Alan Kempster, an accident, a pilot, a story of overcoming

They say it's human to ask for more and that we carry in our blood not to settle for anything, which is innate in the nature of man but after seeing real life stories like the one that accompanies us, one of the feelings that remain is to be grateful and value the little ones moments that happen in our lives and that sometimes go unnoticed precisely for that reason, as small and insignificant. Australian Alan Kempster gives life a lesson in hope riding his motorcycle in a special way, as is evident when viewing the images.

You were in an accident caused by a drunk truck driver that literally ran over him. The consequences could not have been more fatal with the amputation of two of his limbs, arm and leg on his right side. We always think that these things cannot happen to us but they do. The most impressive thing about it is how this man recovers and supports sports to continue giving meaning to his life. First, doing nautical skiing, a discipline that I had never practiced, getting to participate in competitions for the disabled. For the rest of this article the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words, takes its maximum expression.


And so it is and so you see. Glance to the next bend, biting teeth and knee to the ground. Although this Alan Kempster must be a horny one to be careful, seeing the number that he has put on his motorcycle that indicates that he drives half a rider and some sticker on his screen. The fact is that after his recovery he got back on a motorcycle because Alan Kempster was already a motorcyclist in his native Australia. But he also does it not only with batches but also by competing.

For this purpose, the brave Australian pilot he had to modify his racing motorcycle and move all the controls to the left side. Thus in the left fist it carries the accelerator control and two levers that operate the clutch and the front brake. The footpegs also do the same by installing the rear brake next to the gear selector lever.

We have had very close stories of overcoming starring some of our people like the raid pilot Isidre Esteve who after a serious injury that left him in a wheelchair returned to compete. But not only pilots, surely you also know a similar example. I have a friend who, after a serious brain injury on a motorcycle, spent time in a vegetable state and had to learn to eat, walk, read and do the most basic activities. They are examples of strength and improvement from which we can only do one thing, learn. Thanks to Alfonso Fernandez down the track.
