Who Remembers Evel Knievel's Snake River Jump

 A friend of mine not only remembers that jump in Idaho, but will be attempting a Guiness World Record on September1st,2011. Mad Mike Hughes is the World's Most Famous Limo Driver & he breaks records that Guiness can attest to. Mad Mike has the balls to set this jump up in record time and could use some financial backing. The man I idolized as a kid, Evel Knievel took 7 years to make the Snake River Jump a reality. I guarantee you Mad Mike knows why Evel's parachute prematurely opened. Mad Mike has done the research,made the changes  & has a plan to make it happen. This unforgettable event takes money because  like bikers now the small percentage who control the legal & insurance mumbo jumbo can put a KABASH on anything they are scared of. My friend Mad Mike Hughes has the balls to complete what he sets out to do,even if Evel Knievel didn't. I can admit one of the reasons I ride is due to the showman Evel Knievel. I jumped many garbage cans as a kid. I broke many bike frames in my attempts to break a neighborhood record,but that was in the seventies. Now I want to get the word out for a real attempt at a Guiness World Record in 2011.
