Swore he had ridden. No, he had never owned a bike, but a girlfriend of his had owned a Harley and he had ridden that, said he.

Oh, and could I ride it to his house for him after he bought it?

I knew the type, but it's a sad state of affairs to see a grown man lying so badly when I wouldn't have judged him one way or the other.

I spent time there at his house teaching him about the clutch and getting him started going up and down the street.
