    Fun, inspirational videos in the OC

    The internet is filled with great speakers and inspirational videos. Often, I will share some of these to help inspire others. How about we create a thread that lists some of the more interesting things we have found out there.

    The ground rules are simple: 1) Adhere to forum rules (Mtbr Posting Guidelines) 2) Give a quick summary of why you like the video.
    This isn't meant to be a replacement for or distraction to passion bike video threads, mountain biking skills or "bike porn" video threads. If you want to share something biking related, go for it though.


    Here is my first entry. What I think is amazing is that the boy is having a great time and has some natural skills. I'm always impressed what people are capable of doing.

    This one touches on how the Wright brothers flew and Apple innovates. Just ask why instead of how...or what...

    This may sound crazy. 3,225 HP is pretty inspirational to me.

    Cool vid, Korn. All the riding stuff is awesome for sure, but I was geeking out over the camera guy was showing off all his camera's and camera stuff.

    It's a must watch, if you ask me. I did a search and don't think it's been posted here at mtbr. Maybe I'll post it in GD.

    Korn - that's great! I hadn't seen that come out. I thought I had followed his story closely over the past year. You can see the pain in his eyes but his refusal to surrender is awesome. You can follow his on Facebook and see pictures of him out in some handbike chairs.

    Glad you enjoyed it! I had only seen short clips of the first one and knew nothing about the second Road Bike Party, I did hear about the accident, but didn't know much about it. It's rad to see how that brought those three together, and something great was created. I love the part where Martyn talks about doing manuals in the wheelchair.

    A beautiful calico cat named Honeybee has lost her vision but not her sense of adventure and wonder.

    Her owner adopted the cat from Animals Fiji, who rescued her, saving her life. Now Honeybee has human companions who help her to lead a full life by taking her on excursions such as this hike near Mason Lake, a lovely, heavily wooded area in the mountains outside of Seattle, Washington.
