Here’s Your Feel Good Moment of the Week — Now, What’s Your Excuse for Not Riding Today?

06/06/2013 @ 11:59 pm, by Jensen Beeler7 COMMENTS


Darius Glover (Facebook & Twitter) is a dirt bike racer. Like you and me, he lives to ride, and when he is on two-wheels he feels the freedom that only other motorcyclists can truly understand. The thing is though, Darius is paralyzed from the waist down.

Where others would give up their dreams and this sport, Darius at the age of 15 instead pushed onward. No pity parties, no excuses, just simply a daily example of where there is a will, there is a way, and a reminder that you can achieve anything that you put your mind to.

It’s hard not to get a bit choked up listening to Darius tell his story, but you walk away feeling uplifted after feeling his attitude come across the screen. The dude has his head on straight, that’s for sure, and we all could take a lesson from his example. “Everything is on point when you’re on a bike — you feel like Superman.” Isn’t that the truth brother. Keep riding, keep racing. Thanks for the tip Audrey!
