    Riding in December? You bet. *PICS* *VID*

    I did some "skiing" today, just a bit different then snow skiing. Water was around 50, air was 43. Not to bad. It did get cold after an hour.

    Last year I was running 8150 rpm. I read on here that 8150 was the start of the ECU pulling fuel. Since I put on the Riva adjustable nozzle over the summer, I swapped out the 83mm ring and put in the 82mm ring. RPMs were 8100 all day long.

    I didn't do many speed runs, but with minus 1 bar of fuel I saw 71.2 mph. Not to bad.

    Ski ran super strong. Was running 8100 rpm (sweet spot) all day long.




    71 mph sitting straight up.




    This kind of gives you an idea how low the water is. I know some of you were asking in another thread. That's me up against the wall on my ski.




    Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam makes Lake Mead, which I am riding on.




    Hoover Dam. New bridge being built is coming along nicely.




    Looks warm, but it isn't.




    In The Narrows. Narrowest part of the lake. During the planning stages of Hoover Dam, the orginal plan was to build the dam in this area.




    High speed turn.

    I love the pics of the dam.... Last time I went to Vegas, I rented a helicopter and toured that area... They dropped us off in the grand canyon for a picnic then took us for a thrilling ride thru the twisties... Awesome place!!!

    There is some talk that water will be let out of Lake Powell to help fill up the lake, but it won't be enough.

    Hmmm maybe Bluewater network has point that is about the time that 4 stroke skis started taking over the PWC market and now PWC are not adding alll those billions of gallons of unburned fuel/oil mix into MEad
