I've traded around with a few friends.
The standing deal is that the wreckee lets the wrecker borrow his bike till the wreckee fixes the wrecked bike. Of course, we never have talked about whose insurance, or avoiding insurance, etc etc.

90% of the time it's while on a ride together...VERY seldom is a bike borrowed for lone riding, and only when there's a reason (need transportation, REALLY wants HOV, making a parts run, etc).

Yup, friends don't let friends ride other people's bikes.

Or ride 2 up with another dude.

I only ask if I know I can replace the whole thing if something goes wrong. I've been admiring a lot of bikes from a distance.

Quite a few guys have ridden my bikes, but I offered because of the situation and my confidence they could handle it.
, if i am bike shopping i won't even sit on a bike until the salesman suggests it, I won't ask to sit on it.

I will not even touch someones bike with out permission. Example " I like those levers .. can I see how they feel". I mean its a machine .. an expensive machine and just a slight bump can knock one over.

I let my friend sit on mine they day I got it. Now he had sat on the bikes at the dealer and didnt drop so I was like sure have a seat. dropped it when he went to stand up on the bike...he didnt get his right foot down and weight shifted. Luckily it was on the sidewalk and fell to the grass. It did put a small scratch on the heat shield but that was enough to me off.

He didnt get why I was so mad...."BRAND NEW BIKE " that why I am mad. If it had been someone else I would have beat their until the wallet opened to pay for it...but with a friend what do ya do. I can ride his for $75 bucks to replace the heat shield. As mentioned a good friend would have just said how much and handed it over. But just because he is dipshit cheap doesnt make him not a "good friend" just one I will never load anything to anymore because his values and mine on peoples property is way different.

I never ask if I can ride a guys bike. How stoopit is that? I always just jump on and HAUL ! Get the outta there ASAP. IMO it's best to keep as quiet as possible, wear dark clothes, keep a shorty screwdriver (sharpened) and a wire cutter in you back pocket, and do it at night. If yer stoopit enough to ask you must be stoopit enough to know he's gonna give a good description to Officer Popo to identify you KUZ YA LOOKED RIGHT AT HIS FACE ya dumb .
