Maddo's New Year's Eve Jump (?)
I'll watch the jump, but I really don't care. IF he crashes and then comes back in 2-4 months and tries it again, I might be interested. If he clears the gap with no problem and then turns around and does it again...I'll laugh like I did last time... Where's the danger!
More on your post. It's like hurting your lower back more than your wrists. An HD XR750 is just another motorcycle that is not made for jumping. You take the good with the bad. If Bubba Blackwell's bikes were like Evel's, he would be crashing also. But then if Evel had one of todays bikes he would be just another jumper. That's progress!
Box stock 1975 Honda XL350 with dirt bike tires and a broken speedometer...150 actual slope to slope gap. 8 foot flat safety type deck...

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.
