So.... I'm in the market for a new bike. I'm leaning toward brand new and I have a list of bikes I want to look at and test. But here's the problem: Whenever I ask for a test ride I keep getting told that they don't have a test bike available, that they "don't really do that", or "you'll have to wait for us to get a second hand one in" I have tried a few shops too. some of them might have the more popular bikes available to test. eg. Suzuki shops might have GSXR's but I want to try an SV650s. Is it that they can't keep stock? Is it that the manufacturers don't supply them? I just dont get it. While i'm not in a mad hurry to upgrade, I didn't thik I would be waiting for test rides as long as I am. Oh well. Off for a try of the F800ST this arvo, so thats something!
