I'm a new rider, and i'm looking to pick up a 03 Honda 600RR. I already am set on having a bike that i'm interested in being checked out by a mechanic first before purchasing it.
But I have a question regarding on what I should do if the bike checks out ok and I want to put a deposit down for the bike so that he doesn't sell it on me to someone else.
At the same time, I want to be save and make sure the guy doesn't run off with my deposit/money.
Any suggestions on how to play it save when buying a bike privately off someone?
