I did my first test fuel economy run on my cbr today. I rode with my friend and fellow hypermiler on our ~100 mile test loop between Livermore and Patterson ( CA) . The weather was cool and somewhat windy. We did not ride on the freeways so cruising speeds were 45 to 60 mph. We had some Mexican food for lunch and returned to the starting point gas station and refueled. My results were 1.185 gallons used to travel the 104.7 miles; 88.35 mpg. Alan rode a KLR 650 and got 80mpg. Needless to say we were both pleased. I did make a fully enclosed front fender since my CBR was missing one. MY next mod will be installing taller gearing : 15t on the front and 36T on the rear.
Hypermiling to a better tomorrow
