Amputee soldiers helped back into biking

A charity is helping soldiers who have lost limbs in Afghanistan get back into motorcycling. Suzuki SV650s and Aprilia Manas have been adapted so amputees can ride them on a track. The charity, run by serving soldiers, already offers injured veterans the chance to take part in motorsport. Major James Cameron, Director of Mission Motorsport, said: “We now have a...

the bike experience

My brother is paralysed from the waist down after a bike accident on his TT600 leaving him fighting for his life. thanks to the bike experience (partnered with mission motorsport), created by Talan Skeels-Piggins he's now happily riding it again.

check out their sights:- http://www.tbex.co.uk/  and  https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Bike-Experience/101810996578296

i cant describe to you how overwhelming it was to see my brother dying in the ICU to riding the same bike he crashed on 6 months later. truly amazing, hats off to anyone who helps these remarkable people get back to a sport they truly love.

This article rather puts the bitching on here about other subjects in context. These ladies and gents deserve both our respect and support, which I am happy to provide where possible. The help being given to get them back to biking demonstrates the compassion and will to improve their lot by their comrades. As an ex service person, I find this both humbling and hugely uplifting. There are some good people in this world after all!

To all those who serve or did not make it home - thank you.

To all my friends who are still on patrol - you are not forgotten lads.

I can't help wondering at the futility of war where healthy young men on both sides destroy each others bodies in a mission to grab oil and resourses for the wealthy bankers, politicians & royals who use these young men as tools. I hope these guys recover as much as they can and use their experience to wise up the next generation not to be the pawns of the squires. Great to see them get back on bikes now and start enjoying life again. Perhaps they could consider organizing a bikers anti-war rally.

Proud

As an ex soldier i am proud of all who serve this nation of ours.

And a member of the royal british legion riders branch who raise money to help all exforces personel in thier hour of need ( POPPY APEAL )

Especialy those wounded doing the job they love.

I wish all the people who take part in mission motorsport all the best

Our armed forces are they best in the world, be cause its a volenteer service.

Our armed forces need all our support, as would a bloke with only one arm riding a bike.

Some mistake surely.

@Harry44, many years ago there was a one armed racer in the BMCRC series and he ws quick, so there is no reason why servicemen and women with these types of injuries should not have the same amount of fun.

Respect to all the armed forces and I hope the project goes really well.
