    Those saddlebags are going to get ripped off in the Hero sections.

    No Bucky or Lena for me. I have a new toy to play with. Maybe I'll do a fly by?

    Only about an hour, but was mainly tight pattern work at Platteville so I could avoid all the newb 747 student pilots at Dubuque.

    That’s about an hour more than I logged, you’re winning.

    9 gallon/hr?

    I have been asking him if it’s ready. He said yes. Repeatedly. So he’s been in CO all week. Gets home tonight at 6 and decides he better look at it. He said it would run and die. I told him to take the vent cap and hose off the gas cap. And it ran again. But then the petcock was puking gas everywhere. So I caved in and told him he could ride the 450.

    He wants to tear it all apart this winter and redo a bunch of stuff anyway. But looking at the bike two or three weeks ago would’ve been nice.

    At least we shot gunz between the other stuff…
    600 shells or so between 5 guns….

    I sucked with this gun… maybe got 1/5…
    Borrowed some other gun and turned into a rockstar… struggled to miss ‘em with that thing…

    I should get my gun licence…..

    Was busy riding my bike. We wrapped up setting sections in the morning and spent the afternoon riding them in.

    That's a good estimate. 7-9gph in cruise depending upon power settings and leaning. 9-10gph doing pattern work. 10-12gph aerobatics. I just use 10gph right now to make it easy until I learn the fuel consumption better. It's all a guess since I don't have a fuel flow meter and the float gauges are just a suggestion.:lol3
