It is not my objective to write a novel, my passion was for a long time motorcycles races. You know that this is not without risks. I did one with a disabled biker. I found it particularly moving when I saw him who after an accident lives out his passion.
Later, I have continuing racing in my club. I had an accident and was in the process of recovery in a convalescent home.
Handyman, I told myself that nothing is impossible!
I then decided to work on my snowmobiles. My objective was to get them accessible. Some of them have the controlled moved for people with only one arm. Others, for a paraplegic have a retrofitting a special chair with a back and an attachment for the feet.
Each snowmobile is tweaked to cater for different motor disabilities, ranging from paraplegias and hemiplegia to amputation. If you have a doubt about your disability, if it is possible, I will find the correct modifications in order to allow you to experience this dream.
