Ken, you may have jumped 16 feet or so farther than Bubba Blackwell's longest jump, but it still wasn't on a XR-750.
At the cyclejumpers site, there's at least two photos of you on a motocross. http://www.cyclejumpers.com/kenmackow.html
so, just out of curiousity, did you make your long jump on a motocross or a flattrack bike?
16 buses is no problem on a CR-500...but, apparently, it was on the HD since RK never even did a practice jump on the XR750.
also, as an fyi, EK's furthest jump was 133 and BB's was 157--so, as we near 40 years since EK made the Kings Island jump, i'm a little surprised that an XR750 has only made it only 24 more feet than Evel Knievel's longest jump.
maybe--just, maybe, that's because EK knew how to jump a bike not designed to jump.
but, i suppose it doesn't matter because Kaptain RK will likely never make a jump on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
