Test Ride
« on: December 22, 2011, 05:10:36 AM »
Calling all UK XTourer lover.... I need your advise.

I will be going to Birmingham for my cusin weddinf reception in June 2012.
Since the XTourer not confirm yet in Singapore, i was wondering if its possible for me to do a test ride in UK?
Maybe you guys could ask around the dealers that provide test rides and revert back....
Totally on love with this ride but have to feel it too rite...

Freaky, having lived in the UK many years I'd say its unlikely  :151:

They'll usually want you to have a European, preferably UK driving license and also usually they'll ask for a utility (gas, water, electric) bill shown in your name with a UK address that tallies with your driving license.

I can't believed how lapse/different it is in the States. All the dealer bikes seem to have their ignition keys left in them and some dealers don't even ask to see your license before letting you test ride. In the UK a lot of those test riders wouldn't come back with the bikes again!  :001:
