word of warning
I'll get to that warning in a sec...
While on the water today I came across an '08 250x...moving pretty good...far side of the Black Water....moving north. I was headed in the same direction on the other side of the channel. The shores closed together and we came abreast...he looked over...it was on.
A mile went by with neither having a great advantage...the head wind had picked up and the wave action was in the 1' + range. We made a hard left turn at a marker and he pulled ahead by 20-30yds...he kept to his side of the lake though...I drifted wide...came to the near side in the lee of a tree line...found flat water and went into a superman. I pulled him by 20yds before the hard right at the next marker put me comfortably in front by 50-60yds easy.
I ran full up for another mile before I ran outa water...he caught up and asked the usual questions...I did steer him here.
Now for the warning to all the young and inexperienced.
When going superman...it's for flat water...it's best if you get out of it before the rough sht catches you by surprise and dumps your ass over the handle bars at 60+ mph....heh.
This ultra rider did just that. He must never have seen it done before. He'd earlier seen me pass and tried to do the same thing on the way out. On the return I was runnin down wind though and pulled him from the start and never saw him till I found my mrs...pulled a u-turn and he was floating beside his ski with a sore neck.
Live and learn.
