World Record Attempt 2008

World Record Attempt

190ft from ramp to flat ground

One of my earliest memories of childhood was when I got a Evel Kinevel toy that came with a ute, trailer with two Evel Kinevel motorcycles on the trailer, I would be playing with them for hours.

This world record attempt was in 2008 in Naiper New Zealnd leaping over 24 vehicles on a Kawasaki kx 250. I am still riding/racing my motorcycle when ever I can and jumping over vehicles, doing demo’s around New Zealand,

Because I was racing at the same time I was training a lot which means a lot of ride time, i had a couple beauty crashes witch broke my steering lug/stop and creased the frame from the fork hitting the frame. the creases did not effect the bike in anyway so I carried on using that bike throughout the year and use it for this event that you see in this clip.

Hope you enjoy, apologies for the amature footage.

I have recently published a kid's book My motorbike and I on amazon and hope to publish and post more on my blog/website with WordPress so bear with my date:10/03/2020. I've been riding motorcycles since I was 6 or 7yrs old and still riding, was 9th in New Zealand for motocross, multi beach racing champion, multi-regional champion, made it to the open book of records in 2008 jumping over 24 cars on a Kawasaki KX250cc clearing a distance of 57mtrs touring New Zealand the international monster truck stunt show, have coach and trained people. I have been in the building/carpentry industry for nearly 20 years in Gisborne and currently still working for the same company for 5 years. Also like riding BMX and mountain bikes, like watching extreme sports so hopefully, this blog gets interesting. I am an Amazon affiliate, so if you click on the link at the end of a review, I get a small commission. This blog is mostly a labor of love, but getting a little money for the work I put into it is nice too!
