THIS WAIVER AND RELEASE WILL INCLUDE, BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO, ANY INJURY, DAMAGE OR LOSS TO MY PERSON OR PROPERTY WHICH MAY BE CAUSED BY ANY ACT, OR FAILURE TO ACT, OF ANY RELEASED PARTY, OR SUSTAINED BY ME BEFORE, DURING OR AFTER THE RENTAL. THIS WAIVER AND RELEASE DOES NOT RELEASE JUPITER’S FROM ANY LIABILITY THAT IS CAUSED BY JUPITER’SR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OR FROM ANY OTHER LIABILITY THAT CAN NOT BE EFFECTIVELY RELEASED BY ME UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
THIS WAIVER AND RELEASE IS IN ADDITION TO, AND IS NOT INTENDED TO LIMIT IN ANY MANNER, THE MOTORCYCLE RENTAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY EXECUTED BY ME ALONG WITH THIS AGREEMENT. IN THE EVENT THAT THE TERMS OF THIS WAIVER AND THE MOTORCYCLE RENTAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY CONFLICT IN ANY MANNER, THE TERMS THE MOTORCYCLE RENTAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY WILL GOVERN.
  1. DAMAGE – LOSS OF MOTORCYCLE: If the Motorcycle is stolen or damaged irrespective of my negligence or intentional misconduct, I will pay to Jupiter’s (a) its retail fair market value before theft or damage, unless Jupiter’s repair cost plus the reduction of the Motorcycles value after repairs is less and Jupiter’s are not required by law to salvage the Motorcycle, in which case I will pay the latter amount; (b) loss of use based on reasonable downtime, or as specified by law (except for theft, where the motorcycle is not covered), (c) Diminution of value, loss of use, and administrative fees, and (d) all towing and storage charges, all of which are referred to herein as “the Loss”. If I believe my responsibility for the Loss is covered by my own insurance or my charge card issuer I will provide Jupiter’s my insurer and policy number or card issuer and its insurer. I authorize Jupiter’s to collect the Loss directly from the insurer. I also authorize Jupiter’s to collect the Loss directly from a third party responsible for the Loss. Jupiter’s will refund any sum Jupiter’s collect in excess of the Loss.
I AGREE THAT JUPITER’S WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO ME FOR ANY LOSS, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OR EXPENSES OF ANY KIND CAUSED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BY, OR ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH, THE MOTORCYCLE, ITS USE, OR OPERATION OR FAILURE TO OPERATE, MAINTENANCE OR FAILURE TO BE MAINTAINED, OR BY ANY INTERRUPTION OF SERVICE OR LOSS OF USE OF THE MOTORCYCLE.
  1. PROHIBITED USES: I will not use or permit the Motorcycle to be used (a) by any person other than me; (b) to carry passengers or property for hire; (c) to tow, or to be towed; (d) to be operated on an unpaved road; (e) to be operated in a race or contest; (f) to instruct an unlicensed person in the operation of the Motorcycle; (g) to be operated by any person who is prohibited by law from operating a motor vehicle; (h) while under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance, or a prescription or nonprescription drug which could impair my ability to operate the Motorcycle; (i) for an illegal purpose, including transportation of a controlled substance or contraband. A violation of this paragraph automatically terminates this Agreement and makes me liable to Jupiter’s for all fines, forfeitures, liens and recovery and storage costs, including all related legal expenses.
  2. LIABILITY INSURANCE: Anyone operating the Motorcycle as permitted by this agreement will be protected against liability for causing bodily injury or death to others or damaging the property of someone other than the operator and/or the Renter up to the minimum financial responsibility limits required by applicable law. The limit for bodily injury sustained by one person includes any claim for loss for that persons consortium or services. Where the law extends coverage to a non-permitted operator the same limits will apply. Otherwise, such coverage is provided according to the terms, and subject to all the conditions and exclusions, of a standard Motorcycle liability policy, including all requirements as to notice and cooperation on my part, which are made a part of this agreement. Jupiter’s can provide coverage under a certificate of self-insurance or insurance policy, or both, as Jupiter’s choose. In any case, a copy of the policy and/or certificate will be available for my inspection at Jupiter’s main office. I understand that unless required by applicable law, Jupiter’s will not provide (a) coverage for fines, penalties, punitive or exemplary damages; (b) coverage for bodily injury to, or death of myself, while not an operator, or any member of my family or operators family; (c) defense against any claim after applicable limits of coverage that Jupiter’s furnish have been tendered, or (d) supplementary no fault, non-compulsory uninsured, underinsured motorist coverage, and any other optional or rejectable coverage, and Jupiter’s and I reject all such coverages to the extent permitted by law. Where any of these coverages are required or implied by law the limits will be the minimum required under applicable law. If I am charged with a criminal offense, including but not limited to driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance while renting the Motorcycle, or if the Motorcycle is used to transport contraband or for illegal trade, or if the Motorcycle is damaged while it is being operated by anyone under 25 years of age or not properly licensed, or if I fail to furnish Jupiter’s with a police report from the scene of any accident involving the Motorcycle or its theft, or if I fail to maintain all fluid levels or fail to use the specified fuel, or otherwise fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, I will not be covered by Jupiter’s liability insurance and I will be liable to Jupiter’s and all third parties for any and all claims and damages. I understand that passengers are not covered for personal injury under Jupiter’s liability insurance and therefore ride at their own risk. I acknowledge responsibility for any passengers I carry on the Motorcycle.
THE FOREGOING COVERAGE PROVIDED BY JUPITER’S WILL BE EXCESS OVER ANY APPLICABLE INSURANCE AVAILABLE TO ME OR ANY OTHER OPERATOR, FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE, WHETHER PRIMARY, EXCESS, SECONDARY OR CONTINGENT IN ANY WAY.
  1. INDEMNIFICATION: I agree to indemnify Jupiter’s for any Loss, liability, Diminution of value, loss of use, administrative fees, and expense that Jupiter’s incur arising out of (a) my use of the Motorcycle (but only to the extent such Loss, liability and expense exceeds the greater of Jupiter’s statutory liability as an owner, if any, or the limits of any liability insurance that Jupiter’s furnish to me) or (b) any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation made by me in this Agreement, the Motorcycle Rental Release of Liability, the Loss Damage Waiver, or the Acknowledgments and Assumption of Risk.

My signature hereon authorizes Jupiter’s to charge the charge card specified above for any and all charges arising from the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
  3. NO ASSIGNMENT: I WILL NOT SELL, TRANSFER, ASSIGN OR SUBLEASE ANY OF MY INTEREST IN THIS AGREEMENT OR THE MOTORCYCLE AND ANY SUCH ATTEMPTED SALE, ASSIGNMENT TRANSFER OR SUBLEASE IS VOID AND OF NO EFFECT.
  4. MISCELLANEOUS: (a) the section headings are inserted in this Agreement for convenience of reference and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement, (b) any provision of this Agreement that is unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective only to the extent of such unenforceability without invalidating any other provision of this Agreement. (c) the validity and interpretation of this Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the state in which this Agreement is signed, without giving effect to such states conflicts of laws provisions. (d) Any change in this Agreement or Jupiter’s rights must be in writing and signed by Jupiter’s authorized representative.
