Stuart Gunn is a blind motorcyclist but the inability to see where he’s going has not prevented him from setting a new World Land Speed Record. In 2002, Scottish biker Stuart Gunn was involved in a horrific accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. With determination and drive Stuart fought back and within 2 years was walking with a cane. Unfortunately, the accident had caused more damage than anyone had realized, and in 2008 he started having really bad seizures which eventually left him completely blind and paralyzed on his right side. Again Stuart worked hard with his never say die attitude and was able to regain 40% feeling in his right arm but none of his eyesight was restored.
