my first jump, at 52 years old
Posted by Greg on March 31, 2015, 1:56 pm
I have always wanted to recreate Evel Knievel's first paid jump of two pick up trucks end to end. I am getting older (going to be 52 in November) and figure its getting time to put up or shut up. Having only ridden street bikes since the teen years I want to buy a used enduro and get this done. I am thinking this is a relatively short jump (Evel came in at 45 feet). I do not think he had a landing ramp and so my thoughts are this. A 250 enduro with a speedometer, a take off ramp only. I have 5 acres of flat land to do the jump on so it would be a flat dirt landing. Any thoughts, suggestions, or advice? I could really use it.
