    Hope i get a chance to ride one.How was the 1 foot plus chop today? I know its hard to ride in but at least you got out.I can only imagine the amount of boats/ski's today.You almost needed a tug boat to ride in that water. Glad you had fun.Its funny how Lake Lahontan,we were riding at the middle of our season,now has quads riding in it. We need a BIG winter Dan.

    I got to ride an ultra last year. I was very impressed with the rough water ride but can you say boring. It's just like ridin in a big caddy, cushy but not exciting.

    No offense faster but if that Ultra 250X only ran 56.7 in the chop or not something is wrong with it. I have one and in 1-2 ft chop I cant catch my wife on it on my 82mph GPR. Not kidding at all. My experience with the Ultra after almost 2 years of ownership is that in real serious chop I dont care who you are, it will give you all you want and if you can hold it pinned wide open and hang for long distance it would amaze me.
