    Cape Fear River Ride 6/17/2013 Videos

    Yeah, I am slow getting videos edited and posted.

    A group of modern day cowboys met at Castle Hayne, NC to launch our skis for a day of riding the black waters of the Cape Fear River. OK, OK, when you see the photos at the beginning you will think it was an AARP convention. Tommy Jordan put the ride together and hired local legend and experienced guide SMOKEWAGON from the forums to lead us through the maze of water. He kept us from getting lost and never being seen again. I would like to suggest to Tommy that he double SMOKEWAGON's pay next time. We had a mess of Yamaha's, a Sea Doo, a Polaris, and a couple of Honda's.

    My camera case managed to get condensation inside so you will notice that. I think it came from constantly getting sprayed with water from riding behind that group of Yamaha's. Dang, those things are fast. My steering is creaking and just about drove me crazy hearing it. Must work on that. I am calling both of those special effects. Hope you enjoy.

    Part 1 goes from the launch to the first no wake zone.

    I have to finish up with the video files that I have. I'll have more soon. There could be some racing out of the no wake zone plus a ski on the bank......

    I had an extra tank under my front storage compartment.

    Part 2 of our Cape Fear River ride. My camera case is stilled fogged up and my steering is still creaking. We took a break and then continued our ride. SMOKEWAGON ran us through some twisty trails, fun stuff. After the no wake zone we had to wind them up a little and I learned that Superman does indeed ride a Gpr. At the end, we end up with one on the bank. No injuries and nothing torn up.

    It's all I can do to catch a glimpse of those Yamaha drivers. My camera below, is the only way I can get video of them.
