    TXsportswomn's 300x Initial Ride

    Well guys we will have a member who crossed over to the green side. She wanted something faster and more comfortable than her FX. Purchased a 2011 green 300x. Not saying anything was wrong with the FX. Great reliable ski that barely uses any gas.
    We broke it in this weekend. 9 hours between Friday and Today. 140 miles. 2 tanks. 15.1 gallons for 64.9 miles Friday and didn't fill it up today but 71.0 miles and got to the fuel warning at 61.3 so actually got pretty good range today.

    Bone stock-Sea Level- 76 degrees- 86% humidity- Trim 1 bar above mid trim. I just love this winter we are having in South Louisiana

    67.6 mph @ 7500 rpms

    Will not be a race ski so will quite possibly stay just as it is. I will have to really try to holdback my urges to modify it.

    She is all smiles in all 3 Pics; it is always good to see someone happy on the water. God knows I am happy there myself! JB

    John you should have seen her face when she was finally able to get on it. I actually do break ins and did it on her ski. She was hating me for it but we did it. Just cruised through the swamp and the lakes were so rough we had to take it easy there. She has ridden my ski but never really got on it so this was her first time running these speeds.

    Cool deal. I think she will like it. Those are great skis, as you know GL.

    Great! Mine got hold of my ski and now races everyone she meets on the water. I'll be praying for you not to mod this one. Congrats!

    Making some converts eh GL.

    You gonna make it down here again this year, or am I gonna have to wait til June to get a ride on your mean green machine? We were bummed you couldn't make it down for the drags. I bet you would've done real well in Pro Stock.

    WELL, then you should get her one of her own! I now have 2 skis and love both of them, but for different reasons. GL told me to just take it easy on the long rides where there are few places for petro, but then he remembered who he was talking to. I just do not have the will power to go slow. My Yamaha is still quick, but not like the 300. Think I will take the Yamaha on the long distance rides and the 300 on speed rides. I have to give attention to both my babies.....
