Played hookie
« on: September 06, 2019, 12:44:43 PM »
Got out around the ranch Tuesday to reacquaint myself with the Beta. Haven't ridden much at all this year. Finally getting around to seeing how far I can go on a tank of gas with the 3 gallon tank. I am at 104 miles right now which is more than I thought I would get, still going!

I'll bet you don't make it past 120!

I went scouting way down south this past Thursday with some guys from Wisconsin.  I was worried about gas on the DR until one of them told me it had a 3.4 gallon tank, "what...no...really?"  I finally filled at 115 miles and still hadn't hit the reserve.
