    World Record 87.5 mph PWC

    Has anyone gone faster? If so then why not get it certified by the A.P.B.A, U.I.M & Guiness Book of World Records and topple Riva's GP1200R that currently holds this? Can't understand why someone hasn't done this yet...or are the 90 speeds not legit (trying to stir the pot to get you guys to get recognized and also plug this website in the process).

    I remember reading something about this, and yes 87.5 mph has been broken, and it has to with the cost of getting recognized, something like $10K.

    I can't believe people would pass on notoriety! Especially after seeing a lot of people's signatures and avatars just reeking with vanity and soliciting their vane websites of "look what I can do." Still no takers? I'm calling you out just short of momma jokes here. Come on people, you guys hold a bug festival in the swamps and travel thousands of miles to piss in the wind and see who's bigger so why fall short of the big time? Have I touched any nerves yet? Is the motivation going to help or get me thrown off the site and reduced to scraping for casino tokens in the classified section?

    I heard Jerry makes a cagillion dollars on his Online Store giving us great discounts and deals by selling cheaper than the manufacturer itself - I'm sure he can fork out the money for his own benefit. I can't think of anything else to say so I'm just going to go for it...

    Could be the $10,000 it costs to get your name in the Guiness Book that holds most people back, including me.

    Many have far surpassed 87 mph and I have been 94+. (soon to be faster)

    My gps and the radar gun at the Mudbug Nationals is confirmation enough for me. I personally don't care to pay the big bucks to read my name in the Guiness Book

    Well that's good enough for me...so long as I can say that the fastest PWC rider responded to my post. I'll never wash this keyboard again.

    I hear you though, say you spend the money but it could be 1-upped with the next mod.

    I think I have a clip for that too...

    These days I am not even sure Jerry's is the fastest. Hell there is a stock motored GPR running 104 mph.
