Rode down to Charleston over the weekend to visit family. Hot as hell but a nice 400 mile ride. This was the first really good shakedown for the pan, not a hitch.

Did it on the Pan? That's awesome.

What kinda distance are you getting between fuel stops? I'm having trouble putting a smaller tank on my shovel because it gets shitty enough mileage as is.

I calculated my mileage to be about 55mi/gallon...so Im getting close to 100 miles before I hit reserve. After that im not sure, but I know I get at least 10-15 more miles.

I like to sit near the window where I can see my wheels too. Just a weird habit.

I thought so...they's nice and shiny.

I wouldn't Armor All the seat though. Your ass'll slide right off.
