Have few questions regarding test rides.
What do you bring with you when you go for a test ride gear wise? i will be driving a car to them once I start looking in few months, so do I bring just a helmet, or full gear, or just some pieces?
What do you need to do in order for a dealer let you test ride a bike? I am guessing there are forms and such that need to be signed.
How do you deal with no test rides or cash in hand only private sales. I see a lot of adds saying no test rides, or test rides only with cash in had. I am not going to buy a bike without testing it 1st, and I am not going to give someone 3K or whatever while I take the bike out for a quick test. I would also rather not carry that much cash around. Any way around this?
How long would you say is a good length of a test ride? When I drove cars, it was about 15-20 minutes, but owner was there with me.
Finally, how do you negotiate with private seller to take the bike in for an inspection. Are they open to it?
