Thank you, Im glad you liked it. The Beemer is my first motorized transportation since moving to the US from Germany. It's amazing how perfect America is for Road trips.

And the Wrap up:
best gas millage was 58miles/gal on 97 going a constant 55miles/hour
worst was 38miles/gal on i5 with two mountain passes and strong headwinds -> full throttle for a whole tank
average for the whole trip was 49miles/gallon, spend 125$ on gas - i'm pretty excited about that considering that it's the equivalent of filling up a pickup twice and we went all over the place.

my wife caught the motorbike bug and want's to ride next time herself, so this winter will be practice time and time to get another bike

our route planning/navigation:


turns out airheads do have oil in them:
