 Post subject: Blind Fold Drive on 2 Wheels?!? Did He Just Go There?

So I've been off the forums for a while, but I'm hoping to make a strong return.

And I want to make that return with a blindfold drive. However, instead of doing the blindfold drive in a car, I'm thinking I want to do it on my moped (yes I have a moped and not a motorcycle, deal with it). Has anyone seen this done before? If so do you have any links to any performances that I could review? If not, can you guys recommend some resources I could look into to start my research and preparation for this demonstration? Can you guys think of any obstacles that would make this nearly impossible?

I know it's a lot of questions but group think tends to be a bit better at this sort of thing. Thanks so much!

Where abouts are you from? (country) I can best advise you on the way to go about it. It is documented people have rode motorbikes (and push bikes)

Youtube search there will be a dozen.
Here are some blindfold stuff. (I can think of)

13 steps to mentalism
Practical Mental Magic
Osterlind's stainless steel blindfold
John Archer's blindfold tips
Tom Jorgenson Brazen (recommended for driving)
Tarbell Vol 6
Berglas book (publicity stunts section)
Dexter's sealed vision
Osterlind's Dark vision
Sam Dalal's sp manuscript
Bob Cassidy New unit blindfold 2
Kenton Knepper's Duct tape blindfold
Patrick Kuffs aluminium foil Blindfold
Lennart Green's Laser
David Elder (search)
Tony Clark's Blindfold bag

As for the Obstacles, depending on the area you live, if you get enough press promo behind the idea I am sure the media/police will make you a fantastic course.

Thanks for the resources. I'm from the US. Concerning obstacles I'm refering more to the difficulty of riding a bike with limited vision, permits, what type of motorcycle might be best, etc. instead of literal obstacles. Also, is there a specific type of blindfold anyone would recommend? Thanks!

The Brazen blindfold is recommended for driving. You are best contacting your local police force for legal reasons and If the blindfold is good you should be able to ride just the same ;)
