Personally, I do not offer test rides.
What I tell an interested party who has seen the bike as really is interested....
Once we agree upon a price and you show up with CASH ( or equivalent ) I will let you take it for a ride. If there is something you are unhappy with *and* you bring it back in the shape it left in, I hand you your cash back and the deal is off. OTOH, if you break it or wreck it, deals done.
This insures that the bike will only be test ridden by buyers not shoppers.
It also is a good signal to prospective buyers that you won't let just any
ass-hat take your bike out and beat the snot out of it for a joy-ride.
Be prepared for stupid insulting low-ball offers.
I also put a payment disclaimer on all ads....
Payment in full in cash is due upon delivery.
Stupid, Insulting Low-Ball offers will be ignored.
A Note to Scammers...
I will not take your cashiers check for 2x the amount... so don't waste your time.
Interesting. So I take it a Cashier's check could've been stolen and basically whatever can be put on it. So I take it only cash is to be accepted? That's pretty steep considering. I mean I'm not looking at $2,000.
Here are the specs (I'm not home while typing this so I might miss an item or two):
2004 Yamaha FZ1 with a high 9,000 miles on it.
Hindle Carbon Fiber slip on; Hyper Pro Steering Dampner; new rear tire (Pirelli Rosso (never used/just purchased); Yamaha brand shield, titanium handlebar, lower front fairing, rear/chain guard fairing; Scorpio Alarm; fender eliminator kit installed, aftermarket signals all the way around.
Here's what's wrong with it:
Small dent in the tank (left side) from handlebar when it fell. Scratches on right side cover, very small part of tail, part of the exhaust and part of the lower front fair fairing. Nothing else is wrong with the bike. Engine and everything else performs pefectly.
The way I see it the mods outweigh the knicks and small dent on the tank. Especially it being a 2004 prices aren't what they were when I bought it.
Very open to feedback now that you guys have this to work with.
Again, I'm not home but that's the just of it. I'm looking for mid 8G to start with.
