I have a set of thin nomex coveralls, which when I did plant stuff I wore just a t-shirt and boxers underneath. that wasn't too terrible, but the heavy nomex sucks

No, it says miles/gal. And I've never seen a car that tells you to the decimal point of how many miles left.

110 or so was the hottest around big bend. That was miserable. In the rain too many times.

I figured it would be something like that. You are lucky to get a gas gauge on a sport bike.

Yeah, my best description for riding in the afternoon weather is like having a blow dryer on full Hi temp, full blast aimed right at your neck and face for a half hour...try that!

Just getting back to the boards today...
Yup, it was average MPG, but I was doing like 15 MPH in heavy traffic when I took that pic from my Droid that's mounted on my risers.
I normally get about 40-45 MPG.

It was HOT!
