    Thumbs up O.K., standup guys...I get it!!!

    Spent the day on the river, (air temperature 72, eat your heart out!), and the last few hours I rode my MSX 150 standing up, up to speeds of 55 mph.

    I have got to say:

    Standup riders...NOW I GET IT!!! Never had this much fun, before, without my clothes being off....

    Now, I don't know if there is some sorta rule about riding a 'couch' this way...or if I just voided some fine print in the warranty...but the ski felt fine in this posture, and turns were a lot more exhilirating.

    Thinking about getting the 'real' thing....

    Don't forget the Hurricane, you can still sit but standing is EXTREMELY doable. Oh and most of the stand up guys will still let you hang with them. LOL

    Just the info I need...it can double as the 'bride's' ride, when she begs to go along!

    What is a fair price for a Hurricane?

    Mine looks identical to this and about the same condition. I paid 800, installed an updated CDI and fuel system. She runs perfect and we had it on the river for 5 days at Havasu, first craft everybody wanted to take for a spin.

    Now if you want a stand up, you have a few choices but I don't think the wife will like it during the cold months.

    Meaning a 'wet' ride, I assume.

    Your probably right...even though I bought her a wetsuit, she will probably insist on using me as a windbreak!

    Standing up the only way to go fast. But once it comes time to turn, you better get one with the craft, and sit down.

    So that big pad in the middle is meant for sitting? I learn something new on here everyday. I may try that sometime.

    Sitting is relative. You can't sit on a Polaris 2 seater hull, lol. You can on the 3 seaters.

    Rocky Road, if you want a stand up, get the real thing, imo? Good cmpliment to what you already have. Kawasaki 650SX can be had for a few hundred dollars. It has pretty good bottom end power. I wouldn't get anything under a 650 though. The 750 Kawis are dogs on the bottom end and make it harder to ride for a beginner. The Yamaha Super Jet is a good choice too but they are a little more than Kawi 650SX. Great bottom end and are funner to ride. There is no way I could ride a Kawi 750 withou mods done to it. I do favor bottom end punch and acceleration so that explains it. I do however like the handling of the Kawis with their lean in and lean over style vs. Yamaha's flatter turning.
