Test riding used bikes
Is it common for private sellers to not let potential buyers test ride the bike that's for sale?
I ask b/c I looked at a ninja a couple weeks ago and the kid wouldn't let me test ride it. Said he was scared that I would drop it. Instead he offered to ride it for me at which I replied "well if that's the best you can do..." So he takes it down the street and takes the bike up to a whopping 30mph and let the engine scream to a ridiculous rpm of maybe 5k. I got to see a 2003 zx-6rr in action let me tell you.
