Travis Pastrana Nails All Three of Evel Knievel's Historic Jumps

Travis Pastrana has jumped a custom-built Indian Scout FTR750 over 52 cars, 16 buses, and the notorious fountain at Caesars Palace in one day, recreating three of Evel Knievel's most iconic jumps. Pretty dämn amazing.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Watched it. Pastrana overjumped, landing further down the landing ramp than was planned. Who can blame him? I really enjoyed the show.

I wonder how many jumps of more than 75 feet Pastrana has made in his life. I bet it is in the thousands.

It was amazing and Travis was at Austin Subaru last Thursday (he drives and is sponsored by Subaru for autocross) for a meet & greet and I was tied up in an appointment. Shazbot!
