Poolside- OK, got it, but it degenerated at some point there. The beginning of the thread was fascinating and as I said, I and my bike, have been direct beneficiaries of your knowledge in the past so thanks again...

johnjen- Yes, I certainly know who you are. PM sent.....

Little early yet. I believe Poolside indicated in Post #1 that his hoped-for ship date is around May 1.

Geeze... I go away for the weekend, crash my GS and come back. Now all the drama is gone. I was enjoying watching two guys slug it out with handbags at twenty paces!

Question Huh?

What the heck is going on here?

A while back (2 months?) there were posts about hotrodding and such. There was a discussion about this great new product that was going to improve the running of my 2010 R1200, unlike the thingamajig I bought from the guy in Denmark, or some European country, that only served to blacken my aluminum boxes and rack.

I ordered your cool product and went about my business. Now I glance back at this forum and there appears to be a ball busting fight going on here.

I don't want to scan back 30 pages to figure out what happened, and I don't really care as long as I'm going to end up with what I paid for. Do I now have to start worrying about pin placement and switching on the fly and hooking up other other geek oriented stuff to get this thing to work on my bike?

I do not have any objection to the emails and PM's being posted.
howdy, Mr. Cob,

let me try to use what I've learned in law school to explain why what I've highlighted in red above is so important. It's not just limited to your satisfaction with the $72 part and his liability towards you. Most people here would reasonably believe that you agreed to the terms. Poolside may even be a reasonable person and maybe he personally believes you agreed to the terms.

Let's say you install the gizzmo and go for a ride. you go flying around a corner and for some reason the throttle sticks wide open, you loose control and you and your bike go sliding across the road. Coming the other way is a bus from St. Olaf's School for the Gifted Blind. Trying to avoid running over you, the bus driver swerves, hits a tree and the bus bursts into flames, killing the bus driver, 7 nuns and 16 blind kids who just came back from willing scholarships to Yale. You get sued by the bus company, the bus driver's wife, the catholic church and the parents of each of the 16 children. During deposition, the lawyer asks you what happens and you say "I installed a gizmo I bought from Poolside, and the throttle stuck open and I lost control." So the plaintiff's lawyer adds Poolside's company to the lawsuit, thinking that maybe the part was defective and that Poolside still assumed liability for the defective part.

Now, IF you'd said 'I Agree to the Terms of the Sale', Poolside's lawyer could submit that info to the court and their company would be removed from the suit. Cost to Poolside's company: $300 for the lawyer to write the letter. But, since you didn't say those exact words, there IS a question as to whether a reasonable person would think you'd agreed to all of the terms. The judge isn't just going to say "Heck, I'm a reasonable person, and I think Mr. Cob agreed, so I'll dismiss Poolside's company from the suit." He's going to round up 12 reasonable people, stick them in a room and let them figure out what you agreed to.

So, now Poolside has to pay his lawyer to sit there through jury selection and the trial against you before even getting to the part where the plaintiff tries to prove that you didn't accept the terms of the agreement and therefore Poolside's company may still be liable. Even if the lawyer failed to prove anything and the suit is dismissed (Congrats, by the way), Poolside still had to pay his lawyer $30,000 to sit through the trial, because he may have been on the hook for all of those deaths IF the jury had found out that you didn't accept the terms.

I know that's a crazy scenario, but that's why those terms are so important. Assuming Poolside is making $20 profit on each gizmo, he's apparently made the decision that it's worth the risk of selling the product because he's limited his possible exposure to $300 in atty fees because all the attorney has to do is pull out the piece of paper that says "I accept the terms of the sale" with your signature on it. But since you didn't say THOSE EXACT WORDS, he may now be exposed for $30,000 in legal fees.

It's not just about whether Poolside would take your words as acceptance, it's whether he can prove clearly and convincingly, without any doubt, that you accepted the terms, or if he has to incur the expenses of having reasonable people determine whether you accepted the terms.

Would you willingly take on the (very slight) risk of an additional $30,000 in exposure to sell one part to one person, when you're not making any additional profit?

Mr Cob,

Another thought. Suppose Poolside sells 20,000 units of his gizmo, and it's me that has the crash causing the blind kids to die a firey death. IF the plaintiff's lawyer found out that they'd sold the gizmo to you for the same price as I'd paid for it, without requiring you to agree to the terms, with the exact language, he could argue that Poolside got no benefit for the limitiation of liability in his terms, since he was willing to sell the product to you for the same price without you agreeing to the terms. Therefore, that clause isn't an enforceable element of the contract since Poolside placed no value on it, therefore Poolside may be willing to assume liability for all of the parts that he's sold.

While that's tenuous, it is something the plaintiff's lawyer could present, and the only way Poolside could counter that is to pay an attorney to defend the company.

Guys, PLEASE don't drag up crap that shouldn't have been drug up in the first place.

POOLSIDE! You rule. Your dedication to this product, and your honesty with the challenges you face in getting it made are refreshing. Keep up the good work!
