So he's not really suing HD, he's suing the dealer.

IDK, you go to a dealership to get a motorcycle, but then when you do, you sue the dealer. Nothing against a service member, but at the same time he went to the dealer to buy a motorcycle, he must of known he was not working and had no money to pay for it way before they signed any loan papers. I would figure the thought would of crossed his mind at some point before the purchase as to how he was going to pay for it. I know little or nothing about PTSD, but I do know about sleep deprivation, and even after being awake for several days I know when I have no money.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

It'll be interesting how it turns out. I'm not sure the courts would side with him on the mental illness thing since it could open a can of worms for anyone with a mental condition to renege on their deals.

He might be better off using the fact that the dealer did not do due diligence in acertaining whether or not he was legally qualified to operate the machine before they tossed him the keys.

Seems like there should be some minimum standard business owners have in dispensing products. I know if I get too drunk, the bar maid won't give me any more. She always wants paid for what she's given me though.

There seams to be more to it. You think dealer would just charge him some kinda restock.
Sounds like family got pissie with dealer and that was it dealer wants all his money.
I am sure were not getting all the store.

Hard to say, but I personally believe in personal responsibility. A guy comes in and if he paid cash then what is the dealership supposed to do, refuse. If he got a loan then just don't pay it, some one will be along shortly to pick it up.

Sales people don't care how they make their money.
Lets say your 18 years old with 13 grand in your pocket and never even ridden any bike before. You walk into a Suzuki dealer.
Do you think they won't sell you a new Hayabusa.?
Hope sales folks don't sleep well.

They may not care, but that doesn't mean they can't be held legally liable.

But assuming the veteran had to get financing, he would have also had to get insurance to cover the lender. Insurance would surely want verification of license to operate a vehicle they are insuring.

Anyway, if the vet was able to do all that and talk his way out of providing proof of funds, a job, a license etc. It's going to be a pretty big stretch to try to prove he was mentally incompetent at the time of the purchase IMHO.

Got any examples. Priced Attorneys lately?
