New Avon 560

just so all can see, will post more pics when i get the components, will have all the usual outhill stuff,bench for the girlies, 2 x jockeys etc,
having a A frame made currently, with some Led Nav lights.
chose the Optimax 115 as it was reasonably light, looked great under the current colour scheme,Hopefully economical on the cruise and can be very fast if need be, reckon it will be a great wavejumping beast!! Also need to keep up with Nos!!!

Uh yer, why would a 100 yam go better than a 115 opti, not had an opti myself but looks like the perfect choice of set up to me, had plenty of yams up to a 90 and i rate them highly for there response and torque, but the opti should be a tad more responsive with bags of power.
Yes i think Yamaha did a 100 which i think was a v4.
