You nailed that  Thumbsup

I’d just like to know more about the bikes suspension.   Is it more like suspension on the bikes Evel actually used?

His new Indian is much closer to Evel's suspension than a CR500 motocross bike that Evel's son Robbie used when he jumped the fountains in the 80s.

Robby no where to be found last night.  Some of the other family was there.

But it was 3 hours of nothing for 30 seconds of jumping.

Pastrana is so good.  He makes this stuff look easy.  Talented dude.

The have the physics and science perfect and Travis knows how to keep the bike in the pitch attitude he needs.   Level until almost touchdown then hit throttle to bring wheel up before touching down.  

Impressive rider  Thumbsup
