Envy Exotics' exists to offers customers in the Pacific Northwest region the ability to experience driving halo vehicles through daily rentals, track experiences, and road courses. Our focus is on offering high-end, performance oriented motor-vehicles that are generally considered impractical, exotic, and unobtainable to the average consumer. These are the motorcycles you've dreamed of putting in your garage, but couldn't find an excuse to justify the purchase to yourself or your significant other. Envy Exotics was created to let customers experience the pure joy of operating these fine motor-vehicles through rental experiences without the burdens of ownership.
Envy Exotics, LLC. is located in Redmond, WA. We currently have a limited number of rental vehicles, but with success we plan to add 1 to 2 vehicles to our fleet each year. We plan on letting our customers help us decide what those vehicles are and want to ensure we appeal to motorcycle lovers.
What makes us different from a traditional rental company is we focus on renting vehicles that other companies do not offer, but customers want. What we mean is we rent bikes that resonate with motor-heads.
We're also unique in that our business is currently run 100% online. This means rental vehicles are delivered and picked-up directly to the customer at an address of their choosing. That might seem strange, but we feel it adds a bit more of a premium service to our business. For more information on how this is done see our FAQ section.
Envy Exotics, LLC. was formed by a group of guys working in downtown Seattle who love cars and motorcycles. We love vehicles that make an impression, but couldn't find it practical to own more than one while living in the city. It was easy to walk, Uber, or bus to work and the other places we needed to go. It was actually easier not to drive as parking is always a pain, not to mention expensive. Plus it rains all the time and us motor-heads want to keep our vehicles in pristine condition, i.e. covered and not dirty. We save them for those beautiful Sunday's that seem to exist so infrequently here in our emerald city we call Seattle. When you add everything up, maintenance, parking, insurance, etc. ownership of a vehicle is a luxury.
On a hike up Mt. Si one day we talk about our failure of finding our dream cars to rent. That's when it happened, the idea, what if we rented them? There had to be others like us living in the Pacific Northwest. We each had different ideas on how to start. One idea was to start with motorcycles. Renting a Lamborghini Gallardo for $1,000 a day might not get too many takers, but a Ducati 1199 Panigale at $300, we'd each do that.
That discussion was the starting point until it gradually took shape and became reality. Now we have a fleet, a small mixed fleet, but it's a start. With success, we'll grow and individuals like us will be able to take for a spin their dream motorcycle in the Pacific Northwest. One day we hope to have all kinds of awesome vehicles that we can share with the world.
We also want to be more than a rental business. We want to be a motorcycle club, one that gives the opportunity to ride amazing bikes to it's members. Of course we need to grow and get there first. Luckily, even a business can have dreams and goals.
About the Owner
David Ruff was born in a small town in rural Pennsylvania. At the age of 18 he joined the United States Marine Corps Infantry. Several years and three deployments later he left the Marines as a Sergeant and started his civilian life at Pennsylvania State University. He later attended the Chinese University of Hong Kong and National ChengChi University in Asia, graduating with a degree in Marketing and minors in Business Law and International Business. In 2012 he moved to the Pacific Northwest to work for Amazon.com and started Envy Exotics, LLC in 2015.
His love for cars started at the age of 16 when he learned how to drive stick in an orange 1970 Chevrolet Corvette equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission. That Corvette taught him the ups and downs of auto ownership; especially since it left him sitting on the side of the road quite often.
His first ride on a motorcycle occurred at the age of 17 on a 1997 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. That ride ended in a crash because he didn’t really understand how to ride. With a busted up motorcycle he rode to the nearest gas station to purchase some duct tape and reassemble the bike. He ran into an older gentleman on a motorcycle there while he was fixing his bike that told him to sell it immediately and never get on another bike again because he’d probably kill himself. Luckily he ignored that advice and kept on ridding.
To this day Mr. Ruff loves performance cars and motorcycles. You’ll find him most often on his Ducati Diavel motorcycle regardless if it’s raining or cold outside. If it’s a nice sunny day you may see him in his very first car, an orange 1970 Chevrolet Corvette. Hopefully you don’t see him sitting on the side of the road with the hood popped up looking at the engine.
