    i wonder how you managed that fuel consumption with your 650.
    and with the oem exhaust.....
    maybe this is the average of the three bikes?

    I’ve been planning since I first saw this ride report.

    Just have to find the time to do it. I’m going to stop by Polamer today to ask about shipping my moto from Chicago to Poland. They mostly do paczki but also ship cars, so motos should be easy. I always wanted to ride in Poland anyway, especially in the south.

    I have smaller main jets and PAIR system removed. Riding across Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan was very smooth. The land was flat, roads were straigh with almost no traffic. We were riding all the time slightly above 90km/h. Fuel consumption there was really low. I could missed some liters of petrol in my notes, but I assume it could be severals liters only, which wouldn't change the average much. I was surprsed with the value as well.

    You guys don't know but this kind of adventure on bikes is impossible without spending several million dollars on bikes, crew, chase trucks etc.Don't believe me,just ask Charley and Ewan.Your trip is epic.
