Beautiful day in Jersey

What a great day it was today. Tooling around in north west Jersey and PA. Put on 160 miles and was surprised to get 62 MPG !

62 mpg is great anytime, anywhere... I do however believe with these small tanks you need to check 3-4 tanks and average, as a tad difference in fill level makes a difference...
62 though is still good even if the fill level was off a tiny bit from before...

Nah, that's going to be really close. I've got 56 with the wife on the back.

Maybe if I backed off the throttle I'd get that kind of mileage.

The journey is the destination.

Yea, I currently weigh 145 lbs. I don't think I got on it the whole day. Just a nice cruise.
