Man Plans 300-Mile Harley Ride – Using No Hands

A man plans to ride his Harley-Davidson about 300 miles from the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan to the Ohio border, without using his hands to steer to raise money for Parkinson’s disease research.

Phil Comar of Adrian tells The Daily Telegram that the Sunday ride is in memory of his father, Robert, who died in 2008. He wants to raise $3,000 with the ride for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

The 61-year-old has been riding motor bikes and motorcycles almost 50 years, and says he’ll steer with his legs and by leaning. An extra gas tank has been added to the back of his motorcycle so he can go nonstop.

Comar plans to ride to the bridge on Saturday – no-handed at times.
