And yet oddly enough, no one seems to give a ***** (except for my insurance adjuster).

I remember when nobody gave a shyt about Supercross and the X-Games too. This may follow the same course.

After generations of fast-food youth diets, endless hours of mindless television, video games and now computers...we've finally arrived at this. Obviously, the system has failed us greatly. What next, the skidmark distance record on the inner lining of one's briefs?

Hey longride,



That post was taken directly from 2wf.com??



If you want my stuff just ask for it or at least have the decency to credit the site for it.



I paid my eleven odd bucks to MO, go find me some original news.



Thanks in advance,

MikeE

<blockquote>
Blankstrom set his sites on breaking the World Record for the Longest Endo previously set at just over 738 feet after Craig Jones on a Buell XB-9R claimed the record held by Kevin Carmichael of 668 feet on a Suzuki 1000. Both riders have accomplished their respective records by modifying their stock handlebars to a Moto-Cross bar set-up.
</blockquote>

Minor nit in the press release...
Actually, Craig Jones was on a stock Buell XB-9S. Just added some front tire pressure. See
the link for some good video...



Nice job by Blankstrom.

What does XSBA stand for? Do people actually go to watch this stuff?

Ranks right up there with reading the Guinness World Book of Records from cover to cover: "Wow, that's some ball of twine..."

eXtreme SportBike Association.



Since it is run by Clear Channel, I must assume that they plan to get enough paid attendence to make a profit.

749 ft? Outstanding. I know people that can't run that far. Kudos to him.



I'm glad, if a little surprised, there's not more feedback from the "What about the twisties?" brigade. Looks like they may be coming around to the idea that stunt riders, though a littel crazy, are quite talented.
