I know this has nothing to do with guns but I was just watching the local news this evening, and they just anounced that he passed away on the way to the hospital at the age of 69. Im 46 and grew up watching his stunts and when I was a kid, used to build ramps and jump my bicycle, inspired by him. Then when I was 16, I started doing it with my Kawasaki 250 dirt bike, untill I tried to do it once with my girlfriend on the back and she flew off breaking her arm. Needless to say that after my parents paid the hospital bill, I lost my dirt bike. Oh yeah my girlfriend too. That was 30 years ago, damn how time fly's. One thing for sure, this man always spoke his mind.
