I was riding in my car looking for photo ops and saw this man in the wheelchair, so I pulled over and met Toby Memorial Day May 2008 as he was about to cross the street. He is a lover of The Rolling Stones and heavy metal music in general. The American Flag, spikes, chains, shell casings, checkered flag, and assorted writings adorn his motorized wheelchair.

Toby told me he is, “47 years old and a motorcycle accident in 1998 is how I landed in my Crotch Rocket.”

Driving his “Crotch Rocket,” provides him transportation and he drives it as often as the weather allows, using the skull shifter to navigate the sidewalks around the Good Samaritan Health Care Center where he will live for the rest of his life.

Ride Toby ride!
