    Lightbulb Need help deciding...GP or WBII

    Alright, i have two options and need to decide

    What kind of rider am i? I like to have fun, jump but yet still have some speed.

    The WBII is a 96. He says low hours, the thing has filters, ride plate, primer kit and has been jetted. Looks like in good condition and comes with a nice karavan trailer..$1800...

    The GP is a 97 GP1200 with i think 66 hours. Mint condition, i know the guy and its been with him and our other relatives for MANY years. Comes with a nice trailer as well. $3000...

    I have driven the GP before, and i LOVE it.
    The WBII i havent, but i kinda want a two seater wtih more power.

    Help guys!

    Oh and hello, 1st post

    He has a valid point most GP1200's are like riding a motocros bike riding conditions and set up make a huge dif.

    The bounce can be fixed but not everyone can fix it.
    I can tell you my 97 has no bounce and is rock solid to the water.
    My 99 has a more conventional set up and is a wilder ride which can be fun too.

    Wave blasters are turn and burn and jump so is the GP but more on top

    If you can get a mint GP for $3000 jump on it there hard to find.

    great deal with trailer and with those low hours... youll find more use for and on the gp ... its bounce is fixable with proper set up... the blaster two is a looser ride than the gp... you'll ride it more of 'on the edge'...

    lets say in motorcyle terms, IMT, the blaster is 125 motocross, where the gp1200 is a bigger 250 trail/trials bike...and the gpr... well... 500 group !!!
