Put another 2100km(1200 miles) on the clock
during the week-end.
Had to add some oil as the BC signalled me with <!>. That was already the second time during 8000 km so totally I added 500 ml of 15W-40 BMW. Looks like it takes around 100 ml each 1000 km( like BMW cars 15 years ago).
The average speed was around 160 km/h(100mph). Sometimes I maintained that speed during several hours non-stop at the air t =+23 C/26 C. No overload( I did not carry the side cases). But rare "shots" up to 240 km/h. Just not to asleep :-))
Another strange thing - the BC showed fuel consumption of 5/5,3/5,7/6,2/6,5 and finally 6,8 litre per 100 km. I did not reset the trip meter after each re-fuelling and engaged cruise control a lot. But the reading is definitely wrong.
Rode in heavy rain for few hours. If the speed is higher than 80 km/h(50 mph) - no need in the rain gear.
