    Unhappy Why you shouldn't imitate Evel Knievel on a GTX




    This is what happens when a GTX does a nose dive at approxamatly 65 mph. I learned the hard way, you need plenty of room to each side if you are going to superman it. I wound up dislocating my left shoulder in this fiasco too.

    I veered about 5 dergrees off of my planned course which put me on top of a rock outcropping( ithink the common name is penisula ) Thus launching ski and rider into the air, the only thing the top half of the ski could have collided with is water. One thing I can say is the adjustable steering setup is a piece of chit.

    Ouch!!! Glad you're alive, but I'd have to say not OK, as a dislocated shoulder is very painful and can cause lifelong issues.

    I hope your insurance company comes through for you. Sounds like you'd be covered (leave out the superman part, though )

    I have to wonder, though, how in the world is your intake grate OK? I had a friend do the same thing on a jetty. It put his intake grate into the impeller.
