    Great ride today

    Well I had a great ride today. My wife and I doubled on the F12x and rode 70 GPS miles today and only used a 1/4 tank of fuel!!!! Though we rarely hit 60 MPH we cruised at 35 MPH for most of the trip. I still cannot get over the fuel milage we got doubled today. I also got some great PICS wich I will post tomarrow. 40 Hours on the F12x with 0 problems and a very happy customer!!!!

    I notice the same thing. The more easy I am on the throttle, the more fuel efficient my Honda is. I remember talking a 40 mile or so cruise and only using one bar.

    Those are impressive numbers.

    There are faster/better handling skis out there but as an all round solid package the Honda is hard to beat.

    thats why i just bought another turbo f12 to keep in florida..the honda is not a performance monster but it sure is a dependable fuel efficient and still performance oriented ski..the best all around i've ever had. I thought about a non turbo for ocean touring but my friends that have had both talked me out of it. I pick up the 04 turbo next week. My sig tells what i'll have for the next few yrs.

    I did the same thing Friday. Rode 2hrs no stop at about 5k most of the time and only moved it one bar. I did have some wide open runs when I found smooth water. It still suprizes me how well it uses fuel. I've also noticed that if you do play hard and leave it pinnned it does like to use that gas alot faster. Tit for tat I quess. I love it either way.

    I love my Honda. 59-60 mph is perfect for me.

    It is 30 miles from where I launch to the dam. As you can see I still have a full tank of fuel. That Pic was taken for a freind of mine that did not belive me!!!
