Hi everyone,

I am the proud new owner of a 2UP 60 (Convenience Pac). These forums played a large role in my decision over the past couple of days. I'm only 24, so I was struggling with whether I could justify the purchase, but I think I'm glad that I made the leap. After reading through the posts here, it felt like I was missing out on too much fun.

I'm going to ride it stock for as long as I can, but already have the bug for the VTECH/Impellar/Wear ring. Odds are, all 3 will be installed before summer's end.

Picture 1: My ski
Picture 2: Ride home. This is my roommate 4Runner
Picture 3: The actual tow vehicle. Installing a hitch next week. Should be interesting to see how it does. I'm kind of nervous. I race this car, so it's on hi-performance tires that might not get along great with a wet boat ramp and it's a stick.

Ayyyy Welcome!

I'm 23 and also battled around the idea/justification of a spark.

I wound up with an Orange 3 up with convenience package, I don't think you'll regret it at all.

Towing this thing is a breeze, its like I've got nothing behind me, I think you will be alright. I haven't been putting the tires in the drink, cause the spark is light enough to push off a dry trailer and pull onto it as well.

Mmmmmmmm, that Abarth, though. Nice car. One of the best exhaust notes to be had for less than $100k. That's a surprisingly sinister looking rig when you consider that it's a Fiat 500 and a Spark, ha.

It sure gets some funny stares and people snapping photos. I bought the Spark last season when I had a 3500 dually, and sold that due to not really having a use for it anymore and completely forgot I had the Spark until it started to get warm, and went into a panic. Realized the Fiat should be fine, and sure enough it barely even knows it's there

Congrats on the purchase. Riding season has just begun in the north east. Have you taken it out on the water yet this year?

Welcome to the forum!

Ha, I'm not quite sure, to be honest. I live right off of the Ohio River, so I'll probably get my first ride in by just dropping it in there for a few hours. As I understand, though, the Ohio can be a little dangerous and it's pretty dirty. Do you know of any good lakes in the area? Long term, I'll probably wind up keeping it at my girlfriend's lake house (Leitchfield, KY), but she doesn't have a lift for it yet.

Any plans to mount a GoPro to your Spark?

Don't notice nearly as many PWC riders doing in comparison to motorcycle riders.

The Ohio River is fine as long as you are above the dam. It is night and day difference in the water and the people. Downtown is rough , dirty and no one pays attention to anything. We own a Spark 2up and a boat. Spark in the morning, boat during the day and Spark again in the evening. On the river every weekend. Good Luck
