    RIDICULOUS speed claim

    With around 4000 customers a week coming into my business, a LOT of people in town also see me riding at the lake. One guy came in today and said he's seen me out on the water and that his stock Yam SHO has the 2200cc "bigger" engine. I baited him in and asked about his top speed... "Over 100 in big bay." NO FKING WAY! I couldn't call him out though because he spends a lot of money at my store, but I WILL be racing him next time he is out on his stage 7 rocket ship.

    Had guy tell me once his Polaris virage tx would do 120mph.

    I told him to get Guinness books out cause thats a world record!

    Call em out. That's what I do. Then at least you get an awesome set of excuses or you make them look like a joke.

    The fact that he weighs 300lbs+ doesn't help his story

    I got a friend with Ultra 150 and the dream meter reads like 80-83MPH.....his light mods might gain him 2 MPH at the most over stock. Before his mods it was saying upper 70's and flash 80 here and then. Based on my experience on skis when I drive his ski it feels like its about a 65MPH ski and is squirmy as can be on the top end even on glass.

    He still tells everyone its a 80+ MPH ski. He'll even go as far as saying on his phones GPS he has hit 82MPH. I just chuckle and let him dig his hole.


    I keep saying to bring his ski down for a weekend and we'll go riding....never happens.
