The Flying Irishman Flies Again!

Today I witnessed a world record. After a 32 year hiatus, Denny Edwards aka the Flying Irishman made history today when he became the oldest man at age 72, to attempt (and make!) a motorcycle jump. The Flying Irishman jumped his vintage 1966 Triumph 750 motorcycle over two Peterbilt trucks mimicking his final jump over a log truck back in 1985, the year he retired.

Around 4,000 fans were there to witness his feat and to cheer him on. It was an incredible thing to witness!
