There a few of us, we usually do long distance rides, 100 miles or more, our last trip was on the Cape Fear, Fayetteville to Wilm then to Figure Eight. we try to do that once a year, 165 miles. Do you guys know your range on a tank of fuel? There are few places to top off if needed. We also carry extra jugs depending on the trip. We go up in the boonies !
It ain't girl scout camp up there ! Do you know how to play banjo ?

Dont know about the banjo but would definitely need to learn how to play cause my ski would probably blow up if i ever tried to ride that far. sounds like fun! what is your average speed on a ride like that?

We usually cruise about 40-45 mph, with short bursts flat out, about 62mph, but that takes a lot of fuel. The MSX 140 has a 18 gal tank and gets good range, but a TXI 1200 is the king of mileage and still goes 61-62 mph., I've gotten 165 miles on a tank before.
Do you feel your skiis are reliable enough to do a little trip, 50-80 miles?

Im definitely confident in my riding skills (not banjo skills) for a ride like that. I just dont know how confident i am in my ski yet. I would like to get a few more hours on my motor since i just rebuilt it. I wanted to do a trip from the castle hayne boat ramp to downtown wilmington and back to start off. Not sure exactly how far it is but should be able to do it in a tank. What speed do you feel is the most efficient MPG wise?
