Robbie Knievel - Biography
Robert Edward "Robbie" Knievel (born May 7, 1962 in Butte, Montana) is an American daredevil and son of stunt performer Evel Knievel.
Knievel's jumping career is markedly different from his father's, in that Robbie, up until 2009, used high-performance Honda CR500 motocross bikes that have been designed for jumping. Evel made most of his record-breaking jumps using a Harley-Davidson XR-750 motorcycle. The XR-750 is a significantly heavier and less agile motorcycle than the CR500 because the Honda is a motocross bike whereas the Harley is a flat-track racing motorcycle.
Robbie has made and often replicated Evel's jumps (including Evel's 1967 Caesars Palace crash) with the exception of two of his father's major accomplishments: a Harley-Davidson XR-750 jump and the Snake River Canyon jump using the X-2 Skycycle. Although never attempted, Robbie stated that he would use a XR-750 to clear a record-breaking 16 buses, three more buses than his father attempted at Wembley Stadium in 1975 (the current record for jumping a Harley-Davidson XR-750 is 15 buses, currently held by Bubba Blackwell). Additionally, Robbie stated that he would attempt to re-create his father's 1974 failed rocket jump over the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho.
In mid-2005, Knievel starred in A&E the TV series Knievel's Wild Ride. Knievel also was to co-star with Lee Majors in a pilot series called Hollywood Stunts that featured greats such as Spanky Spangler, Matthew Phillips, George Nelson and Ron Nix. In 2006, Knievel opened a new business called Knievel's Custom Cycles, based in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey. Business ventures were conducted through the company, Knievel Motorcycle Manufacturing Inc., which sold different custom motorcycles and various Knievel clothing items.
