milage getting better

now i have 2500 klm on bike my milage has jumped from 18 per liter too 22.5,you guys were right about it getting better,it will be one month old tommorow,changed oil at 100,then 1000 k,now at 2500 its looking very dirty through the site glass,i took a very windey road today[vernon kelowna westside]no traffic so could push the bike hard as i wanted but found short shifting at around 7,000 rpm was the way too go fast,the front brakes are awsome and not much pressure needed,i think the bike would give a sport bike a run for its money on this road,i cant see much being better than maybe a super motard or ktm super duke,it just seemed my wee strom was made for it,i did knotice my left hand gets tired,not sure why as clutch is an easy pull

I usually skip over your posts but, as mod of this forum, I'm obliged to read them. Is it really that hard to use the shift key every once in a while?

But seriously Chris you do sound like you are really having a blast on your bike even if yourpostsareabithardtoread. You live in a really beautiful part of the country to be riding a V-Strom

All I'm saying is try the odd capital letter and period.

You're smart enough to find and access this site, I bet you can manage the odd bit of punctuation too.

Don't take your puck and run home, just because someone asked you to make a very small extra effort. :rolleyes:

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Maybe I'll just keep nagging for now?

Here's your first English lesson, Swanny . I'd like a 200-300 word essay on how learning curves and motorcycles relate to the following poem:

mr youse needn't be so spry
concernin questions arty

each has his tastes but as for i
i likes a certain party

gimme the he-man's solid bliss
for youse ideas i'll match youse

a pretty girl who naked is
is worth a million statues

That's enough ernest estlin for today...

I comma for one comma enjoy your posts full stop.
