    95+ GPR bucking rider

    I heard that this happened at the Spring 2009 Hydrodrags, but was unaware that it was caught on tape. Howard (rab1) dismounted at over 95 MPH. Just a reminder to BE SAFE.

    A fast social ski ia fun at 80 to 83mph no need for more than that.


    Leave the rest for drag or race meetings 90+mph is dangeruos if caught in teh wrong spot..

    It was actually at 100mph and the upgraded M8 grate bolts ripped out of the aluminum shoe.

    The forces these boats go thru over 95 is unbelievable. Always a price to pay no matter how much preperation.

    BTW the boat has been faster then that with no bucking issues.

    +1 , 90mph is insane. i couldnt even begin to imagine what that type of speed feels like. Much less being thrown at that speed. Im happy with 80-83mph too. No need for more then that.

    Even at 80 you can be seriously hurt. I know someone pitched at 80 and was patialy paralized for a little while. I know when running mine near 80 it doesnt seem fast till you hit a wave wrong.
