What an inspiration... A sidecar & a BIG heart!
« on: February 01, 2014, 11:07:29 am »
Sean, a close friend of this man, told me about this amazing guy... his name is Dale Collett from Botswana. Paralyzed from the sternum down he is planning to ride down like this from Gaberone to Cape Town in April with his imported Chinese sidecar.

You can read more about him on his website at  www.dalecollett.co.bw

GO YOU GOOD THING!!!  :ricky:

Language needs some new words of admiration. The old ones just don't suffice.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

Wow, that will be an interesting one to follow
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.
