Started P&G and raised my mpg by 3.5%

I have a motorcycle so P&G doesn't work too well, mostly I don't coast too far because of aero and lack of weight. But I started P&G, only a total of 10mph and I got 3.5% improvement in my mpg, my last tank was over 58 mpg.

Hmmm, P&G on a cycle. How is bump starting, or do you use electric start?

Bump starting isn't too bad on it because it's a small engine. I haven't really done the P&G with turning off the engine because my coasting is so short, but I do turn off the engine coming up to stops.
