My favorite part is how the moran rode to back to his place and proceeded to spray paint it black.

Dude been listening to way too much Rolling Stones.

/FIVE felony warrants and they only found him after he stole a bike?

I was expecting a guy to die on the test drive after that headline...

This is literally the exact reason why you require cash in hand before a test ride (that and in case they drop it).

As a man who's had a motorcycle stolen from him (and returned MUCH worse for wear), ...

I can say this isn't how it's done.

You know it's a hick town in flyover country when the cops actually do their jobs instead of just taking a report.

Unlawful taking charges?

I knew a guy who stole a nice BMW from some poor old man using the same brilliant scheme. This guy once drove a beater car off a dock by putting a brick on the gas pedal than told the cops he thought there was some old couple driving it. The guy was one of the biggest losers I have ever known. The last time I saw him he asked me to give him a ride to the local Chinese restaurant and he came running out to my car with two guys chasing him , he told me to roll . I should have probably known that there was something wrong when he gave them the name Anthony Perkins when they asked for a name for his food.

Uh, yeah, when selling a motorcycle or a bicycle and someone wants to take a test drive or test ride there is an easy way to make sure they do not just take off with it: require a security deposit equal to the full cost of the cycle.

I mean, his dumbass inompetence is one thing.   But, the mugshot that lets you know that in his world, he is the smartest motherfarker alive?   well, that's another thing.

I hate this farking country.

CSB: Back in the 80s, somebody used a stolen or lost ID that belonged to my step brother and stole a motorcycle in the same way.  I remember answering the phone when the cops were looking around for him and being like holy crap my bro stole a bike and not knowing what to do.

Last time I checked out a bike was many years ago.  They photocopied my driver's license and made me leave my debit card with them.  I guess not coming back from a test ride has happened a few times.  One place even required you to have motorcycle insurance to test ride, which makes it impossible for a first time buyer to test ride.  The better place had their own insurance to cover that.

Hick town? Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska and has a population of just under 300,000. It's also the home of the University of Nebraska.

All of you guys are saying cash-in-hand, but I'm just gonna ride biatch and ask him if he wants to do sensual lovemaking afterward.

was he wearing black denim trousers and motocycle boots, and a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back?

If somebody wants to ride on a bike I have for sale, he/she/whatever can ride on the back while I drive.  Nobody touches the shift lever of my bike, ever.

This could be a metaphor in so many other threads.

This.

When I've sold bikes the answer to "test ride?" is no unless I know you.  Go to a dealership and test ride one of theirs, this one rides the same.

/And no, I'm not dropping the price because you had to drive a long way to get here.
//That's happened more than once

Investigators identified 24-year old Benjamin Kawamura as the suspect.

Was the bike a Kawasaki?

Just take it to the Pay N Spray. Must faster, and they do a better job.

Cash in hand to test ride. Double Dummy there.
 
2020-08-06 11:49:41 AM  
Headline should have been, "Huge moron allows motorcycle test ride without cash in hand".
 
2020-08-06 9:23:59 PM  
Give me your keys, boots and clothes.  I won't be back.
