Participation in riding events

I agree that there are dangers relied to motorcycle riding and I further agree that on tours with “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company”, there are certain additional dangers and risks, namely the following:

Personal injuries of all nature are possible and I understand I must act responsibly while riding on the public roads, off-roads and other terrains/roads I might encounter during our tour with “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company”.

I understand I cannot claim any personal or other damages from “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff.

I also understand that I need to have an insurance issued by myself, and make sure this insurance is covering all kinds of sports, extreme sports, off-road (no official racing), personal injuries, hospitalization, rescue and other related coverage suitable for off-road and street roads tours.

I confirm having an international valid and suitable driving license for the kind of bikes I will use in these tours provided by “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company”. I understand I cannot find “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff liable for this.

On the tours, there are sometimes chosen riding techniques and riding speeds similar to motorcycle riding under competition conditions. Risks or dangers can’t be excluded, even with the highest diligence of “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and the tourguides. In particular can’t be excluded the danger of a damage caused by another participant of the tour. Following to the use of the motorcycle off road, sometimes even in heavy terrain, there is a high possibility of damage or increased wear.

The tours lead through way less or unsettled areas. The dangers in these areas consist in particular in deep canyons and obstacles like per example rocks, trees, holes and indentations, stone walls and ruins of walls and further varying or difficult soil, which can’t be seen or occur, following to the speed, very quickly. Communication is difficult in some areas. In case of an accident, rescue and medical care could be available late or not at all.

Especially in rocky or mountain areas, the weather conditions can be extreme or change quickly and radically without warning.

I accept all these dangers and risks on the tours with “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company”, in particular the risk of injury, demise, damage or loss of property.

I admit, that the pleasure and the excitement on tours like the ones offered by “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” are partly related to the motorcycle riding on particular routes or in the sometimes difficult terrain. The dangers under these riding conditions are part of the fascination on tours such “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company”.

It’s solely my task to estimate, if my riding skills are on a level high enough to master the route shown by the tourguides. The organizer or the tourguide isn’t obligated to pinpoint and verify my riding skills and my abilities.

I take cognizance of the specific dangers and risks on the tours and I take part at the tour on my own risk.

I understand and agree there is no liability of “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff on behalf of injuries and damages which I may sustain during the tour.

I understand and agree there is no liability of “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff neither willfully or grossly negligent for an injury or damage caused by a partner or a member of the riding group.

I understand and agree that the protective gear and clothing I am using are under my responsibility, and I cannot ride without these (helmet, googles, chest protection, elbow protection, gloves, jersey and pants, knee protection and riding boots). I also know I must use prescription glasses if so are mentioned in my international driver’s license.

In the event I am using “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” rented or free of charge protective riding gear, I understand the same as above mentioned rules applies. I understand I cannot hold “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff liable for the quality or performance of these protective gear and accessories.

Any liability of “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” or the tourguides is excluded for material damage or damage to persons if caused by myself, except if these damages are covered by the liability insurance prescribed by the regulations. In any case, the scope of the claim is limited at the extent of the insurance cover in the precise case. I accept in any case to not to prosecute “North Star – The Enduro Touring Company” or the tourguide and their overseas partners and representatives in other countries and staff or any on their behalf.
