Went for what will likely be the last rides of the season, this past Thanks Giving weekend.
 On Sunday 2:24PM on Oct 9,2022:  "A day that will live in infamy",  just  2  kilometres from returning home, I was attacked by a swarm of Japanese "Zeros" !

Well done!! And take pride in knowing that this 100,000 KM baby is a better model than the one you bought off of the showroom floor with all of your continual mod updates that you've shared with us over the years. 
Now I have to wait for the next photo (second rollover)
thank you ,

Almost forgot the "Icing on the Cake" !

52.84 MPG  @  100 KPH (max).    .6214  Kilometers per mile &  4.54 L = 1 Imp. Gal.   Used all 3 decimal places     This is the 4th time for this mileage so now have a solid base-line.
Look out "55" .....Next year I'm coming for you !    ( Double platinum plugs and Gold Plated Coil and Spark-plug connectors ! )

Those are great numbers for a carbureted engine and you might squeeze 55 Mpg out of her but I think the only way to improve on that number is closed loop fuel injection. The fuel injection on the ZN1300 is open loop- i.e. no feedback to alter the fuel program so it's not much better than a carbureted system. Close loop monitors O2 and the fuel program is adjusted accordingly.

Carburetor Fine Tuning, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Scotch. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new jet /needle settings. To seek out new power and fuel mileage heights. To boldly go where no man has gone before!  Plate # NCC-1701-E
