Robbie Maddison

Donna Bowman directs us toward this video of motorcycle daredevil Robbie Maddison's amazing New Year's Eve jump. That's what I should have been watching instead of Miley Cyrus on MTV.

Hm, has anybody been to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve? How much do they jack up the hotel rates? Did you try to see any stunts like Robbie Maddison's or a hotel implosion, and, if so, was it easy to see or was the crowd just too much to be able to get a good view?

I saw the Robbie Madison thing the next day. Makes Evel Knevel (sp?) look like a sissy.

Corey and Stephanie went to Vegas for NYE, you could ask them.

@Kevin -- have you ever seen footage of Knievel's jumps? Maddison's jump was awesome, but it was darn sissified in comparison to EK's: a fancy vegas extravaganza vs. dirty horse rings? C'mon.

That's not even to mention I bet Maddo's bike was heavily modded, and took full advantage of the modern advances in engine power/size radios, lightweight building materials, etc. Knievel's bike was *heavy* and the engine had teeny hp!

Maddo's jump was awesome all by itself, there was no reason to diss a pioneer and a master in order to build it up.
