Is the R1150GS the best oil head GS?
Good heavens , if that's the highways I had to ride my Guzzi's on I'd sell them :( . Peter
Ely to Tonopah on U.S. 6: 170 miles between gas stops. At least thatís how it was twenty years ago. My 7.5 gallon Concours almost didnít make it, though I was running quite a bit over the speed limit.
100 miles don't scare me and the 8.5 gallon tank on my Stelvio NTX. I did a run a few weeks ago from Paso Robles to Ojai. Given the route (58 East, through Carizzo Plain National Monument, then 33 South) it was 160 miles without seeing a gas station. Got lunch in Ojai, but not gas, because I still had a lot.A while back, I rode from Baker, NV to Caliente, NV (140 miles). Stopped for gas there, just to have something to do. But pretty sure I could have made it all the way to Las Vegas (300 miles) without stopping. The Stelvio will run 45MPG all day long on the open road. I saw a few riders with gas cans strapped to their bikes, and just smiled atop my gigantic gas-camel.I like the idea of carrying a small siphon. Though if it's on my Stelvio, I'm pretty sure it will only be to remove gas for others.Why was that big GS so thirsty?
Here's a scary scene and sign not far from Elko, NV. Sign says "Next gas 179 miles":
Yes Tonopah is not the end of the world but it is near the edge and and you can see it from there. My wife's best friend grew up in Tonopah. I've had dinner years ago in the hotel, it was excellent and unexpected in such a remote location. I like Nevada a lot but Reno is no longer the country's "Biggest Little City." kk
