Did 158 miles today.
From Las Vegas to Overton, 62.7 miles on 0.9 gallon = 69 MPH, cruising at 57 MPH typical. Never over 60 MPH.
Cruised about 62 on the way back, but have not filled the tank.
Tailbone is sore! Gel pad probably helped...but not enough.
729 miles on the clock.
The pond is Rogers Spring, about 40 miles out. The water is warm.

Twin 2014 TW200's made side by side on the assembly line, Moose rear racks, Protaper ATV high bars, DG oval pipes, kick starters, rejetted carbs, 130 main jets, 2 -3 -.020 shims on the needles and @ 2 1/2 turns on the pilot screw, #34 pilot jets, Acerbis hand guards, Shinko 241 front tires, modified Krator foot pegs, 14-55t sprockets, Ricochet skid plates and 90 degree fuel filters.
Since I refueled in Overton, I had plenty of fuel for going on a side trip to Valley of Fire State Park, but my tail bone was already sore at the 75 mile mark...and I did not want the sun in my eyes returning home to the west, since my full helmet has no visor.
Before going that distance (seems strange to label 158 miles as "distance", since I did 460 mile days on my Bonneville) again, I need a different seat. Wish I could get a Seat Concepts already mounted on a pan.
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
