MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to trans-
port a person while seated in a scooter.
Although your scooter may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not designed to provide proper
restraint during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in
the motor vehicle seat with safety belts fastened securely.
WARNING! Do not sit on your scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/
or property damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your scooter and its batteries are properly secured when it is
being transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your
PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle
control lever contact. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR SCOOTER
Getting onto and off of your scooter requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety
tips when getting onto and off of your scooter:
n Ensure that your scooter is not in freewheel mode. See V. Your Victory XL-4.
n Make certain that the seat is locked into place and the key is removed from the key switch.
n The seat armrests can be flipped up to make getting onto and off of the scooter easier.
WARNING! Position yourself as far back as possible in the scooter seat to prevent the
scooter from tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause
the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
REACHING AND BENDING
Avoid reaching or bending while driving your scooter. When reaching, bending, or leaning while seated on
your scooter, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the scooter from tipping. Pride
recommends that the scooter user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching
in the presence of a qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the
floor by reaching down between your knees. Movements such as these may change your
center of gravity and the weight distribution of the scooter and cause your scooter to tip,
possibly resulting in personal injury. Keep your hands away from the tires when driving.
