    After Evel stopped, I stopped caring. Not that I ever cared very much. I’ve heard of Robby but the others are unknown to me.

    All these guys had talent and huge brass balls to do what they did. What makes Evel so impressive is the equipment he jumped with, late 60’s early 70’s Harley-Davidson xr750 is not considered a light weight motorcycle that along with pretzel Ceriani forks and horrible rear suspension makes his accomplishments all the more amazing!

      You got that right.

      I”ll bet most of the rest wouldn’t even try to jump on an xr750 if offered!

      I wonder if he would have crashed as much with a modern bike. Probably not. But, that was what many people paid to see. Along the same lines, modern trick riders have tools like foam block landing pads that Evel didn’t. I suspect he made a claim on his next trick and then went out and did it, hoping for the best.

    Evel is the king, anyone else wants his title have to jump 13 greyhound buses with a 60’s xr750.
