: i don't agree--I think 16 buses would be a
: difficult jump on an XR750 traveling over
: 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.
: so, just out of curiousity, did you make
: your long jump on a motocross or a flattrack
: 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.
: --Previous Message--
: An easy jump for a real jumper. Robbie would
: have had room to spare. Remember, Evel's
: ramps are not being used, therefore the
: speed of the jump is a lot less then what
: Evel had to get up to. Plus, Robbie can
: actually ride a bike. (No offence Evel)
