    What did you guys do for fun before you owned a jetski ?

    I was primarily a 4-wheeler junky. I rode tracks, got used to big air, started feeling sore more and more after every race. Nothing proffesional, just a local track, pay 10 bucks and try and beat everyone that shows up in your class. I had a TRX250R.......man that was a ride. Never had a second thought on a jetski. I also was doing drag racing at the same time. Again, nothing proffesional, just bragging rights. So as luck would have it, this guy comes to look at this beat up camaro I bought for 200 bucks, got it running for 100, cleaned it up alot, made it look good. I was asking 900 for it and this guy really wanted it bad but he had no cash. He said he had a SeaDoo HX for trade.......didn't even know what it was . I checked on it on youtube and other sites and apparantly it was a bad ass ski. I go look at the next day and it was clean and started right up. I figured why not, if I didn't like it, I can always sell it for 1800 like everyone else was asking for that year.....and this one looked better. So now its ride time, and now mind you, I have never ridden a ski. Man was I shocked. I was glad I had TRX experience because it used everybit of me to stay on that thing. It railed, I loved it, so then the flock started growing from there. The best thing I loved about getting into skis is the wave jumping. WOW was I missing it out. I had to learn how to land them and that come pretty fast. So the 95 HX was sold to buy 2 ski's a 96 GSX and a 93 XP for my son. The wife got the 05 RXT 6 months later, So I saved some more after fixing all the hurricane damage and managed to scrape enough for the 05 RXP. We keep the RXT and RXP for bay riding and the GSX and the XP get wave jumping on the gulf.........oh I forgot to mention, I got 6 ski's from the storm that were given to me. The previous owners were just too preoccupied to want to mess with them, I salvaged pumps, motors, cabling and went EBAY crazy selling parts

    a quad..is going to be the next toy we just got our 16 year old his first quad..he didnt want a bike...my wr 450 is turned back into a ftr woods bike..but quads and bikes don necisarrily like the same places to ride..looking at a used raptor 700 ...a 450 would be fine but i want reverse..for rec riding ..looks like you can get one fuel injected aluminum frame for about 3500 to 4000..silly to buy new they are worth half in 2 years...

    I switched to skis cause it was cheaper, and it keeps me off the streets...
