Well since I’m losing the sidecar rig and can’t afford another one *cough cough bmw/goldwing base* she can’t really go with so she can be included as long as the bike and her are going to the right home

If all goes well I won’t have to make those decisions and I can continue on my path.

Put them in the side car!

I would NOT let a buyer ride any bike I have for sale, period.

I hadn’t made it that far but I would probably ride them in the sidecar. If they were knowledgeable about Urals then I would allow a small test ride. Cash in hand of course. If I did get hits from people unfamiliar with the brand I would have made them learn about Urals and test them before I even discuss the sale lol. I think some of the issues I had in the past were because of a motorcycle (non Ural) shop working on my bike and I think they simply didn’t know how to operate it properly. I won’t get into what happened or who it was but it is something I worry about.

I road my 2-wheeler to go look at the Ural when I purchased it last year. I knew more about the brand, the bike, and sidecars in general than the seller and she gladly handed me the keys to the bike to take it for a ride. She was also a police officer and could probably take me down easily, so I guess i wasn't much of a threat.

A word of warning.....even if prospective buyer hands you the cash. They can get on your rig and hit someone, hit a car, hit anything. You're on the hook. Your insurance covers it, you cover the deducible, etc. So what if you have the cash in hand, they can hire a lawyer who informs you the brakes were not working, tires bald, whatever. Lawsuit. It's simply not worth what could be a massive headache.

We're blessed with the ability to put someone in the side car and get a very good idea of how the bike runs without handing them the keys. This advice is free, take it how you will.

I once let a 16-year-old kid test ride my Kymco dirt bike, said he was an experience ride, etc. His whole family came with him to look at the bike. The kid gave the Kymco the gas, lost control and came within a few inches of hitting his parents car, finally dumping the bike in my yard. He was a little bruised but not as bad as the bike. I and his family were just glad he wasn't injured seriously. They said they'd be back the next day with cash to buy the bike and guess what, they did! The moral of this story is I'll never let a potential buyer ride one of my bikes.

On the buyer test ride thing play it by gut feeling when meeting face to face. Location comes into play. If I were downtown Houston or Chicago I'd be a bit more concerned but rural not so much. Hold the buyers drivers lic while he test rides. If he disappears the cops will have something solid to go on. I would make sure he at least has a mc endorsement on his lic or he rides in the tub. If no lic no test ride. Gotta cover your butt if he crashes and hurts somebody cause somebodies lawyer is going to mention "you let an unlicensed guy ride a mc?" CYA.

I have had a few incidents with potential motorcycle buyers. I was selling a Sportster and put the guy on the back and rode around the block. He said he wanted it and wanted to ride it to DMV for the paper work. I said not neccessary and he said he changed his mind about the sale. A couple of weeks later I pulled into a gas station and he was there. He saw me and ran away.
I had a mini bike for sale and a kid came with his mother to look at it. He said he could ride so I let him try it. We started it and off he went full throttle until he hit the curb across the street. His mom decided not to buy it.
I sold a Honda 250 to a high school kid and a few weeks later his dad called me and wanted his money back. I went to pick up the bike but it was in pieces and the tank was leaning against a wall with gas streaking the new custom paint job. I convinced him to keep it.
I have sold quite a few bikes and to err on the side of caution can simplify the transaction in the long run.
