    gpr conversion ski, loose its feel?

    Probably a dumb question but do the gpr conversion skis lose there "raw" feel? I'll try to explain, but other than dirty jokes I'm not the greatest writer...

    When I say raw best way I can explain is my Honda feels like riding a caddilac and my gp1200r feels like I jumped on a wild banshee's back. That's just feeling. In a race the Honda jumps out instantly in holeahot and edges it by a few mph on top end, BUT I almost still prefer the "I dare you to throttle it" feel the gpr has.

    I guess I'm asking since conversion skis are now 4 stroke, did it loose its "fun" and scary factor(even if its not scary in reality)









    Hear about the two gay lawyers that tried each other??

    Holeshot on a 4 stroke gpr is a whole other ball game. Depending on which motor you use, the sho motor has some weight and adds stability but also offers more speed potential.

    The conversion skis are a Wow factor all the time. Nothing cadillac feeling at all. Its a great time on the water with them.

    of course you understand that this ski with the turbo is a far cry from a 215 with a stock charger or even an x charger. Keiths machine is truly a beast that should be ridden by brave folks only. I would do it in a heart beat please can i ride it?
