    Quad riding hurting balls

    Im a complete T6 para and get into quad riding and tend to go pretty hard. I have a Raptor 700 and use a klictronic solenoid shifer for the gears.

    Got some pics up of me riding here -> www.10fx.com

    Anyways due to my position on the bike and constant sliding side to side on the seat without being able to lift my weight with my legs my balls seem to get a bit hammered.

    Anyone else on here ride a quad like a mad man? do you get this problem? Any ideas?

    I want have kids in the near future so im a bit worried about the damage this might be doing.

    Know i probaly just should stop riding but i love riding too much!!

    those pics. are way cool... esp. the one of you flat on your back...oops, too much throttle... very scenic at the dunes. i use to have a sandrail that was street legal being we have no dunes in Atlanta...

    try a piece of foam padding that you snug your jewels up against. if you are rashing on your inner thighs, try a pair of silk bicycle shorts.. keep some baby powder handy too..

    Kerr Douglass on here rides. maybe pm him for ideas...

      I ride a quad but not like a mad man. I got a little crazy a couple of years back, slid off the seat and broke my femur. Haven't been able to figure out how to keep from sliding off yet.

            I know someone who rode quads like mad and made balls hurt but that's a whole other story.

                I recommend taking your seat cover to an upohlstery shop and have them sew some velcro onto it. Then have them make you a sort of diaper (for lack of a better description) with the receiving velcro sewn on the bottom and a seat belt type of fastener that'll enable you to attach it to your ass. This will keep you on the bike but enable you to come off should you strike something heavey or roll it. It will also keep you centered and prevent you from sliding around on the seat and mashing ole Ted and the Twins...

                        Ha, that's what I thought when I first read it too.

                          Haha... Knew some dirty mind would take this the wrong way

                          Thanks for the comments all!

                          The bike shorts are a good idea, gonna sew in some padding and if there tight hopefully i can tuck the jewels away from danger. A Gel seat also sounds good but i'll try the easy option first.

                          The velcro thing is no good cause i need to slide around on the seat to transfer my weight for corners. dont have too much of a problem sliding off the seat.

                          Abrooks - One thing i really miss from MX is jumping, unfortunatly without legs getting air is very difficult, i can do small pethetic jumps but anything bigger and i get pitched over the bars, also landing from anything bigger without having leg or stomach muscles to cushion the impact winds you pretty bad so adjusting in the air is no big issue.

                          Still trying to think of the best way to hook up a rear brake on the handlebars but things are pretty busy up there already with clutch, throttle gears and front brake so its going to be difficult. A rear brake would be great especially for wheelies but for now i just have to be carefull no to go to far.

                          Ricandshe - Not sure what injury level you are but I had the same problem when i first got back on a quad after my accident, i felt so awekward and unstable and thought to my self this is never going to work. If you stick with it you tend to build the required muscles and learn a whole new way to balencing. 8 years ago I never would have dreamed id be doing the things i am today. I can actually out run most of my able bodied mates on a twisty flat track! Bumps are a different story though.

                              Check out the Jay Protector cushion:



                              Protector Adult is the superlight bath/car cushion with body attaching sling which protects against pressure sores when you leave your chair. Protector Adult means added flexibility. Easy on-off with snap buckles to clip on waistband and leg straps."

                              Dunno if this would work or not, but you strap it onto your body vs. having a custom seat. $175 from Sportaid; I'd be inclined to try padded bike shorts 1st, but here's the link:
