In two separate instances, two thrill-seekers have attempted to be the first to backflip a Harley-Davidson XR1200. Australia’s Kain Saul took the honors on November 27th in Sydney with American Chuck Carothers making his attempt on November 28th in Prague. Saul’s success is believed to be the first time a complete backflip has been accomplished on any full-size street motorcycle.
