How not to test ride a bike

Quote:
you cross a 19 year old kid that shows up at Power Yamaha in Sublimity 45 minutes before they close, wanting to test ride a 650 Ninja?

Unfortunately, I didn't see the acrobatic act, but I sure HEARD it from the service department. From what I gathered, he pop'd the clutch, which resulted in this:
i VCPvsjZ XL
i ggtTrzf XL
i 8KV39s2 XL
i mJf72L2 XL
i jbTd3mt XL

I laughed before I even clicked on it.

I wonder how expensive that was?

On second thought, I couldn't find one damaged part in the pics. It'll buff out!

I have a confession. He was sitting on my tank cover when I low-sided on 362. I thought we had that

Last time I stopped by the Yamaha at Fry/I10 they were taking pictures of 2 consignment bikes... some kid had sat on one, fell into another, which then fell against their concrete pole.

His parents told him to leave. Mom came up later to help resolve and was about how a scratched up exhaust could just be polished out (it was painted) as well as most of the fairing marks, and the plastics were pretty marked up too. We just kept looking over the FZ6r next to them and listened in.

I wonder how that deal ended up too.
And that's why many shops don't want you just sitting on bikes in the showroom.
