as long as I had fun the mileage was perfect
I'm with roadiemort on this one. I go for smiles per gallon!!!
For whatever it's worth, I'm pretty consistent with turning reserve somewhere between 160 and 180 (depending on how much smiling I'm doing!)
I agree with the habit of becoming very familiar with reaching down with your left hand to flip reserve while on the fly. Don't know if this is common to most, but my bike seems very responsive. From the moment I detect a slight hesitation I can reach down, turn, and we're clear in about 4 seconds.
