FOR RENTALS COMMENCING IN CALIFORNIA: You are responsible for all collision damage to the Motorcycle, even if someone else caused it or the cause is unknown.  You are responsible for the cost of repair up to the value of the Motorcycle, towing, storage, and impound fees.  Your own insurance, or the issuer of the credit card you use to pay for the rental may cover all or part of your financial responsibility for damage to, or loss of, the rented motorcycle.  You should check with your insurance company, or credit card issuer, to find out about your coverage and the amount of deductible, if any, for which you may be liable. If you use a credit card that provides coverage for your responsibility for damage to, or loss of, the Motorcycle, you should check with the issuer to determine whether or not you must first exhaust the coverage limits of your own insurance before the credit card coverage applies.  We will not hold you responsible for damage to or loss of the Motorcycle if you buy CDW. But, CDW will not protect you if: (a) if you provided fraudulent information to us or if you provided false information to us and we would not have rented the Motorcycle had we received true information; (b) if damage to or loss of the Motorcycle results from: (i) your intentional, willful, wanton, or reckless conduct; (ii) operation of the Motorcycle under the influence of drugs or alcohol in violation of § 23152 of the California Vehicle Code; or (iii) towing or pushing anything, or operation of the Motorcycle on an unpaved road if the damage or loss is a direct result of the road or driving conditions; or  (c) if damage to or loss of the Motorcycle occurs while the Motorcycle is: (i) used for commercial hire; (ii) used in connection with conduct that could be properly charged as a felony, or involved in a speed test, contest, or driver training activity; (iii) operated by a person other than an Authorized Driver; or, (iv) operated outside the United States.  The fee for Collision Damage Waiver is limited to the amount noted on the current Price List.

  1. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION

Pre-Dispute Resolution Procedure: Before asserting a claim in any proceeding (including, but not limited to, in an individual arbitration proceeding or in a small claims court proceeding), you and Rental Company agree that each shall give the other party written notice of the claim to be asserted 30 days before initiating a proceeding and make a reasonable good faith effort to resolve the claim. If you intend to assert a claim against Rental Company, you must send the written notice of the claim to Attention: HR USA – MOTORCYCLE RENTALS & TOURS, INC., 2875 East Patrick Lane Suite B - Las Vegas, Nevada, +1 702 723 9783. Rental Company intends to assert a claim against you, we will send the written notice of the claim to you at your address appearing in our records. The parties may, but are under no obligation to, engage in privileged settlement negotiations during this 30 day period. NO SETTLEMENT DEMAND OR SETTLEMENT OFFER USED IN THIS PRE-DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS MAY BE USED IN ANY PROCEEDING, INCLUDING AS EVIDENCE OR AS AN ADMISSION OF ANY LIABILITY OR DAMAGES (OR LACK THEREOF). Dispute Resolution: (Not applicable if mandatory arbitration is prohibited by law).  Except as otherwise provided below, in the event of a dispute that cannot be resolved informally through the pre-dispute resolution procedure, all disputes between you and Rental Company arising out of, relating to or in connection with your rental of a car from Rental Company and the Rental Agreement shall be exclusively adjudicated by binding arbitration through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to the AAA’s then-current rules for commercial arbitration. There is an impartial arbitrator but no judge or jury in arbitration. Both parties waive the right to jury trial.  Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court and review by a court is limited.

YOU AND RENTAL COMPANY AGREE THAT ANY SUCH ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. Notwithstanding any provision in the Rental Agreement to the contrary, if the class action waiver in the prior sentence is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to pursue dispute resolution by binding arbitration. If you are an individual (instead of, for instance, a partnership, corporation, or other form of entity or non-natural person), in the event that (1) your claim is less than $10,000, and (2) you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Rental Company will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation. This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any provision in the Rental Agreement to the contrary, the parties agree that if Rental Company seeks to delete or materially modify the agreement to arbitrate from this dispute resolution provision, any such deletion or material modification will not apply to any individual claim(s) of which you have already provided notice to Rental Company. Information on AAA, its rules and procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim can be found by contacting AAA at 800-778-7879 or on its website at http://www.adr.org.

Disputes and claims that are within the scope of a small claims court’s authority, as well as disputes and claims regarding physical bodily injury and/or damage to or loss of a Vehicle related to your Rental Company rental, are exempt from the foregoing dispute resolution provision.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Commercial Rules of the AAA, the parties agree to submit any dispute regarding the determination of the scope and validity of this arbitration provision and its exclusions (arbitrability) to a court rather than to an arbitrator.

The Motorcycle may be equipped with global positioning satellite (GPS) technology or another telematics system, and/or an event data recorder (EDR).  You acknowledge and authorize that your use of this Motorcycle may be remotely monitored by us or on behalf of us through such systems to the extent permitted by law. This remote monitoring may include collection of Motorcycle data, such as: location, odometer, oil life, fuel level, tire pressure, battery state of charge, diagnostic trouble codes, and other elements we may deem necessary.  To the extent permitted by law, we may disable the Motorcycle when we deem necessary, including if you breach this Agreement.   These systems may use cellular communications, and you should have no expectation of privacy related to your use of this Motorcycle.  You agree to inform all drivers and passengers of the Motorcycle of the terms of this section, and that you have authorized release of information collected by GPS or other telematics system or EDR.  We are not responsible for the operability of any telematics navigational or other system included with the Motorcycle.  To the extent permitted by law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from any damage to persons or property caused by failure of the GPS or other telematics system or EDR to operate properly, or otherwise arising from the use of the GPS or other telematics system or EDR.
