One hate to imagine how painful the landing might be with the forward pegs and the long reach to the handle bars. VWW

What better way to prove the road-worthiness of a cruiser. These guys are geniuses.

I'm going to attempt to bunny hop a really fat guy on an old Thruster BMX bike.



Someone call the press.

To really make an "impact", they should have Arlen Ness, the bike's creator, do the jump himself, now that would really help promote the whole event to a new "high", and maybe a very deep "low"

Default It may be April fool's but....

... I'll run with it.



They are going to televise this to the crowd at the Polaris 50th anniversary event? Really? What'll that be? 10 people?



After fighting with one of the worst snowmobiles ever built for several years I think I'll avoid celebrating anything about Polaris. Yamahas forever! I've also got an old Bravo that runs and runs and runs and never quits!



Maybe they should jump all their production of snowsleds too.

Given the Vegas's aerodynamic profile with it's narrow front wheel to knife the air, followed by the minimal wind resistance of the classic feet-forward riding style topped off my Mr. Blackwell' MX jumping experiance I'd say it was a done deal.

My only concern is, as stated, that he'll overshoot the landing and wind up plowing the verge, it'll take a firm hand on the throttle to keep the speed down to appropriate long-distance jumping speed.
