Pic of 1st ski/riding the longest?
When did everyone begin riding and if would like, post a pic of your first ski Dont be ashamed, my first ski was a 1986 kaw 300 stand-up (single cylinder)- i think it had 30 hp. I bought it brand new in 1986 and thought I was 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.

following afterwards were:
1993 Tigershark 650, plenty of power, but it had (weird handling) felt like I was riding a surfboard
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
