Talking man, whats it take to test ride an RC51 round here..

i didnt think it was that hard to find somebody to test ride one on, but i guess since i have no bike, cuz mines sittin at a shop on consignment, not selling, i cant get out on weekends to hang wit the fellow sportbikers and possibly test one out, to see if thats THE bike i want... yaknow..

anybody know of shops i can get a ride on one? preferably an 02 but any other would suffice...

I would be curious about test riding a Ducati too. I think if you pull up on a bike, they may be more apt to go out with you for a quick spin (I could be wrong)

Not in Arizona. The only dealers who let you test ride bikes (both new and used) are Buell dealers.

Wow bad..

Here in WA the dealers will let you test drive any of the used bikes. Including like the used 2001's and whatnot. Heck I was test driving bikes with a paper license the day I got my permit.

Here in Florida some shops (not all) will let you test ride the used bikes. Others sometimes have demo models available. The local Buell dealer told me they would set up a ride on the new Firebolt, but I haven't taken them up on it.
