very well put beardslee. It was actually an Iowan, believe it or not, who coined the ethanol is theft line. I sold cars for eight years, and in the middle of that I spent a boring day in the showroom reading through EPAs fuel mileage guide. Flexfuel vehicles get worse mileage than conventional even on E90, and the numbers work out to an increased consumption of petroleum fuel when one takes the time to do the algebra. But they told us not to worry about algebra, it won't be useful.........

Also I failed to respond to a question. I have stock pipes and stock airbox. I have toyed with some ideas, as one of the mufflers is wounded, but I want to get on the road THEN start changing things.
"Venturered" 80 XS1100G - "DoraMax" getting sort of resto/destro ed.

Yeah it's a pretty blue, but just because you're old is no excuse to buy a bagger. Fortunately I have wrenches.
