Well the easiest way to picture it is to cut both your legs off above the knee, attach your feet there, and then stand. Makes him about 4.5' tall I think give or take.

That must be a sight to see. Take no offense in me joking about that, I myself am a gimp in a wheelchair.

BDM, here is a pic of a setup a friend of mine's riding buddy rigged up. I am gonna get some more pics and info on it. Pretty cool. Up/down electric shifter and the outrigger setup. The guy is paralyzed from the pecs down, has been for 17yrs from a bike wreck and he just couldn't give up railing....

IMG 3828sm

My buddy said he rips pretty freakin well to but did have some problems with the shifter setup.....Cool though.

The latest issue of 2WheelTuner has a Busa trike conversion, with the 2 wheels on the front. Pretty slick deal...

I've seen those setups before and I have spoken to owners of them. I'd love to ride again but the wife is dead set against it. I don't think she could go through the stress again. But a good thing was heard at the BBQ from her lips. She said that she really liked the karts. She said that we ought to get into that. I was like waaaaaa? When I mentioned it in the past, she was dead set against that too. But , if she'll support that, I'll go for it.

ZXALAN,
Where is your friend with that bike located? I'd like to see it and meet him.

Actually, its my buddy Wayne. He lives in Maryland. Dave is Wayne's friend with the ZX10. Wayne is gonna get me more pics and info on the setup, I will relay it to anyone interested in riding again.

I COMPLETELY understand your wife's opinion on riding again and I can't say I would be willing/able to ride again myself if it happened to me but hopefully, I would have the guts to get back on again. I definetly think playing with hot rod cars is a great option for handicapped speed nut. I know a fella from back in the day, his name is Larry Mcfarland, he has been drag racing cars as long as I can remember. He has also been in a wheelchair(no feeling from waist down) as long as I can remember. All of his cars have ran in the 10s. His current 79 camaro runs 10s with a small block and he has the handicapped handlebar controls. I have always admired him for sticking with something he loves and he has been very competitive through the years.

I just like to reitterate the possibilities out there for enthusiasts that would like to get back into riding who are disadvantaged....

Yeah...I wanted to ride it too. When I go out solo one night, I'll have to get on one. I have a bungy cord to hold my legs together which would be the only issue I can foresee. That and a helmet and jacket. Just to be safe cause there is a good chance I could fall over lol.

Those are TAG carts that you rode. TAG = Touch and Go. They make big ones and small ones. The ones you rode were the small CC ones. They also make shifters which will eat your bike up on a track. The 125CC shifters were running out there earlier in the day and they were moving. They also have a 250cc class! OMG...150mph @ 1" off the ground!

just wait guys. Servos and batteries are the main hangup in many vehicles and home electronics these days. They are quickly catching up though. thus in about 5 years the possibilities of DIY and off-shelf motorcycle conversions and accessibility options will be greatly, greatly improved. I cant wait to see what some people come up with. I have seen one Goldwing on a drive to PA last year with a hydraulic (i think) stand that came down when he stopped.

Mercedes had a motorcycle trike(misspelled?yes) that turns into the corners and has a fully contained passenger compartment. Saw the info on it a year ago but Im assuming its only in developmental stages...
