    Yea, the hyped advertising lied. It's still got limited suspension though.. 4" - unless they are making that up too. Either way I wouldn't do it!

    Damn, I missed it. Years back when ever Evel was doing the jumps that made him famous a good portion of those who watched were looking to see him crash and burn. He sure did have some fabulous crashes over the years and I bet he alone caused way too many of us idiot kids to have some equally fabulous crashes just trying to emulate his jumps here at home. I know one such idiot who crashed his Hodaka Ace 90 pulling one of Evel's stunts back in the late 1960s and it still hurts every morning when I get out of bed.

    We had an abandoned sand and gravel pit and there was an old tow behind camping trailer someone dumped. A buddies dad had an old Willy's jeep for snow plowing and we used it to make a jump ramp over the trailer. We just never figured on the compacting of the sand after making it high enough. I hit the top at about 30 MPH and the rear wheel sunk in just far enough to hit the edge of the trailer sending me ass over teakettle in a beautiful Swan Dive with the bike right behind me landing seat first right on my back. The bike was fine but I had to tell my mother I fell down the basement stairs and right on my back but couldn't explain the cool chin scrape.
