    Some guy is attempting to jump 300' on a motorcycle tonite at 11:00 on ESPN.

    If you're sitting home, bored, like I am, it might be worth checking out.

    Dude, don't be bored, I have a scooter in the garage and a prime rib on the smoker. Slide on by and we can setup a ramp and have BIG fun...! :D
    Well, it sounds good...Happy New Years...! ;)
     

  3. Bored? How? There's an Anthony Bourdain marathon on, and if that gets old, you can always watch Mythbusters... or just surf around OGF for awhile...

    Two hours to go... I should be asleep by 11:10....:D

    Maybe at the 2008 Vermilion Hawgfest, we can get Dixie Chicken ride a tricycle over a ramp and jump over three computer monitors, set up end to end. He'd be in his thong, of course. Can you say "Kodak moment"?

    Anthony Bourdain is great. Did you see his Cleveland episode?

    If I lived closer, Hook, I'd take you up on that.


    Just put in some Robin Trower, so I'll be rocking out shortly.

    Me thinks Bud Light and Cognac had something to do with it.

    Robin Trower (I got that), Interesting. I have 500 Lp's and been on a mission to to pickup one of those damn turntables with the USB hookup so I can convert all this stuff and go fully digital. I drove to the east side of town (20 miles) after ordering on line ony to be told...sorry, we don't have them in stock, again. :mad:

    Right about now, Me thinks...I'm going for the Hennnesy. ;)

    ShortDrift, You ain't right man...! :D

    12:31 AM, the jump is live right now.............

    Oh, the excitement.... it was a warm up run. His goal is to hit the ramp @ 95-100 MPH.

    Now for the real attempt..... 12:32 AM........Dude, he did it!!!!!! My gosh that was massive air!!!!!

    What a freak. The just said that he's disappointed becasue the wind slowed him him down. He said he wanted 360 feet, but he "only" went 322 feet.

    Holy cow, this guy is going to die. He just asked for everyone to clear the ramp. He is jumping it again!
     
  15. Thanks Big Daddy.....The First Nightmare of 2008.....

    Happy New Year All ! ! ! !

    322' 7"

    60' high at the peak. Yeah. He's nuts.


    Jumped it twice. Do you think the promoter got his moneys worth?
     
  19. NO!

    Bad TV... Had that low budget, 1972 feel to it. :D

    But, it got me and my kids to watch, so there you go! :eek:
     
  20. It was a cool jump, but about an hour and 20 mins to long. I did get to see my favorite anouncer Jamie Little however.:D
