Olli about 25 mpg all city traffic riding which is roughly the same as what KTM 950 gets. I don't get out to the open roads as much as I would like to but when I do get 35 mpg or thereabouts same for the KTM.

Keithy - every time you EU guys post pictures of the various projects you build from nothing just reminds me I didn't learn squat as far as making stuff in the US education system. I am convinced that if you and Johan got a little more space to work with you could pump out a space shuttle or two in your spare time. I'm still in if the twinnies kit gets going.

I simply relish in learning new things :) I've been sandcasting for 20 years and this is my way of learning lost wax casting technique for another project I have.

I'll try giving John a ring to see how things are tomorrow

Johann seems like my kind of guy :)

U.S. Highland "UHLN" seems to be getting press, just not all good press

http://www.pumpsanddumps.com/

Reports are that UHLN has paid $170,000.00 for penny stock reviews. Penny sleuth issued a Pump & Dump alert http://pennysleuth.com/todays-market-movers-lnkd-gmcr-yum-uhln/

The summation was avoid UHLN at any price.

If you want to hear the words of UHLN CEO John Fitzpatrick check here

Two very differnt pictures are being painted

Hello John

I plan a trip from Germany to Cornwall. We would like to stay a 5 day. Could you give me some recommendations?.
For example city, areas or maybe Hotels.

I would appreciate your help.

Olli

Reverse Stock Split 30 : 1

New Press Release from UHLN is here

http://markets.on.nytimes.com/research/stocks/news/press_release.asp?docTag=201202200900PR_NEWS_USPRX ____DA56027&feedID=600&press_symbol=10808589

A little strange announcing the hire and silent on the reverse 30 to 1 stock split.

If you mean another project then please disregard :)
That is the project I mean. Is it still progressing? I consider my Highland almost unridable in it's current stock condition. I still think it would be a great motorcycle if it would run close to normally. I'm really sorry to hear about John's engine. He hasn't told us what happened. I fear that without him the dual inlet conversion will never happen.

The inlet manifold is still on the cards.....inbetween other projects as it's tied into my venture into investment casting.
