Hi welcome back to foxnews.com.
This is the fox highlight show where we talk about a variety of different things so far we've talked about.
Hurricane -- the recovery charities and now we want to transition to another subject.
I'm so pleased to bring on our next few guests because.
I actually was the one that got an email originally.
-- -- your story welcome to -- And Megan had now all I hope I'm saying that right -- -- -- last name.
And you know K okay hi guys -- -- you know I as you know I got an email from a friend of -- -- Lungren who told me about your story he -- you guys.
I believe it at an airport and he was so moved that he he sent us an email.
And after reading your story online and finding out more about -- -- -- had to have you on.
-- to learn more about what you guys are doing so I first want it.
Welcome you both to the show.
And I want it you know queued up to you guys to have you tell us your story your incredible tale of of what happened to you Fritz and how you have taken.
What happened and made it into a really cool thing for people with motorcycles.
Who are in wheelchairs go ahead.
In 2010 I was in a car accident.
Was thrown from the vehicle broke -- he's voter bring him paralyzed from the waist down.
Spent a few months in the hospital.
Ridden motorcycles all over the country in my entire life first thing I thought about when I woke up wasn't whether or not I would be able to walk it was whether or not -- ride my motorcycle.
Right and they sent home from the hospital with a lot of pain pills and a lot of time in.
For recovery and I lived there for almost a year in.
My wife asked me what we're going to do.
And so I bought -- motorcycle and we rented warehouse that's where it would be my laboratory.
And we would find -- market.
And for some reason I trust that -- along with if we hang out.
To order a dreamer and and she keeps me grounded we started therein and we have found a market we call it big -- in shoppers and and we build motorcycles.
Strikes inside cars and adapted motorcycles or people with spinal cord injuries.
I ride my bike every day.
That is so amazing we're looking at Morgan -- scroll through some of the photos you guys have provided us.
That I assume that's Megan that's -- on the horns on the back of the bike having some fun back there.
-- -- talk to me about you know watching -- go through this idea.
And having it come to fruition.
-- you know it obviously -- such a tragic.
Accident like this and and things could go to the opposite way in terms of you know not wanting to ride again.
22 wants not only -- again and figure out a -- for Fritz did himself but to help others.
That's what's cool about threats.
He looked for a motorcycle and he was.
Bound and determined to get back on the bike it was just gonna happen.
And you look in the market and there's a few things out there but it's really expensive and doesn't give you the feel -- really riding a bike.
So he figured out a way to do it himself.
And the biggest thing was right it what about other people that are able that I don't know -- -- or can't do it for themselves or are they just settling -- not writing because they can't find anything.
So brits took it upon himself to to decide that he was gonna help others the other people out there that might be looking for that freedom.
The therapy he gets from writing -- motorcycle is is absolutely priceless that's the only place he feels like he's not in his wheelchair.
And to not have that would be completely tragic.
And you know there's there's wheelchair basketball at -- skis and things like that but for somebody that wasn't an athlete before.
That have a different hobby.
That isn't necessarily as accessible it's cool to hear the wherewithal to do it is gonna show other people absolutely inspires me everyday.
That's that's awesome.
And so when you talk about the things that -- already out there I don't ride motorcycles myself I've been one or two.
And I -- but I do what what was available for people before you kind of entered it I mean you've got this.
You've rented the 6000 square foot warehouse.
Where you know that your lab.
Where you are building these type of motorcycles.
Was it was in the -- it was fairly limited.
For people and -- chips.
What I would I think we're we're going with this it's less about motorcycles motorcycles or what I was into -- any options were limited and -- -- not wanna join the wheelchair club.
Because of this new thing in my life.
I rode motorcycles that's what I enjoyed and that's what I wanted to do and I think work we're doing it's big -- shoppers right now I think more away.
More than direction is going is whatever people are interview road courses before you got hurt or what ever was -- in a hot browser.
Courses -- motorcycles the frivolous things you did that making major life enjoyable are the things that we're gonna help people find we'll do research and development and figure out -- way for people that do things that they -- before they got hurt this is not a death sentence when you have an injury like this is just a different part of your life.
And we want to help people enjoy it you don't have to sit home watch TV.
Right -- I notice we have a lot of ranchers.
Like to watch -- and for people who.
Are -- you know guys like to be in a garage and wrenching on things and making things work.
Can you give us an example of something that you built something that you know you can relate to the viewers about how you made one piece of equipment work.
With what you were accomplishing.
The motorcycle that I rode.
So -- -- I got hurt I got -- in a car accident.
-- a chopper it's a pretty hardcore choppers -- rigid frame shocker would -- through the jockey shifting.
I put it three or 4000 miles a month on athletic I got her on March 18.
2010 in the last time I wrote that play was march 17 2010.
A few months ago -- a friend of mine ride that ride it.
And it was bittersweet it was cool -- -- going down the road it was cool to hear it.
But I wasn't sitting on my -- so I came home in.
Thought about it for a few days and how it can be could convince my wife I needed the materials to bill -- -- for that -- and we're building a sidecar Porter right now so I can.
Right up on it.
Slot might share down and transfer over onto the seat and ride my chopper.
And I want to give you both the chance to did -- give us see your kind of closing -- we have to wrap this segment.
Either so much more -- ask you about people can find you on your website and on.
Twitter as well right.
Twitter and FaceBook and we have a web -- as well YouTube account.
This is good but you've got a -- -- any final thoughts of Megan and Fritz that you want people to know.
About what you guys have been able to accomplish -- and maybe somebody out there watching right now.
Who didn't who had heard about -- in May feel that spark of hope that you guys felt when you.
Went forward in your mission.
Been in this like you can do whatever you want and whatever you're.
Whatever your hurdles might be you can do whatever you want it's all that's on your -- -- what you have.
In your heart so I think one of the biggest things that we took away from that's what you don't have to -- a lot of people are telling you to accept your position except what's going to -- since -- life.
You don't have to accept anything you just have to tolerate the little differences that there are.
-- something like this happens and keep -- not fight not fight every day you either get -- libertarian get busy Darlington.
And Fritz is busy woman's right on you guys -- not feeling that you're not doing it.
