Sweet Scoot

Several years ago I was hit by a car and left paralyzed from the waist down. Thanks to some skillful surgeons and a good rehab hospital, I learned to walk again. Yes, it is something that has to be learned. Others haven't been so lucky. They are left to live life in a wheelchair. From first-hand experience, I can honestly state that life in a wheelchair sucks.

This isn't about me though. This is about a new trike in Britain that puts the wind in someones hair. It smacks bugs against the teeth. Most of all, it allows people constrained to a chair the freedom to get down the road.

The Martin Conquest is the answer to many a bikers dream. Alan Martin came up with the idea after his son was injured and stuck in a wheelchair. Though, thank god, his son can walk again, he decided to go ahead with the trike.

This isn't some sissy sized scoot either. It's a 850cc Beemer. This babe can fly. It also isn't just the everyday adaptation that only works half-assed. It is designed from the ground up. It's not the slickest scoot in the world. The Conquest is however pretty cool looking and should more than do the job.

Thank you Alan Martin. Job well done and I for one wish you success.

peace out
