    Any one eyed riders

    Is it legal. Is anyone doing this? Is it posible? Is there some sort of technique or am I just wishful thinking. Dirts a Flyen San Due

    Yeah, it's pretty much universally legal. I've got an acquaintance in Ohio who lost and eye in his 20's, rides all the time. And rides well.

    What is the prognosis for restoring your vision? I assume time will tell how much recovery you will achieve but let's think positively. Can't have Sue radioing you all the time saying: "Tree ahead Honey, please swerve a little to the left"

    And I'm going to suggest that you seriously consider spending the money on one of these. Reevu motorbike helmets. Reevu - the world's first rear view helmet

    Time I suppose will relinquish answers to some of the questions. Tried to ride the bike this mourning after sue went to work and nobody was looking. Didn't do to well. Big mess, those blood thinners really work. Got a fat lip so I may have some explaining to do when Sue returns. She seldom looks at me so I may get away with it. Afraid to look at my chin. Borneo has given me some hope and when sue presses me about my newly acquired injuries I think I'll blame Borneo just to muddy the waters prior to my escape. Dirts a Flyen SanDue

    I was in my late 30's when my mother had cataract surgery on one eye. I asked her if she had any plans to have the other eye done, and she replied - "There's no need, I've never had vision in that eye." I never knew that until then!

    (Growing up, I would have bet she had eyes in the back of her head !)
