Geelong Area - Test Rider

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by shady_knife, Aug 10, 2009.

  1. looking at buying a bike, but it was involved in an accident (apparently a lowslide), may need someone who has their full license to test ride it. just seeing if anyone is prepared to do it, no final details yet (6 pack up for grabs) the bike's in grovedale. you may or may not be needed.

    will be a honda cbr600rr.

    don't want to buy another bike with alot of problems already.

  4. gave him a message, the bike is un rego'd he'd prefer no test ride, but if i must he said, its at my own risk. if you don't want to test ride the bike thats okay, i will, but i'd still like a inspection of the bike from someone who isn't so new to the game?

  7. Take it on a trailer to a mechanic. Could have a cracked frame dude....

    Seriously, it's not worth the effort and money. Take it from me and many other netriders who have this knowledge. Either take it to a mechanic and be prepared to waste $60 on a RWC test which will show it's a POS, or buy it and waste thousands getting it in to RWC condition...

    Will wait for other netriders to agree....

    (also, not trying to be rude buddy. Just trying to get the point across that if you don't want a bike with problems, get one that AS A MINIMUM comes with a RWC). I'm from the area and happy to help out on a weekend for any bike that has rego/rwc :)

  8. i will test ride it. i just don't have the knowledge base that i'm guessing alot of you guys have. how to inspect it properly.

    i'll get him to get a rwc, i sure as shit ain't buying the bike without one.

    if he won't agree to get it rwc before sale, then i won't buy it.
