Travis.. Knievel recreation

This ought to be good. Travis always knows how to entertain and if anyone can pull this off it will be him.

I just hope he doesn't end up like his friend after the Corvette deal.

Pretty cool he will do it on an Indian.

I’m sure he will get the first two jumps no problem but the Fountain jump has been tricky for a few.

The first thing that came to mind was the final scene of Sons Of Anarchy

“Pastrana wants to jump a motorcycle that was similar to the ones Evel used”

 

If that’s true he shouldn’t be jumping the Polaris. He can go down to his local Triumph dealer and buy the same bike Evil used to jump the fountains. The Bonneville T120

It's almost exactly what Evil used 

They haven't changed that bike much

I agree , that triumph would be the one .

But I’m sure Indian just may be helping back him just a little tiny bit ...

That Indian probably makes twice the HP that Triumph does..

Either way to Travis . And his big ’s

If you are referring to my post I'm talking about the original Evil bike and the new Triumph not the Polaris

I bet that stock Triumph, like me, has gained 50 lbs since the 70s.

Show me a Triumph racing at the pro level in the Flat track Twins class and you have a bike... Not sure if any are racing.

Travis is a promoter and I bet Indian saw a way to get headlines.

Does Indian sell a street tracker largely based on their flat tracker?  If I had way too much cash, that would be a fun bike.

FYI the Cowboys took a knee in prayer to counter protest the taking a knee during the national anthem. Dayam, I was a 49ers fan too.

Link to the Corvette debacle?  Did Travis try to rally race one?

No, he paralyzed his buddy in an accident while driving.
