Hey Guys, I'm new to the forum. I'm looking at buying a used bike in addition to my current bike. I've never bought used before and was wondering with insurance being what it is, is a test ride something that just can't happen before you buy?

The person i would be buying the bike from is apprehensive because the bike is insured in his name and insists that ICBC won't allow a day permit for another rider. Is this guy correct or should I simply avoid him and look elsewhere?

Thanks in advance.
