    Sometimes i ride on kinderhook lake but it is too small and polluted looking. I usually keep my skis up at my lakehouse in the adirondacks for the summer.

    Defintiely went thru alot of gas... but the average cruising speed among us all was 50 mph at least.... alot of riding was done WOT for long miles of stretch.... so we were haulin serious ass, but definitely burnin up gas...

    made it from newburgh to Jersey City by the colgate clock on one tank of gas... (fuel alarm went off about 11 times, haha)

    then jersey city around manhttan up east side back into hudson and stopped for fuel about 20 miles short of newburgh.

    then for the ride north.... left newburgh and stopped for gas in catskills at riverview marina.... then continued north and fueled up again at the locks by Troy. Then stopped at Riverview Marina again on the way back... then back to newburgh.

    with that riding style and prolong WOT and alot of fast cruising speeds.... i was getting about 65 miles per tankful on my RXT.... which is nothing unusual for me, that's what i usually get when i ride by myself at home anyways.

    I plan on riding up the hudson again this year tho... want to make it in the fall, i bet it's nice scenery and colors in the fall when the trees and mountains start turning colors.
