Those are almost the same words a man told my friend when he wanted to buy his Suzuki 1300r. Then the man took it for a test drive and total it after siding into a tree. Man just walked away and left my buddy with a useless bike. My buddy had to take him to small claims court. I don't know how it turn out.
My car is stroked, cams, ported heads and blown. I want cash in hand if you want to drive. It you don't want it you get your money back. If you wreck it you get nothing. If you don't have cash you get a ride and when you get cash you get a drive. Has nothing to do with trusting the next person, it has everything to do with covering your own expense.
i understand that, but now u expect that guy to trust that you'll give his money back if he decides not to buy it. or if something breaks that isn't his fault. it's a tough spot, and everyone will be comfortable doing different things. i'd never buy a vehicle without a test drive or with paying first, i don't mind giving id or whatever tho. every situation will be different, depends on vibe from buyer/seller.

When I bought my two motorcycles, I let the other person hold the cash and we had an agreement that if I wrecked it, I bought it. I had a couple friends go with for those transactions.
would u be comfortable with that? i mean even if u did wreck it, or just wanted your friends to take the money back, the guy would be screwed. i guess i've been pretty lucky. i bought my bike cash, almost $10k, and he let me ride it. but we were at his parents house, who were there and looked pretty nervous, and my dad was there helping me load it.
my friend test drove a bike he was looking at and during the test ride the clutch cable broke. the owner got all pissed saying he owes him this or that. well, the cable was totally rusted through and was just time to snap. if he had the money, he woulda tried to keep it. that's why i'd never give money until a transaction is being made. in court, if you give money, i would expect that would be considered a sale. and i wouldn't wanna chance that.

A 260hp (+15-20hp for bolt ons) - Vert is fast? LMAO thats funny. My wifes AWD Turbo 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe comes stock near 300hp and will womp bolt on new edge cars. The turbo power curve alone leaves you wanting to push the gas pedal over and over lol.
ya, i was kinda thinkin same thing. people don't really have same idea of power. not to offend op but just in general. friend let her brother drive her 07, just cams, gear, and tune, and he spun out into a pole. and that was 330 at the wheels i think. u can just imagine what 500-600 at the wheels would be like. people hit the gas and don't expect to spin the tires in 2nd and 3rd gears. those situations are different. that's why very few people have driven my car, makes me very nervous. not cuz they mean to, but they just don't know what they're getting into.
