Ability Motorcycles website was created to enable the sharing of information and projects to benefit others. The focus of the website is to provide information related to motorcycles to improve access for people with disabilities.
To assist people with physical or intellectual limitations achieve the goal and enjoyment of riding a motorcycle, either as a passenger or rider, which will improve both accessibility and freedom.
Having helped many people learn to ride a motorcycle and obtain a license as a Motorcycle Instructor, it is in my nature to assist people achieve their goals.
Being also a passionate motorcycle rider and father of a daughter with a disability, and having a wife that also loves to ride, it was necessary to modify a motorcycle to enable us to ride as a family.
As is the case with many wheelchair bound persons, our daughter must remain in her wheelchair, due to it having been specially modified for her disability and comfort. This took us on a journey as we searched for the best option to achieve our goal. We discovered either a lack of information on this subject or difficult to find if you don’t know where to look.
Therefore, I decided to create a website to share our experiences and gathered knowledge to assist others on their journey.
Along the way we have discovered the many options for persons with a disability, either permanent or temporary.
A disability may be any of the following: Arthritis, Amputee, Wheelchair Bound, Knee or Hip Operation, Intellectual Limitation and many other reasons to restrict riding a motorcycle.
There are many adaptions/modifications that can improve access for such people. Some examples are Electric Gear Shifters, Dual Brakes, Outrigger Stabilizer Bars, Clutchless Shift Systems, Sidecars, Trikes and many other options.
Our purpose is to share this information in one location to assist others with motorcycle accessibility. The sister website Haul N Ride explores interesting, rare and unusual motorcycles.
If you don’t have sufficient funds to build your project or due to work commitments have limited time to ride your motorbike, would an extra paycheck each month help you?
All the best,
