When selling a bike my rule has always been cash in hand before they ride. Its not a promise to buy the bike but security for you if they wreck it. it's the ole" you break it, you bought it" motto.
I understand its hard to expect someone to make the purchase without a test ride.....I know I would never buy without a test. So, with the risk on you by handing over the keys, ask for something in return. Although I've never done it maybe you can write up a small "contract" stating you will hold the money as insurance until the completion of the test ride. It is NOT a promise to purchase but merely collateral?
Also maybe check with your insurance carrier as you may not be covered for something if they caused harm or damage to persons/property. Just a thought.
Good luck on the sale and congrats on the decision to buy a Vic....you won't be dissapointed.
