What is it with motorcycle ads?
 
Seems like every bike I look at says something stupid like, no BS, serious inquires only, no tire kicking, don't waste my time. Give me a friggen break, you're are not selling a learjet bro.

If you ride one...you'll buy one.

Taking my time picking. Been riding since I was 6 but I am just looking for a little something to put around on like zx14 or something.

I hit a pit bull with my motorcycle once. The thrill was indescribable.

Have you tried selling a bike lately? Know how many idiots think they can just throw a leg over it and take your bike for a test ride without showing any money?

You have to put money down to take a test drive? I didn't know that. How much? Or do you just have to flash the money to prove that you could buy it if you wanted?

I deal with dumbbells all the time who don't know what "FIRM" means.

I've never taken a test ride without putting some money down first. Been a while since I bought a bike from a dealership so I'm not sure what the customary collateral payment would be. The deal I've always worked when selling a bike is I need a cashiers check, cash works also, for the agreed upon price of the bike in my hand before they take it for a ride. From that point the buyer has 24 hours to bring it back undamaged or I cash the check, deposit the money.
Problem is any schmo can say they'll buy your bike then take it for a test ride, crash it then you're liable for the damage to the bike and possibly even their hospital bill.

Ah, interesting.

I didn't know it was a 24-hour deal. I thought a test ride was more or less driving it around the block.

I guess you can't ride along on a motorcycle, too, now that I think about it. It's a little different than a car that way.

Last bike I bought, yeah it was centuries ago, was at a dealership and I just got on and rode. Is it different now at dealers with new bikes?

I'm selling a 4 wheeler. You know how many retards and idiots come in wanting 2k off the asking price, think it's supposed to be brand new, want me to transport it for them?
