Thanks everyone for passing along the fuel information. I will start using reg again. And will put some B-12 Chemtoll in bike to help carbs.
By the way, Portland-Gresham is now paying $2.39 Sunday PM and now $2.45 for regular on Monday PM.
Are they getting us or what. Not driving any hybrid car but keeping the bike on the ROAD.

E10

Most of the manufacturers are now coming out with statements recommending E10 for bikes. Even HD (who recommends high super octane) has issued a press release informing their riders that E10 is good, and is better for the environment. Since 89 is cheaper than 87, I have started using it, and found no difference in performance between 87 and 89. I have found a difference using super unleaded. Performance was worse instead of better.
