Stewart Goddard (spelling/i think) he was racing and to avoid another rider crashed again re-breaking his back...not good for someone who already is para because healing process is really tough but I think he is doing well.

Tifosi, I saw a fellow who had a RC-51 equipped the same way at a NESBA track day at VIR a couple years ago. Might be the same guy. And yes, he was pretty fast.
That might be him, I remember being extremely impressed with his riding...
LDH is right that was me (Bill Riviello) at the Rouge event, I?ve only missed the first one. I had an RC51 which I rode on the street and did tracks days with and I now have a GSXR600 that I only use for track days.
To make a long story short I was in a motorcycle accident on the street on 9/97 and broke my back which left me paralyzed. A year or so after my accident I read in Sport Rider magazine of a guy in CA. who rode a CBR900 (same bike I had my accident on) that was paralyzed. I emailed him and ended up buying his bike....that was Stewart Goddard. Since then I?ve sold the CBR and I had a local guy copy and improve what Stew had done on the CBR and that's about it.
The bike is fairly simple....I use a translogic push button electric shifter, no rear brake and never wished I had one, foot pads instead of pegs to Velcro my feet in place and the outrigger works with a toggle switch and an electric screw motor.
Thanks for taking interest and maybe I?ll see you at a VIR track day sometime.
There was a guy here with a similar set-up on his R1. It had a hydraulic arm/wheel on the side of the bike, that could be deployed at the push of a button, everytime he came to a stop. Looked pretty neat!
Whatever happened to the guy who was racing 125's in Cali, paralyzed from the waist down? He was allowed to start from the last row with a friend holding the bike, is he still racing?
No he got hurt in a race at Laguna a few years back when a rider fell in front of him and he couldn't advoid it. He's been back to normal and the last time i talked to him his parents were pushing him not to race so he was putting together a R6 for the street. (Stewart Goddard)
