This just seems… dangerous unless the environment is 100% controlled.


So it’s apparently pretty damn controlled, with simple instructions given by a guide riding alongside him. It’s only on a specific track for the moment as well, and no he’s not getting on the road in any capacity. I mean, shit, power to him I guess? The way he’s dressed it up comes off as “don’t let those who say no keep you down” but I’m hoping he’s not dumb enough to not realise that saying that in response to “blind man on dirt bike” is a bit different to “kid going to arts college”


Not to be ableist, but…


Anyone else think it’s weird to license someone to ride a dirt bike?
