results From MAX BMW news letter

When your low fuel light comes on and you're wondering just how much farther you can make it, consider this: with little ingenuity and a lot of discipline, MAX BMW's Steve Mauk used barely over a gallon of gas to ride 105 miles on a G650 GS. Steve's astonishing 103.653 MPG was enough for him to take home top honors in Sunday's Tri-State National Fuel Mileage Rally.

On a day that was just about as perfect as weather in September can get, nearly 30 vehicles accepted the challenge to ride a hilly route through the Berkshires. Seventeen motorcycles lined up, covering the gamut from an R27 ridden by Joe Warner, to the brand new G650 GS that Steve Mauk rode. Despite an abundance of trash-talking about secret modifications and questionable apparel in the weeks leading up to the rally, in the end most riders elected to keep it simple. Body position and throttle control were the primary strategies, though Steve Mauk added a couple of pillows for comfort.


The car guys (and gals) were more serious about engineering their aero packages and MAX BMW NY's Mike Kamm must have gotten some strange looks out on the public roads, as he coaxed 73.944 MPG out of his blacked out Nissan Sentra with a wrap-around spoiler that even covered his wheel areas!
