That's essentially how Canadians are forced to buy bikes. I don't know any dealership that allows you to test drive new motorcycles. The insurance companies will not provide insurance coverage for test rides. The only chance you have for a test ride is when the manufacturer comes to town with their roadshow and brings a handful of demo bikes for a day. You have to sign up way in advance to get one of the eight slots per bike.

I was surprised that it was accepted to drop over $20k on a bike haven never drive it before.
