    15F ergonomics and two up

    I'm 6-1".. can i ride one comfortably? I have a honda f12x and i'm going to get a second ski. Does the 15F handle two people okay, or does it want to lean or chine walk? Of course i will be modding it if i get it, also.

    thanks,
    Dave

    I am 6'3 and it after riding for an extensive time, my knees start to hurt a little. I dont have experience with the Honda, maybe this weekend I'll give a better assessment.
    We are having a riding party, lots of hondas, some RXP, and Yammies. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to see the different riding styles. Don’t get me wrong, I love my ski, and its all I know, so I can't comment if its more comfey than the Honda. Riding two up is pretty easy as well. Its very stable, I have not had any problems. 3 up, well, then you get a little wobbley.

    Im the same height as you and no, its not very comforable. Get a yamaha model for comfort. I do ride it very hard with alot of wake jumping which obviously makes the ride more uncomfortable.

    my lower back starts to hurt while riding. I have to constantly adjust my body. Standing up doesnt help much since the handles are too low (and I have very long arms).

    thanks guys.
    i'd love to get an fx, but i just dont like the 10,000 rpm all the time.

    probably it's another honda.
