Recommended Posts

Lol, nobody tried what?

Riding a wheelie into a wall then falling over?

He's awesome no matter what though.

It's weird, they had a huge presence in the 70's, especially in Europe.

Suzuki walked away from GP racing after Brad Lackey won the 500 title. Imagine being the world champion of the premier class and not have a ride to defend the title.

Only Travis would post 2 crashes. And a backflip on a jump he probably never rode off before. 

You know all of those masks people wear for Covid-19. Wearing one in a race looks like a good idea. Need a Scott rolloff system. 

Travis and Sipes had a $1 bet for a 450 TT National race. Sipes won finishing 8th to TP 9th. Not bad since qualifying for the main event was an accomplishment.

I wouldn't F with anybody that'll jump out of a plane without a parachute.

Can't believe he's almost 40.

It's probably for the best he had 2 girls. If he had boys...

Danger Deegan, hold my root beer.

You misunderstood.  He was on a dual sport. You know, fat cushy seat, heated grips, reverse...all that. 

100 miles of dirt roads ain't racing.

Me neither, but I sure am a big fan and respect his talent to excel at any level on anything. Oh, and what a innovator too with the bike flip, foam pit, etc.

Now, everyone is doing it but he was the first

I didn't even touch on Nitro Circus and the following that has.

I nearly hated him when he was "racing". To be clear, I didn't hate him, but I sure couldn't understand why he couldn't concentrate and focus on just racing and Championships!

But as I matured and began to understand Travis, I realized he wanted to live his life his way, and it certainly worked out wonderfully for him!!!

Travis pretty much ended his pro career at the start. His dad said don't go off that huge jump. Travis did and wrecked his body. His dad was pissed because he made a commitment to Suzuki and wrecked himself right before National MX started. 

More crashes. More injuries.  TP said his body could not take a full season.

Travis has a magnetic personality.  Was walking through the pits years ago, when he was walking towards me, he says "HEY, HOW'S IT GOING!?"... and raises his hand in passing for a high five.  All smiles, so off the wall.  Marketing genius.

Travis Pastrana is like the Robin Williams of extreme sports.  Hope he never loses that energy and enthusiasm.  :cheers:

He raced one year 05-08ish At the FL GNCC knocked his radiator off, I was talking to him at his rig and he was bagging on me saying I was watching him take his socks off. LOL

I told him at least I finished (8th Bclass). We BSed for 10 to 15 mins fun guy to bench race with.
