    So you probably have unlimited, but if not I would have paid for an extra license to have been able to get that done! Even a case of your favorite beverage, I still would have came out way ahead. Keep me on the list, this thing is going in the water tomorrow for the first time, not counting the test ride. This week seems like it has been a month long. It's given me a chance to replace some busted speakers, a broken NAV light, new tires for the trailer, new switches, and other things. Plus I downloaded the shop manual, and getting to know my new friend a little better.

    Glad I found this forum, keep me on the list for future rides in the area!

    Default Smith Mountain Lake Ride - July 21-23

    I was able to spend a little time with the gang and it was awesome. Beat the gsx hard on one ride and Lee was awesome and let me ride his new Cadillac on another. Wow that this is crazy. The water was glass and 0-68 on his ski felt like 0-45 on the gsx. That thing is so smooth. Anyway thanks to the gang for stopping by and including me. And also for sending out the search team when I got a little lost . Sml is a great place and I get to stay here all week!

    Thanks Don, was a great time for sure! Now I've got to get my SCOM installed since Jason just walked away from me at 75/76 and I was still stock limited to 68.

    I took lots of video on my new generic $70 Amazon gopro, so I'll post those later. I'll likely just post all up raw since I haven't tried any editing and don't really have time right now to mess with it.

    Awesome weekend hopefully the next one isn't last minute and we can have a few more riders, as usual I didn't take enough fotos but JasonV got some good ones
    If every down stroke is not a power stroke, you have too many strokes.

    Aw MAN! I missed it!! Haven't been on the forums much this year, getting ready for my big move to FL. Been trying to do 5 things at once while still trying to hang out with friends that I won't see much again. Looks like you guys had good weather. I've heard really great things about SML, the water is as beautiful as advertised. Let's do the next one down south

    I must say I am impressed, following a no wake zone, I wish we would have such respectful boaters on our lake.

    To all you SML regulars. Where is a good place to buy gas? We are leaving Monday for SML and will be there until Friday. The place we are staying is close to the State Park. Any place close to there to get gas?

    Lots of gas. Closest is probably north towards the bridge at whallers. Also gas at the bridge water marina and at jakes place. The other way across the channel up black water is the crazy horse marina. And many more. Have a great time. Great riding all over the lake. Up blackwater and above the bridge are excellent for glassy water

    We checked many marinas because we wanted 93 non- ethanol. Jakes Place, Bridgewater, Webster marine, and one other had it and many others did not.
