Keep up the good work, you're improving
Weather is getting cooler here too, making harder to make good tanks. This morning on the way home it was 0..-4C (31..25F) when I gave a lift to a colleague - battery died in his Transalp. Just for the record, I can't really take any colder... My feet were cold and I felt the tires losing grip on that forest backroad I came through.

'Thanks' to the weather and the frequent 2-up (and packed) journeys I'm full of sub-80mpg tanks and have even sub-70 ones Rain, wind, and freeways take their toll, just like the extra weight. I'm may having a 80+mpg segment right now, but I don't trust it'll last for the tank - we're going on a 2-up travel through half of Hungary again. Out of necessity, not joy...
