Bringing the wheelchair along when riding motorcycle

The user attaches his wheelchair to the motorcycle

Description
The user sits sideways on the motorcycle. He places the cushion on the motorcycle in front of him, then he takes the wheelchair's side guard and places them in a bag on the motorcycle. He folds down the wheelchair backrest and attaches it with a strap.
Then he turns the wheelchair over and tips it up onto the foot bar and removes the wheels, one at a time. He leans the wheels against the motorcycle. Then he lifts up the wheelchair and places it upside down on the baggage carrier and attaches it with a strap. Then he picks up the wheelchair wheels and attaches them to the wheelchair again. He places the cushion onto the wheelchair and attaches it.

  1. Sandy Berish:I just got Can Am Spyder and have now reiddn it a total of 5 times. Yes, completely new at this, but did take a Motorcycle Safety Course and then got my license. I am loving this beautiful machine! The only problem I seem to be having is if riding early in the mornings, no problem with engine heat. However, once it has warmed up considerably 90 degrees plus the heat actually burns the inside of my left knee and my right ankle. So today on the way home from work, it was almost unbearable. Is there anything that can be done to divert the heat in a different direction? or possible a recommendation on protective clothing that will not heat up from the engine heat? Any help would be appreciated.Thank you.

  2. I always wear leather chaps when I ride, and even if my leg is directly against the muffler/engine I hardly feel any heat. Best wishes and have fun!
