    i actually had one over the summer that i sold to my friend in New Jersey that lives on a private lake.... he was in despate search for a wet bike and i knew where i could get one and he was excited as hell about it.

    i may even be able to get my hands on one more wetbike... i just don't know if the other is in running condition or not... they look like a handful to learn how to ride

    They made something called the JETBIKE in the late 90's. It did 60 and had the same feel.

    I currently own 4 wetbikes (down from 12) and they're a blast to ride. More fun than a sit-down and totally different from a stand-up. Like riding a motorcycle on water.

    The Jetbike was a miserable failure - with lots of shady financials surrounding it - please see their website (www.aquajet.com) - and handles NOTHING like a wetbike however. Jetbikes use a rear-steer nozzle like on a standup or sitdown pwc. So, you end up with a bike that'll turn from both ends like a skateboard (difficult to go in a straight line). If you watch any of their videos you'll see what I mean. Wetbikes have a fin on the ski that keeps the rear going straight - and will only slide during an extreme manuver (a fun one I might add).

    Riding a wetbike is like riding a streetbike on the water. They're not the fastest, but you can lean them over far enough to drag you off of the side - while you're pulling several g's.

    There are quite a few bikes ready-to-ride that are for sale down here (Texas). I've got a couple, and another friend of mine has a few over in Houston. Prices range from around 800 to well over 10,000 for a pair. If there's any interest, drop me a PM.

    Hey, we're having our 3rd annual New Year's ride this year. Have been thinking about places other than Lake Austin or Decker Lake. Was gonna check out the site that the Rogue Jets guys launch at.

    Will keep you posted as to where we go . . . and when.
