Glad to hear it. That first ride after a long spell, I feel ya! Let's see, 1.32/litre = $5.00/gal. I'm in California, paying $4.30/gal. (91 octane) Not to far behind you mate!

Hello Johndog9 I worked it out being more.......4.5 litres to English Gallon which makes it 5.94 or 3.7 litres to a US Gallon which makes it 4.88 a Gallon or $7.86 roughly. But what the hell going for a spin on the RC put a smile on my face so that makes it money well spent.

I think I got to the bottom of this. 1.32/litre=$2.12/liter. 3.79 liters=1 USgal. So, 2.12x3.79=8.03. If my formula is right, you're paying $8.03/gal. Wow! That's twice what we pay. Sorry dude.

Nice, i can't wait to get out on my RC, its going to be at least another month before i get her put back together. The Aprilia is waiting on a new battery, fluid change, and some fine tuning before i get it out.....so i've been trying to rack up miles on the BMW. put 100 miles on her taking her through the canyons yesterday.

gts455-I got a buddy out there with you in Evergreen, he has a Buell 1200ss. Torquey little bastard! He sends me lots of pics and they are just breath taking, you really got it made out there. I plan on doing some canyon riding with him on June 30-July 7, and will be taking the GoPro HD with me. Would be sweet to have another rider with us, if your interested let me know as we can set up some sort of contact info with each other. I am straight so no worries there.jk
