    If at first you don't succeed......Try,Try,Try again.

    They figured out how to back flip a Monster truck and snowmobiles. I'm sure they will figure the King out.... Wonder if the have considered the suspension for landing????? I'd hate to see the back flip a success and the landing be a disaster.

    Wow, last time I checked Harley's were not designed to be stunt bikes. Hopefully this guy understands that now!

    A quick internet search shows Evel Knievel* using Harley Davidson's XR-750 from 1970 to 1977.

    *Evel Knievel article from Wikipeda

    Cheers!!

    Just one question....WHY? Because it hasn't been done? There are plenty of things that hasn't been "done" but like this is there really a reason to try?

    OK 3 questions.:D

    Its the youth of today, we thought when we were kids we did crazy or stupid stuff, I think today the kids really are stupid and its all about being the first at any cost
