    But at those speeds, don't turn the steering wheel - ouch!

    I wonder if he's got a big red button labled "Turbo" on it :D

    I hope my son never reads that article. His wheelchair goes 5 mph and that's fast enough for me. Granted, he does scream like a banshee when we go riding 40 mph on my 4x4 Ranger ATV. ;) Now, if Harley-Davidson made motorized wheelchairs, THEN we'd be talking!

    Didn't Orange County Choppers do something similar in an AOL t.v. commercial?

    It's a bit too much power. I can do wheelies in a wheelchair already. :D However, I can see how getting across a 4 lane road quickly would be quite useful.

    I think that it's a very thoughtful thing that he did for his mother-in-law. It is just a little bit more speed and power than she will ever need. From the pictures it seems that he is getting all the enjoyment.

    60mph on a jet powered wheelchar with no helmet!!! :eek:
    I wouldn't strap myself to anything jet powered that I made myself without a helmet.
    Wasn't there just a thread about the usefulness of a helmet on a bike. :rolleyes:

    He got about ~$2800 of donations for the parkinsons disease foundation. Yes, he gets to go fast, but the money he makes going fast is going to help her disease.

    Even though he did raise some money for Parkinson's research, the article stated that she had to buy a new wheelchair. So how long does it take to get up to 60 mph in a wheelchair?
