I broke 60 MPG for the first time with my little screamer, I also broke something else...My speedo cable decided it didn't want to stay attached anymore at the start of today's ride. I believe on later models of the MC19 and all(?) MC22s if the speedo cable is not connected, the engine is limited to either 8000 or 12000 RPM. Either way, mine didn't do anything unusual. I was able to get a trip reading from using google maps distance as well as the trip meter reading from my vfr 400.

Lots of chooching and sudden braking, but that didn't stop me from beating 60! 65 Should be well within reach, 70 might take some more effort though. My aero front fender should be showing up this coming week, and I may work on some brake drag reduction springs.

134.8 miles with 2.236 gallons = 60.3 MPG!
