"Mine is faster than yours.."
So says the RXP owner this afternoon...he says his RXP just got out of the shop and is modified to go 80+mph.
He has the pretty Sea Doo wetsuit, he has the matching gloves and these space looking goggles.
I said have you raced a Yamaha? Yep...plenty of them.."what year is yours?", He asked. I say last year's.."what happened to the stickers?" he asked.
They got blown off at high speed! I said. He smiles...wanna race? Sure...but I can't take off from a dead start, my impellor must have ate up a rock and won't come out of the hole good...he said fine.
So we started out at about 1/4 speed, he hit the throttle..I left him in short order and kept in a "drag" like postion to the rear. We went for about a mile until I let off the throttle..let him idle up and he said. "Yours seems to be running good. I think the chop slow me down"..he says.
Lets run back the other way..same kind of run, he is sitting on the seat gaining speed and hits it..it did'nt take long for me to begin to leave him..I did not let off..he was smoked bad. We hit a few chop rollers and I kept on plugging..8-10 ski lengths.
I slowed down...he says "what the hell is done to that ski?"
I said, I just got mine out of the shop too!
This is done with an 800 grate and about 75-77mph in mediocre conditions..not bad not good....he ski does'nt doo 80mph.

Well....I won't beat any RXP's....but I hope to pick on a few folks with the 1200 Raider this summer. Sounds like a nice "OH YEAH".....moment for ya. I miss my 05 Stg 2 1300 for top end...but the raider should be a blast tho.
Great win my friend!

And...as James just explained to me, it was RXP-X. So, he's gonna need to get on here and buy some of the Jerry's store goodies.
It is fun...you wanna tell them, but it's better to show them.

Haha...I love it. Everyone thinks there boat is going 80 90 or 100mph
I was out on the Tripple today and pull along side this tiny 17' go-fast boat with a 150hp on the back he waves and points forward down the river. I said go for it.
He said let me get on plane first....ok so I just rode beside him til he was about topped out at about 80mph and then I pinned the throttle C-ya haha
