Nice one Johno, good to here your out and about mate.
Thanks for the info Johno . Pretty sure I will give it a miss. Not keen on shaking a bike I would still have over 4,000 kms to ride home on. Bitumen for me ! Plus side is the bitumen roads are so much better than Vic.
Cheers and thanks for the reply .
I too am part of the 'premium petrol crew'. Higher octane fuel has its place.
Having only an air-cooled engine (especially riding up north) & with some of us having advanced our ignition timing for increased performance, having an aggressive riding style or riding two-up - some prefer to have the insurance of using a higher octane fuel. It's only a few cents more so not a massive extra cost on a bike and I prefer to have my engine last longer due to less chance of destructive detonation issues.
Enjoy your ride up north GeeBee.
