    My boys went to see Robby Knievel when they were little and got his autograph.

    Sad. He was it back in the 70s.

    :( He was SO COOL for us kids. We used to jump our bikes over ramps and pretend we were him (yes, me too!).

    My Dad took my three sisters and I to see Evel back in the 70's.
    30 something years later and my sisters and I still talk about it. The anticipation of the jump was awesome!
    Then four girls left the arena with some serious crushes on a rebel in a white jumpsuit.

    It used to be so cool when he was doing something LIVE! I remember watching him in his attempt to jump over Snake River Canyon in 1974.

    I don't know what it is but I LOVED Evel Knieval when I was a kid. I'm so sad to see that he's passed away. RIP Evel. :(

    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
