thats the same kinda f'd up readings I get from another defective fuel strip. Ready for my 3rd or is it the 4th ..lost count. Arg !

I knew I would be close but I was hoping to use my KTM950SE refueling device on SOGs bike...my luck he would have been 6 miles to empty

and how many fuel stops did you pass on your way to Loco ? ? ? If you run out of gas, it ain't the wind or the bikes fault ! ! !

The down side of a GSA with the huge tank and the diversity of mileage is that it gives you a wide range to empty. Sunday I was riding against 40mph head wind at 100mph...mileage was 26mpg At 60mph I can get 45 mpg

You sure that's not the downside to the right wrist being severed from the common sense part of the brain?

Dam James, you don't let any of us have fun with out calling us out.

But there could be a little truth in that commit.

Heading into the Talladega national forest this weekend with a bunch of people I don't know, most of them on DRZ's. Should be funny for them anyway.

To watch me.

Crash.

What do you think I'm riding?

My DRZ is still down waiting on unobtanium bolts to come in. There are going to be some GS's and I think a 950 and a SE. Or maybe it was a 950SE. It will be entertaining anyway.

Here is a overview video. I can definitely hang with the maneuver at 0:58. The tight tree scrub part will be high adventure, the rest of the stuff just looks like good old fun times.
