: Well, I'll say this. I respect you very much
: for your ramp to ramp jumps.
: Here's one thing about Knievel I should say.
: His jumps weren't very far. They weren't
: very high. He didn't have much skill. His
: bikes were pigs, even for the time. He
: caught everyone when they were very naive
: about motorcycles in general, and jumping
: especially. But there was one thing he
: really, really worked on hard, and that was
: getting publicity. He made sure he went to
: the right people, got the right interviews,
: hustled up the publicity out of nothing. I
: think you should be on the front of Sports
: Illustrated. Some big publicist should be
: booking you for interviews in all the
: magazines, newspapers, TV talk shows, public
: appearances. That kind of thing is what you
: could really use to get that notoriety you
: When it came to publicity, I was a failure,
: because I didn't care one bit about it.
: Don't be like me. That won't pay the bills.
: Getting famous and having everything that
: goes with it is a full-time job that doesn't
: seem to have much to do with motorcycle
: jumping, but you would sure benefit from
: that. There are thousands of reporters who
: would love to interview you. Somebody should
: be in your life sending you out there to
: pound the pavement to build you a publicity
