Tribute jumps to Evel using a FTR750 Scout

Just over 50 years after Evel Knievel’s attempt to jump the fountain at Caesars Palace, Travis Pastrana will honor his legacy by recreating three of Evel’s most famous jumps.


On July 8th in front of Caesars Palace, steps from Las Vegas Boulevard and in front of millions of TV viewers, Pastrana will push the boundaries on what is possible with man and machine, jumping an Indian® Scout® FTR750 V-twin motorcycle all while creating Las Vegas’ next iconic moment.

Nice.

My favourite Travis Pastrana video is from when he was about three. His dad had an earth moving company and little Travis is driving a bobcat in the yard. In the process of coming through the gate he knocked the brickwork gatepost and wall over. Gotta love home movies.

I've never heard of him before this. 

To be a truthful tribute to a great showman like Evel, shouldn't the stunts be done on his beloved Harley Davidson's.

You should check out Travis jumping out of a plane without a parachute.

He is one crazy SOB...
