Excellent use of Facts and Data!"Same with "sleep deprivation." Where's the danger if you're alert? You don't need eight hours of sleep at your regular time to stay awake and alert, particularly on a 24 hour ride."
I fugured you would say that. Taken from Wiki:
According to a 2000 study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers in Australia and New Zealand reported that sleep deprivation can have some of the same hazardous effects as being drunk. People who drove after being awake for 17-19 hours performed worse than those with a blood alcohol level of .05 percent, which is the legal limit for drunk driving in most western European countries (the U.S. and UK set their blood alcohol limits at .08 percent). In addition, as a result of continuous muscular activity without proper rest time, effects such as cramping are much more frequent in sleep-deprived individuals.
Your words, my truth.
You know, I feel like a complete idiot and never really thought about doing that. I haven't been riding a long time. You made all made some really good points about people with unbelievable handicaps that are still riding. It may be awhile before I can afford to get a bike with altered controls etc. But I will not give up hope. Thank you for the stern and very hopeful comment. I really needed that as you could tell. It is easy to listen to the doctors and get upset right away. I really needed to grasp everything and think about it all before I just threw my hands up and walked away. Thank you all very much. You are right.So, move your dam ned controls so the good wrist does the work. If Mick Doohan can race and win with a crap body, you can ride too.
LOL.....I actually was enjoying the conversations. I am not just here to sell my bike. I am sure it looks that way and I didn't mean for it to.So, "aipupper24" has got to be wondering what the **** is going on here! "I just wanted to sell my damn bike!"
Oh yeah, "sachiwilson" I am actually a she....lol. aj are my initials. I am not offended just an FYI, I thought it was hilarious. I will have to say no to the offer of sharing....lol...too much fun for me there! J/KI'll share some of my bag of cocaine with him. He won't care much after that.
OR, you could move it all to the left handlebar like my friend Brett Cole has done:Heck, all this tomfoolery; I've forgotten what AJs problem was.
Farked up right wrist?
Easy day. You will probably remain able to work the throttle grip, but the front brake will be problematic. If you cannot operate the throttle grip, you may be able to rig a thumb-operated throttle, such as those found on snowmobiles, personal watercraft and ATVs.
Check into a linked braking system. It may cost a bit to have one fabricated, but if you find someone handy, they may be able to modify a system from a "donor" bike. Then you will operate both front and rear brakes from the foot brake. Even easier, have the foot brake operate the front brakes only. They are the bigger stopping force anyhow.
As my late Father-In-Law would say, "It ain't no hill for a stepper!"
