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.
