Ekins: Well that was shot on a Monday and on Sunday, Steve, myself, an Australian motor-cross racer and Tim Gibbs, an excellent rider, we all went out to where they were going to do that [scene] and the effects man put a piece of string across at all these different heights. The first time I'd take a run at it and jump maybe two feet off the ground and then we would take a shovel and dig this natural ramp, changing the angles on it. And I'd jump 4, 6, 8 feet and then when we reached 10 feet we said that's it--we had the ramp and the speed. Nobody knew we were up there… so when it comes to Monday nobody said we'd already done it. Finally when I went ahead and did it we did it in one take. It seemed I was up in air forever--10 or 12 feet high and 120 feet distance jumped. When I was in the air it was dead silent.
12 feet in the air for 120 ft on a 1963 design suspension is why it still stands out. Amazing.

Is Black Rock down by the Indian Graves camp sites? 'cause I've been through there a few times. Unfortunetly, it's to the point where I might sell the blue beast and ge a KLR650 so I have some friends to ride in the semi-dirt with. It's a very tough decision as the WR is a fantatic bike and I'd like to have it as a keeper.
