Doug Henry is the ultimate bad ***... he flat refuses to give up no matter what. Truly inspirational to watch him riding again. Doug- YOU DA MAN!

You dont mean the MX series, do you?

Man, I have mixed emotions about this one. Suffice it to say that the man's dictionary doesnt contain the word surrender.

He really is amazing. I wish I could ride half as good as he does.

Mixed emotions is right for me as well. But sitting in a chair knitting for Doug Henry is probably not what he considers living. I think he's an inspiration to everyone. Even if your only desire is to compete in the world knitting championships

While I also have some mixed emotions about this, I feel the same way about Ricky James and the others who have been left disabled and still climb on a bike. But, IMHO, they are adults and in my mind is their decision to do what they feel they have to do. I simply hope they do not further injure themselves when they choose to do this.

And besides, look at what John Dowd did at Southwick this year...I'm sure DH would have done just fine too.

Hard to say about this one, after breaking his back twice? I guess he thinks he has nothing to lose. That man loves to ride though.

I love that vid. And no mixed emotions from me. Anyone who is so afraid of being paralyzed should never throw a leg over a dirt bike. Dude has my respect and my support.

THREE CHEERS FOR JEDI! Couldn't agree more. The guy flat out refuses to lay down and play dead, he's an inspiration to say the least.

I finally got the video to load up for me. Now THAT is impressive. He can still haul azz and I'm happy that this gives him some activity to keep his mind busy.

The guy definitely still has some serious skills, but I also like his cage that goes over his head. I don't think I've seen anyone else with that style on the bikes (Ricky James and David Bailey) and it seems quite a bit safer if you do go down with something like a rollcage. And as for him doing it at all, I can certainly see both points of view and think that everything we do is a calculated risk and maybe he figures that he's done paying into the bad luck bank. I imagine this track is his own and he knows it inside out and probably wouldn't jump out onto any old torn up track and be that confident.

Thats a never say die attitude if ive ever seen one...wow. The bike is impressive but to me the sled is more impressive due to the sheer weight of that sucker.

You said it brother! MX ain't for and is not in our vocabulary. Doesn't matter how or you are but only how much you have. If you love to then don't let the get you down or call you do what you love and

Well said.....
I think it's awsome he still gets out there and does his thang! His choice to make and more power to him. I don't know that I would have come back after the first broken back but then again, I've never been in that position. Awsome vid and yes, he still hauls the mail!!!!
