Sunday morning we topped off our tanks and met at the Red Rock Casino for the start of our fuel economy run to Barstow. The ride was almost all freeway miles under cold and windy conditions. We rode up several 4000+ passes on the climb up to Barstow. The conditions were the hardest to date of all the Vetter Challenges. We all were able to maintain a 65 mph to 80 mph Pace to Barstow. My bike was the only one to be significantly effected by the strong winds. Beater911 joined us and took photos and video of the ride, and then returned to Vegas for his flight home to WA. He did a great job helping to support our competition and the motorcycle hypermiling cause. Hopefully he will start work soon on streamlining his motorcycles.

We cruised into Barstow and assembled for lunch. After lunch we topped off out tanks and found: 1. Fred Hayes, HDT streamliner , 138.2 mpg, 2. Alan Smith, Kawasaki 250 streamliner , 95.9 mpg, 3. Josh Chen, HDT Streetfighter, 95.3 mpg, 4. Craig Vetter, Honda Helix streamliner, 92.9 mpg , 5. Vic Valdes ( Low&Slow) , Yamaha Vision streamliner, 61.9 mpg
