Be interesting to see if Expedition Ge-Force and X give SFNE's S:ROS some serious competition for #1 this year.

X even at half its height would still reign supreme for me...might even be reliable enough to be ranked by more voters...;).

Sorry to dissapoint X devotees, but a little bird told me it will be in the top ten, maybe in the top 5, but no way will it be # 1. SROS is a way better ride IMHO. I would not be surprised if GE-Force is up there at 1 or 2.....

Super-Zipper (X) comes in second only behind S:RoS SFNE in my book. Is it because I can only handle so many X rides at a time? That I've not had the opportunity to ride S:RoS beyond my limits? Or because one is in my backyard and the other thousands of miles away? Could be. Or maybe I'm just an ejector air whore........

SFA's version feel RIGHT below X in my book (admitted ejector air whore myself, yet to get to SFNE)....but X was *that* good, unbelievable...all "normal" terms like front/back, up/down, etc., all became obsolete after my first trip...

boblo, I ought to take the Minibike of Justice from you for suggesting that X isn't *all that*....I dearly LOVE ejector-type air, but X blew my mind...:). I'm forced to wonder what my tolerance limit would be for consecutive rides on X....

Carson Palmer wins Heisman, although not as close as predicted...;)
Final Score from College Park: Gary Williams 64, Billy Donovan 69 :)

'gator, the 'Justice' league has no claim to or juridiction over my ride. X can be a cruel mistress when riding every other cycle for over an hour. YMMV

Luckily (?) for me boblo, I had to wait at least 30 mins between X cycles, that on an empty Friday. Every other cycle...that's a problem I'd LOVE to have, lol....we *should* get to SFNE's Man of Steel sometime this season...if it's really BETTER than SFA's, that is gonna be one AMAZING ride...:)

As for your ride, I don't know HOW you could get your knees behind your head to ride that thing, but color ME impressed...:)
