It' gone.Test Ride of Bike for sale
« on: July 05, 2020, 07:50:09 pm »
So yah, want to sell a my Bike. I advertise on Gumtree, and prospective buyer and his mates come to see the bike.

"I like the bike can i take it for a test ride?"

What to do?

If he goes for a ride and crashes and dies will insurance cover me?

He revs the shit out of it and blows the motor?

Or Crashes it into a Bentley and returns as if nothing happened.

 His mates tell me that he broke down and they are going to fetch him and they all ride off into the distance never to be seen.

or they say "can my mate test it I think the clutch is slipping".  They have come for a joy ride on my expense.

How do you handle the sale of a PERFORMANCE bike to someone you don't know?
