What makes a man jump two running helicopters on a 375lb Harley-Davidson XR750 dirt track racer? Why does a man perform wheelies on a motorcycle with no front wheel?
Bubble Blackwell is "The American Daredevil" of the old school variety in the modern era. Bubba saw Evil Knievel for the first time when he was 8 years old. The fire was lit. As an adult, the man has jumped buses, cars, semi-trucks, helicopters and more on his stars and stripes Harley in America, Japan and Mexico.
50,000 people watched Bubba jump 20 automobiles and take the World Record away from Evil Knievel.He jumped 14 buses in front of 17,000 people in Nashville, Tennessee. When Jay Leno contacted Bubba about doing a stunt on live TV via the Tonight Show, Bubba said yes. On October 22, 1989 Bubba Blackwell did that show and established yet another record by jumping 14 semi-trucks on NBC
In Vegas, Bubba jumped 15 tour buses with his XR and became the only daredevil to break all of Evil Kneivels records on the same type of motorcycle using the same size ramps. Amazing. Hear his story tonight on this epic episode of Talking Motorcycles.
