Rider Review of New Kawasaki SX-R1500

In 2005, I had the opportunity to be one of the first non-Hydrospace employees to ride the Hydrospace. I wrote the first ride report on the Hydrospace S4 110 that night and posted it to the PWCtoday forum boards where it can still be read there to this day, just google “Riff’s Hydrospace Review.” In hindsight, I think my review has stood the test of time.
