    What are these tubbie things?

    What's up with these things. We never had such nonsense on our 440 and 550's.
    Are we trying to turn a Jetski into a boat? That seems like the trend ever since the 70's now. Look at that SXR1500 thingy, OMG I seen one in person awhile back and was WTH is going on with world these days. I suppose they make tubbies and sponsons for a sxr1500 too..lmao A sit down with a handle pole.. Does it come with a drink holder too?!?

    Damn Whippersnatchers!

    Tubbies for tubby's...

    I rode a friends regular SXR-800 the other day that had tubbies on it. It was like riding a gyroscope. You couldnt lay the damn thing over without force and it always wanted to "right" itself back up. WTF! No fun at all, unless your cruising with a beer..
    If I was still racing, I would'nt use those stupid things, they're for babies. Didnt need them for racing a 440,550,650, and SuperJet either!

    Yep we didn't need color TV, riding lawn mowers or air conditioning either, we just sat around watching black and white , burning our *** up and passing out from heat exhaustion from cutting grass and thats the way we liked it !

    Yeah, we would play football in the front/back yard all day as kids and drink from the hose.
