    Anyone ride this past weekend?

    Just curious if any one got to ride this past weekend? I did for about 40 minutes but that was all I could take. I did run into another ultra 250. He had it in the water about 10 minutes and it stopped running. I pulled him back to his landing and he was highly upset. I can't say that I could blame him..

    Maybe the new Ultra will take some pressure off the Sea-doo guys who had the prior reputation for "needing a tow"

    55mph, I have not run any faster, Just got one hour on it Sat. I am like Richard, I like to follow the manufactures recommendations, I guess I get that from being in the car business for so many years.

    I took half a day off Friday to go to Lake Underhill (where Skip did his tests), Sat. bigger lake Moss Park and Sunday InterCoastal in Titusville and hit 63 mph on GPS (wasn't trying for top speed).

    Any idea what was wrong with the ski that made it shut down? Wonder if that guy is a part of this forum and will post his findings.

    Can you say "Cold water seizure" or "improper break in"
    I see some people hop on skis and go like a bat out of hell, and see them getting towed in 10 minutes later. Well, we can only hope the guy messed it up himself.

    The water was cold, I actually let mine idle for five minutes leaving my house, then only ran about 20 to 25 for a mile or so.
