Re: Week of April 16th - April 22nd, 2012 (Nat Avg $3.93)

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

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
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

Gord,

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...

Re: Week of April 16th - April 22nd, 2012 (Nat Avg $3.93)

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 )

Now I go hurry back to work...
