No-hands motorcyclist to ride 500-plus miles for charity
A 53-year-old motorcycle safety trainer is attempting the longest hands-free ride by traveling 525 miles without stopping.
According to Yahoo!, Phil Comar, nicknamed the “No Hand Man,” will be attempting to beat his own world record of 327 miles by doing a charity ride for Parkinson’s disease this weekend. Comar’s father died of Parkinson’s disease in 2008, and the cause has since been close to him. His goal is to raise $25,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Comar also says in the story that he’s never had an accident, and encourages no one to attempt what he’s done. And believe it or not, the only mods to he Harley Davison have been made to accommodate an extra fuel tank. For safety, he’ll have chase vehicles and another rider with him.
Check out the video below. Around 3:31, you’ll see how he maneuvers around sharp turns. You’ll see that steering with your entire body, while keeping your hands off the steering wheel, requires an incredible amount of balance.
