The crusty demon of Dirt and OG, Seth Enslow the long distance jumper achieved a long time goal- jumping a dirt bike over 300 feet. Seth thought it was time to take a different line and take it back to the famous Harley-Davidson.

On the second of March 2010 he was in Australia to remake history riding the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle. His bike has been modified by Gavin Walker and his son- Jack Walker who was the test pilot for most of the modifications. Jack has jumped the bike over 150 feet himself when running the tests. The new Harley- Davidson XR 1200 Sportster has been beefed up front and back. In addition, some motocross handle bars were added and the exhaust was cut off by Seth himself! Enslow launched the Sportster a little over 90 km/h, then travelling through the air, reaching 183 feet and 7 inches- the longest jump ever recorded by a Harley-Davidson rider. He sure showed Even Knievel (the previous holder of the record) how thing are done!

Check out the magnificent jump in the video below!
