Hi all. I had a fantastic ride yesterday (technially only cause I havent slept yet) and stumbled across a wind farm near Dekalb, IL. It was beautiful out and even though it was a bit warm (93F), just seeing the wind turbines was worth it. The sky was clear and should remain that way today too. One of the pics I took was of my bike and a farm house, two wind turbines flanking it on either side. It's days like this I envy those folks... I will follow up soon with more pics after I get some rest. As soon as I fill up again, I will post my mpg but right before the ride, I had 52.8mpg. I am using an enzyme to help treat the ethanol and it has helped raise my fuel efficiency quite a bit.

Cool

What enzyme would that be; and where do you get it; and how do you use it?

Keep the report and pics coming.
It is my experience on my Silver Wing that it will get 53 mpg with 87 octane. In my recent trip with my stelthy wife in heat and humidity over hills I dropped to 46 mpg. I'm a big guy and we where loaded with gear.
Nice report!
