There is no polite method to describe needs we all have, whether we are tall, short, have a leg or arm amputated, eyesight, hearing and many other items that affect all of us. I decided on the word Challenged, because I have a bad back an partial site in one eye. I hope this does not offend anyone, but here are great products which might help you out to ride better if you have a similar situation.
Whoever it was said, "You can't ride anymore?" Don't believe it or accept it...

888-452-2552 www.safetyfeatures.com - Hydraulically operated side-mounted wheels that hold the bike upright at a stop and can be lowered by flipping a switch, and side-mounted wheels that stabilize the motorcycle but still allow it to lean:
This may be the most unique accessory you have ever seen for your Touring Bike. Imagine the ability to steady your bike as you come to a stop, have it held upright at a light or stop sign with your feet on the pegs (you really should put them down, but you don't have to!!), then have the support automatically retract as you accelerate
The Patent-pending Leg Up system was created for those who for whatever reason are concerned about, or unable to hold up these 850 lb monsters as they come to a stop. New riders, bad knees, bad hips, bad passengers (couldn't resist!), or any other reason someone might want a little help keeping the rubber side down... This will do it!
The system was originally designed for 1998 thru 2008 Harley touring bikes. Recently it has been adapted to the new 2009 and 2010 Harleys. GL1800 Gold Wing's were the next bikes added to the list of available models. If you own an 87 or later Harley, see the NEWS tab above to learn how you can install LegUp on Your bikes as well!

Trike kits customized for disabled riders
The custom kits from Trigg Trike Kits can accommodate a variety of disabled riders, including quadriplegics, paraplegics, amputees, and riders with mechanical hearts. "We believe where there's a will, there's a way," said LaNell Bell, who owns Trigg Trike Kits with her husband, David.
The company has designed kits that can hold oxygen tanks and folded and unfolded wheelchairs. Perhaps the most notable feature of these kits is that they can be attached to almost any stock motorcycle without altering it, thus ensuring the bike's value without restricting resale options.
We now have a kit for Harley-Davidson and many other manufacturers of motorcycles for all us individuals in wheelchairs, as well as electric wheelchairs and any others with physical needs that want, like, and need to ride a motorcycle. I am in an electric wheelchair, but I can transfer onto the motorcycle's seat. I am in the electric wheelchair from Polio; long before the advent of so many handicapped aids. I have designed many items for my own needs and it's time to share my skills and experience in a design that works.
CHRISTRIKES has so many parts that make riding so very easy for people with disabilities. First, the kit: This unit has full limited-slip differential and independent suspension. The best thing for us is that the floor moves up and down. Yes, you roll in at three inches off the ground. Throw a switch, and you go up until you are sitting just above, and in back of the motorcycle's seat. You slide down and transfer on to the motorcycle and you are on the road again.
I have designed the kit, and will manufacture the kit for all needs. CHRISTRIKES will have three models: THE OUTRIDER , THE STAGECOACH and THE RUSTLER . THE OUTRIDER is for people with disabilities that can transfer from the wheelchair onto the motorcycle's seat, or for a wheelchair user to ride as a passenger. THE STAGECOACH will allow you to drive the motorcycle from the wheelchair. This is the one for those who cannot transfer onto the motorcycle's seat. THE RUSTLER is for able-bodied individuals. With no wheelchair in the back of the motorcycle you have 25 sq ft for long road trips, camping, and general hauling. You'll never need a trailer again.

Modified controls with the same bold design
Wisconsin-based SS Trike has been designing and manufacturing motorcycles and three-wheeled vehicles from scratch since 2009. Because the company builds its vehicles from the ground up rather than modifying existing motorcycles, disabled riders can work directly with the company to customize the trike's modifications to fit their needs.

Walters Manufacturing has designed an automatic transmission for Harley Davidson motorcycles. This revolutionary new transmission replaces the hand clutch with a torque converter for trouble free starts and smooth shifts. All shifts are fully automatic and the transmission senses rider input at the throttle to vary shift intensity and provide engine braking. Reverse is included and there are no belts to wearout or replace. Just twist the throttle and go.
