A dealer wont give a test ride -  :435: :435: :435:
that's the main point of paying the 'extra' that a dealer charges as it's part of the expected service in the UK
I wouldn't consider paying all that money for a bike unless I have had a decent ride out
I'm with you - wallet stays in pocket moment for sure !

The ones I have been in here in Texas, and not all of the dealers by any means, have told me it's an insurance thing.  The Japanese makes have such a dominant share of the non Harley market I think they just don't want a piece of their inventory discounted to sell it once its demo days are over.  As for the insurance thing, then why can Harley, Indian, BMW, and Triumph dealers do it.

Sorry for the rant, back to topic.  Hope ZX9landie can find something suitable, preferably a Trophy with a lowering kit he can sit on to see how it feels.  Anyone near him to help with that?
