It’ll Happen on July 7
Want to ride a motorcycle through a set of wooden walls that are set on fire? Me neither, but apparently that’s what Vicki Golden, four-time X Games medalist, plans to do. Golden will attempt to set a new Fire Wall world record at the Evel Live 2 event on July 7th. She will ride an Indian FTR 1200 S to do it.
According to RideApart, the event is put on by History and Nitro Circus and it will take place at the San Bernardino International Airport in California. That means there should be plenty of room for Golden to let the FTR 1200 S run. The bike will also be on display at the event. This is a smart way for Indian Motorcycle to showcase its bikes and inspire current and future riders—a tactic Harley-Davidson should be paying attention to.
After Golden attempts and hopefully succeeds in her Fire Wall spectacle, Axell Hodges, a freestyle motocross racer, will attempt to jump a modified Kawasaki KX450F 200 feet over 25 semi-trucks. Then Hodges will attempt to beat a long jump record of 378 feet and nine inches. Travis Pastrana will co-host the event and Robbie Maddison will be in attendance and chatting with Pastrana.
