I don't think I'd loan my bike to someone who was going to take a trip with it, but I have handed my keys to several people over the years, to take my bike out for a test ride.
One of my favorites was my Suzuki Marauder because I always shut off the gas and the petcock switch was hard to find. It would go 1-2 miles before it would shut down so the person riding would usually be gone for a while.
My best story was when my best friend got cancer and hadn't ridden in over a year. One late May day I rode over to check on him and his sister said he seems to be feeling pretty good. So when he came out to talk to me, I threw him the keys to my Sporty, told him to take it around the block, and he took off on it. He was gone for over a half hour and his sister was very worried, She thought he was going around the block, I told her it was probably a very long block on the other side of town. When he got back, he was nothin' but ONE BIG GRIN!. Sadly that was his last ride.
As far as crash bars go, If I had a tendency to drop my bike, in parking lots, slow speeds, etc. I would put them on. As far as laying it down at higher speeds, sliders would be a safer bet.
