Wow! That would make for a 1200 km-day with the VFR. In fun mode, mind you.
Sure you're not having a leak somewhere.... ?

Indeed! - It's the only logical conclusion.

1200 km's! I wish! - No, we did just over 200 miles....No leaks ....but we fill up every 70 miles or so. ..ie the tanks aren't empty at that point ...but you might not make it to the next potential fuel stop if you didn't ....Having said that, my fuel light had already come on when we stopped for petrol at Inveraray - if you are having 'fun' you certainly get a lot less miles to the tank...

It's all your fault Kamchat.



Awesome to see the crew out and about again. But, with all this Gixxer talk you've done gone and made me go out and buy one. So Scotland make be a little further away until I make the bank happy. And it's getting cold in my neck of the woods so have to get some quick riding in and then put her away for the winter so will have to enjoy your rides instead.

Cheers to your spring. Ps. How many miles are you getting from a tank of juice?

Day's end - arriving back into Dumbarton near Glasgow...and pulling over at the BP garage to say our goodbyes before folk head off in different directions...

First rideout of the year done - it was a tad cool and grey ..but stayed dry with no incidents (breakdowns/accidents/speeding tickets)...so result all round.......roll on next time...

'It's all your fault Kamchat' - It usually is!

Nice looking gixxer! ..Is that the 750? ....... Congrats on the new ride ..you won't be disappointed...great bikes. Enjoy.

As for 'miles to a tank' ?...that really depends on the type of riding .... normally I would expect the fuel light to go on after about 100/110 miles or so ..with roughly another 25 miles left to empty. On a 'spirited' ride the light will come on after only 70/80 miles though. So I guess if you take it easy I could probably stretch 140 miles out of a tank .... alternatively I could guzzle it all in less than 90.

Yep! It's the 750. Good deals in Oz at the moment free on road cost etc. a mates got one and supa happy with it so took the plunge. Bit freaky after having a GSX1400 and haven't had a sports bike since the days of the Katana 750. Been riding today and loven the responsiveness. 80 miles out of a tank!! That's some good riding. But like I said if it wasn't for you and Sarah I'd probably be still plugging away on the 1400. Hopefully the pic works this time.

The country side in your pics BuBu looks magnificent whether its snow or green fields or coast. I'm jealous. It's getting a cold where I am.
