Thanks...The good news is that I really love the bike, so I'm not in a huge hurry to sell it. I've purposely not done a bunch of looking / test riding, as that tends to make me do less than smart stuff...

There was thread here somewhere about what sellers thought about letting potential buyers test ride or not their bikes - Was a good read. You might want search it out...Good luck with the sale, looks in good condition.

Thanks DreamRider...I actually started a thread on here about that, last year when I sold my Road King. I also posted on a couple of other forums, and got largely the same opinion...big deposit (full price ideal), then test ride with refund available once the bike comes back safe. A small minority said that they would not even consider buying a bike from someone who asked for a deposit. I'll go search out the threads again, and see what the current consensus is.

I had two people walk away when I asked for a deposit, but neither even had a motorcycle license...one guy brought his 16 year old son to be his 'test pilot'. The guy I sold it to was new, but he brought a guy with him for the test ride. That guy had a motorcycle license, and had been riding for years (took his word for it to some extent, but you can tell). I asked the buyer for a $1000 deposit, and he didn't blink. Test pilot was gone maybe 4 minutes, and we did the deal.
