I wonder what Robbie Knievel has to say about this. It has seemed to me, for quite some time now, that these guys with their motocross/x-games experience had long since eclipsed what Robbie does. And they make it look easy. Robbie ends up looking kinda dumb doing it in a parking lot with not enough room, so he breaks his hand sliding into a bunch of haybales.



Heck I'm surprised Trigger didn't throw in the standard tabletop whip during the jump.

Ouch! I know that's gotta hurt!

In another story, they said that Mike Metzger lost a testical and damn-near turned himself inside-out while performing.

Re: first post

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. :)

All say "yay."

Absolutely, much better--and at no risk to anyone but himself.

And what a dead, solid, perfect landing!

(I hearby swear to never use another golf expression in this forum again.)
