Well, since you drive a descent mix you'll be looking to do a few things. But, since 2/3s of you drive is highway I'd suggest looking into aerodynamic modifications. I'd also look into a warm air intake as it will keep you in lean burn mode more.

My Warm Air Intake is showing some great results on the '00 DX I drive. I'll have pics up soon on my project thread.

With all of the highway driving you have planned I'd go aero. do a grill block, rear wheel skirts, mirror delete, belly pan, whatever you have time for. Let AndrewJ show you how http://forum.ecomodder.com/showthread.php?t=312

Definitely keep us (me especially) on this BABE rally. I've never heard of it, but I can prob meet y'all at the finish

My bike runs on dihydrogen monoxide.
I like to use these acronyms
