will someone test ride a bike for me?

someone from sportsbike.net referred me here, hopefully one of you can help me. i live in corpus and am looking to buy my first bike. i don't know much so i was hoping a neutral party with some experience would check out the bike for me and give me the low down. i found it on craigslist, here is the link.

thanks in advance

I think Kevin who posts on here lives in Corpus, you can try PMing him. Beyond that, I don't know anyone else oyt there.
If the bike is out here, you can have it brought by my shop and I'll do a visual inspection and test ride, free of charge.

That's gotta make a good impression for someone new to the site/forum.

Pat, bike is in Houston. Guy was/is trying to find a local to check it out if he could. I was tied up, busy... I suggested he might ask here, though now I'm questioning the wisdom of that.

If it's in Houston, see if the seller is willing to bring it up to the shop and we'll get it checked out, no problem!
