05 XLV (ok it was late december...)
The boat came with one board, some vests, and a rope
Hyperlite surfboard
Ronix Frontier board w bindings (boarderbestbuy deal)
kids combo skis
nice wakeboard line/handle (i think it's a proline)
cheaper ski rope
triple tube and a nice tube rope, and a 12v pump
3 neoprene vests for wife and kids, and a few orange ones to stow away
newer kenwood deck that works with the remote
optima bluetop, relay, and wiring to add 2nd battery
anchor, ropes, toolkit, first aid kit, misc other small stuff
2x750 fat sacs
perfect pass stargazer (finally shipped today. I guess they had software issues)
tower biminis top (I'm queued up, it sounds like they do a lot of business)
surfboard rack (it was a pain having to store the board)
LED light pods (still in box)


I doubt that's everything :P Next up is a kids wakeboard. I think the $150 Obrien system board looks decent for the price. My kids are still really little, but my 4yo asked if he could try next time. After that, it's time for a boomin stereo. (hence the 2nd battery)

I just ordered the byerly 2's. Do you like em? I have somewhat wide feet so I'm hoping they work.

Also, which heater did you get? And was the install hard? Wifey/mom would appreciate it I'm sure.

Looking for a prepaid GAS card!

LOL

Tried to buy 500 gallons of gas and have it delivered weekly, for 10 weeks, no bites!

Tlatoani,

Love the shoes so far (Haven't gotten 'em wet yet!) Got wide feet too.

Heater is a HeaterCraft. This is the link of what I bought. Best price online!

http://biggunsmarine.com/product_info.php?cPath=422_863_866&products_id=1081

The picture only shows three outlets, but that model actually has four. Also the kit I bought doesn't come with the water hose or brass fittings for the tie-in at the engine. I bought some upgraded hose and my own fittings somewhere else. I didn't think the install was very hard, but I'm allways doing stuff like that.

We love it! Took it out for the first time with heat, and my wife and kids were in hog heaven!

See my HotTube outlets:

I'll be posting more pictures of the heater install this weekend in "Pride and Joy" under "Our year old LSV".

So far..
08 Hyperlite Roam 144 and some LF bindings
07 Hyperlite Murray and Murray Bindings..
Dbot5 Wakesurf Rack
Wakesurf Rope
Added in some LED interior lighting i got last fall..
just ordered a Clarion EQ.. now thinking about a small amp to run cockpit speakers and utilize factory Kenwood amp for tower speakers.. Main goal is vol control... so rider can hear and the boat is not as loud.
Additional Remote to install at Transom.. still scratching head to get courage for drilling fiberglass!
Helmet for wife...

had idea that i would save a few bucks each month to put towards gas.. yeah, that did not happen.. Bama mentioned prepaid gas card.. only prob with prepaid cc's is that pay at the pump won't take them...

All in all, I think I have gotten some good stuff to start the year out. I have been out 3 times so far.. Feb, Mar and Apr... The new roam rides diff than my 05 roam.. need to spend more quality time on it..
tried out new Murray Sunday, but it was CHOPPY and i don't like my binding set up and hard to tell if you like a board in chop!
Cheers...

You know....I wish I had a giant underground 500 gal gas tank in my back yard so I could fill it up at todays gas prices rather than this summer when they sky rocket....

We bought the whole boat this year, lol! I also got the CWB wakeboard and LF bindings.

Need to pick up a rope and handle to complete my wakeboard package.

Seeing as this is our first boat I'm planning on having to buy a bunch of stuff. A buddy works at West Marine so I'll be putting togather a list soon, but I still have almost 2 months before the boat gets here... :evil: :evil: :(

Laz - Once you have used that Ez-Slalom course. I'd love to hear how easy it is to set-up and take down. I have been looking for a good course that is quick and easy. I'm in Calgary, was it expensive to ship up to Canada? Or did you buy it locally?

Laz

Hi. I ordered the course from Ed at ez slalom (www.ez-slalom.com).

He shipped it to me very promptly. I picked up the river anchors myself at a nearby Bass Pro shop which saved a lot on shipping costs. I had to pay $90 to Fedex for processing, but shipping was otherwise included in the price.

I had a go setting up a few of the pieces in my basement and it seem to go together quite easily. I'll report back how easy it ends up being to use.

nice bike, I picked up an 05 600rr this year and have done quite a bit of work to it.

I'm also going this week to look at an LSV, hopefully everything will work out and it will be mine.

Nice Bike Butta-- i know you just got it but the next thing you have to do is put a fender eliminator on it to get rid of all that junk that is taking away from the sweet lookin pipe. If your creative enough you can get away with not buying one and doin it yourself- I don't know how you like to ride but if you slap some rearsets and dual compound tires on her youve got one hell of a setup-any tracks near you?

Thanks....yeah I'm gonna hack the stock one I guess. I got some ideas anyway. I love the look of the undertail exhaust

Some of me cronies go to Road Atlanta over the July 4th weekend, I'm undecided as of yet (big boat day on my lake that weekend). Lowes Motor Speedway has something going on, not sure when, tho.

if you like the whole bike thing i strongly recommend getting on a track a.s.a.p - It will do wonders for your riding and is hell of a great place to scratch speed itches in a safe way. I try to do as many as possible, with the moomba added on my toy list this year i fear i'll be doing less. The site listed above is one of a few that offer these 'track days'
