Heh. Handicap plates and stickers are so easy to get these days. It's a farce....
I have seen vets who are amputees ride with modified controls.
Perhaps the rider is blind?
Craig M. is correct. It is a lot easier to ride on a leg and a half then to walk.Not from personal experience, but have seen this at the local V.A. hospital.
Got a buddy with a hook, rides all the time.
That all makes sense, except for the blind bit. I had just never seen that before.
Why that's all fine and good and I too know of an amputee who had his bike modified after he lost a leg I question the need for handicapped plates. These parking spots were put in place for wheelchair lift vehicles that required extra room to let their passengers out. The privilege is abused these days by many who truly do not need them.Just my opinion.
My buddy with a hook and your buddy who lost his leg earned that right, my buddy in Vietnam.
Have you ever heard of the VETERAN BIKERS M/C? How about the GREEN KNIGHTS MILITARY MOTORCYCLE CLUB? I am a disabled Veteran and I ride.
I can't walk for shit and will never run again-don't have a lot of fun with life, a shattered spine will do that. But I have a bike and it's freedom among other things. Live to ride, ride to live.BTW fuck you if you don't like it, try living in constant pain-betcha can't handle it, sure as hell is no farce.Adam Lannongreenman227
You can drop the attitude. I never said I had a problem with it, I just wanted an explanation... which I got.
Negative-YOUR HOUSEMy response was to pioneer preppy and his attitude. I did not make that clear.My Apologies Sir.I have been told to my face recently that anyone on any benefit should be shot, literally. By some in the 3 'community'.Anyone who thinks being injured or crippled is a farce or some boondoggle ought to try it sometime.I can't let that insult pass, especially to the veterans, no I'm not.Gets me hot as hell.Again, I'm in the wrong, poor writing.Adam Lannongreenman227
When I worked at a bike shop in Toronto, we built a sled for a guy had one real hand and one plastic, he rode just fine with a left hand twist grip (ex Indian) and coupled brakes working off the foot pedal.
