Man I saw that report on NBC news tonight, sad at 69. I had his toys when I was a youngin, that man could jump a bike over anything!! They also did a cool movie about his life.

I saw a documentary about him a couple of times, he's a badass guy, but incredibly arrogant.

I guess he really believed in himself. I would have to have alot of faith in myself to hang my @ss on the line in a stunt that could possibly kill me.

He's lucky he made it as long as he did.

I used to have Evel's Super Jet Bike when I was a kid. It didn't catch air like the Stunt Bike but it did come with little flints that you stuck in the back to make sparks fly out the back as it ran along.



Dirt!
