    Here's where I started...

    When I was growing up, I had a bad fear of the water! Now I love IT!

    Billy...that 580 was what started the revolution we enjoy today. Kawi tried to answer with the 750, Polarious came up with the 650, then Yamaha with the Raider 701, then the XP800 came, then Raider 1100..and here we are today after those original fast sitdowns. It was the 580 that shot the first go-fast shot ino.

    I had a really good time with that ski I thought I was big stuff since it had "Twin-Carb"" on the side of it !!

    following afterwards were:

    1993 Tigershark 650, plenty of power, but it had (weird handling) felt like I was riding a surfboard
    1994 XP
    2-1994 SPX
    1995 XP
    1996 XP Major Fun Factor !!
    2001 RX Lots of power and cool bells and whistles on it

    Now, my GPR ..... and the wife's 1998 Sea-Doo GTI now

    Well mine was a 1988 waverunner 500, took out the 500, put in a 701 , protec ported cylinders , 44mm carb ,solas prop, milled head ,Protech pipe,(very rare), it was extremly hard to find any one that would take the time to even talk to me about building it, I guess i have always liked the under dog.........itonly went 42/45 but it got there like right now....changed out the bars for WR3's ,and painted it myself added gauges, had newer 96 model graphics off of a WR3 made for it......I loved this old thing......I will send the pictures tommorow at work .this crappy computer at home cant draw the pictures fast enough....LOL
