Dale, according to your ealier post you should be in surgery now. I pray that the doctors will bring all their wisdom, experience and gentleness to bear on you as they do what they can to help you heal.

I hope you do get back in the saddle. I have thought about what I would do if I lost the use of my legs and couldn't operate a bike.

I'd get a hack.



Here are some resources that might help.

Disabled Riders of America

National Association for Bikers with a Disability (in the UK - good resource)

Virginia, IIRC, had the first state rider education program to start teaching motorcycle sidecar classes, using the curriculum developed by USCA. Contact this fellow for information:

There isn't a right thing to say, and my prayin' is more than a bit rusty, but I'll dust it off today and say one for you and yours.

Dood,

You're a remarkable person to have such a positive outlook as well as an inspiration to all. I have many sources for motorcycles/trikes/sidecars for the disabled.

You're in our prayers!!

Best wishes to you. I firmly believe that the strongest medicine is a positive attitude, and you seem to have that covered in spades. Wishing you the best of luck in surgery.
