Bought a Yamaha GP1300R with a stage 2 kit on it. Went out on it 2day, strugled to hold on. The aceleration is amazing. Its a different kind of fun than the rib.I still miss the rib but have no regrets changing.

Good luck with your jet ski Jieboy, if your about in our waters I would love a go on that thing, you gotta be mad to sit on that thing & do 70mph, my car only just hits that sort of speeds, & that frightens me when it does, let alone on the sea. WOW!!

At last years poker run, we got quite easily out run by a jet ski from southampton -> yarmouth - not sure what speed he was going, but the weather that day wasnt that nice... I'm sure it was somewhere between a force 4 and 6.

I guess its all down to driver competence!

On the way back from cowes to southampton, a zap cat gave us a run for our money to!
