props for continuing to ride.

I ran into a guy a few summers ago with a rat bike that had Suciside shift because he had only 1 leg. the prosthetic was good enough for him not to need extra wheels but he needed a way to shift..

I saw someone actually roadrace with one arm. His prosthesis snapped into a fitting on the bar end and he worked everything with his right hand.

that's awesome!

I met an older couple at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground. They were riding a trike and had one of those little pop up campers to pull behind it. They surprised me when they packed up and left - she was driving and he was riding pillion.



never give up!

My applause to this rider, he is obviously very competent.

As to the comment about "hanging off";
1. He's on a track.
2. It's only a good comparison if he runs some laps without "hanging off" and tracks the lap times.

Just sayin...
