I'm sorry for my long silence. The last two months I've ridden my Vetter Streamlined Ninja 250 approximately 16,800-miles. I have over 72,000 miles on my streamliner now. While in Mid-Ohio on July 11th I competed in the local Vetter motorcycle fuel economy contest. After a few years of hard work I finally beat everyone else with 181.6 Miles-Per-Gallon! The reason for the big jump in fuel economy was the special built fuel efficient motor and taller gearing. More information of this event can be seen at: http://www.craigvetter.com/pages/2014-Challenges/2014-Vintage-Days-Challenge.html For anyone interested in riding along in the next fuel economy contest we will be in Wendover, Nevada on August 29th. We will finish in Tooele, Utah. When I'm not loaded down with gear and just cruising down the highway (70-75 MPH) I normally get only 110-118 Miles-Per-Gallon.
