    The going down part would be the worst. If you watch closely he almost over jumps the landing........would be body wrecking

    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    guys like him are why Robbie Knievel shouldnt have a career and people need to stop paying him so goddamn much to make appearances. around 5 yrs ago the car dealer company i worked for Warnock Auto Group paid that asshole 75 thousand dollars to jump several cars, this was during a year when "times were tight" and raises were on hold and people were getting laid off. He jumped a relatively small gap by professional standards with a cr500 ( you could jump from nj to california on that bike). Robbie Knievel couldnt dream of doing the jump in this vid. Retire asshole


    Yes im still pissed over what he got paid because it directly effected me and I liked my job

    It was cool. I think he broke his wrist on the landing, he landed to far out. This is what it might have looked like if he crashed. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x40...drop-ins_sport
