    Nope. Front seat doesn't fold flat. Rear seat split-folds, but the limiting space is the pass-thru between the front seats. That fold-flat front seat is a nifty feature you have that I don't.

    Kind of like this.

    Sheesh. I'm going to have to go over the car to see if there is anything wrong with it because I can't get the high numbers no matter what I do in the afternoons. Something isn't right (though I am getting a lot more traffic stopping me recently and the wind isn't helping matters at all).

    7 lights to contend with on the way to lunch and I had to backtrack through 6 of them to get onto my normal route going home. :p

    54F, 10mph headwind from the N, sunny:

    • 69.7mpg for 2.7mi (Work to restaurant)
    • 106.6mpg for 14.7mi (Restaurant to home)
    The tank is back down to 105.9mpg over 616.5mi with 10 of 20 bars remaining on the fuel gauge.

    Day Total: 104.1mpg over 32.5mi

    My son had a few suggestions for mpg dropping: Sticking brake caliper since brakes are used so infrequently? No really.:p Lazy O2 sensor(s)? Clogged catalytic converter?

    It's probably just me since the morning numbers are where I expect them to be, rolling distances appear to be about right, and cruising instantaneous numbers are on the money. :eek:

    Had to come to school today again because I need access to some journals which are not online yet. Paper is due at midnight and I focus better away from the distractions of home.

    50.3/55.2 miles @ 53F slight headwind from the East (which is weird in itself).

    Had to go to vote today. Intentionally forgot the keys @ home, so we had to walk while our 5 years old son got his bike :cool:
    • 1.2 mi @ 8500mpgUS
    based upon the energy used by the coffee machine used just before leaving home :p

    Finished another tank on Sunday on a Gerecse exploration trip (it's a hilly area of Hungary I've never seen before). We spent ~210km in the saddle yesterday (~130mi), started in warm (albeit windy, of course) spring weather and ended up in rain on the way home.

    The tank itself became the best this year so far: 2.89l/100km ~ 81.51 mpgUS. Finally I'm over 80 mpg again, yay.

    Morning to work: 5C, nice route (it's not dark anymore at 5:20am), tried key-off coasting down the usual way. In this cold Teresa wouldn't roll up a little incline before the road, she stops there instead. So it's only 0.6km key off today, not 0.8 like other times I took this route lately. And it must be the temperature, she did not roll down to the road in winter either.

    Well done Alvaro :D

    What's happened to the UG Kirk? Great fill result by the way :)

    4 short trips on Sunday:

    52.3 / 4.4 To parents for lunch, 46°F, 5UP + dog.
    47.4 / 4.4 Back home, raining, 57°F.
    78.3 / 2.9 To shops. Brilliant short run, loads of engine off coasting, 46°F, 1UP, I managed to coast all way from 2 lane, round a roundabout and into a pull-through spot in car park. I love it when that happens :D
    54.5 / 3.0 Heavy rain on way back home, had to go a different way, more traffic, lots of standing water :(, 46°F.

    Total for Sunday: 54.6mpg over 14.7miles

    Tank steady at 53.8 / 562.7 / DTE238 Guess gauge at 4+/14

    Nothing wrong with the UG just decided to go with the ODO numbers for simplicity.

    Oh, Sean. I feel your pain, but when you put these two statements together... :p

    13C / 55F last afternoon and started in a light drizzle which stopped somewhere on the way home. I took the short route.

    8C /46F this morning. Teresa did glide a bit better than yesterday (5C / 41F), and almost reached the top of that bump before the road. It's still 0.6km key off, anyway.

    Today I used the glove heating for only about half of the trip, and stopped the engine for long red lights (after I disconnected the heating). After I had stopped cars behind I didn't needed the extra visibility so I turned the lights off by the ignition key (there's no other way, she's European and our regulations say that lights must always be on on a motorcycle :D)

    Now I go hurry back to work...
