Thanks for the heads up.

I think they kind of missed the point of my quest here.... I haven't really done anything crazy to the bike as far as modifications go. I simply geared the bike down (which we know helps FE for the most part- think BSFC tables), combined with a step larger diameter tires.

The whole point of my quest thus far is to show people real world results on the easiest and cheapest modification.... the driver mod! Imagine if everyone in the world drove differently and acheived 25% better fuel economy....

Having said that, the future may hold some interesting modifications
Doing my part to reduce dependence on OIL
Doing my part to reduce congestion
And enjoying it!

If you have to use your brakes, you are driving too fast!
