Perfect example of finding a way to accomplish the mission.... :thumbsup: ....regardless of the (perceived) obstacles.
Had an engineering student down this way who had and old Kawasaki police bike fitted with a very special hack. It was built to accommodate him driving from the hack, with him in his wheelchair. :foilhead:

Worth bumping up I thought, if only to compliment the rider on attitude and ingenuity. I face a lot of the same sort of obstacles to a lesser degree, and am hoping to build my way around them.
