    Jim's Performance Ride Videos

    You will find two videos of the ride on 4/14/2012 here... http://www.iwannajetski.com/#!videos/vstc5=jims-ride-2

    They are different. One is set to music the other is more raw focusing on the riders. Jim had his family and about 30 riders including a 100mph ski.

    Enjoy

    I love to see the comeraderie and how the different skis ride in the water compared to each other.
    I notice that boats seem to throw a larger wake at no wake speeds of three or four knots than they would wide open. Have you tried this argument or are you afraid that they would just come back with "Okay, TWO knots max speed!"? (which is near impossible because a lot of currents run two knots)
    That Honda had a load! How fast was the big guy able to get that going? Did the VXR ever get to open it up in choppy water and how'd it do?
    Thanks for posting!

    That Honda does 66 with him on it no problem. As for the VXR I couldn't tell you how fast that one went but there are a lot of posts in the forums that talk about their speed both stock and upgraded. I watched it a little bit while we were in the rough and it handled very well. He was able to take the waves as comfortably as my FX.

    Thanks. The Hondas are great machines (I hope they start producing again)! Is there anything special about that one that gets it to 66?

    To be honest...when you said that boat didn't know what a no-wake zone is, looks like NONE of you know what a no-wake zone is. You were all flying through there. Good video though, thanks for sharing.
