Man, that reminds me of the risk if you are the buyer, and take a test ride. I almost dropped my gixxer in front of the buyer turning out of the culdesac. Had never ridden a SS, and the thing wanted to just fall over.

Turns out it had 15 psi in the front tire!

A buddy I met taking MSF dropped the bike he was looking at buying on the test ride. I don't know if the guy asked for cash up front before the ride, but he did the right thing and bought the bike when he got back. I don't figure most people would be that honest.

Yeah, that would be Aaron E. He met the guy at the Galleria where the guy "worked". Guy even had a Nieman Marcus name tag. When he didn't come back, he went in and asked about the "employee"...who???
Serious lesson learned.
