That's too bad. I used to have a few of his toys when I was a kid. Considering the way he lived 69 is pretty good if you ask me.

Re: Evel Knievel Dies...

RIP
He was a bad boy turned to God at the end.
He didn't go by "Evil" anymore and used his God given name of Robert or something.

Live hard, die young.
He burnt the candle on both ends for sure!
Glad I blew one of my ends out.

peace

Yea I was thinking the same thing. I remember making sure I was infront of the TV watching Wide World Of Sports anytime he was going to make a jump. He did this pretty much on a stock bike. With the bikes today those jumps would be a peice of cake and they could do them while doing moves in the air.
