I watched it--I thought it was a very cool tribute to EK-- Evel was really the ultimate stuntman/badass crazy dude back in the day--NOBODY would do it like he did it back in the day now--Think on this--he started with a hangover most of the time -- then he would take a shot of whiskey before the jump--put on slippery on the bottom dress zip up boots that would slip and slid on the footpegs but they looked cool to him--use a heavy ass bike with poor suspension that should NOT have been used for these jumps--no padding in his suits--no mathmatics to determine anything--and if he failed he usually healed up in a month or so and did it all again time after time...NOBODY has these kind of balls anymore..Travis did real well and I think Evel would have approved..

I saw it, it was pretty cool. Also cool to see the tribute to Evil, the guy was pure balls! Thats probably the easiest thing Travis has done in awhile jumping a bike :lol: :LOL: No doubt its a bigger, heavier bike with way less suspension, but the only thing I would think he was concerned about was the running room going to the ramp and the room to stop. I noticed he ever so slightly dragged the rear brake in the air to get the nose down for a perfect landing on all 3 jumps. If Evil had known about that little MX trick, it would have saved him a lot of busted bones and hospital vacations :aww:
Travis is such a cool, humble guy, you gotta love the guy! I saw him racing in SX and MX when he was young, he was a fast kid.
The building to building jump he did was at least 12 stories up, he did it with no prep whatsoever, it almost made me piss myself. Scared the hell out of me :lol: :LOL:
