This is TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Weekend, Travis Pastrana Attempts the Jump That Nearly Killed Evel Knievel

On Sunday, July 8th, legendary stunt man Travis Pastrana will attempt something that's never been accomplished before: Three record-breaking motorcycle jumps, back-to-back-to-back, in one evening. And the grand finale will be a shot at the jump that nearly killed Evel Knievel.

As if all of that wasn't challenging enough, Pastrana has added one more complication to the mix. Instead of using the type of lightweight, modern freestyle motocross dirt bike usually associated with extreme sports, Pastrana will be riding the Indian Scout FTR750 motorcycle. Why? This is the closest modern equivalent to the style of motorcycle that Evel Knievel rode in the 1960s and 1970s:

it was cool, i guess. i feel underwhelmed by it. modern bikes and athletes are so far advanced compared to Evel Knievel...Pastrana could do all three of those jumps with a backflip thrown in if he wanted to...

Seemed like a bunch of product placement and some rather easy (for Travis Pastrana) jumps. I couldn't watch though because salmasakela is a giant douche that makes my skin crawl.
