Handicap And Disable Motorcycle Rider Parts And Accessories The ADA Didn't Even Know About
Freebird Custom Trikes & Motorcycles Takes The Disability Out Of The Ride
With all of the awareness about people with disabilities there is out there in the media, it is very sad and strange that businesses and the disabled community are not aware that there are parts and accessories available for people to get them back on their motorcycles. But there isn’t, more and more people are interested in riding way into their 80’s (when possible) and they just cannot operate a standard motorcycle because of weakness, injuries or whatever the reason. We provide them with the solutions to be able to get back on the road and ride again. With injuries caused by war, for instance, the Veterans group offers to fit out their motorcycle with parts that will allow them to ride again and replaces these parts every 2 to 4 years, even many of the Vets don’t even know this, and insurance companies will pay for motorcycles to be adapted in many cases as well when injuries have been sustained to stop them from riding. We offer parts for paraplegics, amputees, nerve damage, etc and they are calibrated to fit the needs and circumstances of the rider. Recently we have been receiving calls from motorcycle dealerships whose customers are contacting them with our information asking them to put these items onto their bikes for them. So they aren’t even aware such parts were available. If the ADA isn’t even aware this is possible in most cases as we have found out, then we need to make this a public announcement to get the word out there.
There are more than 6,000,000 motorcycles registered in the US, but an exact number of riders are difficult to ascertain, as some riders are passengers. Many people also ride off road bikes, which do not require a license. It is safe to say, there are probably more than 7,000,000 people in the US who jump on a street bike at least once a year. 1 in 5 people have some form of disability in the country as well, consider that at least 1 in 10 has a physical disability and with this many motorcyclists and baby boomers out there, riding a motorcycle with factory equipment, may be very difficult to do.
More motorcyclists are more applicable for these types of products than ever before. There are the wounded vets, disabled vets and paralyzed people these days that are having insurance or other government programs pay for their adaption’s to motorcycles than ever before.
We are the one stop shop for complete coverage of handicap and disabled adaptive parts and accessories for any motorcyclists that have difficulty operating their current motorcycle.
We carry a dual brake, electronic shifter, wheelchair carriers, foot securing systems, floorboard controls, service pet carriers, amputee products even for racing, custom made seats and so much more. All of our products are calibrated or customized to suit the rider’s needs. Contact us if you have a specific issue that we may be able to fabricate a part to assist you.
