There's this little thing on the right side of the handlebar, actually integrated into the grip called the throttle tube. You're supposed to continuously twist it toward you to feed fuel to the engine! Sustain a 110 k/mh ride and get back with us on real world fuel consumption.
Thanks Snooty, Love your version of flattery. You're right I don't speak your metric language I should have kept it simple, km/h is that better? Sorry for the imperfections, I know it must be hard for someone of your bloodline to comprehend (understand). "Throttle Tube" again I apologize for being a bit too technical for you: It's the piece inside the throttle grip that actually allows the twisting motion, no kidding look it up! really, Google it. See, my bad for giving you too much credit on how things work. By the way where do you shop for helmets? It must be difficult to find one for that big head of yours. I'll also apologize to the rest of the board as well because I typically do not post negatively about people but you just have this certain stench about your posts that brings out the worst. As if the UK has the only beautiful scenery to admire while riding, whose the one wearing the floppy shoes now? Stay safe over there and always remember to pretend to be better than you really are!The Peak District - much loved by motorcyclists from across Europe - is the ‘real world’ hence mixed urban-rural. Speed limit is 50mph on most roads except for villages and small towns which vary between 20mph and 30mph. Not that you would have a clue as to where the Peak District is let alone having ever been on any of the roads - some of which are treacherous - or admired the magnificent scenery.
Maybe it is time for you to remove your big red nose and big floppy shoes.
We don’t do k/mh whatever they are?! No such thing as a ‘throttle tube’. A throttle yes, but a tube?! A tube is what they put Smarties in!
Thank goodness for the ignore button. And away he goes forever. Amen!
Maybe the US gallon 20% smaller than Imperial gallon? 20 fl oz in Imperial pint, 16 fl oz in USI seem to be avg around 58 mpg lately with mix of highway and city, which is pretty disappointing from their advertised 70 mpg... Oh well. Maybe I'm riding it too fast ��
