Hi, not sure if i qualify as I'm not as yet a rider. I amhowever disabled and fully intend to become a rider.
In 1999 I had a motorcycle accident, it was a reasonable event, the policeclosed the road for 8 hours whilst I was recovered and they did their thing!Anyway the accident left me unconscious for three weeks and in hospital for 4months, my right leg remained broken below the knee for 14 months and in theend I had to have a bone graft to rectify the problem. Both forearms were brokenmy right forearm also had nerve damage resulting in a further op to allow me toopen my hand via tendon transfer. My left forearm and elbow were broken leavingme to this day unable to straighten my left arm fully. The main damage thoughwas to my left leg, the sciatic nerve was ripped away from the spine at all 5sockets leaving me with non function left buttock, rear thigh muscle waist and completelyparalyzed below the knee.
I sat at home watching the Paralympics and felt ashamed of myself, " I really must get off my a*se" and have been looking for a reasonable tricycle to buy since, there are plenty of the Mission, Viking and Kentex style trikes but I live in Southern Spain where there are one or two mountains and these "shopper" style trikes just will not cut it around here.
Any thoughts would be welcome.
Thanks and "Hi" to all here.
