Yeah. I've still got a clutch but those are power ups. The top 3 pics are from a car race event where the organisers asked me to come out to provide some lunch time entertainment. I wasn't going to do it, but they paid me with a year long pass to the track.

I paralysed my left arm in a bike accident in 1997. I've still got the arm (it fills a sleeve lol) but when I'm on the bike I have it tucked up in my leathers.

Ha cheers. I'm nothing special. Just someone whose life took a turn and who wanted to keep living a normal life and enjoy bikes. I'm from Christchurch, in the South Island of NZ.

Re: Post your Trackday/ Racing pictures

I have a fellow instructor that can't use one of his arms. He wears a special casting that allows him to hook his hand on the bar. All of his controls are on one side and he can ride the hell out of a bike

No need to be sorry, I'm one of the lucky ones. I had a near death experience, and with the pain and loss of use of the arm I'm reminded everyday how lucky I am to be here to enjoy another day. It's a great experience. I'm not saying I prefer it this way, but you make the best out of what life deals you eh.

Awesome. I thought about hooking the arm onto the bars but was worried about what would happen in the event of a crash (arm being ripped off, stretched around my back, my neck and shoulder etc are all very tender areas). I've had two crashes since that accident, one was a 100mph highside at the track and one on the road. Both times me arm have been fine. Ok other than breaking it and my left shoulder in one of them. But I never noticed that lol.

Do you have any ids or photo's of his setup etc?

Yeah Christchurch is a great place to live. Unfortunately the landscape has changed a little recently, we had a 7.1 earthquake 6wks ago, a lot of the old heritage buildings got severely damaged and have to come down. 1500+ aftershocks haven't helped either, ranging from 3 through to over 5. Wish it all would stop. Already had a couple this morning.

Trackclub has a control rider with the same thing and he's fast as hell too.

Thanks. Yeah I had thought about that when I first got back on bikes, but one of main concerns is what happens to the arm after I come off, due to the paralysis the arm doesn't flex as much as normal, nor does the shoulder. I'm concerned that if I do come off and the arm is free it may do further damage so I figure it's best to just trap the arm in the leathers.
