Just so good

This is just so good on so many levels. A company called Motopodd built a sidecar outfit to allow a wheelchair user to be taken out for runs.

Not only has this transformed a young man's life and let him take part in something previously impossible, but it also shows a healthy 'can do' attitude so lacking in current society. Rather than say 'you can't do that', the builders have taken up the challenge and said 'how CAN we do this?'
Good to see there's still innovative thinking going on, and isn't the quality of the engineering superb?
Lots of nice outfits at the start of the video to keep mr. combo happy, I particularly like the old green one that looks like the front of a boat!

  1. Nice outfits, but then again I would say that. However, that was a really cool thing to do for someone confined to a wheelchair, and his father.

    NABD (http://www.nabd.org.uk/)offer grants to do this sort of thing for downed bikers. A particularly worthy cause, as you never know when you might need something like this yourself.
