IN last week’s Video Vednesday, I shared the story of a guy who rides motorcycles and is paralyzed from the chest down. I loved his attitude towards life, loved the way he made fun of everything that’s wrong with him. I also shared my own tiny little set of problems that I fight everyday to keep doing what I’m doing, but holy mother of flying fucks, today’s video is just maddeningly insane.
Alan Kempster races with the number 1/2
This is an old video, from about 3 years ago. Even though I like to think of myself as a serious biker, it always surprises me to see how little I know about the universe of motorcycling. I have literally been bombarded with suggestions to see this story, and the moment I did I knew this shit was going right on my website. Here it is!
Crazy, isn’t it? I can’t even begin to imagine how somebody controls a motorcycle with a single hand, that too at race pace! Alan is a badass motherfucker, no scratch that, he’s the mayor of the city of badass motherfuckers. If anybody needs any more proof that problems are all psychological, they can just go ahead and die.
