Title: Ducati or jet boat
Post by: Gonzo7 on June 29, 2017, 18:13:27 PM
 B))T I'm having a crisis. I love my motorbike, but I really want a jet boat. If anyone is interested in a sexy Ducati monster S4, 2001 model, fuel injected 916 motor, meticulously maintained, never been dropped, serviced ever 5000km, has less than 20,000km & plenty of aftermarket bits, custom carbon fibre mufflers, grey Senna model with red wheels. Sounds amazing, goes beautifully. Asking $8000 ono, will swap for the right jet boat.

That's easy to say, easier than convincing the treasurer. Haven't been using my bike lately. Could still ride hers if I sold mine, when she's not looking...

Then its easy, sell bike, buy boat and use her bike when the desire strikes

Thanks, likely how it will be. Not sure what to get though. Grew up with jet boats & like the comme/2 stage set ups, but wanted to do a jet ski set up since I was a teen. Can produce an alloy hull at work no worries and get a complete donor boat for the same price as a ski. Anyone got a comparison of maintenance between a jet ski pump vs Colorado 2 stage ?

Hamilton pump will last 10 years and the ski pump 10 minutes.

All good mate. Truth be told, my wife is an awesome rider. Better than most of the guys we ride with. Have been pillion with her before and it was fun. Better option is to take her bike out on Fridays when she's working as I work Monday to Thursday. Bikes got a new wof & going on trade me this week.
