I just can't resist finding out.....

Evel Knievel broke a record 37 bones.... was that in his career or in one wreck?

I broke 27 in my September 20 wreck...

Did I make a one wreck record?

i'm pretty sure you outbroke Evil for any one accident. Yep, i believe you might have. Hope you heal up just fine, Roger.

The bad part is, I think 'Ol Evel broke each of those 37 bones about 37 different times!! Imagine what the man could've accomplished with a lightweight Japanese bike. It's amazing what he was able to do with those heavy Harleys.

Knievel's first jump bike was a Honda 350. He also jumped Norton 750, Triumph Bonneville 650, and Laverda American Eagle 750 before the Harley-Davidson XR-750. Can you picture him making a jump with a big old VTX 1800R. Something would have to give. I would not want to be down range.

Roger....I just got caught up on your old posts. How are you feeling? You getting around now? Glad to hear your talking about getting another bike. That's a good sign....
Thanks buddy! I've been out a few times. Borrowed a bike from a friend 2 weeks ago to do a toy run for the Salvation Army and then picked up my Boulevard C90 yesterday.

Had my eye on a VTX 1300R (Go figure) but didn't want to build a bike yet.... may get another next season.

Cool. Congrats on the C90. Of course you know we'll be expecting pics soon of your new baby.
