    That's about what I averaged on my R100S as well. They only time I did better was when I was traveling and was able to put on highway miles with non-ethanol gas. That got me about 40.

    That's what I did when I won an eBay auction for a BMW airhead. Rented a UHaul, brought my own tie downs and hauled her home.

    Congrats on the RS. I think you're going to like her.
