    A little intro for myself.

    Good day, fine fellows. I am very new to the ski world. So new, in fact, that I do not own one... yet.
    I've been riding one of either two older skis belonging to a friend of mine. Those skis being a '94 and '95 WaveRunner (I'm usually on the '94).
    Very soon, I will be in the market for a ski that I can call my own, to love, cherish and ride the hell out of.
    Much pondering has landed my mind on a GP1300R.
    I'm not sure what year I will shoot for since I do not know how much I'm going to be able to afford at this time (will know in a month or so). Upgrades will be in the works soon after purchase (again, I must assess my funds).

    The little search button up there has proven its worth here. In only a day of lurking I've established what NOT to do based on the rants and raves of you lot and for that I am grateful.

    Plug these (33.959584,-87.13966) into google maps and that should give you a good idea of where I'm located and where I ride.

    Smile Welcome

    Hey there rdxpetn....

    Welcome aboard the good ship green hulk...

    A GP1300r is a pretty solid choice for a first ski...

    Ideally you want to get into an 04 or newer.. (the 03's had a few minor hull issues. most will likely have had them resolved )

    After another few hours with the search button.
    You'll likely figure out whats good and whats complete shit as far as mods go..

    GPR's are good. If your looking to save money on gas look elsewhere.

    Welcome! I enjoy my 03 GPR. all hull problems were solved a year ago at no cost to me, its a maditory repair paid for by YAMAHA. I have enjoyed modifying and riding both. Easy to modify and great to ride. 2up is iffy in rough waters but comfortable in back rivers where I ride. good luck we are all willing to help with your purchase/mods. All your answers are HERE. GREEN HULK !!
