Denny Edwards-The Flying Irishman
Posted by Dave Whiting on December 22, 2010, 7:25 am
I had the honor of being invited by Denny Edwards (the Flying Irishman) to an annual flat-trackers convention this last October. Denny was a jumper back in the early "70s and ended up being Evels back up jumper at one of Evels performances. There were big name famous racers that showed up that appeared in the old movie "On Any Sunday" along with some of the nicest vintage bikes I've seen. Denny had a Evel Knievel replica Harley XR-750 on display too.
He is one of the most nicest, gentle and humblest
people I've ever had the pleasure to meet.
It was a great evening.
Thanks Denny !
PS. Still waiting for my package

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
