Hi all, i am selling my bike and want to know what are the best precautions to take and avoid having your bike being stolen. I remember reading about a guy on another board who was given a fake drivers licence as security and the guy then took it for a test ride never to return :evil: I have only sold 2 bikes before in Melbourne back in the days when this stuff wasn't so common. Do people here let potential buyers take it for a test ride or do you pillion them? If i had another bike i could ride alongside them in case they tried to do a runner. The safest option seems to be to only allow a test ride after i have a 100% deposit of the agreed price. I imagine the test ride is the very last thing that's done once the buyer is 100% committed. I could also tell them to go to the local dealer and test ride the same model. Thanks for any thoughts or advice?
