Good for you- very scenic ride! 450 Km- what's the tank size?

Haha - the kind of Boss that seems to forget to pay any wages too...

Your one day a year ride looked fantastic!



There's just a chance that Bossy and I might, might make it to the Alps in September...

Cheers

hi Jack,

14.4 Liters are going in there.
as I wasn't riding it really hot on this daytripp, the consumption was near 3.1 liters by 100 km's. :cool:

Jack Gifford wrote:You seem to do just fine without electric starting...


yes, it is a easy starter, first ore second kick usually, A/F Ratio in idle with pulled choke around 12.5 : 1 by outside temperature of 15° in the morning hour. :cool: :cool:
