I saw Evel jump successfully at Seattle International Raceway in 1970, I think. Yikes, almost 36 years ago. Everybody expected him to crash like usual, but he pulled it off. He had to be helped off his bike.
Between Evel, Steve McQueen, Ponch and John (sometimes), my fate was pretty much sealed. Kudos to the first two for living life to the fullest. Gives credit to the phrase of wanting to be shot out of a cannon instead of being sqeezed out of a tube.
Ride on Evel & enjoy the morphine pump when it drips.
Quite a guy all right, the artical mentions other people out doing him these days. What it doesn't mention is that he did it on a 350 lb XR 750 with 4 inches of suspension travel, not a 220 lb dirt bike with 12 inches.
The guys an Original.
