    Yes, I use AAA. I have had AAA for years for my wife's peace of mind and when I got this bike last year I added the bike coverage. In fact I just used it a couple of weeks ago when I had my flat.

    Changed out the flat Michelin on the rear with a Shinko 705. I went up to the 170/60 instead of the 150/70 because I think that a slightly wider tire is better than a taller tire. Of course a little...

    Yes, there is a difference. a US gallon is about 3 and 3/4 liters. Imperial is about 4 and a half. I would expect your mileage to be about 90 miles per Imperial gallon or about 20 miles per liter....

    Mine sits outside only at work but unlike most people here I don't cover because of rain, I cover because of sun. Basically my cover stretches from the top box to the handlebars shading the seat and...

    I stopped for fuel on my way home tonight. When I got home I recorded my mileage on Fuelly and felt the number was familiar. When I grabbed the receipt from two days ago I noticed that the dollar...

    Count me as another that would not have bought an NC if it took premium fuel. Buying a vehicle because it gets good mileage then putting premium in it is like buying Ramen then boiling it in cognac. ...
