Motorcyclist Continues Riding after Losing his Left Hand

I just saw an article in Ultimate Motorcycling about a motorcyclist who lost his left hand. This new handicap did not stop the rider. We all want to ride and no matter what happens to a rider, the will to continue riding is very strong. Here's an excerpt from the article:

But what happens when something catastrophic happens in your life to prevent you from getting that sweet rush of joy and excitement from riding a motorcycle? In the case of Bert Pot, the lure of riding a motorcycle again was so strong that, despite the losing his left hand, he set about making the impossible very possible." -- Ultimate Motorcycling Staff

A motorcycle was struck in Ft. Myers, Florida. A doctor happened to be right behind the car that hit the bike. He speaks out for motorists to be more aware of motorcycles and to not do distracting things while behind the wheel. Here's an excerpt:
