Hi, i'm thinking about selling my first bike (virtually mint, less than 14k, GXSR 600 SRAD) - i've just bought a GSXR 1000 from Ebay. The seller let me have a test ride (after keeping the cash, naturally) and i am insured to ride other bikes.
Just made me think....if i'm offering a test ride, which i think is only fair, what sort of things do i need to cover my arse? The sale is going towards the cost of my new bike!
Do i need to check they have insurance first? I can go with them on my 1000 but is that normally done? What happens if they crash? Are they liable? If i'm not with them, how can it be proven?
I think the basic premise of the post is - what is the best and safest way to offer a test ride when selling a bike!
