I live just south of Indianapolis, IN.

This is a good opportunity to ask everyone to please put their location in their profile. Use the User Control Panel.
That way it shows up with every post and we will know where you are from.

This is for the non-Aussie punters... I live in the left half of Australia :smile: and love to play in the 'circle'. It's all desert country... not your Sahara type desert full of dunes but maybe more like your Baja desert. We still have some dunes but they are more like wind-rows but 100 times bigger (I think). Perth is south-west of the circle. It takes me the best part of a days ride to get to the nearest edge of the circle (~400 miles).

To give you an idea of scale - according to Wiki the driving distance from LA to NY is 2780 miles. Well, to drive from Perth to Kununurra (north-east corner of WA) is 2000 miles.

G'day Farcall. I'm heading down your way in a couple weeks. Will be in Perth until May 20th seeing some mates.
Looking forward to it, 30 yrs since my last visit ( and 40 since I lived there )
How time flies !

I will, we got lots of rain to spare lately, and cold. Image

If I could drill a hole in my floor I'll come out 700 kms south of Albany.

I'm up in the Perth hills, Mundaring way.

Farcall. you got yer bike together yet?
From your sig it looks like you have a very similar set up to mine, what sort of fuel consumption yer getting with the FCR?
on daily commute I'm getting around 52 MPG (imp)- 18.5 KM/l with mine, which is just a tad more thursty that the std set up was
