For myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, assignees, and successors in interest  (collectively “Successors”) I HEREBY WAIVE,  RELEASE, DISCHARGE, HOLD HARMLESS, AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE AND AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, the Releasees, Explorify Tours llc, Explorify Rentals llc, Explorify llc, Harley-Davidson Motor Cycles, Inc., H-D Michigan, Inc., Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd., Windy City Fox Motorsports Group with all associated dealerships, as well as any other sponsors of this Tour, the organizer and any promoting organizations, property owners, law enforcement agencies, all public entities, special districts and properties, and their respective agents, officials, and employees through or by which the Tour will be held, (the foregoing are also collectively deemed to be Releasees), FROM ANY and all rights and CLAIMS, INCLUDING CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE RELEASEES’ OWN NEGLIGENCE, which I have or which may hereafter accrue to me, and from any and all damages which may be sustained by me directly and indirectly in connection with the Tour, or arising out of or in connection with the use of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycles or other motor vehicles provided for the Tour or arising out of my participation in, or association with, the Tour, or travel to or return from the Tour.

I agree is it my sole responsibility to be familiar with the Releasee’s rules, and any special regulations for the Tour.  I understand and agree that situations may arise during the Tour which may be beyond the immediate control of Tour officials or organizers, and I must ride so as to neither endanger myself or others.  I agree to abide by the directions/rules given by the organizers of the Tour as well as the speed limits and all other traffic laws and regulations applicable in each country/state visited during my participation in the Tour.  I certify I will wear personal protective equipment (including, but not limited to a helmet) while operating a motorcycle during the Tour, which equipment is or may be required by the laws of the country/state in which my participation occurs.  I assume all responsibility and liability for the selection, condition, and adequacy of my equipment.  I have no physical or medical condition which, to my knowledge, would endanger myself or others if I participate in the Tour, or would interfere with my ability to participate in the Tour.

I certify that I will hold a valid heavyweight motorcycle operator’s license as required by the laws of each country in which my participation occurs, or that I will only ride as a passenger with a driver that holds the appropriate license as described above.

I will hold and maintain adequate medical, motorcycle/car and travel insurance valid for each country visited during my participation in the Tour, and I will produce evidence of such insurance to CMT/Explorify prior to commencing the Tour.

I understand that my right to participate in the Tour may be revoked without refund if I am in violation of the rules set forth above, or I act or conduct myself in an unsafe manner, or any manner disruptive to the operation of the Tour.

I grant to CMT/Explorify the absolute and irrevocable right and unrestricted license to use any photographs that they have taken or may take of me or in which I may be included with others during the Tour, to use, reuse, publish, and republish the photographs in whole or in part, individually or in connection with other material, in any and all media now or hereafter known, including the internet, and for any purpose whatsoever, specifically including illustration, promotion, art, editorial, advertising, and trade, without restriction as to alteration; and to use my name in connection with any use if they so choose. I release and discharge CMT/Explorify from any and all claims and demands that may arise out of or in connection with the use of the photographs. I grant to CMT/Explorify unrestricted permission to exchange personal information such as my name, address, etc. with Harley-Davidson Ltd.

I agree, for myself and my successors, that the above representations are contractually binding, and are not mere recitals, and that should I or my successors assert any claim in contravention of this agreement, the asserting party

shall be liable for the expenses (including legal fees) incurred by the other party or parties in defending unless the other party or parties are finally adjudged liable on such claim for willful and wanton negligence.  This agreement may not be modified orally, and a waiver of any provisions shall not be construed as a modification of any other provision herein or as a consent to any other provision herein or as a consent to any subsequent waiver or modification.

Every term and provision of this agreement is intended to be severable.  If anyone or more item is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that shall not affect the other terms and provisions, which shall remain binding and enforceable.

I hereby certify that I have read this Participant Statement and Release Form in its entirety. Confirming my purchase to CMT/Explorify indicates that I fully understand it and agree with its contents.

 In no event shall CMT/Explorify be liable for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever, even if CMT/Explorify has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages, whether in an action under contract, negligence, or any other theory, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or performance of the information, services, products, and materials available from this site. These limitations shall apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy.
