I don't understand why keicars don't get even better mileage than they do. I love your truck though.

I have a kei car here, I only manage about 32 mpg here in Japan, but I don't thin that most cars would get near that in the traffic crap here. Top speed is about 85 mph.

With the Honda Beat, it's all about that extremely short gearing. If you could change the gear ratios, you could probably get way better mileage.

Yup. They're meant to be little city runabouts. The gearing is not highway-friendly.

Good. Even know this is completely off topic.

I know that 900mi isn't that much. Most of my rides are under 20 miles. I have been keeping track of my miles this year and update my signature once in a while. Biking is a good mode of transportation and can save money on gas and car expenses.

Where are you touring at? If you want to make a thread in the "people powered" section of the forums go ahead.

I can't promise that things will be perfect, but I swear I'll never leave.
