Welcome to the new NABD Shop
Support The National Association for Bikers with a Disability
The NABD was set up in April 1991 by six bikers from Stockport and Manchester who would not accept the idea that disabled people could not ride motorcycles, scooters, sidecar outfits, trikes or quad-cycles.
The initial project was to find a way to adapt a motorcycle for a rider who had suffered the amputation of his lower left leg in an accident. A fund raising party was organised and publicised locally and this prompted several other disabled people to contact the group asking whether it was possible for them also to ride specially adapted motorcycles.
Within 12 months the NABD had just over 100 members and had helped three disabled people to adapt motorcycles and ride them independently. In those early days each adaptation had to be designed from scratch, and many engineering problems had to be solved.
From this humble beginning the NABD was soon to become the world leader in the field of motorcycling for people with disabilities.
