Bajaj Pulsar DTS 180

I have now just filled up for the 3rd time after getting my Pulsar 180.

With the very first tank I got 4.663 litres per 100 km or 21.45 km per litre.
Then I had the bike serviced, and then got 2.926 litres per 100 km or 34.18 km per litre.

I found out that I had a lose sprocket on the rear wheel, and had that fixed.

I am also trying to ride the bike in a more economical way, and with the last tank I got 2.868 litres per 100 km or 34.86 litre per km.

I think that is pretty good for the bike carrying just over 100 kg of rider.

This tank I will attempt to get the to 40 km per litre mark, but I doubt it is possible with the hills and valleys I have to travel through from Edenvale to Sandton.

I also got the right front indicator replaced as the same time the sprocket had to be fixed, so now she is ready to go through roadworthy. If all goes well it will happen later this week, or early next week.

On the 16th March we are joining a geocaching group on their bikes, and going for a bit of a geocaching run in the Hartebeespoort dam area. It will be very interesting to see what consumption I get on the "open" road, and with a pillion (my daughter). Anybody care to join us?
