Hey guys, I got a temporary consulting contract from a customer, I have to supervise a project that needs my presence full time, the thing is that it is 128 kilometers round trip to the customer's facilities and my home. :blink:

The big red pig has a small fuel tank, just 2.3 gallons, I have to fill it daily, thinking about installing the Acerbis 5.8 gallons tank. It likes to eat rear tires, have tried Dunlop and Pirelli, next will be Kendra or maybe Metzeler, at this pace I will be changing rears every other month!!.

I have to commute 8 km each way to the golf course every second day, does that count, when I was working years ago I had about 70 km each way to work , had a nice triumph, I use to fill up in the morning then again when I got home, it was a pain but made it work, I probable could have made it there and back on one tank, but didn't want to chance it, was all part of the fun as long as it wasn't raining.

Last week I had to do a 300 km round trip down to a LNG facility, filled up when I reached down and again when I reached home.

This is starting to get annoying, the hardest part of the rainy season is here, I'm getting soaking wet every day on the way home, luckily it has been raining on the afternoon only and not in the mornings when I'm going to work, touching wood!

You have a good point, I'm going home until Monday, that should be enough time to get my boots dry after a weeks worth of wet feet, lol.
