I have a valid class 6, my bikes are fully registered & insured. I ALWAYS ride with full gear & am one of the most courteous riders I know. I never ride like a knob!
I was paralyzed from the chest down in a snowboarding accident in November 2000 & in the end of April 2013 I took my first unassisted steps. In June 2013 I bought myself a 600 GSXR & I haven't looked back!! My Dr's told me I would never walk again & the only riding I would do was in a sidecar. I told them that I WOULD prove them all wrong & ride again, and I have!! I love the freedom & mental escape the ride gives me as well as the awesome friends I've met & kept through riding! I live the Kananaskis ride & adore the roads in BC, especially Hwy 6 from Vernon thru New Denver & down to Ainsworth, Balfour Bay & then across to Crawford Bay, Creston to the Crowsnest Pass & up to Longview & home. I want to ride the PCH from San Diego all the way up they the Oregon coast, BC & then home. And any ride with a good group of friends is a good ride.
I've been riding on my own license since I was 16 & was a die-hard Harley lover until I got on my first crotch rocket & fell in love!
