Laughing Laughing Thats exactly the type of thinking that is common to all bikers, brilliant reason to buy a bike! I am going to look out for a cheap RC30 mug... Best of wishes to the misses, at least the end prognosis sounds promising. Now, how we can we trick the wheelchair Shocked

This if how I justified buying my Harley. On my 25th birthday my mother gave me a black leather jacket. I kind of jokingly told her I had to buy the motorcycle to go with the jacket. About a week and a half later, I bought my Harley. Razz

Now, if I can only get that Ferrari to go with the T-shirt I've had for years.

For the wheelchair, Vicki said that if Computrack can't straighten the frame of the R1, we can slap the wiring harness and engine onto the wheelchair. I'll have to get my buddy to lend me his welder. Ah....a 140 HP wheelchair would be SWEET!!!! Twisted Evil

What do you call those extensions out of the back of drag bikes to stop wheelies? You'll need them and upgrade the brakes and perhaps a parachute out of the back to?

"Wheelie Bars"

The wheelchair already has them to prevent it from tipping over, but I don't think they are strong enough to handle the torque and HP of a liter bike engine. Twisted Evil

You are correct, though. I think a parachute will be mandatory, as the little hand brakes will be useless.....her hands will be too busy trying to keep her arse in the seat!

Edit - I told Vicki what we are planning, and she says she won't have to hold on because we'll install a 5-point safety harness system for her. Laughing

I'd be afraid that it would expand and warp due to the ethanol in our fuels. Shocked Laughing Laughing
