bones, was hospitalised for three months, spent a further three months in a wheelchair and had to learn to walk again. He defied doctors by racing on the anniversary of the crash on the same track, and just 5 months later became the first man in history to break the 200mph barrier on sand on a motorbike when he recorded a top speed of 201.572mph at Pendine in May 2018.

  3. The Best Motorcycle Rental Option for Travelers When Visiting America

    Posted on

    Let’s start it all with some statistics!

    Cars are usually driven for around 12,000 miles per year, whereas motorcycles ridden less than 2,000 miles. Moreover, there are only approximately 10 million motorcycles licensed in the U.S.A – with around 30 million licensed riders.

    In short, many people have the license to ride a motorcycle, yet few of them actually ride one daily, for example – not to mention the motorcycle rentals prices that are just not that appealing.

    Given the aforementioned statistics, let’s now talk about the best motorcycle rental option for those that are traveling to America. It goes without saying that you clearly have more than enough reasons to ride a motorcycle on one of the American roads – it’s no exaggeration when someone says that you’ll feel just like a movie star!

    Riders – Share!

    Let’s say that you plan on visiting Sin City and that you want to drive a motorcycle into the sunset – or at least in the evening, catching a glimpse of everything that’s surrounding you.

    However, you have no clue on which the best Last Vegas motorcycle rental option may be!

    What if we told you that, with our help, rental is now turning more into a sharing process? Exactly – why would you, as a traveler, scout the rental options within the city when you could find someone willing to share their bike with you? What Do I Need to Rent a Motorcycle in Las Vegas

    Our platform – Riders Share – gives you the opportunity to search for your favorite or preferred ride from actual motorcycle owners. By doing so, you won’t have to deal with any sort of rental agency or such.

    In short, you can enjoy a peer-to-peer motorcycle rental marketplace with us!

    The Benefits

    Naturally, there are benefits for both that list their bike for renting, as well as for those that rent it.

    First of all, if you want to rent out your motorcycle, we’ll provide you with our unique insurance policy, specially designed for this type of vehicles. As you may know, most personal or vehicle policies do not cover motorcycle rentals, meaning that you put your ride at risk whenever you rent it.

    However, that’s not something you should be worrying about if you’ve listed your bike on Riders Share!

    When it comes to travelers that rent a motorcycle, their safety is paramount! For this, we verify the criminal and driving track records and make sure that anything suspicious or bad stays out of our system. In short, both owner and renter are completely safe when using our platform.

    The Bottom Line

    Given the fact that motorcycle rental agencies/ companies are either too expensive or, in some cases, quite hard to find, it goes without saying why you should rely on Riders Share to find yourself a ride if you plan on visiting America!

    With just a 0.1% theft rate so far, a unique insurance policy, as well as a professional service, we are 100% certain that you’ll find the ride you need, successfully rent and ride it, while also having the best owner-customer experience when interacting with our bike sharers.
