Wow, it is hard to hear this. Hang in there and don't let it all get you down. If you want to continue riding, then you will. I have had three heart attacks, open heart surgery and have Rheumatoid Arthritis and still ride. You can get back on too.
I had a bad motorcycle accident back in '72 and one of the guys in the hospital with me had lost both of his legs below the knee from a drunk driver pinning him against another car. He had to go to riding a trike after that accident but he continued riding. A local brace maker here in my home town lost his left leg below the knee and continues to ride, he uses an electric shifter. It is all up to you. You have a lot of choices now, you can go to a bike with an electric shift like you talked about in your message, you can go to a bike with an automatic or you can go to a trike or a sidecar rig. Lots of choices.
