    It's good, but this is constant 80mph in 6th, with just the top box
    on.

    Mind you, I can also get that from the GSXR in the same conditions.

    That's just bad planning. My first B12, the standard one, would return
    a rock-solid 30mpg, unless it was caned savagely. It would do a FOT on
    a tank without a problem, although refuelling at the far end was de
    rigeur. Starting with a full tank wouldn't need reserve on a FOT, even
    with a goodly WFO proportion.
    Birds, see: drink like fish, don't know their limits.

    I wish those cunting paramedics would get back in their Iveco vans.

    Today, on the way home, happily doing 60 through the 40mph roadworks on the
    A48, I spot blue lights to the rear. I could clearly see a Merc car in the
    mirror, thought, "oh ****" and pulled into the nearside lane. As the Merc
    pulled level I could see the green/yellow pattern on the side indicating a
    paramedic RRV...

    I'll go to bed when the glass of wine is empty. But some fucker keeps
    filling it.

    It's more palatable if you parse it as 'icky' ;)

    Feck. Even my asthmatic 1992 FJ1200 will better that.

    Well, it sees 95 at cruising altitude on the speedo. God knows what
    that is in 2009 MPH's.

    that's France generally, rather than specific to the hotels there.
