Maybe, he ought to be made to pay for his father's debts from the 1976 failed jump. Evel left Twin Falls owing over a million dollars, and never paid for the ramp,the helicopter that picked him up out of the river/canyon, his hotel bill, bar bill, or security people. Let alone, the bill for the 3,300 National Guard put on duty to deal with the bikers, tourists, and rainbow people. 3 people died at Evel's jump (2 hit by cars, and one fell into the canyon), plus several food places went out of business due to biker clubs taking them over for the week. Robbie tried to get permission several year's ago and was turned down due to the past unpaid expenses, and the trouble it would bring to the area. He was told that he could jump if he would put down a million dollar bond, and Robbie walked away. I was here in 1976 and really don't want to go through it again...
