"I'm sorry, but we can't offer you a loan on the motorcycle...."
Just yesterday, from a Harley guy.. seemed like a decent sort. "Boy, I like those Guzzis. Did you know they started as a helicopter engine?"
I finally said "if you can start it', its yours"
I'm selling a nice Suzi DR650. Dude show up at the house w/money in hand, all excited. I start the bike, blast up the driveway to demo. Come back & shut it down. He says "Can you start it again so I can see how to do it?" After I comply he says, "And that changes the gears?" (pointing at the clutch lever). Bad vibe runs up my spine. I question "Have you taken the Motorcycle Safety Course?" "No". "Do you have a motorcycle drivers license?" "No" "Have you ever ridden a motorcycle?" "No".........Flabbergas ted I say "Well just how are you going to get the bike home" (to Roanoke Va. about 60 miles) "I figured I'd just learn by riding it"....there was more, but Long Story Short. I told him the only way he was taking the bike off my property was on a trailer. STRONGLY advised him tp take the course etc. etc. He came back a couple days later...w/a trailer....and then I had to loan him tie downs! Heard from him about a year later, he was selling the bike & wanted to know if I had a "copy of the title" (he'd lost it). So, he'd survived, I'd say there might be something to the old adage about god looking after fools & drunks.ronkom
Why do you need more than one motorcycle?
MV Agusta , Moto Guzzi , maybe he is a bit confused Had a guy argue with me that Triumphs were built in Italy , and another guy swear up and down that MZ Agusta was a division of MV Agusta Damn tricky European motorcycle companies confusing us with all of these names that are so similar
I finally said "if you can start it', its yours"Didn't happen.
"I had no choice but to lay the bike down - that's the fastest way to stop a bike, ya know."I know it's a re-run but I still can't believe anyone is dumb enough to believe this.
