Dry weight 704, wet weight 771.6

How can gas and oil weigh 67.6 lbs? Gas is 39lbs, oil is maybe 2lbs a quart at 5.5 qts that's 11lbs, coolant is 2.5 lbs a qt at 2 quarts is 5lbs

wet weight must include the battery.

39+11+5=55 still 12lbs short.

I'm pretty bored at the moment. :D

Weights drummed into me from my flying days - important for weight and balance calculations done *every* time you fly:
Gasoline: 6 lb /gallon (US) - 6 gallon tank = ~ 36 lb
Oil: 6.5 lb / gallon (US) - 6 quarts = ~ 9 lb
Water: 8 lb / gallon (US) - 2 gallons = ~ 16 lb.

That's getting up there.

Yeah when on their side they are blinking heavy even without the blinker fluid.

When I broke my throttle cable last weekend I had just filled the tank ready to ride about 200 miles to the next fuel stop. I sort of feel sorry for the guy who had to push it up onto the truck to get it back to Christchurch.
