Since I have been enjoying the stupid questions thread, and am in the process of buying my first bike in way too long I thought this could be fun as well. So what are the dumbest things you've heard from someone trying to sell you a bike? Either at a dealership or a private seller. A few of my favorites so far: Me sitting on an XR250 Tornado trying not to look too uncomfortable: "Yeah, that's a great bike, and real fast too. You'd love it for adventure riding, you can ride it all day" So I walk over to the brand new V-Strom: "Oh yeah, best adventure bike money can buy, and it's a twin cylinder so you won't need to get off after an hour of riding like with that little Honda." Different place, my buddy is with me, semi-pro MotoX rider. He is looking at a new Husky, salesman looks at him and says: "nah kid, you don't want something like that, that's for pro racing type stuff. Plus it's not street legal, so you never have anywhere to ride it unless you live on a farm" Private seller: "Oh yeah, this is a great bike for someone learning to ride, it was my first bike and I learned to ride on it. Sure I dropped it a load of times at first but at least it's nice and light so it's easy to pick up again."
