Hello, New to the forums
Hello ladies and gents,
After reading around the forums here for a few weeks I thought I would jump in...lol..
We have 2 waverunner 2007 vx sports, we like to do the touring part and an occasional small jump when the right wave comes by. We so far have been all around the lake mead area of Nevada and Arizonia. They are great for me, wife and 2 kids. What beauty one can find when on them, most will never see that stuff in a car! The narrows in lake mead is awesome!
Anyway, wanted to say hello and enjoyed reading most of your posts! David

Welcome David. I have not been on Mead with my ski yet. I spend my Summers just south of Parker on the river. I spend a week every April in Havasu. Take a trip down to laughlin and launch head south through Needles and then through Topak gorge it is an awesome trip.

Thanks everyone, and i may do that trip ( a question also)
from laughlin, thanks for the tip!! sounds like a good ride and I will try it soon.
Being the owner of a large web site and 3 forums ( about Bulldogs..the dog, not football team...lol) i understand each of you are busy, but if any of you have a moment to help with a question I would appreciate it.
I can't seem to find any info on this, what range would you say i could go on the vx sports on a tank of gas going roughly 25 mph??? i don't want to get myself stranded ever, and some of the trips we're planning may get rather long, so I was wondering if anyone knew approx.. Thanks for your time! Thanks for teh welcome also! David

On a full tank, going 25, by yourself, on calm waters, you should be able to get about 110-120 miles easily. If you were going 30-35mph,(same conditions), you would get better mileage and most likely get to travel about 135-155 miles.
I have an 05' VX110 deluxe. Many times, on choppy ocean waters, fully packed storage, full tank of gas, and just me riding, I can go from 120 to 155 miles. I alternate between full throttle and just cruising at 35-40. When traveling endlessly for miles and looking down at your gauges, you would swear that the fuel gauge is broken, because it hasn't moved for the last hour.
My Deluxe has the security remote, which allows me to engage the low rpm mode. This mode allows me to pull the throttle all way but limits my rpm's to 5000-5500. This saves alot of gas on long rides and makes it very comfortable on the hands and wrist. The VX sports don't come with that option, but if you just keep your speed to 30-40 mph you will go forever on that machine.
Just PLEASE practice riding and charting your fuel consumption within a safe riding enviroment and get comfortable on longer rides. Don't go out riding and run out of gas in the middle of nowhere! Anything can change your fuel performance/distance, (bad gas, worn plugs, bent impeller..anything!)
