Test Drive Your Bike

Do you let people do it when they're looking to buy it? I don't.

By the way, if anyone is in the market for a 2008 red ninja 250r with 2500 mi, let me know.

Once the cash is in my hands, they are free to test ride, they drop it consider it bought.

I wouldn't buy a bike I couldn't ride first. I've turned bikes down that I was set on buying after test rides as well.

LOL.

Seriously though, I have only bought one used bike before. From Cobra281 in this forum, I rode it for a while. It is the only way to know if the bike speaks to you.
I guess it depends on each situation. That day, I arrive with my wife in my car and trailer. Guess I inspired trust to him.

Kidding The sell is primarily based on financial reasons and secondarily for the sake of my mother's peace of mind.

Or should it be the other way around? I confuse myself sometimes...
