Nice Finger shot
I had a guy who wanted to ride my old Speed triple so I let him. He goes to start it and holds the throttle open and when the engine fires it goes from zero RPM's to bouncing off the rev limiter in about half a second. I had no idea the moron was going to do that. I never let him back on any of my bikes again.
My wife wanted to learn how to ride so I put her on an old CB 650 Honda I had and turned her loose in a parking lot after I showed her how to use the brakes and clutch ect ect. She rides around the lot a few times and pulls up next to me with a big grin on her face and stops. She forgets to put her feet down and falls over.
We had a Boss Hoss for sale at our dealership and a guy wanted to test ride it. I wanted to make sure he knew what he was doing cause that's not a beginner's bike. I checked his driver's license and he told me he had been riding bikes since he was 8 yada yada yada so I told him at first just to take it around the lot a few times and check back with me before he goes back out on the street. He rides to the back of the lot and comes back up front and he is as white as a ghost. He stops and yells at me to hold the bike. I go over and grab it and he is shaking so bad he can hardly stand up much les hold that turd up. Needless to say he didn't buy it.
We sold a Harley to a guy and after he put his money down and signed the papers he promptly got on the bike and rode it into the side of the building. Bent the forks and bars, dented up both tanks. Dislocated his shoulder and blew out a knee. The salesman that sold it to him comes to find out that this was the first time the guy had ever ridden a bike.
After that we used to keep a little 175 Honda 2 Cylinder street bike there and made people ride it just to check them out. Almost everyone that rode it wanted to buy it....
