Any test ride in New England possible?

Hi all,

I know this is a big favor to ask...especially from someone on a forum who nobody knows personally. I'm in the market to purchase a Vee next spring, FINALLY, but would really like to take a test ride before purchasing one. Here in New England dealers just don't do test rides of new bikes. I think if I would have test ridden my KLR before purchase, I would have ended up with a new Vee back in '06.

If anyone would allow a short test ride some day on a weekend, even just 10 minutes or so should be enough for me to find out how I fit the bike, and it fits me, it would be most appreciated. Or if anyone knows where there is a motorcycle rental place that has a Vee.

I would of course bring insurance information showing my coverage (license is insured), would have photo ID, and whatever the owner would want. As for my riding ability, I've been on bikes since I was 6 (33 years ago) and have ridden everything from 200s to my father's KZ1300 and Valkyrie. I've owned an ST1100, an old Honda Hurricane 1000, and lots of other bikes.

Thanks in advance.
