    How economical is the GPR1300R?

    I am looking at buying this.

    http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/boa/1819392886.html

    I really need to be able to take two people on it comfortably. I don't ride with two all the time, but its nice to have the capability to do so when needed. Is it easy to ride with two people through the no-wake zones and just cruising around?

    I am coming from a 95 SL750 and that is pretty difficult to ride two people on. Thanks for the help in advance.

    You know its a 2-stroke so you will pay more for miles riding than a 4 stroke, plus the oil thats needed to be added from time to time.Its a 2-seater as you well know, but has a wt capacity of 353lbs.To put two full grown adults you will get going to some degree, but you'll pushing that pump way down in the water, acceleration will be weak. Now a 100lb passenger will work well....

    Alright, thanks. Not what I wanted to hear, but better to find out this way rather than buying it and not being happy. Thanks!

    If you want to fit two people comfortably, look at the three seat hulls, or the newer (and larger) 2 seat models.

    Well I don't ride with two people all the time. Only maybe 10% of the time and the combined weight of me and my passenger would be right around 350. Once my Polaris is going its alright on the water, obviously can't go as fast but still do-able. I just want something that will be a little bit steadier. Like I can't take two people through a no-wake zone on my 750. Will the 1300R be able to do that? How about riding on rougher water with just one person? I usually ride on calmer rivers, but once a year on lake of the ozarks which my Polaris is pretty much impossible to ride down there.

    the GPR doesn`t like 2 people going thru no wake zones or going slow... it really is a one rider ski...
