Section 3.02.        Representations and Warranties Regarding the Servicer.  The Servicer represents and warrants to the Trust, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders that:

 

19



 

(a)           Organization and Good Standing.  The Servicer is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization and has the corporate power to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is currently engaged.  The Servicer is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the character of the business transacted by it or properties owned or leased by it requires such qualification and in which the failure so to qualify would have a material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets, or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Servicer or the Trust.  The Servicer is properly licensed in each jurisdiction to the extent required by the laws of such jurisdiction to service the Contracts in accordance with the terms hereof other than such licenses the failure to obtain would not have a material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets, or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Servicer or on the ability of the Servicer to perform its obligations hereunder.

 

(b)           Authorization; Binding Obligations.  The Servicer has the power and authority to make, execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party and all of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party, and has taken all necessary corporate action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party.  This Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Servicer enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as enforcement of such terms may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by the availability of equitable remedies.

 

(c)           No Consent Required.  The Servicer is not required to obtain the consent of any other party or any consent, license, approval or authorization from, or registration or declaration with, any governmental authority, bureau or agency in connection with the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party.

 

(d)           No Violations.  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Servicer is a party by the Servicer will not violate any provisions of any existing law or regulation or any order or decree of any court or of any Federal or state regulatory body or administrative agency having jurisdiction over the Servicer or any of its properties or the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Servicer, or constitute a material breach of any mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement to which the Servicer is a party or by which the Servicer or any of the Servicer’s properties may be bound, or result in the creation of or imposition of any security interest, lien, pledge, preference, equity or encumbrance of any kind upon any of its properties pursuant to the terms of any such mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement, other than this Agreement.

 

(e)           Litigation.  No litigation or administrative proceeding of or before any court, tribunal or governmental body is currently pending, or to the knowledge of the Servicer threatened, against the Servicer or any of its properties or with respect to this Agreement, any other Transaction Document to which the Servicer is a party which, if adversely determined, would in the opinion of the Servicer have a material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Servicer or the Trust or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to which the Servicer is a party.

PERFECTION OF TRANSFER AND PROTECTION OF SECURITY INTERESTS

 

Section 4.01.        Custody of Contracts.  (a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 4.01, the contents of each Contract File shall be held and controlled by the Servicer, or its custodian, for the benefit of, and as agent for, the Trust as the owner thereof and the Indenture Trustee.

 

(b)           The Servicer agrees to maintain the related Contract Files at its offices, or the offices of one of its custodians, where they are currently maintained, or at such other offices of the Servicer, or its custodian, as shall from time to time be identified to the Trustees by written notice except that in the case of any Contracts constituting “electronic chattel paper”, the “authoritative copy” thereof shall be maintained by the Servicer in a computer system such that the Servicer maintains “control” over such “authoritative copy” (terms in quotation marks have the meaning assigned to them in the UCC).  The Servicer may temporarily move individual Contract Files or any portion thereof without notice as necessary to conduct collection and other servicing activities in accordance with its customary practices and procedures; provided, however, that the Servicer will take all action necessary to maintain the perfection of the Trust’s interest in the Contracts and the proceeds thereof.  It is intended that, by the Servicer’s agreement pursuant to Section 4.01(a) above and this Section 4.01(b), the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have possession of the Contract Files for purposes of Section 9-313 of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State in which the Contract Files are located and control of the Contract that represents electronic chattel paper for purposes of Section 9-105 of the Uniform Commercial Code.

 

(c)           As custodian, the Servicer shall have the following powers and perform the following duties:

 

(i)            hold, or cause the Servicer’s custodian to hold, the Contract Files on behalf of the Trust and the Indenture Trustee, maintain accurate records pertaining to each Contract to enable it to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, maintain a current inventory thereof and certify to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee annually that it, or its custodian, continues to maintain possession of such Contract Files;

 

(ii)           implement policies and procedures in writing and signed by a Servicing Officer with respect to persons authorized to have access to the Contract Files on the Servicer’s premises and the receipting for Contract Files taken from their storage area by an employee of the Servicer for purposes of servicing or any other purposes;

 

(iii)          attend to all details in connection with maintaining custody of the Contract Files on behalf of the Trust; and

 

(iv)          at all times maintain, or cause the Servicer’s custodian to maintain, the original of the fully executed Contract (or, in the case of “electronic chattel paper”, the “authoritative copy” of such Contract) in accordance with its customary practices and procedures, except as may be necessary to conduct collection and servicing activities in accordance with its customary practices and procedures (terms in quotation marks have the meaning assigned to them in the UCC).

 

(d)           In performing its duties under this Section 4.01, the Servicer agrees to act with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and care that it exercises with respect to similar contracts for the installment purchase of consumer goods owned and/or serviced by it, and in any event with no less degree of skill and care than would be exercised by a prudent servicer of promissory notes and security

 

21



 

agreements and retail installment sale contracts.  The Servicer shall promptly report to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee any failure by it, or its custodian, to hold the Contract Files as herein provided and shall promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure.  In acting as custodian of the Contract Files, the Servicer further agrees not to assert any legal or beneficial ownership interest in the Contracts or the Contract Files, except as provided in Section 5.06.  The Servicer agrees to indemnify the Noteholders, the Certificateholder, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, payments, costs, or expenses of any kind whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Noteholders, the Certificateholder, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee as the result of any act or omission by the Servicer relating to the maintenance and custody of the Contract Files; provided, however, that the Servicer will not be liable for any portion of any such amount resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any Noteholder, the Certificateholder, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee.  The Trustees shall have no duty to monitor or otherwise oversee the Servicer’s performance as custodian hereunder.

 

Section 4.02.        Filing.  On or prior to the Closing Date, the Servicer shall cause the UCC financing statement(s) referred to in Section 2.02(g) hereof to be filed and from time to time the Servicer shall take and cause to be taken such actions and execute such documents as are necessary or desirable or as the Owner Trustee or Indenture Trustee may reasonably request to perfect and protect the Trust’s first priority perfected interest in the Trust Corpus against all other persons, including, without limitation, the filing of financing statements, amendments thereto and continuation statements, the execution of transfer instruments and the making of notations on or taking possession of all records or documents of title.  All financing statements filed or to be filed against the Seller in favor of the Trust Depositor or the Trust in connection herewith describing the Contract Assets as collateral shall contain a statement to the following effect: “A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement, except as permitted in the Transfer and Sale Agreement or the Sale and Servicing Agreement, will violate the rights of the Secured Party.”

 

Section 4.03.        Name Change or Relocation.  (a) During the term of this Agreement, neither the Seller nor the Trust Depositor shall change its name, identity or structure or change its state of incorporation without first giving at least 30 days’ prior written notice to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee.

 

(b)           If any change in either the Seller’s or the Trust Depositor’s name, identity or structure or other action would make any financing or continuation statement or notice of lien filed under this Agreement seriously misleading within the meaning of applicable provisions of the UCC or any title statute, the Servicer, no later than five days after the effective date of such change, shall file such amendments, if any, as may be required to preserve and protect the Trust’s interests in the Trust Corpus and the proceeds thereof.  In addition, neither the Seller nor the Trust Depositor shall change its state of incorporation unless it has first taken such action as is advisable or necessary to preserve and protect the Trust’s interest in the Trust Corpus.  Promptly after taking any of the foregoing actions, the Servicer shall deliver to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee stating that, in the opinion of such counsel, all financing statements or amendments necessary to preserve and protect the interests of the Trust in the Trust Corpus and the Indenture Trustee in the Collateral have been filed, and reciting the details of such filing.

 

Section 4.04.        Costs and Expenses.  The Servicer agrees to pay all reasonable costs and disbursements in connection with the perfection and the maintenance of perfection, as against all third parties, of the Trust’s right, title and interest in and to the Contracts (including, without limitation, the security interest in the Motorcycles granted thereby).

ARTICLE FIVE

 

SERVICING OF CONTRACTS

 

Section 5.01.        Responsibility for Contract Administration.  The Servicer will have the sole obligation to manage, administer, service and make collections on the Contracts and perform or cause to be performed all contractual and customary undertakings of the holder of the Contracts to the Obligor.  The Owner Trustee, at the written request of a Servicing Officer, shall furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney or other documents necessary or appropriate in the opinion of the Owner Trustee to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder.  The Servicer is hereby appointed the servicer hereunder until such time as any Service Transfer may be effected under Article Eight.

 

Section 5.02.        Standard of Care.  In managing, administering, servicing and making collections on the Contracts pursuant to this Agreement, the Servicer will exercise that degree of skill and care consistent with the skill and care that the Servicer exercises with respect to similar contracts serviced by the Servicer, and, in any event no less degree of skill and care than would be exercised by a prudent servicer of promissory notes and security agreements and retail installment sale contracts; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not release or waive the right to collect the unpaid balance of any Contract except that with respect to a Contract that has become a Defaulted Contract, the Servicer, consistent with its collection policies, may release or waive the right to collect the unpaid balance of such Defaulted Contract in an effort to maximize collections thereon.

 

Section 5.03.        Records.  The Servicer shall, during the period it is servicer hereunder, maintain such books of account and other records as will enable the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee to determine the status of each Contract.

 

Section 5.04.        Inspection.  (a) At all times during the term hereof, the Servicer shall afford the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee and their respective authorized agents reasonable access during normal business hours to the Servicer’s records relating to the Contracts and will cause its personnel to assist in any examination of such records by the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee, or such authorized agents and allow copies of the same to be made.  The examination referred to in this Section will be conducted in a manner which does not unreasonably interfere with the Servicer’s normal operations or customer or employee relations.  Without otherwise limiting the scope of the examination the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee may, using generally accepted audit procedures, verify the status of each Contract and review the Computer File and records relating thereto for conformity to Monthly Reports prepared pursuant to Article Nine and compliance with the standards represented to exist as to each Contract in this Agreement.

 

(b)           At all times during the term hereof, the Servicer shall keep available a copy of the List of Contracts at its principal executive office for inspection by the Trustees.

 

Section 5.05.        Trust Accounts.  (a) On or before the Closing Date, the Trust Depositor shall establish the Trust Accounts, each with and in the name of the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders.  The Indenture Trustee is hereby required to ensure that each of the Trust Accounts is established and maintained as an Eligible Account.

 

(b)           The Indenture Trustee shall deposit (or, except as provided in Section 5.05(e) hereof, the Servicer shall deposit, with respect to payments by or on behalf of the Obligors received directly by the Servicer) into the Collection Account as promptly as practical (but in any case not later than the second Business Day following the processing thereof):

 

23



 

(i)            With respect to principal and interest on the Contracts received after the Cutoff Date (which for the purpose of this paragraph (b)(i) shall include those monies in the Lockbox Account allocable to principal and interest on the Contracts), all such amounts received by the Owner Trustee or Servicer;

 

(ii)           All Net Liquidation Proceeds related to the Contracts;

 

(iii)          The aggregate of the Purchase Prices for Contracts reacquired by the Trust Depositor as described in Section 7.08, and by the Seller as described in the Sale and Transfer Agreement;

 

(iv)          All Advances made by the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.03;

 

(v)           All amounts paid by the Servicer in connection with an optional purchase of the Contracts described in Section 7.10;

 

(vi)          The aggregate of the Purchase Prices for Contracts purchased by the Servicer as described in Section 7.11; and

 

(vii)         All amounts received in respect of interest, dividends, gains, income and earnings on investments of funds in the Collection Account and the Note Distribution Account as contemplated herein;

 

(c)           [Reserved].

 

(d)           The Servicer shall direct the Indenture Trustee to, and the Indenture Trustee shall, invest the amounts in the Trust Accounts in Qualified Eligible Investments that are payable on demand or that mature not later than one Business Day prior to the next succeeding Distribution Date.  Once such funds are invested, the Indenture Trustee shall not change the investment of such funds.  Any loss on such investments shall be charged to such Trust Account.  Funds in the Trust Accounts not so invested must be insured to the extent permitted by law by the Deposit Insurance Fund of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.  Subject to the restrictions herein, the Indenture Trustee may purchase a Qualified Eligible Investment from itself or an Affiliate.  Subject to the other provisions hereof, the Indenture Trustee shall have sole control over each such investment and the income thereon, and any certificate or other instrument evidencing any such investment, if any, shall be delivered directly to the Indenture Trustee or its agent, together with each document of transfer, if any, necessary to transfer title to such investment to the Indenture Trustee in a manner which complies with this Section 5.05(d).  All interest, dividends, gains upon sale and other income from, or earnings on, investments of funds in the Trust Accounts (other than the Reserve Fund) shall be deposited in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 5.05(b) and distributed on the applicable Distribution Date pursuant to Section 7.05.  The Trust Depositor and the Trust agree and acknowledge that the Indenture Trustee is to have “control” (within the meaning of Section 9-106 of the UCC) of collateral comprised of “investment property” (within the meaning of Section 9-102 of the UCC) for all purposes of this Agreement.

 

(e)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Servicer may remit payments on the Contracts and Net Liquidation Proceeds to the Collection Account in next-day funds or immediately available funds no later than 10:00 a.m., Central time, on the Business Day prior to the next succeeding Distribution Date, but only for so long as the short-term debt security rating of the Servicer is at least “P-1” by Moody’s and “F1” by Fitch.

 

(f)            The Servicer shall apply collections received in respect of a Contract as follows:

 

24



 

(i)            First, to accrued interest with respect to such Contract;

 

(ii)           Second, to pay any expenses and unpaid late charges or fees (if any) due and owing under such Contract; and

 

(iii)          Third, to principal until such Contract is paid in full;

 

provided, however, that the Servicer may, in its discretion, apply collections to any expenses and unpaid late charges or fees (if any) due and owing under a Contract after applying such collections to accrued interest with respect to a Contract and principal due and owing under the Contract.

 

(g)           Any collections on a Contract remaining after application by the Servicer in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.05(f) shall constitute an excess payment (an “Excess Payment”).  Excess Payments shall be applied as a prepayment of the Principal Balance of such Contract.

 

(h)           The Servicer will, from time to time as provided herein, be permitted to withdraw or request the withdrawal from the Collection Account any amount deposited therein that, based on the Servicer’s good-faith determination, was deposited in error.

 

Section 5.06.        Enforcement.  (a) The Servicer will, consistent with Section 5.02, act with respect to the Contracts in such manner as in its judgment will maximize the receipt of all payments called for under the terms of the Contracts.  The Servicer, acting as agent for the Trust pursuant to the Lockbox Agreement, shall use its best efforts to cause Obligors to make all payments on the Contracts to the Lockbox Account (either directly by remitting payments to the Lockbox, or indirectly by making payments through a credit card, direct debit, the telephone or the internet to an account of the Servicer which payments will be subsequently transferred from such account to the Lockbox Account).  The Servicer will act in a commercially reasonable manner with respect to the repossession and disposition of a Motorcycle following a default under the related Contract with a view to realizing proceeds at least equal to the Motorcycle’s fair market value.  If the Servicer determines that eventual payment in full of a Contract is unlikely, the Servicer will follow its normal practices and procedures to recover all amounts due upon that Contract, including repossessing and disposing of the related Motorcycle at a public or private sale or taking other action permitted by applicable law.  The Servicer will be entitled to recover all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by it in liquidating a Contract and disposing of the related Motorcycle.

 

(b)           The Servicer may sue to enforce or collect upon Contracts, in its own name, if possible, or as agent for the Trustees.  If the Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce a Contract, the act of commencement shall be deemed to be an automatic assignment of the Contract to the Servicer for purposes of collection only.  If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce a Contract on the ground that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Contract, the Owner Trustee (or the Indenture Trustee) on behalf of the Trust shall, at the Servicer’s expense, take such steps as the Servicer deems reasonably necessary to enforce the Contract, including bringing suit in its name or the names of the Noteholders under the Indenture and the Certificateholder as owner of the Trust.

 

(c)           The Servicer shall exercise any rights of recourse against third persons that exist with respect to any Contract in accordance with the Servicer’s usual practice.  In exercising recourse rights, the Servicer is authorized on the Trust’s and Indenture Trustee’s behalf to reassign the Defaulted Contract or the related Motorcycle to the Person against whom recourse exists at the price set forth in the document creating the recourse; provided, however, the Servicer in exercising recourse against any third persons as described in the immediately preceding sentence shall do so in such manner as in its judgment will

 

25



 

maximize the aggregate recovery with respect to the Contract; and provided further, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing the Servicer in its capacity as such may exercise such recourse only if such Contract (i) was not required to be reacquired by the Seller pursuant to the Transfer and Sale Agreement or (ii) was required to be reacquired by the Seller and the Seller has defaulted on such reacquisition obligation.

 

(d)           The Servicer will not permit any rescission or cancellation of any Contract due to the acts or omissions of the Trust Depositor.

 

(e)           Subject to Section 5.02, the Servicer may grant extensions, rebates or adjustments on a Contract; provided, however, that if the Servicer extends the date for final payment by the Obligor of any Contract beyond the Class A-4 Final Distribution Date, it shall promptly purchase such Contract pursuant to Section 7.11.

 

(f)            The Servicer will not add to the outstanding Principal Balance of any Contract the premium of any physical damage or other individual insurance on a Motorcycle securing such Contract it obtains on behalf of the Obligor under the terms of such Contract, but may create a separate Obligor obligation with respect to such premium if and as provided by the Contract.

 

(g)           If the Servicer shall have repossessed a Motorcycle on behalf of the Trust, the Servicer shall either (i) maintain at its expense physical damage insurance with respect to such Motorcycle, or (ii) indemnify the Trust against any damage to such Motorcycle prior to resale or other disposition.  The Servicer shall not allow such repossessed Motorcycles to be used in an active trade or business, but rather shall dispose of the Motorcycle in a reasonable time in accordance with the Servicer’s normal business practices.

 

Section 5.07.        Trustees to Cooperate.  Upon payment in full on any Contract, the Servicer shall (if the Servicer is not then in possession of the Contracts and Contract Files) notify the Trustees and request delivery of the Contract and Contract File to the Servicer.  Upon receipt of such notice and request, the Trustees shall promptly release or cause to be released such Contract and Contract File to the Servicer.  Upon receipt of such Contract and Contract File, each of the Trust Depositor and the Servicer is authorized to execute an instrument in satisfaction of such Contract and to do such other acts and execute such other documents as the Servicer deems necessary to discharge the Obligor thereunder and eliminate the security interest in the Motorcycle related thereto.  The Servicer shall determine when a Contract has been paid in full; to the extent that insufficient payments are received on a Contract credited by the Servicer as prepaid or paid in full and satisfied, the shortfall shall be paid by the Servicer out of its own funds.  From time to time as appropriate for servicing and repossession in connection with any Contract, if the Servicer is not then in possession of the Contracts and Contract Files, the Indenture Trustee shall, upon written request of a Servicing Officer and delivery to the Indenture Trustee of a receipt signed by such Servicing Officer, cause the original Contract and the related Contract File to be released to the Servicer and shall execute such documents as the Servicer shall deem reasonably necessary to the prosecution of any such proceedings.  Such receipt shall obligate the Servicer to return the original Contract and the related Contract File to the Indenture Trustee when the need by the Servicer has ceased unless the Contract shall be acquired as described in Section 7.10 or 7.11.  Upon request of a Servicing Officer, the Indenture Trustee shall perform such other acts as reasonably requested by the Servicer and otherwise cooperate with the Servicer in the enforcement of the Certificateholder’s rights and remedies with respect to the Contracts.

 

Section 5.08.        Costs and Expenses.  All costs and expenses incurred by the Servicer in carrying out its duties hereunder, fees and expenses of accountants and payments of all fees and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement of Contracts (including enforcement of Defaulted Contracts and

 

26



 

repossessions of Motorcycles securing such Contracts when such Contracts are not reacquired pursuant to Section 7.08) and all other fees and expenses not expressly stated hereunder to be for the account of the Trust shall be paid by the Servicer and the Servicer shall not be entitled to reimbursement hereunder.

 

Section 5.09.                         Maintenance of Security Interests in Motorcycles.  The Servicer shall take such steps as are necessary to maintain continuous perfection and the first priority of the security interest created by each Contract in the related Motorcycle.  The Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee hereby authorize the Servicer to take such steps as are necessary to perfect such security interest and to maintain the first priority thereof in the event of a relocation of a Motorcycle or for any other reason.

 

Section 5.10.                         Successor Servicer/Lockbox Agreements.  In the event the Servicer shall for any reason no longer be acting as such, the Successor Servicer shall thereupon assume all of the rights and obligations of the outgoing servicer under each Lockbox Agreement; provided, however, that the Successor Servicer shall not be liable for any acts or obligations of the Servicer arising prior to such succession.  In such event, the Successor Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed all of the outgoing Servicer’s interest therein and to have replaced the outgoing Servicer as a party to each such Lockbox Agreement to the same extent as if such Lockbox Agreement had been assigned to the Successor Servicer, except that the outgoing Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations on the part of the outgoing Servicer to a Lockbox Bank under such Lockbox Agreement.  The outgoing Servicer shall, upon the request of the Owner Trustee, but at the expense of the outgoing Servicer, deliver to the Successor Servicer all documents and records relating to each such Lockbox Agreement and an accounting of amounts collected and held by a Lockbox Bank and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of any Lockbox Agreement to the Successor Servicer.

 

Section 5.11.                         Separate Entity Existence.  The Servicer agrees to take or refrain from taking or engaging in with respect to the Trust Depositor, as applicable, each of the actions or activities specified in the “substantive consolidation” opinion of Foley & Lardner LLP (or in any related Certificate of the Servicer) delivered on the Closing Date, upon which the conclusions expressed therein are based.

(h)                                 Separate Entity Existence.  The Trust Depositor shall:

 

(i)                                     Maintain its own deposit account or accounts, separate from those of any Affiliate, with commercial banking institutions.  The funds of the Trust Depositor will not be diverted to any other Person or for other than authorized uses of the Trust Depositor.

 

(ii)                                  Ensure that, to the extent that it shares the same officers or other employees as any of its members or Affiliates, the salaries of and the expenses related to providing benefits to such officers and other employees shall be fairly allocated among such entities, and each such entity shall bear its fair share of the salary and benefit costs associated with all such common officers and employees.

(iii)                               Ensure that, to the extent that it jointly contracts with any of its members or Affiliates to do business with vendors or service providers or to share overhead expenses, the costs incurred in so doing shall be allocated fairly among such entities, and each such entity shall bear its fair share of such costs.  To the extent that the Trust Depositor contracts or does business with vendors or service providers when the goods and services provided are partially for the benefit of any other Person, the costs incurred in so doing shall be fairly allocated to or among such entities for whose benefit the goods and services are provided, and each such entity shall bear its fair share of such costs.  All material transactions between Trust Depositor and any of its Affiliates shall be only on an arm’s-length basis.

 

(iv)                              To the extent that the Trust Depositor and any of its members or Affiliates have offices in the same location, there shall be a fair and appropriate allocation of overhead costs among them, and each such entity shall bear its fair share of such expenses.

 

(v)                                 Conduct its affairs strictly in accordance with its By-laws and Articles of Incorporation, and observe all necessary, appropriate and customary corporate formalities, including, but not limited to, holding all regular and special stockholders’ and directors’ meetings appropriate to authorize all entity action, keeping separate and accurate records of such meetings and its actions, passing all resolutions or consents necessary to authorize actions taken or to be taken, and maintaining accurate and separate books, records and accounts, including, but not limited to, payroll and intercompany transaction accounts.

Section 6.02.                         Liability of Trust Depositor; Indemnities.  The Trust Depositor shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically undertaken by the Trust Depositor under this Agreement.

 

The Trust Depositor shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, WTNA, the Indenture Trustee and the Servicer from and against any taxes that may at any time be asserted against any such Person as a result of or relating to the transactions contemplated herein and in the other Transaction Documents, including any sales, gross receipts, gross margin, general corporation, tangible personal property, Illinois personal property replacement privilege or license taxes (but, in the case of the Issuer, not including any taxes asserted with respect to, and as of the date of, the transfer of the Contracts to the Issuer or the issuance and original sale of the Securities, or federal or other income taxes arising out of distributions on the Notes or the Certificate) and costs and expenses in defending against the same.

 

The Trust Depositor shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, WTNA, the Indenture Trustee and the Securityholders from and against any loss, liability or expense incurred by reason of the Trust Depositor’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (other than errors in judgment) in the performance of its duties under this Agreement, or by reason of reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement.

 

The Trust Depositor shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, WTNA and the Indenture Trustee from and against all costs, expenses, losses, claims, damages and liabilities arising out of or incurred in connection with the acceptance or performance of the trusts and duties herein and, in the case of the Owner Trustee, in the Trust Agreement and, in the case of the

 

29



 

Indenture Trustee, in the Indenture, except to the extent that such cost, expense, loss, claim, damage or liability in the case of (i) the Owner Trustee or WTNA, as the case may be, shall be due to the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Owner Trustee or WTNA, as the case may be, or shall arise from the breach by the Owner Trustee or WTNA, as the case may be, of any of its representations or warranties set forth in Section 7.03 of the Trust Agreement, or (ii) the Indenture Trustee, shall be due to the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Indenture Trustee.

 

The Trust Depositor shall be liable directly to and will indemnify any injured party or any other creditor of the Trust for all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses of the Trust to the extent that the Trust Depositor would be liable if the Trust were a partnership under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act in which Trust Depositor were a general partner; provided, however, that Trust Depositor shall not be liable for any losses incurred by a Certificateholder in the capacity of any investor in the Trust Certificate or a Noteholder in the capacity of an investor in the Notes.  In addition, any third party creditors of the Trust (other than in connection with the obligations described in the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence for which Trust Depositor shall not be liable) shall be deemed third party beneficiaries of this paragraph.  The obligations of Trust Depositor under this paragraph shall be evidenced by the Trust Certificate described in the Trust Agreement.

 

Indemnification under this Section shall include, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation and shall survive the termination of the Trust and the resignation or removal of the Trustees.  If the Trust Depositor shall have made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Section and the Person to or on behalf of whom such payments are made thereafter shall collect any of such amounts from others, such Person shall promptly repay such amounts to the Trust Depositor, without interest and the Trust Depositor may, as a condition to any such indemnification, require such Person to agree in writing to do so.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the obligations of the Trust Depositor under this Section are solely the corporate obligations of the Trust Depositor and shall be payable by it solely as provided in this Section.  The Trust Depositor shall only be required to make such payments required under this Section, (a) from funds available to it pursuant to, and in accordance with the payment priorities set forth in Section 7.05 and (b) to the extent that it receives additional funds designated for such purposes or to the extent that it has additional funds available (other than funds described in the preceding clause (a)) that would be in excess of amounts that would be necessary to pay the debt and other obligations of the Trust Depositor incurred in accordance with its Articles of Incorporation and all financing documents to which it is a party as they come due.  In addition, no amount owing by the Trust Depositor hereunder in excess of the liabilities that it is required to pay in accordance with the preceding sentence shall constitute a “claim” (as defined in Section 101(5) of the Bankruptcy Code) against it.  No recourse shall be had for the payment of any amount owing hereunder or any other obligation of, or claim against the Trust Depositor arising out of or based upon this Section against any stockholder, employee, officer, agent, director or authorized person of the Trust Depositor or Affiliate thereof; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not relieve any such person or entity of any liability they might otherwise have as a result of fraudulent actions or omissions taken by them.

 

Section 6.03.                         Merger or Consolidation of, or Assumption of the Obligations of, Trust Depositor; Certain Limitations.  Notwithstanding any other provision in this Section and any provision of law, the Trust Depositor shall not do any of the following:

 

(a)                                 engage in any business or activity other than as set forth in its Articles of Incorporation;

 

30



 

(b)                                 without the affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Board of Directors of the Trust Depositor (which must include the affirmative vote of at least two duly appointed Independent directors) (i) dissolve or liquidate, in whole or in part, or institute proceedings to be adjudicated bankrupt or insolvent, (ii) consent to the institution of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings against it, (iii) file a petition seeking or consent to reorganization or relief under any applicable federal or state law relating to bankruptcy, (iv) consent to the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator (or other similar official) of the corporation or a substantial part of its property, (v) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, (vi) admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or (vii) take any corporate action in furtherance of the actions set forth in clauses (i) through (vi) above; provided, however, that no director may be required by any shareholder of the Trust Depositor to consent to the institution of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings against the Trust Depositor so long as it is solvent; or

 

(c)                                  merge or consolidate with any other corporation, company or entity or sell all or substantially all of its assets or acquire all or substantially all of the assets or capital stock or other ownership interest of any other corporation, company or entity unless the Person formed by such consolidation or into which the Trust Depositor has merged or the Person which acquires by conveyance, transfer or lease substantially all the assets of the Trust Depositor as an entirety, can lawfully perform the obligations of the Trust Depositor hereunder and executes and delivers to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee an agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee which contains an assumption by such successor entity of the due and punctual performance and observance of each covenant and condition to be performed or observed by the Trust Depositor under this Agreement; provided that the Rating Agency Condition shall be satisfied with respect to any merger, consolidation or succession pursuant to this Section.

 

Section 6.04.                         Limitation on Liability of Trust Depositor and Others.  The Trust Depositor and any director or officer or employee or agent of the Trust Depositor may rely in good faith on any document of any kind, prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder.  The Trust Depositor and any director or officer or employee or agent of the Trust Depositor shall be reimbursed by the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee, as the case may be, for any contractual damages, liability or expense incurred by reason of the Owner Trustee’s or the Indenture Trustee’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (except errors in judgment) in the performance of their respective duties hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents, or by reason of reckless disregard of their respective obligations and duties hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents.  The Trust Depositor shall not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that shall not be incidental to its obligations under this Agreement, and that in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability.

 

Section 6.05.                         Trust Depositor Not to Resign.  Subject to the provisions of Section 6.03, the Trust Depositor shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it as Trust Depositor hereunder.

Section 7.01.                         Monthly Distributions.  (a)  Each Noteholder and Certificateholder as of the related Record Date shall be paid on each Distribution Date by wire transfer if such Noteholder or Certificateholder provides written instructions to the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, respectively, at least ten days prior to such Distribution Date.

 

(b)                                 The Indenture Trustee shall serve as the paying agent hereunder (the “Paying Agent”) and shall make the payments to or on behalf of the Noteholders and the Certificateholders required hereunder.  The Indenture Trustee hereby agrees that all amounts held by it for payment hereunder will be held in trust for the benefit of the Noteholders and the Certificateholders.

Section 7.03.                         Advances.  On each Determination Date, the Servicer shall compute the amount of Delinquent Interest, if any, on the Contracts.  Not later than each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall advance (each, an “Advance”) an amount equal to the Delinquent Interest for such Determination Date by depositing such amount in the Collection Account; provided, however, that the Servicer shall be obligated to advance Delinquent Interest only to the extent that the Servicer, in its sole discretion, expects that such advance will not become an Uncollectible Advance.  The Servicer shall indicate on each Monthly Report (i) the amount of Delinquent Interest, if any, on the Contracts for the related Determination Date and (ii) the amount of the Advance, if any, made by the Servicer in respect of the Delinquent Interest pursuant to this Section 7.03.  If the amount of such Advance is less than the amount of the Delinquent Interest, the relevant Monthly Report shall be accompanied by a certificate of a Servicing Officer setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for the determination by the Servicer that the portion of the Delinquent Interest not advanced would become an Uncollectible Advance.  By each Determination Date, the Servicer shall determine the amount of prior unreimbursed Advances for which it shall be entitled to be reimbursed pursuant to the provisions of this Section (such amount, the “Reimbursement Amount”).  The Servicer shall be entitled to be reimbursed for any outstanding Advance with respect to a Contract as provided in Section 7.05(a)(i).

(c)                                  The Indenture Trustee shall at the written direction of the Servicer invest the funds in the Reserve Fund in Qualified Eligible Investments.  Funds in the Reserve Fund shall be invested in investments that are payable on demand or mature on or before the Business Day prior to each Distribution Date.  Once such funds are invested, the Indenture Trustee shall not change the investment of such funds prior to maturity.  Upon any such investment, the Indenture Trustee shall, consistent with the definition of Qualified Eligible Investment herein, make an appropriate notation of the security interest in such Qualified Eligible Investment on the Indenture Trustee’s records, by book entry or otherwise.  All income and gain realized from any such investments as well as any interest earned on Reserve Fund Deposits shall be deposited and retained in the Reserve Fund (subject to Section 7.06(e)).  Losses, if any, realized on amounts in the Reserve Fund invested pursuant to this paragraph shall first be credited against undistributed investment earnings on amounts in the Reserve Fund invested pursuant to this paragraph, and shall thereafter be deemed to reduce the amount on deposit in the Reserve Fund.  Neither the Trust Depositor nor the Indenture Trustee shall be liable for the amount of any loss incurred in respect of any investment, or lack of investment, of funds held in the Reserve Fund.  All income or loss on funds held in the Reserve Fund shall be taxable to the Certificateholder.

 

(d)                                 Any Excess Amounts will be applied as provided in Section 7.05(a)(vi) to increase the balance of the Reserve Fund to the Specified Reserve Fund Balance.

Section 7.08.                         Purchase of Contracts for Breach of Representations and Warranties.

 

(a)                                 Upon a discovery by the Servicer, the Trust Depositor or the Trustees of a breach of a representation or warranty of the Seller as set forth in Exhibit J hereto that materially adversely affects the Trust’s interest in such Contract (without regard to the benefits of the Reserve Fund), the party discovering the breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties; provided, that the Trustees shall have no duty or obligation to inquire or to investigate the breach by the Seller of any of such representations or warranties.  The Trust Depositor shall reacquire from the Trust, and the Trust Depositor shall cause the Seller to reacquire from the Trust Depositor, as provided in the Transfer and Sale Agreement and in accordance with this Section 7.08, a Contract at its Purchase Price (which shall be deposited into the Collection Account), not later than two Business Days prior to the first Distribution Date after the last day of the calendar month in which the Trust Depositor or the Seller become aware or receive written notice from the Trustees, the Servicer or the Trust Depositor of any breach of a representation or warranty of the Seller set forth in Article III of the Transfer and Sale Agreement that materially and adversely affects such Contract or the Trust’s interest in such Contract and which breach has not been cured; provided, however, that with respect to any Contract described on the List of Contracts with respect to an incorrect unpaid Principal Balance which the Seller would otherwise be required to reacquire under the Transfer and Sale Agreement, the Seller may, in lieu of reacquiring such Contract, deposit in the Collection Account, not later than one Business Day prior to the first Distribution Date after the last day of the calendar month in which the Seller becomes aware of such inaccuracy, cash in an amount sufficient to cure any deficiency or discrepancy; and provided further that with respect to a breach of representation or warranty relating to the Contracts in the aggregate and not to any particular Contract the Seller may select Contracts (without adverse selection) to reacquire such that had such Contracts not been included as part of the Trust Corpus there would have been no breach of such representation or warranty.

 

(b)                                 If the Servicer determines in good faith that the representation and warranty of the Seller as set forth in Section 2(i) of Exhibit J hereto may have been violated with respect to one or more Contracts, and that amendment of the terms of such Contract(s) could better ensure compliance with applicable laws and if the Seller shall have notified the Servicer in writing of its intention to amend the terms of such Contract(s) to ensure compliance with applicable laws upon reacquisition pursuant to this Section 7.08(b) and the Transfer and Sale Agreement, the Servicer shall give prompt written notice of such determination to the other parties. The Trust Depositor shall reacquire from the Trust, and the Trust Depositor shall cause the Seller to reacquire from the Trust Depositor, as provided in the Transfer and Sale Agreement and in accordance with this Section 7.08, a Contract at its Purchase Price (which shall be deposited into the Collection Account), not later than two Business Days prior to the first Distribution Date after the last day of the calendar month in which the Trust Depositor and the Seller receive the written notice from the Servicer described above; provided, however, that no Contract shall be reacquired pursuant to this Section 7.08(b) if, after giving effect to such reacquisition, the aggregate Principal Balance of the Contracts so reacquired, measured as of the Cutoff Date, would exceed 10% of the Pool Balance as of the Cutoff Date.  For the avoidance of doubt, this provision does not limit the obligation of the Seller to repurchase any Contract for which there is a breach of a representation or warranty of the Seller as set forth in Exhibit J and there shall be no limitation on the Principal Balance or the number of Contracts that are required to be repurchased by the Seller in connection with a breach of a representation or warranty of the Seller as set forth in Exhibit J.

 

(c)                                  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the obligations of the Seller under the Transfer and Sale Agreement and described in this Section 7.08 shall not terminate or be deemed released by any party hereto upon a Service Transfer pursuant to Article Eight.  The reacquisition obligations described in this Section 7.08 are in no way to be satisfied with monies on deposit in the

 

35



 

Reserve Fund.  The sole remedy of the Issuer, the Trustees, and the Noteholders against the Seller with respect to a breach of a representation or warranty of the Seller shall be to require the Seller to reacquire the related Contract pursuant to this Section 7.08.

 

Section 7.09.                         Reassignment of Reacquired Contracts.  Upon receipt by the Indenture Trustee for deposit in the Collection Account of the Purchase Price as described in Section 7.08, Section 7.10 or Section 7.11, and upon receipt of a certificate of a Servicing Officer in the form attached hereto as Exhibit G, the Indenture Trustee shall release its lien on and the Trust shall assign to the Trust Depositor, the Seller or the Servicer, as applicable, all of the Trust’s right, title and interest in the reacquired or purchased Contract without recourse, representation or warranty, except as to the absence of liens, charges or encumbrances created by or arising as a result of actions of the Trustees.

 

Section 7.10.                         Servicer’s Purchase Option.  On written notice to the Owner Trustee and Indenture Trustee at least 20 days prior to a Distribution Date, and provided that the Pool Balance is then less than 10% of the Pool Balance as of the Cutoff Date, the Servicer may (but is not required to) purchase on that Distribution Date all outstanding Contracts (and related Contract Assets) at a price equal to the aggregate Outstanding Amount of the Notes on the previous Distribution Date plus the aggregate of the Note Interest Distributable Amount for the current Distribution Date, the Reimbursement Amount (if any) as well as accrued and unpaid Monthly Servicing Fees and the Indenture Trustee Fee to the date of such purchase.  Such price shall be deposited in the Collection Account not later than one (1) Business Day before such Distribution Date, against the Owner Trustee’s and Indenture Trustee’s release of the Contracts and the Contract Files to the Servicer.

 

Section 7.11.                         Purchase of Contracts for Breach of Servicing Obligations.  Upon a discovery by the Servicer or the Trustees of a breach of any of the covenants of the Servicer set forth in Section 5.02, 5.06 or 5.09 that materially adversely affects the Trust’s interest in a Contract (without regard to the benefits of the Reserve Fund), the party discovering the breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties; provided that the failure to maintain perfection of the security interest in the Motorcycle securing a Contract in accordance with Section 5.09, shall be deemed to be a breach materially and adversely affecting the Trust’s interest in the Contract or in the related Contracts; provided, further, that the Trustees shall have no duty or obligation to inquire or to investigate the breach by the Servicer of any of such covenants.  The Servicer, in accordance with this Section 7.11, shall purchase such Contract at its Purchase Price, two Business Days prior to the first Distribution Date after the last day of the calendar month in which the Servicer becomes aware, or receives written notice from the Trustees of any breach described in the preceding sentence which breach has not been cured; provided, however, that with respect to a breach of any of the covenants of the Servicer set forth in Section 5.02, 5.06 or 5.09 relating to the Contracts in the aggregate and not to any particular Contract the Servicer may select Contracts (without adverse selection) to purchase such that had such Contracts not been included as part of the Trust Corpus there would have been no breach of such covenant.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the obligation of the Servicer described in this Section 7.11 shall not terminate or be deemed released by any party hereto upon a Service Transfer pursuant to Article Eight.  The purchase obligation described in this Section 7.11 is in no way to be satisfied with monies in the Reserve Fund.  Upon Servicer’s payment of the Purchase Price of the Contract, any Event of Termination pursuant to Section 8.01(b) arising as a result of the Servicer’s breach of any of the covenants set forth in Section 5.02, 5.06 or 5.09 with respect to such Contract shall be deemed not to have occurred.

(b)                                 A Service Transfer shall not affect the rights and duties of the parties hereunder (including but not limited to the indemnities of the Servicer)  other than those relating to the management, administration, servicing, custody or collection of the Contracts.

 

Section 8.07.                         Database File.  The Servicer will provide the Successor Servicer with a data file (in a format reasonably acceptable to the Indenture Trustee and the Servicer) containing the database file for each Contract (i) as of the Cutoff Date, (ii) thereafter, as of the last day of the preceding Due Period on each Determination Date prior to a Service Transfer, and (iii) on and as of the Business Day before the actual commencement of servicing functions by the Successor Servicer following the occurrence of a Service Transfer.

Section 8.09.                         Responsibilities of the Successor Servicer.  The Successor Servicer will not be responsible for delays attributable to the Servicer’s failure to deliver information, defects in the information supplied by the Servicer or other circumstances beyond the control of the Successor Servicer.

(b)                                 Except as provided in this Agreement, the Servicer shall not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that shall not be incidental to its duties to service the Contracts in accordance with this Agreement, and that in its opinion may cause it to incur any expense or liability; provided, however, that the Servicer may undertake any reasonable action that it may deem necessary or desirable in respect of the Transaction Documents and the rights and duties of the parties to the Transaction Documents and the interests of the Noteholders under the Indenture.  In such event, the legal expenses and costs of such action and any liability resulting therefrom shall be expenses, costs and liabilities of the Servicer and the Servicer will not be entitled to be reimbursed therefor.

No such resignation shall become effective until a successor shall have assumed the responsibilities and rights of the predecessor Servicer in accordance with Section 8.04.

(e)                                  The Servicer shall maintain or cause to be maintained its computer systems so that, from and after the time of transfer under this Agreement of the Contracts, the Servicer’s master computer records (including any backup archives) that shall refer to a Contract indicate clearly the interest of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee in such Contract and that such Contract is owned by the Issuer and has been pledged to the Indenture Trustee.  Indication of the Issuer’s ownership of and the Indenture Trustee’s interest in a Contract shall be deleted from or modified on the Servicer’s computer systems when, and only when, the related Contract shall have been paid in full or reacquired or shall have become a Liquidated Contract or, in the case of the Indenture Trustee’s interest, when the Indenture shall have been discharged.

(f)                                   If at any time the Trust Depositor or the Servicer shall propose to sell, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer any interest in promissory notes and security agreements or retail installment sale contracts to any prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee, the Servicer shall give or cause to be given to such prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee computer tapes, records or print-outs (including any restored from back-up archives) that, if they shall refer in any manner whatsoever to any Contract, shall indicate clearly that such Contract has been transferred and is owned by the Issuer and has been pledged to the Indenture Trustee.

 

(g)                                  The Servicer shall permit the Owner Trustee and its agents, at any time during normal business hours, to inspect, audit and make copies of and abstracts from the Servicer’s records regarding any Contract.

(i)                                     The Servicer shall deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and each Rating Agency, promptly after the execution and delivery of this Agreement and of each amendment hereto, an Opinion of Counsel either (A) stating that, in the opinion of such counsel, all financing statements and continuation statements have been executed and filed that are necessary fully to preserve and protect the interest of the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee and reciting the details of such filings or referring to prior Opinions of Counsel in which such details are given, or (B) stating that, in the opinion of such counsel, no such action shall be necessary to preserve and protect such interest.

Section 11.05.                  Severability of Provisions.  If one or more of the covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions or terms shall be deemed severable from the remaining covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement or of the Notes or the rights of the Holders thereof.

 

Section 11.06.                  Assignment.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but except as provided in Sections 6.03, 8.03, 8.11, and 8.12, this Agreement may not be assigned by the Trust Depositor or the Servicer without the prior written consent of Noteholders aggregating not less than 66-2/3% of each Class.

 

Section 11.07.                  Third Party Beneficiaries.  Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, no third party shall be deemed a third party beneficiary of this Agreement.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Obligors are not third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.

 

Section 11.08.                  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.

 

Section 11.09.                  Headings.  The headings of the various Articles and Sections herein are for convenience of reference only and shall not define or limit any of the terms or provisions hereof.

 

Section 11.10.                  No Bankruptcy Petition; Disclaimer and Subordination.  (a) Each of the Seller, the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer and each Holder (by acceptance of the applicable Securities) covenants and agrees that, prior to the date that is one year and one day after the payment in full of all amounts owing in respect of all outstanding Securities, it will not institute against the Trust Depositor or the Trust, or join any other Person in instituting against the Trust Depositor or the Trust, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings or other similar proceedings under the laws of the United States or any state of the United States.  This Section 11.10 will survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

(b)                                 The Trust acknowledges and agrees that each Certificate represents a beneficial interest in the Trust and Trust Corpus only and the Securities do not represent an interest in any assets of the Trust Depositor (including by virtue of any deficiency claim in respect of obligations not paid or otherwise satisfied from the Trust Corpus and proceeds thereof).  In furtherance of and not in derogation of the foregoing, to the extent that the Trust Depositor enters into other securitization transactions, the Trust acknowledges and agrees that it shall have no right, title or interest in or to any assets (or interests therein), other than the Contracts and other assets included in the Trust Estate, conveyed or purported to be conveyed (whether by way of a sale, capital contribution or by the granting of a Lien) by the Trust Depositor to any Person other than the Trust (the “Other Assets”).

 

To the extent that notwithstanding the agreements contained in this Section, the Trust or any Securityholder, either (i) asserts an interest in or claim to, or benefit from any Other Assets, whether asserted against or through the Trust Depositor or any other Person owned by the Trust Depositor, or (ii) is deemed to have any interest, claim or benefit in or from any Other Assets, whether by operation of law, legal process, pursuant to applicable provisions of insolvency laws or otherwise (including without limitation pursuant to Section 1111(b) of the federal Bankruptcy Code, as amended) and whether deemed asserted against or through the Trust Depositor or any other Person owned by the Trust Depositor, then the Trust and each Securityholder by accepting a Note or Certificate further acknowledges and agrees that

 

49



 

any such interest, claim or benefit in or from the Other Assets is and shall be expressly subordinated to the indefeasible payment in full of all obligations and liabilities of the Trust Depositor which, under the terms of the documents relating to the securitization of the Other Assets, are entitled to be paid from, entitled to the benefits of, or otherwise secured by such Other Assets (whether or not any such entitlement or security interest is legally perfected or otherwise entitled to a priority of distribution under applicable law, including insolvency laws, and whether asserted against the Trust Depositor or any other Person owned by the Trust Depositor) including, without limitation, the payment of post-petition interest on such other obligations and liabilities.  This subordination agreement shall be deemed a subordination agreement within the meaning of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.  Each Securityholder is deemed to have acknowledged and agreed that no adequate remedy at law exists for a breach of this Section 11.10 and that the terms and provisions of this Section 11.10 may be enforced by an action for specific performance.

 

(c)                                  The provisions of this Section 11.10 shall be for the third party benefit of those expressly entitled to rely thereon and shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

Section 11.11.                  Limitation of Liability of Owner Trustee and Indenture Trustee.

 

(a)                                 Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Agreement has been executed by Wilmington Trust, National Association, not in its individual capacity but solely in its capacity as Owner Trustee of the Issuer, and in no event shall Wilmington Trust, National Association in its individual capacity or any beneficial owner of the Issuer have any liability for the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or other obligations of the Issuer hereunder, as to all of which recourse shall be had solely to the assets of the Issuer.  For all purposes of this Agreement, in the performance of any duties or obligations of the Issuer hereunder, the Owner Trustee shall be subject to, and entitled to the benefits of, the terms and provisions of Articles Six, Seven and Eight of the Trust Agreement.

 

(b)                                 Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Agreement has been executed by The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., not in its individual capacity but solely as Indenture Trustee, and in no event shall The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. have any liability for the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or other obligations of the Issuer hereunder or in any of the certificates, notices or agreements delivered pursuant hereto, as to all of which recourse shall be had solely to the assets of the Issuer.

The undersigned certifies that [s]he is [                      ] of Harley-Davidson Customer Funding Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “Trust Depositor”), and that as such is duly authorized to execute and deliver this certificate on behalf of the Trust Depositor in connection with the Sale and Servicing Agreement (the “Agreement”) dated as of January 1, 2015 (the “Effective Date”) by and among the Trust Depositor, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (the “Indenture Trustee”), as Indenture Trustee,  Harley-Davidson Credit Corp. (“Harley-Davidson Credit”), as Servicer, and Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Trust 2015-1 (“Issuer”) (all capitalized terms used herein without definition have the respective meanings set forth in the Agreement), and further certifies as follows:

 

(1)                                 Attached hereto as Exhibit I is a true and correct copy of the Articles of Incorporation of the Trust Depositor, together with all amendments thereto as in effect on the date hereof.

 

(2)                                 There has been no other amendment or other document filed affecting the Articles of Incorporation of the Trust Depositor since May 12, 2000, and no such amendment has been authorized by the Board of Directors or shareholders of the Trust Depositor.

 

(3)                                 Attached hereto as Exhibit II is a Certificate of the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada dated as of a recent date stating that the Trust Depositor is duly incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada and is in good standing.

(6)                                 No event with respect to the Trust Depositor has occurred and is continuing which would constitute an Event of Termination or an event that, with notice or the passage of time or both, would become an Event of Termination under the Agreement.  To the best of my knowledge after reasonable investigation, there has been no material adverse change in the condition, financial or otherwise, or the earnings, business affairs or business prospects of the Trust Depositor, whether or not arising in the ordinary course of business since the respective dates as of which information is given in the Preliminary Prospectus (as defined in the Underwriting Agreement) or the Prospectus and except as set forth therein.

(9)                                 There is no action, investigation or proceeding pending or, to my knowledge, threatened against the Trust Depositor before any court, administrative agency or other tribunal (a) asserting the invalidity of the Program Agreements; (b) seeking to prevent the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by the Program Agreements; or (c) which is likely materially and adversely to affect the Trust Depositor’s performance of its obligations under, or the validity or enforceability of, the Program Agreements.

 

(10)                          No consent, approval, authorization or order of, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental agency or body or state or federal court is required to be obtained by the Trust Depositor for the Trust Depositor’s consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Program Agreements, except such as have been obtained or made and such as may be required under the blue sky laws of any jurisdiction in connection with the issuance of the Certificate.

 

(11)                          The Trust Depositor is not a party to any agreements or instruments evidencing or governing indebtedness for money borrowed or by which the Trust Depositor or its property is bound (other than the Program Agreements).  Neither Harley-Davidson Credit’s transfer and assignment of the Contract Assets to the Trust Depositor, the Trust Depositor’s concurrent transfer and assignment of the Trust Corpus to the Trust, nor the concurrent pledge of the Collateral by the Trust to the Indenture Trustee nor the issuance and sale of the Notes, nor the execution and delivery of the Program Agreements, nor the consummation of any other of the transactions contemplated therein, will violate or conflict with any agreement or instrument to which the Trust Depositor is a party or by which it is otherwise bound.

 

(12)                          In connection with the transfer of Contracts and related collateral contemplated in the Agreement, (a) the Trust Depositor has not made such transfer with actual intent to hinder, delay or defraud any creditor of the Trust Depositor, and (b) the Trust Depositor has not received less than a reasonably equivalent value in exchange for such transfer, is not on the date thereof insolvent (nor will become insolvent as a result thereof), is not engaged (or about to engage) in a business or transaction for which it has unreasonably small capital, and does not intend to incur or believe it will incur debts beyond its ability to pay when matured.

 

(13)                          Each of the agreements and conditions of the Trust Depositor to be performed on or before the Closing Date pursuant to the Program Agreements have been performed in all material respects.

(6)                                 No event with respect to Harley-Davidson Credit has occurred and is continuing which would constitute an Event of Termination or an event that, with notice or the passage of time, would constitute an Event of Termination under the Sale and Servicing Agreement.  To the best of my knowledge after reasonable investigation, there has been no material adverse change in the condition, financial or otherwise, or the earnings, business affairs or business prospects of Harley-Davidson Credit, whether or not arising in the ordinary course of business, since the

[Seller’s Representations and Warranties]

 

(1)                                 Representations and Warranties Regarding Seller.  Seller represents and warrants, as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date, that:

 

(a)                                 Organization and Good Standing.  Seller is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization and has the corporate power to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is currently engaged.  Seller is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the character of the business transacted by it or properties owned or leased by it requires such qualification and in which the failure so to qualify would have a material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets, or condition (financial or otherwise) of Seller or Trust Depositor.

 

(b)                                 Authorization; Binding Obligation.  Seller has the power and authority to make, execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party and all of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party, and has taken all necessary corporate action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party.  This Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of Seller enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as enforcement of such terms may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by the availability of equitable remedies.

 

(c)                                  No Consent Required.  Seller is not required to obtain the consent of any other party or any consent, license, approval or authorization from, or registration or declaration with, any governmental authority, bureau or agency in connection with the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party.

 

(d)                                 No Violations.  Seller’s execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which the Seller is a party will not violate any provision of any existing law or regulation or any order or decree of any court or the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws of Seller, or constitute a material breach of any mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement to which Seller is a party or by which Seller or any of Seller’s properties may be bound.

 

(e)                                  Litigation.  No litigation or administrative proceeding of or before any court, tribunal or governmental body is currently pending, or to the knowledge of Seller threatened, against Seller or any of its properties or with respect to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to which the Seller is a party which, if adversely determined, would in the opinion of Seller have a material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets or condition (financial or other) of Seller or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to which the Seller is a party.

 

(f)                                   State of Incorporation; Name; No Changes.  Seller’s state of incorporation is the State of Nevada.  Seller’s exact legal name is as set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement.  Seller has not changed its name whether by amendment of its Articles of Incorporation, by

 

J-1



 

reorganization or otherwise, and has not changed its state of incorporation within the four months preceding the Closing Date.

 

(g)                                  Solvency.  The Seller, after giving effect to the conveyances made by it hereunder, is Solvent.

 

(2)                                 Representations and Warranties Regarding Each Contract.  Seller represents and warrants as to each Contract as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date, that:

 

(a)                                 List of Contracts.  The information set forth in the List of Contracts is true, complete and correct in all material respects as of the Cutoff Date.

 

(b)                                 Payments.  As of the Cutoff Date, the most recent scheduled payment with respect to any Contract either had been made or was not delinquent for 30 days or more.  To the best of Seller’s knowledge, all payments made on each Contract were made by the respective Obligor or under a debt insurance policy or debt cancellation agreement.

 

(c)                                  No Waivers.  As of the Closing Date, the terms of the Contracts have not been waived, altered or modified in any material respect, except by instruments or documents included in the related Contract File.

 

(d)                                 Binding Obligation.  Each Contract is a legal, valid and binding payment obligation of the Obligor thereunder and is enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by insolvency, bankruptcy, moratorium, reorganization, or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally.

 

(e)                                  No Defenses.  No Contract is subject to any right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury, and the operation of any of the terms of such Contract or the exercise of any right thereunder will not render the Contract unenforceable in whole or in part or subject to any right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury, and no such right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense has been asserted with respect thereto.

 

(f)                                   Insurance.  The Seller, in accordance with its policies and procedures, has determined that, as of the date of origination of each Contract, the related Obligor had obtained or agreed to obtain physical damage insurance covering the Motorcycle.  The terms of each Contract require that for the term of such Contract the Motorcycle securing such Contract will be covered by physical damage insurance.

 

(g)                                  Origination.  Each Contract (i) was originated by a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer or by Eaglemark Savings Bank, in each case, in the regular course of its business, (ii) was fully and properly executed by the parties thereto, and (iii) has been purchased by Seller in the regular course of its business.  Each Contract was sold by Eaglemark Savings Bank or such motorcycle dealer, as the case may be, to the Seller without any fraud or misrepresentation on the part of Eaglemark Savings Bank or, to the knowledge of the Seller, such motorcycle dealer.

 

(h)                                 Lawful Assignment.  No Contract was originated in or is subject to the laws of any jurisdiction whose laws would make the sale, transfer and assignment of the Contract under

 

J-2



 

the Transfer and Sale Agreement or under the Sale and Servicing Agreement or the pledge of the Contract under the Indenture unlawful, void or voidable.

 

(i)                                     Compliance with Law.  None of the Contracts, the origination of the Contracts by Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealers or Eaglemark Savings Bank, the purchase of the Contracts by the Seller, the sale of the Contracts by the Seller to the Trust Depositor or the transfer of the Contracts by the Trust Depositor to the Trust, or any combination of the foregoing, violated at the time of origination or as of the Closing Date, as applicable, in any material respect any requirement of any federal, state or local law and regulations thereunder, including, without limitation, usury, truth in lending, motor vehicle installment loan and equal credit opportunity laws, applicable to the Contracts and the sale of Motorcycles.

 

(j)                                    Contract in Force.  As of the Closing Date, no Contract has been satisfied or subordinated in whole or in part or rescinded, and the related Motorcycle securing any Contract has not been released from the lien of the Contract in whole or in part.

 

(k)                                 Valid Security Interest.  Each Contract creates a valid, subsisting and enforceable security interest in favor of Seller or Eaglemark Savings Bank (as the case may be) in the Motorcycle covered thereby, and such security interest has been validly assigned by Eaglemark Savings Bank to Seller (where applicable) and by Seller to the Trust Depositor.  Seller’s security interest has been validly assigned by the Seller to the Trust Depositor pursuant to this Agreement and by the Trust Depositor to the Issuer pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement.  Immediately prior to the transfer, assignment and conveyance thereof, each Contract is secured by a first priority, validly perfected security interest in the Motorcycle covered thereby in favor of the Seller or Eaglemark Savings Bank as secured party or all necessary and appropriate actions have been commenced that would result in a first priority, validly perfected security interest in the Motorcycle covered thereby in favor of the Seller or Eaglemark Savings Bank as secured party, except, in each case, as to priority for any Permitted Liens.

 

(l)                                     Good Title.  Each Contract was purchased by Seller for value and taken into possession prior to the Cutoff Date in the ordinary course of its business, without knowledge that the Contract was subject to a security interest.  No Contract has been sold, assigned or pledged by Seller to any person other than Trust Depositor and the Issuer as the transferee of Trust Depositor, and prior to the transfer of the Contract to Trust Depositor, Seller had good and marketable title to each Contract free and clear of any encumbrance, equity, loan, pledge, charge, claim or security interest, except for any Permitted Liens, and was the sole owner thereof and had full right to transfer the Contract to Trust Depositor, and, immediately upon the transfer of each Contract by the Seller, the Trust Depositor shall have good and marketable title to each Contract free and clear of any encumbrance, equity, loan, pledge, charge, claim or security interest, and, immediately upon the transfer of each Contract by the Trust Depositor, the Issuer shall have good and marketable title to each Contract free and clear of any encumbrance, equity, loan, pledge, charge, claim or security interest, other than the liens created by the Indenture and any Permitted Liens.

 

(m)                             No Defaults.  As of the Cutoff Date, to the Seller’s actual knowledge no default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration existed with respect to any Contract and no event had occurred which, with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute such a default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration under such Contract.  Seller has not waived any such default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration.  As of the Cutoff Date, no Motorcycle had been repossessed.

 

J-3



 

(n)                                 No Liens.  As of the Closing Date there are, to the best of Seller’s knowledge, no liens or claims which have been filed for work, labor or materials affecting the Motorcycle securing any Contract which are liens prior to, or equal with, the lien of the Indenture on such Contract, except for any Permitted Liens.

 

(o)                                 Installments.  Each Contract has a fixed Contract Rate and provides for monthly payments of principal and interest which, if timely made, would fully amortize the loan on a simple-interest basis over its term.

 

(p)                                 Enforceability.  Each Contract contains customary and enforceable provisions such as to render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the realization against the collateral of the benefits of the security.

 

(q)                                 One Original; Owner of Record.  Each Contract is evidenced by only one original executed tangible record constituting or forming a part of each Contract that is “tangible chattel paper”, or a single “authoritative copy” of each electronic record constituting or forming a part of each Contract that is “electronic chattel paper”, which tangible record or “authoritative copy” is held (or, in the case of “electronic chattel paper”, maintained) by the Servicer or its designee, as custodian on behalf of the Issuer (terms in quotation marks have the meaning assigned to them in the UCC).  The Seller is identified as the “owner of record” on all electronic chattel paper, and the Seller has “control,” as defined in Section 9-105 of the UCC, of all electronic chattel paper. The Contracts do not have any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged, assigned or otherwise conveyed by the Seller to any Person other than the Trust Depositor.  All financing statements filed or to be filed against the Seller in favor of the Trust Depositor in connection herewith describing the Contracts contain a statement to the following effect: “A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement, except as provided in the Sale and Servicing Agreement, will violate the rights of the Trust Depositor.”

 

(r)                                    No Government Obligors.  No Obligor is the United States government or an agency, authority, instrumentality or other political subdivision of the United States government.

 

(s)                                   Lockbox Bank.  All Obligors have been instructed to make payments to a Lockbox Account (either directly by remitting payments to a Lockbox, or indirectly by making payments through direct debit, the telephone or the internet to an account of the Servicer which payments will be subsequently transferred from such account to one or more Lockbox Banks), and no person claiming through or under Seller has any claim or interest in a Lockbox Account other than the related Lockbox Bank; provided, however, that other Persons may have an interest in certain other collections therein not related to the Contracts.

 

(t)                                    Obligor Bankruptcy.  At the Cutoff Date, no Obligor was the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, according to the records of the Seller.

 

(u)                                 Chattel Paper.  Each Contract constitutes “tangible chattel paper” or “electronic chattel paper” within the meaning of the UCC.

 

(v)                                 Contract Not Assumable.  No Contract is assumable by another Person in a manner which would release the Obligor thereof from such Obligor’s obligations to the Trust Depositor with respect to such Contract.

 

J-4



 

(w)                               Selection Criteria.  Each Contract is secured by a new or used Motorcycle.  No Contract has a Contract Rate less than 1.00%.  Each Contract amortizes the amount financed over an original term no greater than 84 months (excluding periods of deferral of first payment).  Each Contract has a Principal Balance of at least $500.00 as of the Cutoff Date.

 

(3)                                 Representations and Warranties Regarding the Contracts in the Aggregate.  Seller represents and warrants, as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date, that:

 

(a)                                 Amounts.  The Pool Balance as of the Cutoff Date equals or exceeds the aggregate principal amount of the Notes on the Closing Date.

(c)                                  Marking Records.  As of the Closing Date, Seller has caused the Computer File relating to the Contracts sold hereunder and concurrently reconveyed by Trust Depositor to the Trust and pledged by the Trust to the Indenture Trustee to be clearly and unambiguously marked to indicate that such Contracts constitute part of the Trust Corpus, are owned by the Trust and constitute security for the Notes.

(e)                                  True Sale.  The transactions contemplated by this Transfer and Sale Agreement and the Sale and Servicing Agreement constitute valid sales, transfers and assignments from Seller to Trust Depositor and from Trust Depositor to the Trust of all of Seller’s right, title and interest in the Contract Assets as of the Closing Date.

 

(f)                                   All Filings Made.  All filings (including, without limitation, UCC filings) required to be made by any Person and actions required to be taken or performed by any Person in any jurisdiction to give the Indenture Trustee a first priority perfected security interest (subject only to the liens permitted by the Indenture) in the Contracts, the proceeds thereof and the rest of the Collateral have been made, taken or performed.

 

(4)                                 Representations and Warranties Regarding the Contract Files.  Seller represents and warrants as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date, that:
