They say if you fall off a horse, you should get right back on.

The adage holds true to motorcyclists, too, according to injured and amputee riders who braved the rain to show off their bikes outside the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver yesterday.

Dave Munro, president of the Association For Injured Motorcyclists (AIM), Vancouver, lost his left leg above the knee five years ago after being hit by a drunk driver.

He said getting back on the bike quickly helps injured riders overcome their fear of riding and restores a much-needed sense of normalcy.

Marcia Thomson lost her leg to cancer and said the thought of getting back on her Harley helped her through rehab.

“When you’re having a rough day, it’s something to work toward,” said Thomson.

“If there’s a will, there’s a way.”
