    OT: Travis Pastrana is going to recreate three Evel Knievel jumps in Las Vegas.

    In one day and he's going to do it on a Triumph. Travis, why are you doing this? This is stupid!

    Awesome! Seems like Travis should ramp it up a bit due to modern day mechanical advantages.

    Not with the motorcycle he's using. I think he should just use a dirt bike.

    I just saw a video on you tube. I guess he'll be using an Indian flat track bike.

    Unless he does it on 1967 technology it doesn't mean a whole lot.

    It's almost time! 8E/5P. If he were riding an MX bike, I'd say this would be easy for him. I think it'll be very difficult on the bike he's going to use. I don't think this is going to go well.
