We are leaving the Local rides of N America for later, Vnam this spring, then some local riding between house projects, sometime in Nov to mexico then possibily back for that 1st birthday in Feb 2020 some time , after which we head south picking up the pace to get on the favorable weather pattern as we go south. Once again considering central America as local we want to concentrate on South America, really want to spend some time in Brazil. the extra fuel is due to not having, up til now, a fuel guage ,which are not much better than an odo check n real world math. Bought it for our RTW bike project so just thought I would use it as the Left side looks like not much is needed to adapt it, just waiting for the mount coming in shortly. Your mpg is what we have seen on our short miles we have ridden, just abit more fuel for those bad decisions by passing the last gas times n we have a by fuel stove for any camping we may do.
