Double Amputee Motorcyclist Still Racing Motorcycles.


We all like to complain about being sore or injured when riding motorcycles.

Well l have just discovered this really cool Aussie bloke, meet Alan Kempster.

Alan was out for a riding one day when a truck driven by a drunk driver hit him on his motorcycle.  Alan lost his right arm and leg in the accident.  Most people would have give up extreme sports or sports all together.  Alan instead of feeling sorry for himself decided to take up water skiing.


Alan then decided he wants to return to motorcycles and ride again.  Alan rigged up a Left Hand throttle, brake, and clutch configuration.   He racing now in Formula 400 with race number is 1/2 fitting to his situation.

Alan Kempster is a truly inspirational person by returning to motorcycles and what most people would say is impossible.  Well we take our hat off to Alan and his determiniation.
