So long then...Evel Knievel

You jumped cars and buses,
but the rocket bike let you down,
never mind - we still remember you
as the wind up stunt toy, that was no good really

Joking aside... sad to see any childhood memory passing (especially at not a huge age) it just reinforces the fact that we are all speeding towards the inevitable end...

In Biker Heaven I hope the rocket cycle will take you way way further than it did on the mortal plane...

RIP Evel

I had one of these as a kid, and it was excellent...

at least as good as the real thing [shake head]

...and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes...
