    The first time in the world that a Harley Davidson has been back flipped to Dirt.
    Kain Saul from the Gold Coast-Australia, was the mad man behind the bars.

    The XR1200 Sportster supplied by Harley Davidson Australia and prepared by
    Gavin Walker and co from Quick Fix Harley Davidson, The bike tips the
    scales at 257 kilo and has around 100 horsepower.

    The jump took place in Victoria at one of Cam Sinclair's practice compounds. Cam Sinc's was there to give a hand.

    Filmed and edited by Firestorm Films. FSF

    The jump and this footage was featured on SPORTS TONIGHT on ch10 on Australian tv as the PLAY OF THE DAY.

    well that particular bike is stock except for the front fork set up.. before we jumped it, that bike has been used for a few of the desert enduro races here in Australia so it had been proven on the dirt numerous times before hand.

    the xr1200 sportster is the latest big brother to the xr750 that evel kneival used to run with back in the 70's
