By the Numbers: Seth Enslow vs. Death

Seth Enslow has been synonymous with busting big since he busted up a Suzuki RM250 and himself after sailing 230 feet off the top of a giant sand dune in the original Crusty Demons of Dirt. That was 16 years ago and he's still not afraid of a little pain. Or even a lot, literally caving his head in crash-landing a Service Honda CR500 some 245 ft. after lift-off in 1999. Most attempts at maximum air involve that sort of fortified motocross bike, but after flying 301 ft. at the Fleshwound Films Night of Records in 2008, Seth decided to leave the absolute distance record to guys like mad Aussie Robbie Maddison. There are safer ways to bust big ... like busting bigger than anyone on a Harley! Before Seth cued up his long-travel XR1200-specially fortified for the occasion by Gavin Walker at Quick-Fix Motorcycles in Mildura, Australia-that record was held by Bubba Blackwell, who cleared 20 cars on an XR750 in 1998, beating the amazingly durable 19-car record set by the immortal Evel Knievel in 1971.
