    Today after work i went for 196 mile freeway ride, since it was warm and sunny out! Light cross winds at about 10-14 mph. When i returned home i topped the bike off and was surprised when it stopped at 2.6 gals. Which netted me 74.14MPG..!! The only difference was that i kept my speed about 65mph+/- and i had lubed the chain since i noticed it was pretty dry looking. Must have worked!! :{)

    Heh... I beat that today when i lubed my chain again and made a 99 mile round-trip to a little historic town south of me for some fresh, hot, thick PIE/Ice Cream! Only to find the little mom-pop fountain shop was not seasonally open yet this year. Their little sign said they'd be open May 5th. So i returned home and topped off the tank to find it only took 1.15 gallons to make that 99 mile trip...Hmmm, That's a new personal best of 86 Smiles-to-the-Gallon!! :{)

    Got some cool stuff added to my NC. I recently installed a new-to-me tall factory windscreen, a new MoTech Skid plate, new crash bars, new highway pegs and a new 17T primary sprocket. Liking the highway pegs a lot and i have 2 tanks on the new 17T sprocket with both netting me about 82 mpg!

    That is so cool Tim, I am very excited for you. When you and i met and rode over to Montana i felt i had 1k-1500 miles left on my tires. Not so much, this heat we've had lately is terrible on my tires and just eating the tread away. They are already into the wear bars, so i ordered a new set for the NC this morning and should receive them and have them on next Wednesday! :{)

    I bought a Conti-motion for the front and a Shinko 741 for the rear for now(both were on sale). For my Alaska trip next year however, i will have it shod with brand new Shinko 705's front and rear! I'll be following your NC750 build with great interest/excitement and watching for your trip route so i can plan to meet up with you my friend!! :{)

    I installed a new K+N air filter and a DanMoto exhaust without the baffle and didn't need to... :{)

    Doood... let me know how this works for you. I am looking for a tent to use at the CSM peace rally in September... I hate sleeping on the ground, and that has a nice price point. TIA

    I can tell you already that it is the Bomb! I set it up in my Living Room and tried it out the first day with a NAP! Excellent in every way. :{)
    My eldest son liked it so much he bought one as well. He has already used his out in the woods several times and loves it! They do make a 2 man version, but it weighs a ton! I am 225-lbs and 78" tall and it has plenty of room for me to even stretch out!

    ***Ozark Trail One-Person Cot Tent:
    • Sleeps 1
    • Weight Capacity: 225 lbs.....(right at my weight and doesn't even creak/stress).
    • Cot Size For Sleeping: 85" x 36"....(plenty of room for you).
    • Tent Size: 99" x 72".......(plenty of room for your gear inside out of the weather).
    • Padded Cot
    • Included rainfly
    • Mesh curtain for bug protection

    So the Jury has returned with a verdict!! I love the new Cot/Tent! It rides nice and handles well on the NC. It sets up quickly, has plenty of room, it sleeps very comfortable with plenty of rolling around room, and packs well for the next stop. I am planning on removing the Custom bracket though and just strapping it from the passenger peg and the rear rack under the top box. Plenty of room and no need really for the bracket. The straps are plenty strong and still very functional!! :{)
