You don’t have to say that you’re all ready to purchase. On the other hand, we reserve the right to say no, as we’re not here to simply allow joy rides.
Test rides can happen any day the roads are dry. You need to show us your valid driver’s license with motorcycle endorsement. We cannot accept a learner’s permit; you may be legal with one but it’s not acceptable to our insurance company. You will also need to complete and sign our test ride form, making you responsible for your actions. It is also possible to carry a passenger on a test ride, although we prefer you ride the bike solo at first to get a feel for it. We do not recommend test rides after 3:30 pm on weekdays, because in our neighborhood, about all you’ll get to experience is how well the bike idles in stop-and-go traffic!
Yes, bikes occasionally get dropped on test rides. No, you’re not then required to buy the bike, but if you don’t, you and/or your insurance company are responsible for returning the bike to its condition before your ‘incident.’
Your range on a test ride is severely limited unless you provide us proof that you have current motorcycle insurance.
