Best thread of the winter award! I look forward to reading this one every day. I've only had my MC for 2 1/2 seasons now so I have only gotten a couple of the "be that thing is fast" comments. I did see a guy loading a Supra one day at the ramp and got a little crooked as he settled on the bunks. He gunned it to straighten up and his prop immediately chewed into the corner of the prop guard. Worst sound I have ever heard!

I love this thread. My favorite is the midget stripper pole. that was the best one so far. 2nd favorite was the old man tell the guy he didn't know how to drive the boat fast enough. that one was pretty good too.

The bass boaters are the most fun. They never talk about what they caught, only about how fast their boat is. I was at the gas station on the way home from the lake, my 6 year old son (now 24) was "helping" me. Mr. bass boater was at the next pump, totally Rangered out (hat, coat, stickers, etc.) My never-bashful son says "I rode on the tube today!" Mr. Ranger says "my boat's too fast for a tube" (to a 6 year old!) I said "so is mine, I just throttle back a little". Ranger dude didn't want to talk any more.
