Why? Did he get divorced?

Whattaya mean, suicide? Evel Knievel's still alive. Sorta. Well, parts of him, anyway.



And Evel did all his big jumps on an honest-to-'murica Harley-Davidson XR, complete with suspension designed in the Stone Age. Relatively speaking, landing these lightweight MXers with suspension travel measured in feet has to be a piece of cake. Or at least providing a somewhat improved probability of success. :-)

Cool, nice to see testosterone induced bravado live and well. i.e IMHO all great male achievements start with that.

Yep Good Point. I wonder how long this jump in Evel feet i.e. 2005 feet adjusted for 1970s technology.

I think I can top it. Someone get me a GSX-R.

All say "yay."
 
Absolutely, much better--and at no risk to anyone but himself.



And what a dead, solid, perfect landing!

Evel Knievel's longest and most publizied jumps were done on a re-badged Laverda, called an American Eagle. VWW

You've got a point there Buz. Losing a testicle is bad, but when you get a divorce they go for the whole package. VWW
