So. apropos of nothing in particular, I went on a nice ride yesterday, as the temp was close to 70 degrees F with wind blowing 3-10 knots...
Fueled up in Rocklin, then went 65 to Marysville, around the Sutter Buttes (smallest mountain range in the world) and up the river road next to the Sacramento River into Chico, then back home down 99-65-Sierra College, for a total of 214 miles.
Fueled up in Rocklin and then ran 139.3 miles and took on a total of 3.3 gallons, for a mileage rating of 42 mpg. This average was obtained using various speeds, from moderate velocity on the river roads to 70+ on the highway for fairly long stretches.
By the time it was time to refuel, I was in Gridley and the last fuel gauge marker was flashing. I was not sure what that meant, but after taking on the 3.3 gallons of fuel, I concluded that when the marker started flashing, I had a little less than a gallon of fuel left, meaning an approximate range of about 35 miles until dry.
As usual, the bike ran well and the Airflow worked great...I raised it up quite high for awhile, but then lowered it back down and discovered that I preferred it there.
OK...rambling mode off...hope you all had a great Saturday...
