Focusing on bicycling and motorcycling
Funny as long as you weren't the poor guy on the back! Whenever Larry was selling one of his motorcycles, the full price was in his hand in cash BEFORE any test ride! If for some reason the buyer decided against the purchase it was easy to hand back the dough as long as the motorcycle came back uncrashed.
OMG! Now that I picked myself off the floor from laughing so hard....I lent a college friend my Honda 450 to take his motorcycle road test because his smaller Yamaha two stroke was a bit...um...rough running. He promptly hit and hopped the curb and fell over when doing the circles and figure 8's. That was even after I reset the idle screws to a high rpm so the bike would idle its way through the exercise without potentially jumpy throttle input, a trick I learned when taking my test.The examiner looked at me in consternation as if to say "Not ready for prime time" Had to laugh later, but not in my mortified friend's presence. He eventually came back and passed, and rode many years without a revisit to horizontality on Mr. Pavement.
