* Important Since liability insurance cover for North America, (USA and Canada) was withdrawn from Motorcycle Clubs including LDMCC Ltd. by providers of such insurance, the supply of spares by the Club to these countries is no longer available. This action is much regretted but, in the absence of insurance, an accident identified as having been caused by, or even contributed to, by failure of a component supplied by the Club could lead to legal action which could bankrupt the Club and its Officers in defence of such action even if negligence could not be proved.
