Got another record tank with the SV

I beat my 71 MPG highway tank, this time getting 74.8 MPG.

No modifications since previous record tank, excepting a nearly 3/4 radiator block. I was even running the OE spec tire pressures of 33F/36R.

The blocking was enough to keep engine temperatures around low 170s in the 45 or so degree weather. Operating temperature is 176F as far as I know.

This tank was lower speed riding while still tucking a good bit. Plenty of short shifting and putting around. The battery was dying, so I didn't shut off the engine as much as I would have liked.

Can't wait to get my own SV! Considering what I can do with this SV, I think pushing my MPG goal up from 90 to 100 is the right thing to do.
