    Ejected at 65 Mph on the Sho today!

    All I can say is wow! I'm lucky to escape that with no injuries. Just got home from the ER Cat Scan checked out O.K. I know many others on here have had serious injuries from crashes at these speeds especially with the FZR/S bucking issue. Not sure if that happened to me or if I hit a wake too fast,but I'm just grateful to be alive and in one piece with out major injury, just a sore upper back and neck with some stiffness. This was an eye opener,it could of been much worse. Be careful out there guys!

    I'm glad you're okay. These toys can certainly be dangerous.

    I feel I have been extremely lucky so far. We should not underestimate or take these skis speeds for granted.

    Glad your ok but this will just add to the hype... bucked by an FZR... I still don't get it.
    I ran both of my skis stock for months before I upgraded the grates on them. '09 FZS and '09 FZR and '09 VX Cruiser. I never had an issue and I'm the kind of guy that traditionally has "issues". Modifies everything... My 335i has 440 HP on a dyno with tune, downpipes, ecu, etc... and my ski is the same.. I've had zero issues and really kinda wonder..... nuff said...

    Looped, it was a SHO, not FZR/FZS. There hasn't been an issue with bucking on them, so i really doubt it was a problem with the ski, but probably rider induced. I've been "bucked" numerous times, but recognize that it was my own fault. It's like if you ride a dirt bike straight and level at moderate speeds, you probably won't crash, but once you start going fast, hitting jumps and doing tricks, you WILL end up dumping it.

    Sea Doo RX-Ps are also known to "buck". Anything with an enlarged pump inlet is at an increased risk. But I know of probably 5 local guys running completely stock FZR's and FZS's with absolutely no issues, and I even warned them.

    Glad you're ok man. I got myself thrown off at 65 before and it certainly woke me up to the dangers of these things.
