NEW THREAD from (Bump Start)

I took my bike for a shake down and endurance run yesterday.
All went well.
I didn't get clocked however, ( where's the cops when you want one).

The trip from my house to town, through town and back up the lake road, ( a circle) is about 10 miles.
I made it to the beach which is about 6 miles, on a tank of fuel.
The tank is one pint.
So if my arithmatic serves me right that computes to about 48 mpg. ( 8 pints X 6 miles)
For yous who wasn't reading the other thread, (Bump Start) I put an old Weedeated 1700 motor on a bicycle. ( See my clips in the old thread)

So, if I was to ride from here, Michigan, to say California, I would need a 55 gallon drum for a gas tank...!
Hum...! how am I going to mount that...!

Peppy:
very interesting...!
That's getting deep.
I flew R/C for a long time and have been out of it for a long time, but just a couple years ago, I got into R/C airboats and am having a lot of fun building and running them.
