      WOW! have just spent last half hour reading your story. You and your family are great to have managed to progress so far in such a short while. I wish you all continued success, Love your 'can do ' attitude and feel you and your girlfriend are blessed to have each other.
      Funny enough I overheard on the video of you sitting on the bike someone saying about adapting the bike in someway and i have no doubt you will but what i ask is that you let me know how? as looking to get a beach buggy/quad for my daughter. (age 7)
      If I can help in any way let me know, sonia.

          Hi noirin's mum

          Last year I repaired a cute little 49 cc Polaris Predator automatic kids quad for my friends little son
          The best part is that there is a easily adjustable Govenor on the Throttle lever so you can set the rpm's for a child .
          As the child gets better the parent can re adjust the Govenor and make the machine go faster .
          These little ATV's Quads are nice starters but it depends on how big a child is

          Good luck
          GL

            Great story! Thanks for sharing it with everyone! Glad you are doing well. My daughter is a C6/C7 and did not do as well during rehab. Her recovery has taken a lot longer. It is great to see your positive attitude!

                  thanks everyone.
                  noirins mum - for a 7 year old the nice thing is a kids quad will be automatic so you want have to worry about the clutch or electric shifters. and im pretty sure most 50 and 90cc quads have a hand brake. so the only thing you should have to consider changing is the foot pegs and the seat to make sure it is safe.

                  i moved on from the idea of adapting my ltr450 race quad. my dad took me for a ride on it on easter and that left me with alot of mixed feelings and i think i would rather keep my memories of being a pro-am quad racer and try something new such as a side by side like a polaris rzr. i can still race and be competitive while being strapped in by a 5 point harness and a roll cage and drive it with hand controls. but that wont be for awhile down the road until my neck is healed and strong enough to handle it. for now i recently got into remote control cars/trucks and plan on racing them soon. kayla, my dad, and my brother also got them and we have a blast racing eachother everyday.
