What to purchase
So I've gotten rid of all my 2 smokes and have been thoroughly enjoying my 4 strokes.
Im wanting to add to what I have.
An older Kawi 250-it's been extremely reliable but everybody hates the nose dive during idle with 3/4 to a full tank.
An FZR, which is by far my favorite. It does everything extremely well. I like it in the big water, local lakes and it runs on regular. How minty can you get right?
Well now I need 2 more, they have to be reliable and long lasting, our weekend rides on the Delta weekends are roughly 400 miles.
i'm really liking the brakes and other amenities of the RXT just wondering if the x is worth the extra grand.
Should I go with another FZR? Boring in terms of gadgets but looks great and does all that I need very comfortably. Perfect ergonomics. Will I be able to say that of the SD in s year or so.
The closed loop system bothers me simply because I've seen guys punch holes in the ride plates and the fun is over.
The other ski I'm looking for needs to be;
I'd like to see 60mph
what two skis would you guys suggest?

Strangest thing, Al asking which ski to buy.
X ski is a good one.
300X like 250 only more playful, more gas, rip your arms off.
FXSHO good ski.
Hell there all good.
Did you sell the Virage?
Edit: Opps missed something there Al ...(n/a)
STX15F is an excellent, reliable, efficient, good ski.
VXR/VXS are good. FXHO same but slower.
GTI/X are good.
If it's N/A takes above stuff outta the equation.
I would stick with STX15F as I know you will get excellent help, if ever needed, with it thru friends. (99% you wont need it anyways, it's that good)
If you want and economical ski with potential to haul a bit more butt, but will sip when not pulling the trigger, look at left over '09 Honda F15X. (turbo) Can be had new for about 9-10K, and you can still get warranty, not that you'll ever need it.

FXHO would be a good choice for a NA.

So, I'm pretty decided on the RXT for my next SC ski, question is x model or not.
Bars are cool, dash upgrade is nice but I can plug in the module for 100 bucks so I guess the real question is the handlebar upgrade worth 900 bucks?
The N/A I'm still lost, I'll check the Yami again but if I can get a Honda extremely reasonably, I'm all in. It'll be the "loaner" ski.
The 2strokes are all gone. Just can't have them when all I have to do is hit the gas station and fill the tank with regular.
It makes our 400 mile weekend easy.
Wish everything was as reliable, strong and easy on the wallet like the Yami.

That GTI 155 looks real nice as well.
I'd hate to think I'm going to buy 2 new sd's but that's how it's looking tight now
