    Odes warning labels need an English proof-reader.

    I'm loving my new Odes Dominator X 5-seater. I'm a little embarrassed to show my friends, though. I'm afraid they will actually read the warning labels and see things like:

    "Watch your head. Wear your helmAT". (Helmet)

    "Kick the neutral position backward comes to reverse." ?!?

    "Kindly note that when wheels were stuck in mud or can't move, please use winch or other way to move it out. Please don't press gas too much for protecting the CVT belt" (the wrong use of tense would drive my English teacher wild).

    Adults must supervise use byminors.Check.." (Space bar!)

    And on and on!

    Surely can't be the only grammar nerd being driven crazy by these "lost in translation" labels. Anyone else?

    Mine came off pretty easy. They had only been stuck on for an hour and 20 minutes, which is the amount of time it took for my dealer to deliver mine.

    This is what you get with a litigation crazy society. The lawyers get involved and force the manufacturer/dealer to identify every conceivable thing that could possibly go wrong. Don't get me wrong, I believe that safety should be the primary consideration, but, really, they have gone too far.
