    Tucking is key if you want to keep the speed up. Tuck on the highway and pop up for a second and watch your speed drop.

    I went up a front tooth on mine to make it more useable. Sacrificed a little power but I'm not rowing through the gears as much. I can cruise in 4th all over now. Before I was 3rd -5th all the time.

    I worked Saturday (walking the property in Gilmanton with client, where I also want to spend some time hunting), and picked up yard shit in afternoon, I always wait till my garden hoses are filled with ice. on Sunday when I finally went out, I was thinking about taking a ride over the hill, but no heated gear on the K-Pipe, and even though warmer than Friday, it was still fucking cold on a nekid bike

    of vice versa, tuck, and watch the speed slowly increase

    I tucked a bit on my ride, more cause of the freeking cold than trying to increase the speed, the effort to curl into the fetal position to ride a bike isn't worth the 4mph gain in top speed

    it does cruise right along at 40-45 with hardly any throttle, I am really curious what I will get for gas mileage, I remember getting as much as 130mpg on the old CB125S I had years ago, but I'm 50-75 lb heavier now

    You should be right along that figure if you dont go crazy. As you have found out wind is not your friend. a strong head wind will really make the motor work over time.

    Do you know if the carb has been jetted on yours? Some would run really lean and dealers would richer them up, sometimes a lot. I think I am running a 104 main now. Stock was 88 or 92 if I remember right. I think 96 was installed to get stock bikes running right. Yours could be anywhere in between.

    not sure, one of the mechanics remembers the bike got a new crankshaft on a recall. I will have to ask the service dept to get into the records on the bike, it was previously owned by the sales dept manager and serviced at the dealership

    Yup! I totally wussed out of a ride Sunday afternoon. But that was also after a visit to the pot-shop that was down where we went to see Dana Fuchs Saturday night. LMFBO!

    Cannon A1400, nice little digital that still uses an optical viewfinder, batteries last forever, cause it isn't constantly powering the monitor/view screen, not that great image on handheld closeups, obsolete, but you can still find em, takes a better picture than a cell phone for the most part
