Thanks

Thanks for the tips. I will have a backpack carrying some basic tools, (puncture kit), my camera, and my liners for the gear.

Hopefully it won't be too much of a hassel.

Thanks again.

Best I ever got on mine was 52mpg. It usually hovered right around 49 - 50mpg. I didn't exactly ride hard though.

Questions

Sorry to hear about the bill, no idea if you got ripped or not. Curious as to how many miles you have on you FZ6?? One plus of the Fizzer is that the vavle check is a long interval.
