Yes, kids don't get it. Had a customer with a brand new BMW K1300S that I took out after service. I may look young but am much older. The customer was on edge upon realizing this and said "I hope you took it easy on my new sport bike!" I replied "I ride these all the time, besides, if I lose my licence I lose my job." That calmed him down.

Even the new bikes fresh out of the crate were ridden after PDI. We found lots of little issues. Of course, one of the few exceptions (no time, freezing rain), the coolant was never installed at the factory but the overflow bottle was full. No coolant means no temperature reading. Owner seized it on the first ride. Thanks Murphy.
