Ethanol is... 117-octane, so it's potent octane-booster. Much better than those little bottles you get at FLAPS. I've been getting very good results with E85 on boosted vehicles. Downside is that -OH...

Yeah, any time you brake or increase throttle, it decreases your MPG. There was guy that got 90mpg out of Ninjette. Did extreme hyper-miling techniques such as going 50-60mph on freeway or EOC on...

Yup, you'll also create balance mismatch at limit that I find dangerous. Front-end will let go before sticker 140 rear, which is much, much more difficult to catch than rear going out first like with...

I've taken mine on trips between San Francisco and Santa Barbara. That's about 5-hrs if I take boring hwy-101. Or about 6.5-hrs on more scenic hwy-1 along coast. No problems whatsoever.

Yeah, it's called periodization. If you do two of same ride in week, you missed out on different ride that would've been better for fitness & improvement than repeating ride you've already done.

Piece of cake, you can totally do it! Unlike steerer, there's no adjustment needed. Grease bearings, replace O-ring seals, slap it back together and that's it!

I have little faith that out criminal justice will deal him sentence which fits that crime. Most likely slap on wrist: time-served, suspended sentence and community service.
