Some engineering students at the University of Minnesota have come up with a concept that gives paraplegics the opportunity to ride a motorcycle. The bike is fitted with landing wheels, when the motorcycle comes to a stop the stabilizing wheels will drop. Tim Bettger, one of the members from “Team Motorcycle”, explains how the the concept works in the demonstration video, Bettger happens to be a disabled rider himself.
The bike will be shipped to Calgary, Alberta, and give Scott Tyson the opportunity to fulfill his dream of riding through the Rockies on a motorcycle. Tyson lost the use of his legs 16 years ago in a motorcycle accident.
