Something strange about your mileage
i get 380 miles Randolf to Centralia and 170 Centralia to Annapolis via Millersburg

Discussion should also cover what we really want to see/do as opposed to trying to hit everything.

Well, you might be able just to rename the file from .pdf to .gpx. Alternatively, I've sent you a PM where you should be able to download the file.

I see the error with the last two days. The 180 is the dualsport ride only, making the remaining tarmac on the last day. Will fix on the next rev early next week.

PM sent with email address

It looks like I 'need' to drive to Detroit this weekend so I won't be able to make it Sunday am for trip planning.

I'm happy to help in anyway with planning. Just can't make it Sunday.

getting ready....

Just mounted one of two two gallon spare fuel cans (PegPacker) in place of the right passenger peg.

I don't think it will be needed. Any thoughts?

I've got a second one if someone with a GS on this trip wants or thinks it would be a good idea.

thanks for the heads up

Guess you get more out of a tour if you understand the language!

Thanks for the heads up.

I am not sure how much Dana or Marty are going to carry but since I am riding the GSA and have almost 10 gallons of fuel I won't be carrying any extra. Dana has gotten, if I recall correctly, almost 240 miles on her tank. Now I don't know if the F700 that Marty still has the EPA gas neck thing in the tank but that is worth quite a few miles extra when pulled out.

I have done no mods to the gas tank.
I am planning on carrying 2 one gallon rotopax but am concerned that will not be sufficient fuel if the gas pump at the end of Trans-taiga is not open. Hopefully they will know at Mirage.
My gas mileage is about 50mpg on the highway since that is most of what I do. The computer shows 70 when I am going 30/35. It will be a crap shoot.

There is a potential that a two gallon aux tank will be avail through the parallel twin thread at the end of the month. my hope is that I can get one and get it installed before we leave.

When we were doing the Tran Lab I think once we got our gravel legs under us we were pretty consistent at about 45 to 50MPH conditions permitting, so gas mileage should be pretty good if it is similiar.
