This year I'm planning to actually "compete" and I'm riding my 200cc Chinese SuperMoto bike. The event is like a time/speed/distance rally where you have a defined amount of time to complete the 90 mile loop (easy). It contains rural highways, freeway and city segments. It's low key, fill-ups are done on the honor system (currently) and we all start and finish at about the same time. Good fun and you get to meet other gassavers, talk with the public about your MPG accomplishments, swap stories, look at mods, see other renewable energy systems at the fair and eat gut-bomb fair food for lunch. Because bikes don't have credible EPA ratings if at all, we'll all be ranked against each other.
Consider making the trip and start this riding season off right!
Questions? PM me or better yet ask questions on this thread so all can see.
I posted this post here as opposed to the Real Life Get Together section as it is directed towards motorcycles. Oh, cars and trucks are encouraged also, but this year I'd like to see at least a few bikes.
Maybe someone can get a good look at the tire that has 40,000 miles on your Concours.
Personally, I don't believe your claim.

I also have over 40,000 miles on a Dunlop K177 on my Concours, not a car tire.
