est average speed 90 - 100km/hr, 25C some tail wind some cross wind Exshaw, Banff then to Holden Alberta, 547.7km/15.2L. lots more EOC down steeper hills, up to stop signs, and red lights, I suspect that the EOC is between 5% and 10%. I am begining to think that the Magnus affect of wheels spinning is a greater source of drag on motorcycles than most people think.

The botttom of the intake air filter box was between 35C and 45C. I will look for a way to heat the intake air to 77C for better fuel economy.

speed 110km/hr, 18C, noticed that it is only at 20% , throatle; barley off idle, at this speed at around 4200rpm this would indicate that the engine may be to big for the low drag configuration unless i can change the cam for lower engine speed with smooth operation. or find and install smaller carbs.
