Rider reports 168 mpg on Royal Enfield

To make it from Mexico to Canada on only 10 gallons of bio-fuel, motorcyclist Geoffrey Baker will have to average 170-180 miles per gallon (see previous post) on his diesel powered Royal Enfield Bullet.

"A test run this morning got me 168 mpg... so I'm getting there!" he reports. Baker hopes to start his border-to-border road trip around Aug. 1. He envisions a ride of about 1,770 miles border to border.

Among his sponsors are:

Motogadget, supplier of custom motorcycle electronics.

Motion Pro, maker of motorcycle controls and cables.

Grecycle, biodiesel manufacturer of Tucson, Ariz.

Classic Motorworks, the U.S. importer of Royal Enfield motorcycles.

Carroll Stream Motor Company, supplier of Yanmar engines and parts.

His ride will be covered by Overland Journal magazine.
