Wow, that's 58+ US mpg! What was it without the Hannigan?

Well the original footpeg rubbers are impressive but driving around with a spare ignition key? Maybe get some real dark sunglasses...

I will do a /6 alternator if I can for more juice, but keep it real as they say. Will that work? here's the ride report.

I met the PO in Madrid, you know where they shot the Movie, Wild Hogs. I live right down the road from there, about 40 miles away. It was a good spot to meet because it is about halfway between his house and mine as he lives in Santa Fe outskirts.
We met at exactly noon. I took one look at the bike and thought, Hold on it looks pretty but ride it first! Well after about 9 seconds it was mine in my mind! It handles like new, rides like new and shifts great. Everything (at that point) I thought was perfect!

He loved the Husky and we traded, and swapped the bikes and boxes full of spares we both had and I deicded to ride home. My GF (luckily) was able to be talked into a little road trip so I could ride home if the deal went down. Glad I had her come with me as she drove the Range Rover home and I went for about a 125mile ride!

The bike is absolutely brilliant! Love that little thing and can whip the thing well round the corners up to my house maintaining a constant 60~65mph easily.

Only thing I found that is amiss is the headlight doesn't work, tried a new lamp, but to no avail. Possibly the switch or the fuse ((if there is such a thing) but can't find ONE fuse on the whole bike???!
