XR1200s Backflipped on Two Continents
The race was on in late November between two motorcycle daredevils on opposite sides of the world competing to be the first to backflip a Harley Davidson XR1200 motorcycle. Australia’s Kain Saul beat American Chuck Carothers to the punch when he accomplished the feat in Sydney on November 27, just a day ahead of Carothers’ successful jump in Prague. Saul’s jump is believed to be the first ever successful backflip for any fullsize street motorcycle (non-motocross or dirt bike).
