Gear fail, but the bike is too cool.

Does that guy have a handicap plate? I didn't even know that was possible for a motorcycle....I wonder what his disability is.

Whatever the disability, it sure isn't hurting his cornering.

Looks like it. Another inmate mentions that his mother rode pillion until recently (don't really know the story on the rider...and he does look very capable on the oldwing). Maybe the plate was for her?

As for handi-cap plating, varies by state, but as I understand it, if you produce a Dr.'s report with the proper documentation, you can get one. My father-in-law had one while he was alive. We could use one for my Mother-in-Law now that she's living with us - she doesn't drive, but we do take her places and we could park closer to entrances.

Plus with the radio as far back as it is, the antenna isn't stuffed up his armpit messing up radio transmission. The shirt is just odd .
No one in this region wears their Taser in that position.

The radio appears to be pushed up against the top box..how comfortable could that be..?

It doesn't have to be a visible handicap either. I used to get bent out of shape seeing someone get out of a car with a handicap tag and look to be fine. Figured they were gaming the system.
A friend's dad has a heart condition and has a tag as he is not supposed to exert himself too much, at least at times. You'd never know it by looking at him.

Same with a fella I knew who had some huge flywheel or something come off a machine, roll over and crush his pelvis and legs. He can walk, sure, but not far. I'm sure he could ride a bike just fine, but it's the parking and walking to the store part that he really can't. He said he'd get bad stares and comments from people who didn't understand. Gotta imagine we are nearly all going to see a few veterans like that soon enough if we are observant enough.
