Riding my ski yesterday I was sitting on the end of my water bottle to keep it from flying off and kept having to adjust it as usual. It probably looked like I had issues down south with how much I was fiddling with it LOL. I decided to make saddle bags for more storage. I like to have my water and spray sunscreen close at hand. I was about to order outdoor fabric to make it since I'm pretty DIY but decided to goggle " jetski saddle bag first " and it brought me to a link for horse saddle bags at a decent price. Hmmm. I wonder if it will fit ( strap going under the seat) If not I could always sew in extender fabric but the bags look pretty cool. Haveing a 3 seater I have plenty of room for this :)

Why not the storage bin? Or isn't it enough maybe? If i ever had more stuff to take with me i would have carried a backpack with me.

By the way, maybe seatbags for motorcycles will fit? If you ride alone on a 3up there will be some space behind you.

I bet you could use a regular bag too if you use straps that go under the seat and over the bag. :)

The storage bin has my emergency panel and a dry bag with a towel in it, after that there isn't a ton of room. I looked at the motorcycle bags too but I didnt see any I liked. Good suggestion though. thanks I ended up ordering the one in the link above in black. I like that it has water bottle holders on it. It has some insulation too.

Okay this will be the first time you hear me say this and probably last... but I like small things between my legs :) 49cc scooter and SeaDoo Spark :) hehehe. I wanted a lighter ski so I got the spark :) It made me feel better when my friend with a way better ski said to me on the water yesterday.. " **** i wish I had brake and reverse. i test drove the sparks for fun a week after I bought my ski and now I wish I got the spark " lol. ya im def jealous of trunk space on other skis but I'm making it work :)

^ those could be useful. Before I bought my spark I was thinking of attaching something like that to the inside of my trunk to run a small cable lock through and secure my life jacket. I was concerned that if I was on an island and not near my ski someone may steal it out of the trunk. After all the jetski theft in miami as well as learning Spark " keys " work on any spark and are not specifically programmed to your ski, I won't be letting her out of my sight. :) Those clamps could help secure other things. Once I take Spark's top off for the first time I'll have to get a good luck at places I may want to attach things if desired :)

Ok Straight...here we go....Big breathe in....... ..the spark doesnt have a learning key, it's just a key, You carry WAAAAY to much stuff LOL, I would say 1/4 of the stuff in your front bin is not needed and is overkill, you have to think about those saddle bags you bought. You say you like jumping waves, since they dont tie down on the sides every wave you hit they will fly up and possibly dump every thing in it. Seadoo makes a dry bag that attaches to the back hook if your still interested. Good things come in small packages.
RIDE ON GURL :D

You breathe in coughing boy :) * giggle *

I didn't update you.. I found a spot at the marina that I feel is safe to keep my ski cover and a little bag of cleaning stuff ( salt away, flush attachment, chamois<---)--- I hate the way that word is spelled. There is a rack of plastic shelves off in a corner that has a zillion boat covers on it and a sign that says leave covers & inflatables at your own risk. It looks like they haven't been touched in years so I just jam my stuff under / behind one of them. Way more room in my front trunk now.

Ya I know things could bounce up riding but I'm just looking to put rope, water and spray sunscreen in it and zipped shut ( nothing that will matter if it gets wet) I could attach something so it doesn't bounce or just put my legs over half of it ( we will see, trial and error) if for some reason it totally sucks on my ski I can use it on my scooter. By the way I bought a different rope for my ski. I got some cheap rope at first but after your borderline cracking on my rope and suggestion for a different/better one I decided to upgrade :)

good things come in small packages? heh no wonder I like guys on the shorter side :)

Straight doesn't like small packages hahaha
Hey I was thinking about saying something naughty there but decided to suppress my filthy mind. It's never small when its in your ass :) Did I just say that out loud? Stop being a bad influence on an already naughty person Rtheonb :) Wow it doesn't censor me when I say ass but I can't say d a m n ?

RIDE ON BRONCO ( im calling you bronco until your bronchitis is gone :)

I posted this in another thread talking about it so if you if you already read it there this will be a duplicate post...

I bought the saddle bags and tried it today for the first time. Awesome!

They are not waterproof so they are for things like rope and water bottles and things you don't mind getting wet. They are meant for horses but work great on the Spark. Makes grabbing for water bottles VERY easy. I love mine. 2 of the pockets that zip shut are insulated about 80% of the way. You would have to see it to understand. So its not as good as a cooler but not as bad as a paper bag for keeping things cold. I'd put food in a tipple ziplock or screw tight container to keep it dry.

It looks like a beat up looking black in the photo in the ad but its solid black.

I altered mine a bit so it wouldn't flop around. First time testing it out and it went well. No flopping. My stuff felt very secure but I wouldn't go putting a favorite or expensive water bottle in there because you never know.. On the very top of the part that you put under your seat you will want to cut off any clips/toggle things. Also makes sure you put it under your seat away from the little areas that the seat hooks into the ski ( obviously ) if you look you will see the perfect spot for this to go. I sit in front of it and it's way back on my 3 seater but it looks like it would not get in the way of a 2nd or 3rd passenger. The straps that are long and are elsewhere on the saddle bags I cut off and attached to the back / bottom of the saddle bags so that it could wrap around and be adjusted behind the seat down towards the base of the ski. I think I did some basic sewing I don't remember. I am ALWAYS altering stuff to make it work differently than intended so it was super easy for me but I think anyone can figure it out.

Here are some pics of it on my Spark. I ran one of the straps through the tow hook.

Just need water bags to ride my SPARK

How about these from AMAZON - Western 600 Denier Bottle Holder Cantle Bag

It has tie down that can go threw the back tow hook.

It looks from the picture like it would work but cantle bags go behind a horse saddle. It would be too thick and small to go under a Spark seat.
