Sucks they wrecked
common sense of which? i dont have the time to wash my bikes so i have them detailed every once in a while. or the common sense of the owner of the carwash to not put armour all (etc.) on the tread? lot of factors, i feel in favor of the owners of the bike.

I've had a pretty good scare when I armoralled my car tires, I couldn't imagine a bike. But who doesn't wash their own bike, so little surface area, it doesn't take long at all. My opinion is that the case should be dismissed because both parties are .

I think its all the Riders Fault....Dumbass.
1st- Wash your own Bike, its not that Hard or time consuming
2nd- He took it to a CAR wash, they dont know NOT to Armour-All MC tires, they wash CARS not bikes
3rd- He should have TOLD them NOT to Armour-All his tires right off the bat
4th- Pre-Trip Inspection? Would have been see very Easily, Slimey looking tires
Simple as that

and it could be a BS law suit. They may have applied a tire shine product properly (not on any tread), but the family is grasping for straws for an excuse. We wont know until testimony is presented.

If you take your auto to be detailed and you pay and drive off without inspecting the work done, then it's your own fault.

The bike owner should have noticed the shiney tires and told them to wash it off immediately. There's no shame in having somebody else wash your toys, but in the end you're ultimately responsible for your own actions, e.g., riding a bike that wasn't prepared for the street.

I hope the rider wasn't seriously injured in this accident.

I say fault of the owner. As others have pointed out, there were several factors home dude could have done to ensure a good trip home. he failed at each opporotunity to ensure proper checks.

(or could have washed it himself)

CAR wash was paid to wash a vehicle. make it sparkle and shine. they did it.

You guys that find some fault in them having their washed cracks me up. Plenty of people with cruisers pay to have then detailed. This reminds me of the last time I had my truck detailed. They used silicone spray on the running board. You couldn't see it but it was slick as owl .

i pay girls in bikini's to wash my bike when there's a event. No shame in not washing one's own vehicle.

They'll lose.
If it even was tire shine, the carwash has ways around liability:

1. The carwash simply has to say that the tireshine was part of the package the customer selected themselves. Plaintiff was aware of the dangers and proceeded anyway. (Assumption of Risk)

2. The plaintiff was negligent in avoiding the danger by not checking their vehicle, liked stated above. (Contributory negligence.)
