Terms and Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS INCLUDE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:

PRODUCT LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION

By Ordering, Purchasing, Attaching and Using Motorcycle Drop Guards to said motorcycle, Purchaser, Buyer, Seller and User agrees to, and will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Seller (“MDG Products”) each of its Affiliates, and each of its and its Affiliates’ employees, officers, directors and agents (each, a “Seller Indemnified Party”) from and against any and all liability, loss, loss of income, damage to persons or property, or damage, or damage to any portion of a motorcycle whether Installing, Training Related or During Any Operation With an MDG Product Installed or In Use, expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) and cost (collectively, a “Liability”) that the Seller Indemnified Party may be required to pay to one or more Third Parties resulting from, or arising out of (a) personal injury or death of any person as a result of the use of any Motorcycle with MDG Products installed or attached.  Purchaser, User, Motorcycle Operator and/or Motorcycle Rider, furthermore agrees to, and will, use Motorcycle Drop Guards at their own risks, and agrees to understand that riding a motorcycle is a dangerous activity, and that anything can happen when a motorcycle is dropped even at slow speeds, based on rider experience and response to the motorcycle being dropped. 

Motorcycle Drop Guards are intended to assist in protecting the specific parts of a motorcycle they are specifically designed for and properly attached to, from minor scratches and gouges while a rider practices slow speed maneuvers (at Less than 1500 RPM’s) in a controlled environment while learning maneuvers such as u-turns in spaces of 18-20 feet under qualified instruction.  Using RPM's above 1500 is not recommended and is not needed to make slow controlled u-turns and other slow speed maneuvers in a parking lot.     

MDG Products recommends and advises to remove motorcycle drop guards and any other product such as highway pegs, whips, or any other accessory that could affect the lean angle or operation of any motorcycle, prior to riding the motorcycle on the street.

WARNING:  

Though turns of 17 feet, and various street riding examples have been performed on video by trained motorcycle operators, please be advised Motorcycle Drop Guards are not recommended or intended for those types of turns and/or street riding skills.  The Lean Limit of any motorcycle can, and will be affected and/or interfered by tire pressure, mechanical condition of a motorcycle, as well as the use of various accessories including motorcycle drop guards, and could, and probably will interfere with turns of less than 18 feet as well as leaning the motorcycle prior to the lean angle allowed by the motorcycle manufacturer.

It is highly recommended and strongly advised to remove the primary lean indicator, and all front and rear motorcycle drop guards prior to any type of street riding, or confined space maneuvering of less than 18 feet.  Motorcycle Drop Guards are not meant for riding conditions and skills involving leaning the bike in curves, especially extreme curved and winding roadways such as Tail of the Dragon or any winding or curved roads, as this type of maneuvering may, could and probably will be interfered with by the motorcycle drop guards, as may any other after market accessory such as highway pegs or by lowering the motorcycle.

Caution should be used when using motorcycle drop guards in conjunction with a lowered motorcycle. Motorcycle Drop Guards should be removed prior to riding any lowered motorcycle on the street.  

The primary lean indicator/guard is just that, an indicator of lean angle for training in slow speed controlled maneuvers to assist riders in learning u-turns and slow speed maneuvers while training in advanced training classes under qualified instructors.  Though not its first primary purpose, the primary lean indicator has been used as a very effective protection device for the primary cover but should be removed for street riding until a rider reaches advanced levels and has developed a strong knowledge of lean angle control with the motorcycle to avoid any lean angle issues.  The primary guard could possibly affect various leans executed out on the roadway. The primary lean indicator will not work as intended on lowered bikes.  Please do not install on any motorcycle that has been altered from manufactured / manufacturer height.

Dropping, Dragging and Crashing the motorcycle into the concrete at any speed or while in motion especially at higher than 1200 RPM’s, is strongly not advised as injury or damage could and probably will occur. 

Though not guaranteed or the intended purpose, Motorcycle Drop Guards may assist in protection to other parts of a motorcycle from receiving minor scratches and gouges such as exhaust pipes and floor board brackets, but there is no guarantee, as this is not the purpose or function of the motorcycle drop guards.  Please remember, anything can happen when a motorcycle is dropped based on operator reaction, operating surfaces, and mechanical condition of said motorcycle.

Saddle bags, especially stretched saddle bags should be removed, prior to slow speed practice, as these types of saddle bags have been shown to strike the ground when a Harley Touring Model has been dropped on its side.  Though motorcycle drop guards have been shown and may assist in reducing damage to these types of saddle bags, PLEASE BE ADVISED that is not their intended purpose.

Motorcycle Drop Guards are not meant, intended or expected to protect any rider or passenger or any other person related to any incident involving the use of any MDG Product such as the motorcycle drop guards, from any injury, any property damage resulting from an accident, fall, or any type of motorcycle tip over, drop, or loss of control of by the motorcycle operator during a lean at speeds greater than 1200 RPM’s or while operating any motorcycle under any condition. 

WARNING

Please do not operate or ride any motorcycle in which motorcycle drop guards are installed if you the user, rider, or passenger, do not feel safe in doing so, or have any question or doubt about your safety, or the risk of damage to any motorcycle, or property with the use of motorcycle drop guards installed and/or used or in use on any motorcycle.

Turning a motorcycle at slow speeds takes time and practice and can be extremely dangerous, as the motorcycle weighs 500-950 pounds. 

Motorcycles when dropped while moving can slide, as can also be expected with motorcycle drop guards.  Care should be taken to release all power to the motorcycle if, and when, the motorcycle is dropped.  

PLEASE BE ADVISED:

Before operating any motorcycle while learning and practicing slow speed maneuvers operators should seek and be trained by experienced, qualified professional motorcycle instructors.  MDG Products encourages all riders to be trained properly in basic and advanced motorcycle skills.  A qualified motorcycle instructor should always be consulted, and present during slow speed training for any rider, to assist should there be the need.

Based on the impact of a 500-950 pound motorcycle being dropped on the ground during slow speed maneuvers and training, or accidental tip overs, as well as the vibrations in which Harley Davidson motorcycles produce while being operated, all can and could be cause for fasteners to come loose.  Please be advised as with oil pressure and tire pressure, please make sure to check the guards for any loose fasteners, damage and positioning, before each and every ride, and each and every time the motorcycle is dropped. 

Improperly installing motorcycle drop guards can and probably will cause the guards to possibly break or strip the fasteners.  Improperly installing motorcycle drop guards will cause the drop guards not to receive impact where appropriate and/or to not function properly as intended, and could possibly bend parts and/or break fasteners.

Drop Guards are made specifically for Stock OEM Harley Front Crash Bars    1 ¼" inch (1.25) in diameter and standard stock OEM rear Harley saddle bag bars such as those on a Standard Stock Harley Road King, measuring approximately 7/8" in diameter.  

Motorcycle Drop guards do not protect the rider or passengers from injury.

Motorcycle drop guards are not intended to assist in protecting any other part from minor scratching other than those specifically and properly attached and only in the intended area for protection.
