After figuring out that even at 29.6 mpg in my pkup, it cost me $6.50 / day, I decided to get over my wuss side and ride. Sun angle is high enough early now that people will see me. I rode 21 mi. one way, took 1:05, figure 50oz. of gas for the trip @ 90mpg (0.39g) + 1.7 oz. 2T Amsoil = $1.94. When I get back to S. City from Bridgeton, I will put in 1/3 gal. and 1 oz. 2T and be ready for tomorrow.
As this was my first "long" ride in a while (long for me, thus far), my ass hurt a bit and my hands and feet were "ringing". I know that length of ride sounds comically short to some of you... but man it was great! Wore my docs, bomber, DOT beanie, shades, took off rings and watch, changed shoes when I got here. Screw OPEC and the whole complicit bunch of fools, I'm ridin' where I go like 90% of the time if I can now.
