Question

So, what kind of fuel does everybody use?

Personally, I give my bike no less than the best. Despite the high prices, I always keep premium in my tank.

My car however.....

I have seen some pretty big threads on this one. I use 87-89. It was explained to me once about why the higheer octane was not necessary (other than lower compression) and it made sense. Wish I could remember what that explanation was...

I use the high octane(93). One advantage of the VTR's peanut-sized tank, it rarely costs me more than $5 to fill it.
