    Less Weight = More MPH!

    Hi Gang

    One thing I have been wondering is how much thought has gone into reducing weight? By the way I am not talking about the Ski but the rider!! I have been racing bicycles for more than 20yrs and I think that has kept me in good shape to ride a PWC. One day I went out wearing my heart rate monitor and I burnt of 1,650 calories in 1.5 hours!! Hey this a good line to give the wife or girlfriend

    For those of you who are into racing just think instead spending tens of thosands of dollars first get your fittness level up and weight down and you will gain some serious speed. Then blast your money at the GH toy story

    Sometimes I wish I could be lighter, unfortunately god did not bless me with small bones but I will work with what I have. Trying to play some college football anyway, if I'm under 230lbs at the combine I'll probably get laughed at!

    Shoot me a PM if you want before you go out riding this summer. I'm always looking for someone to ride with, gets a little boring when it's quiet on the water.

    Just FYI, the difference between a full tank of gas and running on "E" is about 2 mph in my experience.

    yeah but how much of that is weight and how much is the difference in riding attitude because of all the weight strictly in the bow?

    I figure about 100 lb and, yes, being over the front probably does make it more influential.

    Annette and I can make a RXT/GTX go faster riding double than single.

    Superman may be faster than a speeding bullet... but not faster than two butts off the back
