    I don't know I've always ridden sea-doos because that's what my relatives in the Caribbean have owned. Last summer I rode the RXT model and it was amazing. 215bhp, it goes 70mph, which is amazing on water. I highly recommend it.

     
  3. Jet ski's what?
     
  4. there's a couple of them that accelerate faster than a 360 Ferrari. And that = whoa.
     
  5. i saw that thing too. never read it <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/PnutSpecial.gif"></A>
     
  6. Sea-Doo's performance models are nice. Get the supercharged motor, that's the one that will do the 4-second 0-60 dashes.

    Technically "jet ski" is a vehicle you ride standing up, such as the original Kawasaki Jet Ski.

    The past three weekends I have been riding my friend's Kawasaki STX-12 and that thing is just the funnest toy ever. It might "only" have 130hp but I reached 60mph with the wind pushing me and it felt twice as that. They're really great toys. I would love to ride one of those supercharged beasts though.

    Here's the link to the one I have ridden:

  8. i love to jetski, but don't know anything about brands though.
     
  9. yeah, i think i might just get a cheap one (ie under 5 grand) to start off with, and see how i go from there
     
  10. I've got a 1998 Bombardier SeaDoo GTX and with a 130 hp engine, it's quite fast.
    I took that model because it's a 3 seater and also got a reverse. And towing skiers with it is a breeze.

    And it's a blast to drive too.
     
  11. I couldn't imagine it ever being worth it to buy one yourself. Just rent / borrow. You'd get sick of it if you owner it, and then you'd be kicking yourself for buying one.
     
  12. this is mine
     
  13. Wow look at that leg. Its whiter than the ski
     
  14. do you do wheelies?
     
  15. That IS mine!<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
     
  16. do you do wheelies?
     
  17. It's quicker to 50 mph than a Ferrari? OMG, so is like every litre bike ever.
     
  18. Actually, I never tried.
     
  19. once i decided to showoff and landed a indy nosebone super stylish

  21. sea doo are the shit. Hondas are nice too but their expensive as hell.
     
  22. Should let your sons drive it.
     
  23. you lying bastard
     
  24. Jet skis are extremely fun, the major problems are the gas and inability to carry a bunch of people. But yeah if you get a big one that seats 3 you can do tubing and water skiing, plus have all the fun of playing in the waves/wake.

    The reason I quoted you, though, is because i wanted to ask what you use the reverse for on a jetski?
     
  25. Renting jet ski's is really pricey, if you plan on going several times a year you're better off buying. Also it really doesn't seem like it would get boring, you probably have never ridden one if you say that.
