[blindza] Re: Fw: Radio SAFM interview on riding

Ha ha, I like the idea of parking a bike/side car combo, and then walking with 
your cane into the shopping centre, can imagine the comments.

I used to go 4x4 trips with a friend, and he would let me drive the 4x4 through 
some challenging obstacles, but he was a good navigator, and then he would make 
me park it, get out, and walk around the car with the cane.

  Well, I have a sidecar here in my garage, and still just need to find the 
right bike to fit it to, and the idea (part of it anyway) is that I might be 
able to persuade some sighted person to sit in the side car and direct me while 
I ride the bike - although it's not quite the same.

  Otherwise, always say at some stage, similar to how I get instructed when 
riding on the pit area of Phakisa, I want to wait until a busyish - but not too 
busy - time at a day jol, and ride into the parking area myself, park the bike, 
climb off, take my helmet off, pull out cane from inside my jacket, and walk up 
to entrance fee table - all of this just to hear the comments etc....LOL!

  Lastly, how does that one song go:
  ...open your eyes, and see me...

  We can break their assumption barriers, but we need to make sure we make a 
good impression (mental impression, not a physical one <smile>)

  Have also already had at least one guy come up to me while was dancing on 
main dance floor in front of band on stage at a bike rally, and tell me I just 
made him feel 'stupid' about ever having worried about having only one eye.

  Like always say, my one friend's saying is:
  live with it, deal with it

  Just that some of us swap it around a bit:
  deal with it, so you can live with it...

  Stay well

    Thanks Jacob, appreciated.
    I tend to brag a bit or sound a bit too confident at times, but then I love 
my horse and what he does for me, I feel he's worth bragging about.  But ja the 
idea is to make sighted public aware of the various activities blind people can 
do, especially if those activities are thought not to be blind friendly at all.

    Ps:  When are we going to start a Blind Hells Biker group, as long as we 
have a few sighted bikers with extremely loud pipes to follow.

    Thanks / Regards

      Already downloaded and listened to it, and it came out nice - and Carl 
sounds good/confident - good to let sighted people hear about things of this 
nature.

      Stay well

        Hi list, if anyone's interested in hearing my chat on horse riding, on 
the Disability Report last night, I managed to link it via my web site.

        http://carldc.net

        Right-click on the SAFM Interview link and "Save Target AS", it's 5 MB.

        Thanks / Regards
