People don't realize how expensive bikes are to fix.. even from a stand-still drop by a dumbass who thought it would be fun to sit/play around on your bike. I personally haven't had any bad run ins however one of my friends came out from to work to discover some damage on his bike. It had clearly been dropped due to obvious fairing damage and a bent clutch lever.

I'd be more likely to flip out at if a co worker sat on the bike vs a random person.

Tell him you don't want anyone else to sit on it, so he needs to stay off... otherwise they will try. Explain a drop is bad enough, but you don't even want zipper scratches or shoe scuffs from swinging a foot over.

Had that happened to me 2 weeks ago, didn't see the guy but found my rear turn signal broken off and the plastic pieces on the ground. Needless to say bought the integrated taillight that night.

It's amazing how rude and disrespectful people can be.
A person can easily have $10,000+ invested in a bike and, like Obliv said, they are easy to damage and expensive to fix.

So, is this guy gonna pay a couple hundred dollars to fix it if it falls over? Is HE gonna take it to a dealer or deal with the hassle of tracking down parts?

I would not hesitate to tell him to get the off my bike and let him know that next time an embarrassing call out will not be the end of it. Remind him of how inconsiderate it is to take liberties with or even touch other people's property without permission. No home trainin'.

Just tell him in a normal tone, to make sure he understands that it isn't a joke.

I work in a shop with a few other bikers and we park inside, Don't think any of them has tried to without asking and when they do it doesn't bother me and I give them the go ahead. They've all offered their bikes for me to test ride but I've never ridden them.

I'd go apeshit if it were any of the guys I didn't like and forbid it's one of the asshats.

Maybe cover the seat in Armor All/ Son of a Gun when you get to work. His shinny pants will be the talk of the day.

I know you meant that as a joke but just in case somebody in experienced reads this...

NEVER put Armorall on your seat (or tires).

Like the first day of school on the bus. Slippin and slidin all over the place. Everyone gets off all shiny, some poor sap ended up sliding under the seats.

Yes, it was a joke. NEVER EVER EVER your tires, and only your seat if you are going to let it sit a few days and soak in good. Nothing like sliding right off the back of your bike in front of biker skanks. lol

Sit on him and ask him how it feels. If he likes it, you're screwed.

I would definitely ask that person to not touch my bike again in the sweetest voice. Dont wanna him off since he ll see my bike at work from time to time, risking him doing something shady.

Ill probably start by faking and exaggerating how shocked i am that he thinks it's acceptable to climb on someone's bike like its a public bench. Ill add comments along the lines of it tipping over, damages and esp how it's something i value n expect ppl to look but not touch.

that. Punch him in the face. He will get the point then. Just kidding. He needs to understand that it upsets you when someone touches his/stuff.

Here is what you do.

1. Walk up to him
2. Make sure he is looking you in the eye
3. Open your mouth
4. Then say, "Don't sit on my bike anymore."

I know this course of action seems sudden and difficult given the number of steps involved, but it is effective. Tune in next week for tips on how to retrieve a stapler that a coworker has borrowed and failed to return.
