    They do make outriggers for motorcycles. They extend at stops and have rollerblade wheels on them. I believe BMW may even make them for their own bikes.

      In the past I have seen a Goldwing with something like that...but cant find any info on something like this. Do you know someplace on the net for more info on this?

        gpbullock,

        Not outriggers but sidecars. I met a guy two summers ago who was a T2 para and riding a Harley Davidson sidecar motorcycle. Stowed his chair in the sidecar.

        Needless to say I was blown away when I saw him get on and take off - without a helmet no doubt!

        There's a place in Ft. Collins CO that does the mods (hand controls, etc) for about $20k I'm told.

        I'll try and find/post more info if I can find it.

        Nothing's impossible if you want it bad enough.

          Link

          Chris and Vicki, here is a link for an example of the outriggers I was talking about. I have seen a production model on another motorcycle but can't remember the manufacturer. Here is the article that I found where a para uses a set of "homemade" outriggers.http://www.accessibility.com.au/news...es/goddard.htm

                  gpbullock, that is exactly what I was thinking of, I saw a photo of that on an RC-51 a couple of months back and was wondering just where the guy got it. Thanks a bunch! Only thing is...Vicki says NO (I am Andy using her log in)...need to work on this a little bit [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                    The March issue of Sports 'N Spokes have an article about the custom wheelchair outriggers that Louis Irvin has on his hog....he also has a rack on the back for carrying his manual chair with him when riding.

                          Andrew, from what I've heard there are quite a few (every year?) rugby players who sustain an sci injury?

                          And doesn't the rugby union have some monies set aside if a player gets hurt?

                          I could be totally off base but I thought that's what I've heard / read???

                            This is the doctor who operated on me in 1978 to correct my scoliosis. I was 14 at the time. The operation left me a T-4 incomplete paraplegic. Never learned for certain exactly what went wrong.

                                I guess this doctor is OFF the Christmas card list.
