Kain Saul Backflip
Click video to watch Kain Saul perform an impressive 40-foot back flip on a 566-pound Harley-Davidson XR1200. Yes, Kain does a freestyle backflip on this nearly stock, nearly brand-new Harley-Davidson XR1200… Reminds me of the old Evel Knievel days.
Butte, Montana is a forlorn and windswept town with a mountainside so scarred from copper mining that it is visible from space. In its heyday, it was the ideal Petri dish for miscreants, a wide-open place renowned for prostitution, gambling, and general debauchery. In recent and more civilized years, Butte has served as a backdrop for Evel Knievel Days, an annual festival in which fans gather to pay tribute to the city’s most famous export.
