    Did I make a mistake?

    I recently bought my first ski, a Yamaha VX 110 Deluxe. I liked it for the reliability and stability. After reading the forums for a few days it sounds to me that the people with the GP's and GPR's are the ones that have all of the fun.

    Did I make a mistake? Are GP's and R's that much more fun? I will primarily be riding at the lakes in AZ (Bartlett, Pleasant Saguaro). The water gets pretty rough on the weekends because of the crowds. I might head over to Parker or Havasu a few times a year.

    Looks like I might be buying my second ski sooner than I thought. (Let my wife have the VX 110) Any thoughts are appreciated.

    If you were happy with the VX before you read the forums, you didn't make a mistake. Only you can determine if you're happy

    The vx will be a reliable and use less fuel then the gpr.... the gpr is faster and more easily modded.

    Enjoy the VX for your wife and start looking for a GPR for yourself Sometimes I wish I had a VX just to cruise around with wife on

    Besides while your doing all the mods to the GPR you will need a backup ski to ride

    You have other riders in AZ that you can try other skis...

    It's all about fun, so whatever makes you happy, then that is the ski to have.

    I will tell you this... there are about ten gazillion rental VX110's around here. So if yours is stock looking, make sure to keep your eye on it at all times.
