98 Octane? The highest you can get in CA is 91 at retail gas station. On top of that CA has special "reformulated" fuel which I think gives us the worst mileage in the country. Even with that, I have done a best of 51 mph on a meandering 35-55mph pack ride. I get 42mph when riding up the freeway at 70-75mph with my large windscreen on. Slow it down to 65 and my mileage jumps to 46 mpg. This is on 89 octane, Hogslayers and Triumph TOR tune, UNI filter.
