Talking May the tailwind be with you, always...

Hi, I found this forum while scouting out options for a possible commuting motorcycle. My first choice in this search is the new CBR250, as I think my 70 k round trip with enough highway needs to have a capable ride. I have a Nissan frontier for the home projects and nasty commuting days, and currently use a 2002 CBR954 Fireblade for most commutes.

I have already found some great options and tips for FE improvements, including my first eco-mod on the Frontier, a home-built box cover with material I had stored in my workshed. This has just been built and I have to do a couple of test runs with and without to verify its capabilities.

Yes, sendler is working on a streamlined CBR 250 Honda and 150 mpg is likely possible.
