Have you looked at his video? And he says he is running mainly in the "poor fuel" mode (accessible via an accessory plug-in on this bike), which I can only imagine retards ignition timing.

Forty mpg US under these conditions sounds promising to me. Do you think he'd have done a bit better cruising first-world blacktop at 75?
