Trip

Took the '12 Versys from South Texas to Salt Lake City and back, about 3,000 miles round trip. Day 1, 600 miles, day 2, 700, day 3, 200 miles.

Went to the Ford Racing Octane driving school.

On the way back Day 1, 650 miles, day 2 850 miles (ouch).

Fuel consumption between 50 and 55 mpg at 70 mph (actual). GPS says occasional blast beyond 100 mph. Scottoiler took care of the chain with a single refill in Salt Lake city.

Camped 3 nights, hostel 3 nights. Hostel $25/night. Camped at abandoned water tank outside Roswell, NM; decommissioned microwave tower outside of Moab, UT and at a closed rest area on I40 on the way back south of Albaqurqe, NM.

The Versys performed like a champ.
