Bike(s):
'00 Buell Blast









Looking for a new bike, anybody willing to let me test ride there brooms?

Hey Ya'll, I'm wanting to get a new Bike, but of course no dealers let you test ride. So I'd like to get together somebody or people and test ride their bikes. Nothing extreme ( don't have the skill for racing or stunting) just a little ride 'round a parking lot a few times, etc... Just want to feel the weight and the throttle response and braking of some other bikes.

I'm interested in something like a SV650, or a F4i, Katana, etc. I'd love to get a z1000 but well i'm a little strapped for cash now.

well that's all thank ya'll

if he has a 2000 buell blast like his sig says, he probably knows how to ride a bike. just a thought. . .

If you can wait, go to the next International Motorcycle Show and they have test rides there...

Otherwise, go to a bike night and make friends, they may just let you ride around the parking lot or up and down the street. Of course, proof of insurance doesn't hurt :icon_bigg

If you have an M, you can try out the wifes Hyosung 650... I'm sure she wouldn't mind (especially if we don't tell her)

It is only a few manufacturers. They have a set up outside (near the parking lot) and they send someone along with you and actually go down the streets at a pretty good speed and even on the Interstate. I know Kawasaki was one of the companies. They even had an ZX 10 here.

Ah, I found a thread of one who had taken a test ride there, see if you can open it http://bbs.tsba.org/showthread.php?t=36444 see post #3

of those three i would rank the f4i as number one, the sv650 as number two, and i would rank the katana at about a number 78.

give me cash for what my bike is worth....i'll let you take her for a spin. wreck it, you bought it. simple as that. 99% of motorcycle owners will only let you test ride if you let them hold the money.
