94.4 mph average speed gives you two hours for pit stops. I don't understand why anyone would dispute it.
Or, if he had a 40 gallon tank and averaged roughly 52mpg he could have ridden straight. 2 camelbaks, one for the intake and one with a catheter for the outtake and he'd be good to go.

sorry but that story alone stretched you credibility well past the breaking point.
now back to killboy failure and our regular scheduled bitchen.
i may be extra cranky as I'm waiting for parts and the weather here in MN. is fantastic.
Noobfight! Almost as good as a girlfight!

One thing I've learned in my close (very close) to 2 million miles of riding motorcycles and traveling
around road racing as well as tire testing for Metzeler,Michelin and other tire companies is: The less
a person does in their life (or with their life), the more the tinyist stories they hear becomes a tall tale
to them. The more a person does in their life (or with their life) the biggest stories they hear are still
not even close to tall tales to them.

It's all a matter of how small and boring a persons life is that dictates what is a tall tale is to them...
The more you know about life,the more average so called tall tales look to a person...

I'm glad my life has never been small or boring because it makes me able to enjoy everyone I meet
stories they have to tell with an open mind....
