Anyone watching? I remember watching Evil, collected the toys, jumped my bike, tried to break a bone..

Hopefully this will be good, but as they are planning all 3 in a row, I doubt much chaos and havoc...

Its going to be hard to beat Robbie Maddison jumping to the top of the Arc de Triumphe at the Paris Hotel - and then jumping back down - on New Years eve @ 10 years ago.

True,, but.. As has been pointed out in this so far boring show, Travis is doing it on a non MX style bike which is far more capable than most all jumps.

I wasn’t going to be watching until I saw this post. Remember a bit ago hearing about it but that was it....I planned on going to bed at 9:30 tonight but I guess that’s not going to happen..lol.

I like Pastrana and I hope he shows well. Evel had a deathwish of sorts that was tied into $$$$$$ and fame...I think Travis just digs the rush. Of course it’s his business but if you follow his career he just does him. Props.

I dig the new Indian. That similar bike has ruled flat track of late. Sadly they only plan to push a 1200 version-ish for the street.

Not downplaying it but whatever kind of bike he's on, for a guy like him, these were three very straightforward jumps. Having watched some of the stuff from his farm/ranch, he's probably been practicing the exact setup of these jumps for months.

Just watched the 60 second ESPN clip of all three jumps, there was just no way I was sitting through three hours of nonsense for this LOL.

This jump is so much more impressive than what Travis just did to me.....

I should have known that it would be a three-hour commercial for The History Channel's original content. Still, my 8-year old and I stuck in for the whole shebang.

Also a three hour commercial for Nitro Circus' new residency in Vegas. I went back and tried to watch it - it was even more brutal than I thought.

Yeah, not the best show.. I really only watched the jumps and surfed the rest of the time. I dig that Indian and hope they release a 750 version..
