Maybe I missed this, but what is your fuel economy on this trip (overall or typical)? Thanks for your updates and whetting our appetites waiting for the US launch!

The latter is easily, remedially, fixed with a liberal lubing of the chain, but with the full load of luggage the side stand does not adequately support the bike. We've been running in "Street mode" most of the time and the bike performs well there.
