So you got an average 86kph using 3/4 to 7/8 throttle into a 15kph headwind, with the engine settled nicely into optimum operating temp while riding in an ambient 100* F. Niiiice....
Love the esprit of adventuresome yet objective & scientific inquiry, too: "Right, then...we're riding in this broiling effin' desert, keeping a smart rate for a goodly stretch where some
o' yer brand-name air-cooled mills would carmelize in the heat n' well, if she blows, we''ll see the smoke 'n trow 'er cross the shoulders fer home & bang out some nice parts orders on the interWebs. Aye."
Aussies; fair dinkum right down the line.
