Guys I am new to your forum as I am an ADV Rider but my son who rides a streetfighter CBR954RR had a bad crash on the Gateway Highway on 11/11 here in Brisbane, Australia. His bike had only minor damage but my son has ended up a paraplegic. I hope you guys understand my position that I need to fix up his bike and sell it to get him the money to help fund his new lifestyle. So I will be chasing a few spares and finally selling his bike. I certainly don't wish to bring a downer on you guys as I still ride and have had many accidents myself.
If your numbers up your number is up whether you ar riding a bike, riding or horse or any of the other things that can give you a spinal injury. James was a much better rider than me it was just unlucky. Anyway hope you guys will welcome me and let me sort his bike as soon as possible.
Andy

Thanks for your thoughts mate:
I have already replaced the forks / triple clamps and tail fairing but just need a standard rear light, front and rear chain guards and a vapor or acewell speedo to finish the job so I can get it through a roadworthy.
He had it set up as a streetfighter but then would put full fairings on with clip ons for track days.

Ive got a tailight if you want it, Give me a buzz and I'll get your address and post it up. It should still work, its off my first 954 that I pranged. When they removed it they just cut the wires as it was hanging out, but they'll join up OK if you want it.

I think he is thinking more along the lines of a Raptor quad but we will see how he goes. He is after a red wheel chair so I think he still has Honda blood in his veins.

Great to see he is planning ahead already, there are a number of choices over here, right down to a B.M.W. trike you can just push the wheel chair into and ride off, no help needed, and really look way cool too...
