    Uneven Playing Field: 2019 Yamaha GP1800R WaveRunner (Video)



    I have come to the conclusion that the 2019 Yamaha GP1800R WaveRunnermuch like the two years of the GP1800 that preceded it – is far too much of a machine for most people. Now, don’t get me wrong. There are plenty who think that they’re experienced enough, physically fit enough or “hardcore” enough to wring every last ounce of enjoyment out of the new GP1800R. They’re sure of it, just like an overconfident contestant strutting onto the stage of a talent show. They’ve been told by their friends and family that, yes, their talent and skill is above and beyond the norm.

    " like welding a trailer hitch to the back of a ZR1 Corvette ".

    There's a guy in my area that tows his ski with a Corvette.

    Very good review, I loved the GP when I first rode it! Really handles turns well with no dip at all in the nose like some of the other svho's, it's as raw as they get, always letting you push it to your own limits, can't wait to get mine!
