    Test ride time!

    So I finally found a dealer near me that allows test rides and they happen to have an fz09 available, so I'll be going there on Saturday to test ride it, is there anything I have to sign? Or anything I have to have on me? (other than a helmet and m class endorsement) a little advice would be awesome.

    Man, what an exciting time! I wish I could be of some help, but I honestly don't remember what paperwork was involved with my FZ test ride, but I do remember the feeling I got when I motored out of that dealer's parking lot. Enjoy and take it easy.

    Be ready to sign the papers for ownership. I don't think many have test rode and not purchased as a result.

    All dealers are different but mine requires you wear full gear. Helmet, jacket, and gloves. If you don't have any of that stuff they will have loaners. Obviously, show up wearing pants and closed-toed shoes.

    When you get back from your test ride, try your hardest to not have a huge smile. If you take your helmet off and they see a huge grin they'll know they have you hook, line and sinker and it will hurt you when it comes time to negotiate a price.

    My dealer requires you to sign a waiver form, wear a helmet, and have an m class license.

    You could call the dealership and ask them what is required so you are prepared

    Any test ride here you'll need a helmet, a copy of your drivers license, proof you have a valid motorcycle drivers license and a credit card number to charge any damages to if you crash, lol.
    Ride to work, work to ride.

    Ok, so i did the test ride earlier today and i think im in love! so now that i have made to decision to sell my zx6r to get one, what kind of price should i be expecting? the one i test rode only had 170 miles on it and it was a 2016 (raven), i think he said like $6,999 otd, but im not sure if thats good. (i've never bought a bike new :/ )

    and again thank you all for the help so far
