    Ready To Ride

    Ok, my engine is in Canada getting Mark U's magic worked on it. I sold my XP. Weather is nice and I have nothing to ride. So I reached for the bat phone, and I will be picking up a left over 2005 RXP in 3 hours. Jarrett has graciously agreed to accompany me for some break-in time today. So I should be on the water in 4-5 hours. I am geeked!

    Thanks guys. I got a little over an hour of breakin time today. It was fun riding a completely stock ski for the first time in a long time. Now I remember why I hate the thumb throttle so much. The new mats are better, but they still suck. The wife made me promise no mods, but she has already requested a finger throttle and new "floor mats" The camel's nose is now under the tent. Just a matter of time until she wants "a little more speed."

    Congrats on the new ride. I just got back from my first ride of the year. The old SC still is churning along. 62.5 MPH with a full tank and last years gas (with Stabil in it) of course 73 temp and 62 water helps.

    Unfortunately, in my roost, it's the "camel's toe" that causes me to "pitch a tent"... and it's just a matter of time before she demands "a little more speed!" hit_it.gif

    Franko, the wife and I are going to ride today. Probably at 4 or 5pm. We have family over early this afternoon. Are you going out for another breakin ride? I also remember you and Jarrett on your last "breakin", one drag race after another!

    LOL Todd. Yeah, "breakin" is a subjective term. I may go out today. Got to do the family Easter stuff, but I am going to try to get out there around 4-5. Check your PM real quick.
