You can tell a class act when you meet one! In this case I met two! Bubba Blackwell and his partner Ron worked their asses off in 100 degree plus weather for two shows at Smokin’ Harley Davidson in Winston-Salem, NC 20190713! He treated me to a first-class spot and made me feel at home right away! I’ll have some video ready before long! I’d love to see his big truck jumping ramp set up but there just wasn’t room where we were. I got a kick out of his five-biker chick jump! One biker chick was strapped with a nine or a 40 so if he missed she could come up shooting!
Thank You Bubba!
Thank You Ron!
The Famous Five Biker Babe jump will be reloaded via youtube. Stay tuned up!

From Bubba Blackwell. “My last jump October 24, 2020, Hellfighters USA Laurel Mississippi.
I returned my XR750 to my longtime Jump Bike sponsor George Schott in Auburn ME 1200 miles away so I will not be tempted to change my mind.
Thanks to Harley-Davidson, Dunlop, Bell helmets, and tons of
H-D dealerships around the U.S.
But mostly “The Fans” that rooted me on and prayed for me when things didn’t work out right…
42 broken bones is more than enough and I’m excited about buying my new semi truck and making my new company successful!!!!
We will be at many races and events so we hope to continue to see everyone.
Time to move on”
Bubba Blacwell Quote.
“Found this in Ron’s photos…When I jumped the 15 buses in Las Vegas, we didn’t have much time for practice, so we built a table for the existing ramp, and lifted it high enough to clear the bus. Was 13’6” and we just built a new approach and I just eyeballed it… it worked. Left the ramp at 87mph and landed at an unexaggerated 157’ later making it the longest XR750 jump12/18/99”
