    Big Guy... 2006 or 2007 RXP (handlebars different?)? Buying tomorrow.

    Hey Everyone,

    Now... I know everyone is going to say "Get an RXT" or a boat, but I desire an RXP. I currently maintain and ride an 06'F-12X and an 05' R-12X. I like the R-12X a LOT more. I ride on mostly smooth, inland lakes (8 different good sized lakes connected to each other via rivers).

    Quick question... I'm freakin' 6'3" 335, and I want an RXP. Wondering what the difference really is between handlebars. Please post if you've experienced both. I also want to be sure the thing will float when I freakin' sit on it.

    I know (or believe) that the 07' is technolgically superior... right?

    Anyways... any and all suggestions appreciated.

    -=Mike

    You will like the 07 handlebars, they're higher and wider, for more room. And yes the 07 seems to be a more refined year model.

    Thanks! OH.. and to update everyone... I bought an RXP-X!!!

    I figure I'll "need" the extra power.. We'll see how she goes, but [email protected] it looks nice. I pick it up on Monday, but I'm waiting until Tuesday if it rains on Monday.

    I feel your pain brother. I too am named Mike G. I am 6'2" and 295#'s. Sometimes people stare, don't they know fat guys like to ride too? I have an 03 GTX SC my friend had a 04 RXP and I rode it all the time. Night and day between the way they ride. Wish I could afford an X then we would be even more alike.. Good luck and have fun.
