Some of SuperJoe's world record titles:

• 1983 A world record breaking motorcycle (M/C) jump over the whirling (steel) blades of full-size helicopters. The previous record was 2 choppers, ramp-to-ramp. Joe accomplished his record jumping ramp-to-ground, (without the aid of a landing ramp), traveling at over 90 miles per hour (m.p.h.), off a custom built 63 ft. long, 14 ft. high 'take-off ramp, Joe cleared 'the blades' of the third helicopter by less than 12 inches. This record (still) stands to this day, for jumping 146 ft. through the air, over these obstacles, ('active' helicopters, lined-up side-by-side).

• 1988 The highest, and farthest motorcycle jump(s) on record. 2-Building-to-building jumps. Again, World
Records are unchallenged to this day. First jump, performed solo, by one of Joe's "Team SuperStunts- 'crime fighting' members, known as  "The Bandit" .  Second jump performing with "The Guardian".

• 1996 The World's first "Blindfolded" (vehicular) motorcycle jump in entertainment history. Jumping at 40 m.p.h., off a take-off ramp 10 feet high, 'Super Joe" flew through the night air, through a ring of fire blindfolded - Guided to the take-off ramp, by a voice through a radio communicator on Joe's helmet. With the 'take-off" ramp only 4 feet wide, ·Super Joe- hit his target, 'dead center as he jumped the 30 foot gap between the ramps blindfolded.

• 1996 An earth ramp-to-earth ramp jump over the whirling blades of Ritter fans (wind machines used
in the motion picture ''Twister''), with one arm tied behind his back.   With the top (protective) cages removed, blades exposed, Super Joe falls short and lands into 'the blades!'... And walks away unhurt! Why? Because he's "Super Joe"!   

• 1998 Breaking the record for the highest motorcycle jump(s). Guinness World Record for the highest building-to-
building jump, performed at night in Downtown Los Angeles, twice.  First performed by Super Joe Reed, then performed my Super Joe's- teammate Jumpin Jamie Pamintuan, the first building-to-building jump, in history, to be performed by a female!

• 1999 Set 'multiple' world records, in one jump. 1 & 2 becoming the only 'father-and-son' team to jump together, ramp-to-ramp ... while "blindfolded.   The youngest (paid) professional daredevil in history. "Super Joey" Reed was 5-years old when he made the jump with his Super Dad.

• 2000 Setting yet another world record, with a new and very dangerous twist to an old standard ... Bungee jumping.   Super Joe- creates and executes "The Bungee Jump from Hell" - Joe attaches a 200 foot long bungee cord to his feet and jumps out of an airborne helicopter.  Estimating/projecting the rebound/recoil distance length of the cord, he performs the jump directly over the whirling blades of another helicopter on the ground.  His head & body coming approximately 20 feet from the blades.   (This is the only time in history the original stunt has been attempted).
Super Joe's protégé, Jumpin' Jamie Pamintuan jumped 2 times.

2001, "Super Joe" Reed, "Jumpin' Jamie" Pamintuan and "Holeshot Heidi" Henry set 24 new world motorcycle jumping records, in less than 24-hours.  These records represent the first and only time that motorcyclist(s) have ever attempted to jump directly over the blades of an airborne helicopter and 3 jumpers flying at one-time, in a crisscross pattern over a Jet Ranger helicopter.

2002 A new short-distance motorcycle jumping record with a ramp-to-ramp jump, 3-foot wide take-off ramp, and a 3-foot wide landing ramp, 'Super Joe' jumps over the landing ramp for a distance of 41 feet, jumping though a ring of fire blindfolded and, with his body set on fire with only a voice through a radio communicator in his helmet giving him directions to the take-off ramp.
