Thumbs up That ROCKS!

Bo Knows,

That sled looks awesome. I've got an XCR 800 and I really have been a Yamaha fan for years. 117 with some left? How was the acceleration? I've heard that they are torque monsters!!! Nice picture...I just wish we had some snow over this way to ride on. We're at 4" for the year...at least a foot from normal at this time of the year. Wednesday the 8th is supposed to be 50+ degrees

Nice sled and let us know the actual top speed once you get it broke in and wound up!! How accurate is the speedo just out of curiosity?

Speedo was reading 129, radar gun says 117, just like boating !! LOL !! And very funny you Florida guys ! I know it's not quite as exciting as boating but us Northern guys have to have something thrilling to do during the winter months. Come on up here & try it sometimes, It's quite a rush. The fastest I've ever gone on water !!

Just 1 question: How hard is it to drive one of those things?

No, I get it. It is a jet ski! But, how the hell does it push water? Guess that thing underneath is some sort of paddle wheel... And the ski thingies up front... bet they are a handful in the chop!


Mongo (in the Virgin Islands, 87 air, 82 water (and that is getting cold by our standards!)

Easier to drive than a boat & just as dangerous. 5 fatalities in NYS already this year.

Believe it or not these things go for miles over open water !!
