80 to 100 mph on the water in one of those boats does seems so fast. I guess because you ass is bascally sitting on the water. I have done 60 on a Seadoo and it doesn't seem near as fast as 80 in one of those boats.

I can't imagine 120 mph on snow. That has to be exciting to say the least.

Took a guided tour around Key West years ago on a Yamaha 1000 cc craft. The guides will make you fly to keep up. Thereís a spot thatís like a lake of glass itís so smooth. They let us fly around for about 20 minutes. I think I maxed it out at a little over 60. Gulf side is smooth in comparison to the Atlantic side which is choppy as fk. Not fun flying around the choppy side, especially with a kid on the back.

Morning Vegas.

It is exciting yet a bit terrifying.

To me:
Memorial Day is a somber day. A day to honor our service persons that paid the ultimate price. And to those that served and have passed.

Independence Day is a day to celebrate what our founding fathers, and brave people who fought the British, risked their lives when they declared independence. What brave people they were! I wish we had more of them today.

My second sled (Iíve had 4) was a Thunder Cat 900 with 156 picks. On packed snow 120 was all it had if it was cold enough. At 115 the windshield collapsed. It was always fun to make that happen.

Ditch bangers though and my friends were tired of digging me out of snow drifts. The thing weighed 500 lbs +. That and at -30 c a 900 triple was like starting a 350 with a rope.

Sold it and bought a ZRT 600

We were in DR years ago with a couple and we rented two of them. It was so choppy we were jumping over each other. Super dumb thinking about it now but any kind of speed was impossible.

We had one of the owners ride out to remind us not to be too close to each other. Iím guessing he didnít see the stupid stunts.

You are 100% correct.

I've done 2mph on a 700lb. 4x4 4wheeler thru the swamps.
Briar vines make you bleed like you were doing 4mph.

6mph is fun.

Decided to go look at the 94 Vette. Sent a message to the seller about when and where could I check it out. She said that she sold it last night.


The search goes on.

If you want a garage queen, lemme know

Current owner and price look nothing like the 94 you were looking at
