MRVN "Pass the Word - Share the Wind" with Disabled Motorcycle Enthusiasts

I'm posting this, in hopes that every one that reads it, will register and be available to give someone a ride sometime. Be it on the Back or in the Hack. Little did I know, that Gary & his wife were in the next Town.
I was surprised to find the NH Sidecar Assn. boss just down the road in Tamworth. I live in Albany.
My name is Gary Foote. My wife, CJ and I are the founders of the Motorcycle Ride Volunteer Network [MRVN], a global effort that we feel would be of interest to many disabled motorcycle enthusiasts and we hope you can help us reach out to them.
With the goal of making the sport of motorcycling more accessible, we have developed an Internet website and public Delphi forum, both with the same two goals;
1) To reach out to disabled people who would like to experience motorcycling but, due to their disabilities, cannot or have not.
2) To help arrange motorcycle Riding Partnerships between Volunteer Motorcyclists and disabled enthusiasts.
Please help us get the word out about MRVN and its efforts.

Hi Wiskers - Thanks for posting about MRVN here. Sidehacks make motorcycling accessible to so many more people than do long bikes. I hope that your example in volunteering at the MRVN website will set a trend for sidecar.com members around the world to offer their hacks or backs to disabled motorcycle enthusiasts.
The MRVN site carries listings of volunteers and disabled passengers seeking rides, broken down by state and country. Its eaxy, as you know, to register.
OK - That's enough promoting . I'm going to poke around the site some to see what I can see.
