  1. This vid is pretty damn impressive.

    Guy had a motorcross accident, now he's paralysed from the sternum down. But he's back on a (modified) bike, and his next goal is Baja...


    Definitely worth a look.
  2. There is no picking the bike up mid race if he puts it down...
    But that is dedication.
    Looks like a guy with a really positive attitude.
  3. Wow, what an inspiration this dude is :eek:

    Makes me feel very ashamed whinging about my allergic reaction to a bee sting :oops:
  4. Thanks for the vids

    The first one was inspirational - what an attitude :cool:

    On the chair in the bowl - there was a show on Fox a week or so ago about backflips - Travis Pastrana did a double, some guy did one on a jet ski and this kid did a backflip in his chair - showed plenty of guts, as in training he stacked a heap of times.
  5. i have soooo much respect for that guy! so envious... shows how much he loves bikes :)
