I don't see why a place to rent motorcycles should be tagged in a way that facilitates confusion with a place that sells motorcycles. Why would you do this? People look either for the first or the second but almost never they don't care, so a distinction at the top level seems right.

Also from a linguistic point of view, "sales" is not chosen extraordinarily well, it sounds like "bargain sale"/"clearance sale" or am I over interpreting this?
